I have a problem with my 99 RS250, it is running really rough and the Rev counter doesnt work, it stays at 1000rpm and the motor sounds 'flat'. The carbs are clean and both plugs are sparking. Any suggestions please ?

Check the charging circuits and the wiring in general.

The battery has 9V across it, could this be causing the problem ?

Yes, check the output of the generator as well.

Dude your battery is flat!...take it out, charge it up, and all should be good

If you haven't ridden the bike for a while the computer drains you battery hence the problem you have...if you only ride the bike once a month or so maybe you should pull the main fuse out after each ride...that way the battery doesn't run flat so fast.

If you have been riding the bike regularly, do as Micah says, also check your battery terminals/connections
