2007 R6 starting issue

Hello my fellow riders !! I have a questions, I recently had surgery and left my bike sitting for a couple of months in my garage, now that I try and start it up it cranks starts but later shuts off. I bought the bike with 2k miles and now it has 18k hasn't had a valve adjustment yet and all the maintenance is up to date I will try to post a video of it whenever I can but I would love your guys feedback !!!!

How many months was the bike in storage? was it stored with fuel? It could be old fuel for sitting in the tank for too long.

Battery and running voltage tests okay? We've seen batteries be a factor in unexpected behavior.

I changed it before I had the surgery to make sure it wouldn't die while I was recovering but I haven't checked the voltage

what is your logic in doing this?? Anytime a bike sits say for a month... Im draining the fuel and removing the battery.
Starting the bike does you no favors.

2nd... you should be checking the valves at least every 10,000 miles.
Why? Think about how much actual work the valve train is doing in 10,000 miles and who knows how many running hours on the engine.
Race duty engines get the springs and valves changed every 500-700 miles.

Can you go longer? Sure but if the valves were tight (most common) the bike would not start at all.

Also when starting the bike... you have to hold the start button for at least 4 seconds...

Agreed.

Can you believe I'm beyond 50k street with no valve lash adjustments? IIRC the manual recommends ~25k for my model/year. Depending on how you shift, (or don't shift,) your maintenance intervals will be different.

my first 2000 zx12 had about 65,000 on it when I sold it in 2003. It made 1 less hp on the dyno at the time of the sale than it did in the summer of 2000 when I had done the bolt ons.
It was a bike that did everything for me... street, drag, land speed, track days, mountain road rides, sport touring, Iron butt, 150mph 1/4 trap speeds, etc. I still have the 2nd one I bought in the corner of my garage. At the time I thought... the Busa & 12... how could the OEMs top that... now Aprilia just released the RSV with the ability to tune the suspension by corner.

Re: 2007 R6 starting issue

Just how Turboblew explained, starting it on and off the fuel can still be old. Drain it and replace. Also check your charging components by testing your battery first of course then move on to the next one.

Your battery should be at 12.4v and no less than 10v to crank if i remember correctly depending on the type of battery you have. you can also take the battery to your nearby auto store, they will diagnose it free of charge.
