Question about 2006 Yamaha YZF-R6
Idles but wont rev up
Posted by Anonymous on
The R6 utilizes a dual throttle cable system. This ensures that the throttle actuator rod not only opens the carb, but closes it as well. The routing of these cables has caused problems in the past with kinking that leads to failure of the cable. It is a bit of a chore, but remove the tank and verify that when rotating the throttle, that it is actually moving the actuator.

SOURCE: Yamaha TTR 250, Idling Problem
check the inlet manifold rubber has not seperated from the aluminium part of the manifold ,this is very common on the ttr 250 and will cause the exact problem you have,if it is seperated either replace it or repair it with some good quality rtv sealant avoid sillicone sealant as it is not petrol resistant and will turn to jelly.adam

ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher on hand when working on carburetors.
Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Drain a cup of gas from the tank. Is there any water or trash in the cup? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).
Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. Install a new stock NGK spark plug and try to start the engine. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.
Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Before putting the slide back in the throat of the carb, move the clip on the jet needle one notch lower. Put the rest of the carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. This process should get you back on the road.
Please rate this solution. Thanks!

There have an air leak between the carb and the cylinder and/or the head and cylinder. Old hard / cracked rubber fittings and O rings are usually the problem. When extra air gets into the system it leans the fuel mix and the high idle is the result. It also means the engine runs hotter. Also, cracked or broken reeds can be a source.
