Hi, Roslyn_carri and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant and needs bleeding.
7. Engine idling too long or bike moving too slow.
8. Coolant too old needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: i have 2005 yamaha r6 overheating

Check your collant level and if it is full run the bike for 10-15 minutes at idle and see if the fan turnes on. If it does not then either your fan is burned out or you need a temp. control sensor for your fan. To test the fan connect 12 volts DC the the fan plug (check polarity) and it should run and if it does then you need a fan control sensor. If the fan runs as it should, start the process over but with the filler cap off the coolant resivoir. Run the bike again but take a temp reading from the coolant. If it is within manufactures specs, then the thermostat is working. If is is too hot, replace the t-stat.

The dealer or an automotive paint/autobody shop can tell you where the vehicle ID plate. This is different from the VIN plate. Locations differ by make and year. Fastened to a frame member usually.

What's wrong with my 2012 yamaha R6 & how much is it going to co$t


sounds like the head gasket to me
problem with all the r range of yamaha
you have to drop the engine out to do anything really

but before you do that run a compression check on all 4 cylinders
if the compression is low on 1 or more cylinders
it could be either your head warped (not so bad)
or worst case a cracked liner (barrel)

you can get the head gasket on ebay for around $40

but the main cost can depends
on whether you have overheated the engine or not
if it has overheated it can warp your head
then the head has to be run to an engineering shop
and have it skimmed

if it is a cracked liner get a second hand engine

but if you have not overheated the engine
just replace the head gasket
but personally i would still have the head checked out for cracks
