Question about 2001 Yamaha YZF-R6

1 Answer

My 2002 r6 will shut off while riding? please help.

I have a 2002 used r6, rode my r6 for 5 months with no problems and then all of a sudden it began to kill out on me while riding. one minute it is running great and the next thing you know the dash lights will flash and go out and the bike loses power, backfires badly, and stops. It will sometimes start up right away and run fine for about five to ten minutes and then it does it again. other times you can leave it sit for awhile and then start it and ride it with no problems even for a day but then the problem always comes back. ok i can honestly say this is my first bike and im a beginner rider and dont know absolutly anything about bikes yet. please help in details of what your think it is and where it is located please and thanks ..
p.s. jus a lil info... befor i dought the bike it was sitting for 6 months.and i havent took it in to any dealer to clean anything or check for anything.

Start by checking your right hand switch (kill switch) and make sure that it works ok.
Put it in "run" position,start the engine and try to move it sideways without pressing it to "off" position.If necessary remove it and check inside for rust or moisture signs.

Why does my 2009 Yamaha r6 sound like I'm running


Hi, Ruminants I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.
1. Bearings---SCREECH
2. Belts---HUM
3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ
4. Chains---RATTLE
5. Clutches---CHATTER
6. Shifting Trans---CLUNK
7. Front Forks---PLUNK
8. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK
9. Starters---CLICK
10. Solid Lifters---TICK
11. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP
12. Pistons---SLAP
13. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "*****"

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

2001 yamaha R6 will die out on me while riding


Hi there!

dont give up on it yet. the CDI costs much! This sounds like a wiring problem. I've had the same problem before but i checked and traced the wiring and found out that the positive lead wire is making contact with the chassis.. due to vibration and just, it must have eaten the insulator. Check on this part. Also, make sure that your carb jets and spark plugs are clean.

-hope this gives you an idea.
