you may have a TPS issue. the 2nd gen was notorious for having a bad tps. your's does not behave in the typical way they failed except for the need to keep it revved up manually when you pull the clutch in. I had a friend with an 04 that would randomly stall. it did it for a few years. then it progressed to doing what your's is doing. except it would pull all the way up through the revv range. but still, it has some of that TPS failure indicators.Update time:
I apologize in advance for the horrible wind noise, I just set up this helmet cam and need to put the mic somewhere else with a cat filter, but hopefully this will give ya'll a better idea of what's going on.
There is a video of what's happening to me.
Here are a couple more threads about the issue. I forgot to mention that my bike also completely cuts out when I pull the clutch in.
I might just have two separate issues. If that's the case, this is getting seriously frustrating.
Since my last post:
-Tried 2 different ECU's from friends bikes (2nd gen R6...an 04 and another 05)
-Made sure charging system is all good (replaced battery and rectifier 1000 miles ago and stator is kicking 14v @ 5k rpms).
The threads above seemed to have died and I'd really like to figure out what the heck is going on. I think I stated this before but I also have brand new coils and spark plugs. I still suspect something fuel related.
I know they're $100 but I would suggest you try one. or swap it out for one on your buddy's bikes. it's not difficult to get it off. it requires the removal of the mid fairing frame insert and the side fairing. but you can swap your buddy's tps and take it for a ride and find out if that's it.
