The thottle bodies/carbs must be synchronized WITH the airbox installed or there would be no point in trying to correct an idle problem with it.
i had that problem i took it in to a dealership and it was the ignition coils and they replaced it for free.aptd said:wow, only 8 replies? Christ. hundreds of 6ers have this issue on their 03's and it isn't just that bad batch of PCIIIs that were being distributed. There is a far greater thread with some godo trial and error in it over on that forum as well. But if anybody else has this problem here, check out

I am goign to be working on it heavily for the next month or so and will try to keep this site updated as well.
While each bike tends to be special in its own case, some sysmptoms are the same. The bike cuts off for many reasons and under different circumstances, so one solution won't work for everyone.
Anyways, the list of check offs will be
1.) Coils (Mitsus instead of teh Denzos
2.) Battery (already replaced)
3.) TPS sensor cleansing
4.) code clearing
5.) Electrical wiring
7.) other sensors known to cause shut off
*If anybody else here has gotten their bike "fixed" then respond. Figured more then 1 person on this whol eforum has had this issue.
Thankyou. Cant believe this issue just died. Good ol, "Glad its not me"
the stock ecu adjustment is for diagnostics only and DOES NOT enhance performance.that's exactly what sounds like is happening.

there is also a way to alter the a/f ratio on the stock ECU's. a long read but worth it as it might help you out with racing and everything.
the R6 performance manual thing they mention towards the end can be found here and the settings description can be found on pages 28-32
