Re: Bike dies at idle. HELP please

The main relay is under the seat. It should have 10-12 wires running to a harness and the harness plugs into the relay. You'll need the factory manual since it tells you how to troubleshoot the relay.

Alright I'll go down to the shop an get one and test it. How would the relay affect the engine at idle when it's cold? It kinda could make sense it's electrical cause my left turn signal in the tail light stopped working as well. Thanks!

Only your left turn signal is out and tail light?

Only the left turn signal in my tail light. So the back left turns LEDs. But that's unrelated actually. I just need a new taillight prolly.

Re: Bike dies at idle. HELP please

My '06 did that today. I was thinking that it might just need the air filter cleaned. I had a gsxr that had the same problem, and this was the cause. The dust in the air down here in AZ is horrible. Anyway, I haven't had time to check and see if this is the problem with this bike. I just bought it, but it only has 5,000 miles on it. If I can figure it out I'll let you know.

I've cleaned mine to try and fix it. Helped cause mine was filthy but no solution. Valves and throttle body alignment is next.

Re: Bike dies at idle. HELP please

I'm having the exact same issues with my 07 that has 20k miles on it. Didn't start doing it until after I installed my PC5 and autotuner about 2k miles ago. Mine doesn't do it every time on a cold start but probably 70% of the time. Does yours do it every time?

It started out only sometimes but now it's pretty consistent. I don't have a PC though. Have you ever done a valve adjustment?
