As far as idle being too low, i don't really understand this statement or opinion, as I have zero problems accelerating from a stop at any speed, whether for crawling traffic to launches. I can't help but think these people need to work on their fundamentals more.
Hmmmm...even though my battery is brand new maybe I should have cyclegear load test it and top it off just to eliminate that. But then why are so many people on here stating that they are noticing the same symptoms/characteristics on cold start? When your 09 street R6 starts right up, does it cold choke and lower down? Or just start and stay at 1500-1200?

I'm baby sitting the nephew atm, when my sister comes by to pick him up I'll go out and start her up and check for you. I never paid a second's notice to my street bikes start up until I picked up the track bike and sounded like something was off.

Can your R6 do cartwheels and still live to ride another day? Pickpockets and mine do!

Any words of wisdom? Does your 08+ do this? Any education on what I've said here would be greatly appreciated!
Try changing your battery. When I bought my '08, it had 1300 KM on it, and after a week of sitting the battery would be dead. If I rode it everyday it would start (although a little weak).

I put a new battery in it that winter (of '08). Never had any issues cranking, starts within 2-3 seconds. I had it outside when I went to uni in the freezing, and the rain, and it never hesitated to start properly.

My cold idle speed is somewhere around 1800rpm and then drops to 1200-1300 when warm.
No more noticeable engine chatter than normal for a Yamaha.

My bike has been down (its a rebuild).
I would change the battery (or see if you can borrow one from somebody for a test).

For the oil, double check your oil level, if my level is below the halfway marking on the dipstick (still acceptable), I will have the oil pressure light come on if I go a bit too hard before everything is completely warmed up.

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

My 11' with under 500 miles does pretty much the same thing. by no means am I complaining becasue within a miniute the bike is pretty much warmed up and acting like it should. I just wonder how much an ECU flash will help with cold starts. anyone flashed their ecu?

What else would he compare to? Maybe his car...ya that sounds about right. Move the ***** on my friend.
The force is strong with this noob. Is it spring already?!

He is referencing an aspect of the bike as being pathetic, therefore would he not be stating his bike is pathetic. I'll assure you, this is not a pissing match of what bike is better. They all have their pros/cons, and I've experienced most of those. My reason for making a statement, is so far the only threads the OP has made is him bitching and moaning about his R6. He can keep that shit with his momma.

We're all happy to help a fellow forum member/rider to the best of our abilities. Pissing, moaning, and general douche baggery can find their way to the door. You will learn this as well, if you learn the ways of the forum.

I'm thinking we're averaging about one of these guys a month here lately. Maybe two this month. The jury is still out on VK56.
