I'm worried that something is mechanically wrong with my bike. While riding at just over 60 mph yesterday my bike died right on the highway. I was in 4th and was holding it just below the powerband (about 7k rpm's). As I started to accelerate just slighty (bringing it to 7.5) it completely stopped pulling. Wtf? I mean I twisted the throttle and there was absolutely no response nothing. I wish I had listened to the bike a little more right off the bat but I thought I had a flat tire from the way the bike was wobbling so badly and losing speed. By the time I had gotten over into a turn lane the bike was just struggling and coughing before finally cutting itself off. I tried to start it back up (afraid I had blown the motor or something) and it just sounded horrible and wouldn't start. Eventually I managed to get it going by revving it really high while I kept pushing the starter button. I had plenty of fuel (which was 'on') and my oil level is fine and was changed not too long ago. I'm completely lost as to what happened and why it's now running just fine, like nothing's wrong.,I'm guess its a fuel problem, ignition problem ussually dont go away on their own, but tend to stay. Possible causes: 1. Got bad gas with tons of water in it. If thats the case, it shouldn't happen again. 2. Obstruction in the air flow. Check around the air filter to see if there is a bird or a squirell or something in there. It would have to be big. 3. Something blocking the vent lines on the tank. If it happens again, stop and open the gas tank lid. If the problem goes away, thats the problem. Look for kinked houses. 4. A piece of gunk in the carburator blocking the jets. This could have dissolved by now, or it could float away from the jet then come back later. You would have to take apart and clean the carbs. Also, drain the gas, and check the inside of the tank for rust, or other debrees.. 5. Maybe the choke was left on? Sounds extreme, but who knows...,,,

My yamaha R6-2008 is having a take off problem. please help?

Klacking noise? Any sort of mechanical metal to metal noise is no good. If the engine pulls fine once your in higher gears with no noise I would think that it is transmission/gear issues and not engine(piston/rod) issues. If the bike gets abused or stunted chances are the first couple of gears are bad.
