Hello R6 riders!
I bought a 2006 R6 5SL as accident damaged - hardly anything - and it seemed to run fine when I bought it.
Mainly I have sourced a few cosmetic bits - but changed the broken timing cover and then did an oil/filter service. Does the ignition timing need adjusting/resetting after being replaced?? There's no obvious adjustment to the sensor as it's clamped down by 2 bolts and cable management bolt.
On starting it up (1st time in about 2 months) it was all over the place hunting cutting out - not running nicely at all....and not how I remember it.
It WILL rev up and is fairly quiet engine wise.... but trying to hold say 2000rpm is hard - it's kicking mainly down - almost randomly. Leave it to idle and a few seconds it kicks down and cuts out.... it sounds like a misfire.
Weirdly the oil pressure light randomly comes on/off. But sounds super quiet - so thinking it's getting pressure - I'm suspecting a faulty switch.
The timing cover has a threaded plastic disc to expose the timing rotor and at the side of it - a bolt that has a key-way cut into the casing - is this for resetting something?
I'm confused that it seemed to run fine when I first got it - now its rough. And I've only changed the timing cover (and the oil/filter).
Any help please?
