i have a '99 r6. when i press the start button it will turn but not run. it will turn on every now and again and run perfectly fine. but then it will randomly nt turn on. i checked the oil and the oil levels are fine. it was just changed out a week or so ago. sometimes when it's on, it will barely even sputter with the throttle wide open. and i usually have to give it a little gas when starting to make sure it doesn't shut off.. anybody have any thoughts?

sounds like an electrical issue.

i just tried to start it again and it started wiht a little throttle.. i road it for a few miles then took it home. turned it off.. now it doesn't start.. after about 20 minutes i checked the oil levels cause the oil light was on again.. i sat the bike straight up and checked the dipstick.. the oil level was so high that it was at the rim of the casing.. i tilted thebike towards the right and oil spilled out of the dipstick hole... i know NOTHING about bikes, but that doesn't look good at all.. could that be why?
