Cool I'm new here and have questions.....please help

My name is Dan and I'm new to this forum. I own a 2003 gsxr 750 . I have a touchy/jerky throttle. I live on a military base so the speed limit is between 20 and 35 MPH. If I go that slow or try to then the bike jerks and its usually around 4000 RPM. I have to put it into either 5th or 6th gear and it will still do it barely.Can someone help please . Also I need to raise the suspension because it has been lowered 4 inches. How do I do that myself? Thanks for looking and possibly helping .

Pretty much what elroy said. You'll be more likely to get someone to answer within a day or two on gixxer.com unlike here where most the members who are still here maybe pop in once every week or so.

I'm not crazy, my mother had me tested.

I have no idea how you ride at 20-35 in 5-6th gear , makes no sense , a gsxr is designed to go around Daytona at 165 mph , anything else you do with it is a compromise , you'll need parts and tools to raise it back up, maybe take it to stan if you don't know what you are doing

is this your first bike? what you describe is not possible but possibly another problem is causing your bike to break up at 4K but the rev limiter is set in the computer and is not something you can adjust
