Block offs are not needed if you don't have a fuel management system .... Since you have a stock exhaust you won't benefit from block offs. Search the forum for block offs and you shall find your answer. They are a must if you swap out your exhaust or use a fuel management system.

Re: I still love her....but a cold start on these bikes are pathetic : /

bro.. the quality of the battery means alot..

look at it this way... even tho both batterys are same spec..

as an example say you have 2 double AA batteries.. one is DURACELL and the other is CHINACELL

which one do you think will last longer and better ?

you got a megaboost and you comparing it to a yuasa ? maybe try to get your battery load tested at the bike shop ?

Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Dude, almost positive you have a battery issue. You get what you pay for. Megaboost < OEM Yuasa. I have the same bike as you and live in the great white North (Canada). A few times this fall, I rode the bike every other week and it fired right up! R6's do not have a cold start problem. Good luck and keep us posted.
