Is your throttle coming back down or is it sticking and you have to twist it back yourself? If it sticks check your cables if it doesn't you have other issues like a vacuum leak.

Hi There,
Got this from my copy of the Yamaha workshop manual for this model

The YZF-R1 features a self-diagnosing system for the following circuits:
1. throttle position sensor
3. fuel level indicator light
if any of these circuits are defective their respective condition codes will be displayed on the tachometer when the main switch is set to "ON" (irrespective of whether the engine is running or not)

1. throttle position sensor a) Disconnected b) Short-circuit c) Locked 0 - 3,000rpm
2. EXUP a) Improper connection b) Short-circuit c) Servomotor is locked 0 - 7,000rpm
3. Fuel level indicator light a) Improper connection 0 - 8,000rpm

It looks like you have a problem with the EXUP Valve on yours, probably seized or maybe cables not moving freely
Hope this Helps

SOURCE: its starts and runs good, but it is not able to

Assuming you haven't done anything to the carb or cable, the revving up would indicate an air leak somewhere around the carb manifold, either at the head or at the carb/manifold couple.
300rpm is very low for a single to idle at, it should be around 600rpm for reliable idling.
To check for air leaks, spray CRC or WD-40 around the manifold while the bike is idling - you will hear a change in speed.

I've just bought a 2002 r6 it's not been used for about a year owner told me to get it serviced it revs up great but when driving has no power over 4000 rpm

Hi, Stephen if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

The tachometer on my tiger stays on 4000 rpm when switching it off, when it is idling it shows 5200 rpm with engine speed at normal. How do I reset or get the needle back at 0 rpm when the motor is...

After turning Motor off, turn key to on again. DON'T start bike and turn off this should fix. If not the needle may be sticking and may need pulling apart to stop sticking. I believe the first Solution will Fix. Regards Billy

When i take off from a stop light my bike spits and sputter from 1000 rpm to 3500rpm when it reaches 4000 rpm it starts to clear up.

Hi, Rumblinstump and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Intake system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Pinholes or torn diaphragm.
6. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
7. Plugged bowl vent or overflow.
8. Fuel level in bowl too low.
9. Restricted fuel supply passages.
10. Plugged jets or passages.
11. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
12. The enrichner valve not seated or leaking.

While riding my R6 last night the dash lights turned off and the RPM's dropped to zero and back up with the red line light flashing as if I had shut off the bike and turned it back on. This happened...

Sounds like a bad connection somewhere in the power to the dash. Check for corroded/dirty/loose wires & connections from the dash back to the fue for it
It could even be a dodgy fuse or holder

Hope this helps
