I heard that the R6 has a cold start problem. Recommend fix was to sell it and buy a Honda and talk about it over here http://www.cbr600rr.com/forum/

Actually he had an * before the first word, so the sentence didn't need to be capped.

*like


You said you have 7k miles?

almost time for a spark plug change, owners manual recommends 8k miles under normal operation, so if you ride hard, or like you said "Daily", I would look into replacing the plugs, and while you are in there pick up some block off plates from Agg racing

(Pic below) What's leads me to think that it's a battery issue, is that after a spirited ride, the bike cranks over/fires up right away! When the bike has sat even say ~8+ hours, it's a whole different story. With all the responses on here about people noticing the same long cold crank time, I'm confused on whether I have a battery issue or not? Or if it is just a characteristic of the bike! How can I "top off" my battery just to trouble shoot? I assume cyclegear and put it on a charger eh?
Get a trickle charger and keep the bike plugged into it to test, or grab a battery out of a buddies bike that starts fine. You've obviously missed my post about the battery in all the shit-slinging going on.

The battery tenders work well. I have two of the Yuasa 900mA chargers myself. Pretty cheap to keep your battery in good condition.

Woah really the plugs are recommended to be replaced at only 8k?! I know everyone's plugs will wear differently based on riding, but for those of you who changed em out at 8K did you notice any of them fouled? Explain the purpose of block off plates. Thanks
