If those are for sure your measured clearance, some of them are ''out of spec''. Hardly at all, but.. You know.. Just something to think aboot. Weather or not that tiny fcuking bit matters, I don't know! Hoping someone else would like to chime in on that.

Or am I trippin'??

From the manual:

Thanks man, I appreciate it. Yeah they were a C-Hair out of tolerance (by my measurements) and I re-measured last night while I had the bike apart again, so I am booked to get them checked anyway. Bike is on the trailer in my garage ready to go to the shop this weekend. I just kept it ripped apart so I hope I can save on some shop-labour prices. It was my first time checking the valves as well, so I may have missed something.

Watching the video that posted previously, it is EXACTLY my issue I am having, so I am going to bite the bullet, drop the cash and have a certified mech look at it. The shop gives me a good rate and military discount, so for the cash, I will have piece of mind.

I am doing an ECU swap tonight with my buddy, just to rule that out as well. I'll post after the ECU swap tonight and let you guys know what's up. If that doesnt solve it, I think the only thing left is the valves.

Oh yeah, nice hit on the "aboot" as well, made me laugh.

I just always heard if its a valve issue it gets worse as it warms up and like you mentioned, once the bike is warm the issue goes away. Let me know if yours is fixed after the valve adjustment!
I'll let you know for sure.

Well, hey, if piece of mind is worth more then the cost of having it done, nothing wrong with that. Really hope they cut you some slack, because it's taken apart already. They should anyway.

I'm just not convinced the problem ISN'T the valves. Mileage doesn't mean a lot, apparently. I have less K on my bike then yours, and mine were all sorts of fcuked up.

I like to slip a aboot in wherever I can. Also a Canadian.

Yeah the mech said that a big chunk of the time is just getting at the valves, so I should be good. The cool thing is that he is good with me hanging there to watch him adjust the valves, so I can learn how to do it, so I'm pretty stoked about that.

The ECU is just another troubleshooting bit I want to try. I have the opportunity with my buddy, so I figured I might as well eliminate that as a cause as well.

These bikes seem hit and miss with the valves for the amount of km on them. I have heard some guys who have +30K MILES on the bike and have no issues with valves, wheras others have issues at 12k Miles. In the end, I have pretty much exhausted my mechanical talents (or lack of talent) and am happy to turn it over to the mechanic. At least I tried and did what I could for troubleshooting. After I watch him do the valves, I'm sure I'll be confident to do them myslef next time.

Is it snowy where you are? Solid rain in sheets here in Victoria for the last couple weeks.

Yeah raining like a bastard out here. Sounds like your entire city is going to be a skating rink! Time for some snowmobiling for you.

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

Okay, so it's not the ECU. Swapped it out with my buddies and it was all good. I put my ECU in his and no issues, he put his ECU in my bike and the same issue was there. When I called the mechanic today that I spoke to before he said he thought I had a PC III on the bike (not sure if he was back-pedaling or what), but anyway, he isnt the guy that will be working on my bike. Anyway, they think its the valves now and that I just haven't noticed anything after it warms up.

It is going to the shop on Saturday for a valve alignment (I hope this is the issue and that I had some rectal-cranial inversion when I checked the tolerance). If this doesn't fix it, I will be at a loss, becasue I have pretty much chased down everything else at this point. Will post again when I get the bike back, unless anyone has anymore suggestions before it goes in.

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

Fcuk, I don't know.

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.
