03 r6 rough idle
hi im new to this forum and also new with bikes. I bought my r6 last summer with about 6k miles and it was running great. However a month or so into the season it started having idle problems. The idle cut in and out and it got so low that sometimes the engine would just die. so i had to turn up the idle a bit to like 1800, but it would still sometimes cut in and out. And it didnt just end there, it also, maybe 3 or 4 times the whole season while riding would just die when i pulled in the clutch and when i let go rpms would go back, it would also back fire really bad when this happened. Also when it would idle bad i would turn off the bike and put the power comander in program mode and it would idle fine, and sometimes come back but sometimes not. Could it be a faulty power commander? or maybe the coils? i still have to check whether i got the bad densos or not. And one more thing while riding, keeping the rpms steady at like 5k, the rpms sometimes drop a bit then go back up causing a very tiny jerk.
well im determined to fix this problem before i start riding again so any suggestions will be much appreciated.
