Re: Troubleshooting help

Ok so I got the carb sync tool and synced my carbs, they were pretty off and I got them really really close. I also messed with my air mixture screw a bit more. The bike was still running like crap. I took a look at my vacuum lines and made sure they were all snug, but more importantly I noticed the large line coming from the top of the airbox was routed kinda funny and where it connects to the T piece was not plugged in right. Kind of hard to explain but I switched where they were plugged in, put it all together and took it for a ride. Sucker screamed. So far so good. I'll post back when I put a few more miles on it.

This is where I found some info on vacuum lines: R6 Bogging

Re: Troubleshooting help

so, bike just randomly stalled again. this time it sounded like it was only on 2 or 3 cyl. took apart a bit and found the ignition coils arcing funny. cleaned them all our with rubbing alcohol and reseated them, problem has gone away yet and engine running much smoother....ugggh.

Re: Troubleshooting help

Reviving dead thread just because I started it and I want to end it. This story ends with me fixing it, I think, after repairing the coils, because it never did stall again on me again, but shortly after, it did get dropped and the tranny case cracked, so I sold it over a year ago. now I'm onto another R6, a 2001 streetfighter project.......
