Re: Need help with my 2000 r6

Okay if i start the bike let it run for a min turn it off an then try an start it again it wont start but if i unplug the fuel pump it will start so im thinkin their has to be a persure relay somewhere bc if the bowls are already full from it ruing an then the pump is pumpin more gas in the bowls so the gas is just pushin though the shut float needles bc i just replaced those with new ones

Does the pump run every time you cycle the key? If you turn it on does it stop, then if you cycle it off/on again does it run again? It shouldn't if the bowls are already pressurized.

Check the float levels then. If their too high the needles will never cut the fuel flow off.

Re: Need help with my 2000 r6

The little metal deal the float needle hangs on has to be bent 1 way or another to raise or lower the float height. if you accidentally bent on even the slightest when you changed the float needles, it can change the float height. Its a real pain in the arzzz to get them right too. If you have never done it, I would consult professional help.
