Hey guys so I have a 2001 R6 and its running really boggy, I cant figure out why it was fine one day but the next day it just started running like trash. Here is a link to a video I made where you can hear it miss fire and run a lil crappy. After I stopped the video I tried to move the bike and left it running then it died and wouldn't start at all unless I was on the throttle but it would stay at 2000 rpms even though I had the throttle completely open and as soon as I let go of the throttle it just dies. So here's the video guys please help me out before I have to spend $500 dollars.

I know my air filter is close to needing a change but the bike has run strong for the longest time. After doing some looking around im curious if it not running on all cylinders. What are your thoughts?

mmm if it was a miss cylinder it would be hard to keep it running at idle. i forgot to tell that would be good if you check R/R plug also it is located down the rider seat. a misfiring cylinder could be electrical issue so might be an ignition coil too.

was anything added to the bike in the time frame of it running correctly to now ? like a fuel cleaner or something ? mine sounded identical after adding stabil to it and it gummed up the carbs . after cleaning them out it ran like new . 2 if nothing was added id check the coil packs . if you can get your hands in safely by the coil packs with removing tank and feed gas or take off side fairings , with bike off unplug one and start it if it stays the same that is most likely cyl not firing . test 1 by 1 . hope this helpd good luck !

The coils are in the valve cover you may need to remove tank and aiir box. That water trick stated above worked perfect for me . from my understanding they are kinda faulty. Can't hurt to clean carbs as well though. Very cheap if done by yourself
