Question about 2005 Yamaha YZF-R6

1 Answer

My bike shuts down when i stop, rpm's fall to zero and it dies

The bike runs great but when I come to a stop when i pull the clutch in, it dies. I tried going to neutral, but the same thing happens. I have tried looking for the idle speed knob, but havent found it, not sure if thats even the problem. Some have suggested it is the throttle position sensor. Looking to see if anybody has had the same problems and a possible solution.

So the bike is Fuel Injected?

That could very well be the case if it is.

Starts in neutral w/ kickstand up, dies when put in gear. NOT Kickstand Switch

it sounds like the clutch is dragging,either it is not adjusted properly or the clutch friction or metal plates are warped and acting like wave should have about 2mm of free play at the end of the clutch lever when its not being pulled in.also too thick an oil in the engine in it like 20/50 it should be using 10w 40 semi synthetic oil.does it try to pull forwards with the clutch in slightly when you put it in gear ?

My 1996 Suzuki intruder vs800 die when I try to put it in gear is it my clutch where is the cable located and how do I tighten it up

Hi James the clutch is stuck. The best way to free it is to raise the back wheel and start the bike in gear. Then with the clutch pulled in and the rpm high keep hitting the back brake until it frees. If it doesn't free you will have to remove the clutch and clean it up. Get some help when your doing this in case the bike falls over. Regards Jim...

Did you leave your motorcycle in gear when you turned it off? It sounds like the side stand safety switch is keeping the bike turned off. If my Suzuki is running and I pull in the clutch, with out raising the side stand, and I place the bike in gear with the side stand down, it will immediately shut off. The cycle is set up that way so you will not drive with your stand down and go out of control when you take your first left turn. If your cycle is not in neutral and your side stand is down, that would cause the condition you describe. If that is not the case start by inspecting the side stand safety switch and the clutch safety switch for proper operation.

Engine cuts out with clutch engaged.

idle adjust?
there SHOULD be an adjuster under the seat or gastank within easy reach. Clockwise to increase rpm, ccl to decrease rpm. idle around 1400rpm when engine is at normal operating temp. Good luck!
