has anyone experienced this with their R6? I "think" that is the problem i am having.

The bike will run perfect the first session, then after sitting for a while, it will not start, and the carbs are completely flooded, even into the diaphragm.

I have checked the fuel pump, checked the venting (though i did this when the bike was cool), checked the floats, checked the plugs and they looked fine.

i have been reading about vapor locking online and it seems to be a likely candidate for my issues.

you guys have any ideas? thanks

Could be your case. If it is consitent doing it, open your fuel cap when you park it and see if that makes a difference.

Similar situation happened to me....

During a fast long ride, the bike shut down on its own and wouldnt start back up, I opened the gas cap and a lot of pressure escaped. Then the bike started fine.

Same thing happened a couple of times after that. I inspected the tank and found that the little rubber orange vent at the back of the gas cap was out of place and not functioning. I took off the gas cap and seated the vent properly and so far...the problem hasnt come back...

Not sure if this'll help
