The battery has probably gone bad. Install new battery with battery tender leads. Keep battery tender plugged in when bike not in use.

The float bowl level is set in between running it dry at full loaded throttle and fuel overflowing from overflow hose. The floats have a small brass tab that bears on the needle, when it rises, it pushes needle into seat and restricts fuel. Set this tab level with rest of tab plate surrounds for the middle fuel level position. Bending tab down will let more fuel in, up for less.
Better to put up with a little fuel overflow when you lay it down than starving motor of fuel when you need power the most. Damage can result running too lean.

Full synthetic oil will work the best for your bike. Synthetic has been over-engineered in a good way.

P.S: DO NOT USE car synthetic oil as they have TOO MUCH friction modifiers (not good for wet clutch).

I had the same problem. After throwing all kinds of money at it, like a new battery, new relay, checking the fuses and many other things. I finally took it to a great shop (M Racing in Glendora, CA) and they discovered it was the starter brushes. Now Yamaha sells a rebuild kit for the 06 R1 starters but it's on back order all the way to Japan. Turns out Yamaha Japan knows about this defect and word is it's going to take months before they start producing the rebuild kit again. I'm sure there will not be a "starter recall" as that would cost Yamaha way to much money which is what the worlds all about, right? Anyway, my starter was rebuilt by a mechanic that rebuilds starters and I haven't had no problems with it. Hope this helps and whatever you do, don't take your bike to Montclair Yamaha. Dealerships charge way to much money and don't get the service or quility of work we all deserve.
Be Safe!!!!

More than likely this is caused from a vacuum leak somewhere. The whistling is getting to be a higher pitch once it gets to higher rpms. What I always suggest is to kind of fog the engine and carbs with starting fluid while the engine is running. It will cause the engine to rev up when the starting fluid is sprayed near the leak.

Why don't you contact Yamaha and get them to send you a spare key?

Sounds to me your real problem is charging system, and every time you use anything electrical, that puts the battery below threshold.

If that is the case, then you did not fix anything by playing with the plug, but the battery simply built up current again over time.

The way to tell for sure is to put a volt meter across the battery ($3 for a multmeter at Harbor Freight).
The battery should be 12.5 at rest, and with the engine reved, should read over 14 volts. If not, that is your problem. Could be stator or rectifier diodes. Also make sure all terminals are clean, like the batter cables and engine ground strap.

Don't think anything else could be the cause, because brake lights and turn signals are not connected, except at the battery. So I think you are just running off the battery until it can't anymore.

If you push the starter button and hear a click the starter button is good. If you do not hear a click, put power to the two skinny solenoid activation wires(+ and -), if you hear a click now you have a bad starter button. Clean or replace the switch. Follow the positive battery cable to the solenoid, short across the battery power cable and the starter power cable. If the starter works you need a new solenoid. If you tap on the starter with a plastic hammer while holding the starter button, and it works, you need new starter brushes.If you take the starter apart and the coils are burnt or the armature is shorted you need a new starter.

It sounds like your fuel pump isn't plugged in. The YZF does a "diagnostic check" for the EXUP and fuel pump. If it revs to 7000 then to zero then to 7000 again (3 times) it is the EXUP servo motor or cables or a frozen Exup valve. If it revs to 9000 then to zero three times, then your fuel pump isn't plugged in (which is what sounds like the problem is).

Hope helps.

22 is simple one - air intake temp sensor - very easy to leave this unplugged if you had the airbox off for maintenance.

19 is the sidestand switch - make sure that is plugged in & operating properly. Sidestand needs to be up (Switch made) if bike is not in neutral.
