Just thinking out loud... Make 100 percent sure your exhaust is connected and bolted down fully everywhere? O2 bung?

Might as well leave no stone unturned, before it goes in.. The injectors.. Who knows.
Yeah, gonna check the how-to's and maybe run through what i can before Saturday. Thanks, sounds like nasty weather out there, good luck! I'll keep updating this as it sounds like other guys have been experiencing this as well.

Re: HELP! 06 R6 Dies on cold start and wont idle

Sorry for the delay in this, was in the shop a bit longer than anticipated.

Okay so here it is.........shouldn't surprise anyone, it was the valves! The shop did a full adjustment and she purrs like a kitten now and life is soooo good again

So for anyone who has this issue in the future, see OP for the symptoms and I would recommend get your valves checked. Even though I only have 29,000 km on it (~1800miles), it was still the valves. They actually detected some knocking as well, which pointed to the valves right away I guess. I couldn't hear it at all until they pointed it out to me. Anyway, they cut me a good deal on the price ($270.00) so life is great now.

I did get some video of the problem before I got it fixed that I will post in the proper forum to help anyone else in the future diagnose their issue. Thank you to everyone who contributed to this post, I really appreciate your help and the confidence to do my own troubleshooting. Thanks to all of you.

Ah, got the motor together.. Started to put it back in tonight, didn't get far - got sick of it and went home for a nap.


Been sick as a dog lately, haven't had motivation for shit.


Stoked you got it fixed though! That means there's hope for the rest of us!

Thanks man.

Actually went and got myself a big lemon tea, and going to go see if I can't maneuver it in.

Same exact symptoms so naturally it was the valves for me... Only took me a year to troubleshoot. Damn . All 4 exhaust valves were out extremely bad.
