Exclamation 2001 R6 sputtering issue

Just courteous what everyone else thinks.

My 01 R6 when started and worm if I try to give gas to rev the bike it will either sputter and stall, or if I give it gas slowly it will rev up but then take a few seconds longer to come back down to idle. Also when riding to start moving from stopped I have to baby it un till moving and last I start bogging in between about 6 to 8,000 rpm.
I feel that I need to pull the carbs and clean them but just am looking for any other ideas. And I did go threw a couple of tanks of gas with seafoam. Thanks!

Re: 2001 R6 sputtering issue

sounds like it's carb cleaning time. brake cleaner and an air hose is recommended by all manufactures. carb dips are a last resort and should only be done for an hour or so. it's caustic enough to permanently damage the carbs.
