Thanks Glock- Ya you're right about hard wiring them. Harry over at Motodynamic confirmed the same thing. Looks like the PO put some bullet connectors on there. Gonna cut all the wires and hard wire it up! I have hotbodies flushies in the front so if I'm not happy with the integrated turn light rate, I may just get some resistors at radio shack. I'll post up the finished product!

I bought a flasher relay from somewhere online cause I have LED signals in front.. It replaces the stock relay located under the ECU.. That made my Motodynamic IT blink at the proper rate

Re: 2008 CBR 600RR Graffiti owner here...looking into possibly trading/owning a 2009

Ya Glock I saw that relay! I'm doing the hardwiring tonight and I'll see if I can live with the rapid turn flash when I'm done. If not, it may just be easier to order that plug n play relay rather than dig into my flushmount signal wiring again for the resistors.

Any answers/feedback on my questions below? Thanks!

1. Upon cold start, the bike takes almost 4 full seconds to fire up. My battery is brand new and not the issue. When it does turn over, it idles ~1,500. Every bike I've ever owned has fired right up cold and strong and cold idled/auto-choked to up around 2,000 rpm before it crept back down slowly to normal operating temp idle. It's almost like this bike has no cold idle choke? I've read on this forum of people having this same issue. I read there was an issue with the 06 and some early 07's in which the plane bearing for the crank had too MUCH clearance, and when the bike idles, makes very low oil pressure. Is it true that in the 08 revision, Yamaha made slightly wider crank journals to alleviate this low oil psi issue at idle? I'm just worried about this low oil pressure issue coupled with an already low idle.

2. It fires up normally and right away after it's been warmed. Huge difference in time between cold start.

3. What is the correct OEM idle for these bikes? It seems way too low (mine seems to hover around 1300-1200 rpm. It's bouncy as well sometimes. I hate having to rev/throttle it every time I want top take off from a stop in first. My 08 CBR RR would idle pinned at 1,500 and you simply had to ease out the clutch and she'd start rolling. Definitely not the case with this R6. If I did that, it would simply stall.

4. What temp does the thermo start opening? What temp is the thermo completely open?

5. I'm planning on sending my ECU to OhioYJ to be reflashed. I'd like to have the throttle unlocked (taking off the EPA restrictions that close the TB's at high RPM) so basically flashing the ECU back to an 08's. I also think it's a good idea to have him raise my idle to 1,900rpm. My idea is that not only will this provide better idle engine oil pressure/flow, it will also help in first gear take off. I won't need to rev/throttle her so much to take off.

6. When cold, this motor makes a TON of chatter and valve/lifters/clicking/tapping noises. Is this normal? Sorry, I'm used to my CBR RR that was super quiet and smooth regardless of temp and rpm. I remember my old F4i's cam chain tensioner, now that was annoying...like a can filled with BB's. But this R6 is pretty damn chatter-y

I'm assuming you ended up getting it? You'll be happy.
I had an 07 cbr 600rr for a whilea few years back. It was a good bike, but the r6 is definitely a better, more aggressive feel for what I use it for. Then again, I do use it for the track only.
Hope you're liking it!

Yes I agree the 07+ RR's were amazing machines. I commute on my bike so most people think I'm crazy for giving up my 08RR for an 09R6. I must say, the RR is just a beast in torque straight from idle. It's powerband is very linear. The R6 is no slouch, it's just that you don't see or feel the bikes potential until ~10k rpm...then you quickly realize why you bought it

One thing I am really not a fan of with the R6 is how the motor must be revv'ed to get out of first gear while releasing the clutch....the friction/clutch zone is very small and this motor does NOT like anything under 3k rpm in 1rst gear...boggs so hard. Just a little annoying when in parking lots or stop n go etc....with my RR you simply had to let out the clutch and the bike would roll and be ready to go. The R6 needs a little throttle. Another annoyance with the R6 is how WEAK it starts on cold startup. It turns over 6 times then starts up chugging to 1500 rpm. My RR would fire right up (1 crank) and cold choke to 2000+ rpm...just felt strong. This R6 seems to barley want to get out of bed in the morning and when she does, she doesn't seem to want/or have a cold choke function

Mine takes a couple of seconds to start, but nbd.. I'm not a morning person either.. as for the clutch, I learned how to ride on this bike so its fine with me. While learning I actually didn't touch the throttle until the clutch was all the way out.

Did you get that tail light wired up?

Yep the tail light is all wired up thanks! Got a relay in there and she's functioning perfect. Wish I knew how to post a video. Any help? Any free site that I can upload video's to that's user friendly? I'm only used to posting pics from photobucket
