I own a 1999 R1. I don't ride alot, but take very good care of the bike. I went to ride recently and it would not stay running when the choke is off. I know it is probably a problem with my carbs. Is there anything I can try before going to a complete rebuild of the carb?

My 1999 r1 revs flick upto 7000 and back down to 1000 then to 0


Bad voltage regulator. Mine went bad then started to 'over charge' the battery. I put a voltage meter on it while the bike was at idle. It read as high as 16.1v. After I changed the voltage regulator it idles at 14.1v.

I replaced the battery due to it not being able to hold a charge. After I put in the new battery the tach shot up to 7k (while riding) then down to zero. As soon as I got home I put the volt meter on the battery and found out that the battery was being over charged. The voltage regulator took care of the issue. I hope this helps.

1999 yamaha yzf r1 runs hot even when the fan turns on. Temperatures reaches in the 250 and have gone to 273.


Hi, Tom 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.

Hi, Tom and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

If you want your starter bike to be your ender bike then yes it is a great first bike. Honestly it's kinda like suicide. And you want to jump onto one of the strongest and fastest bikes out there? Do a little more research before choosing because it could literally be life or death depending on your choice. The R1 is a HORRIBLE first bike choice. I suggest you start with a Ninja 250r or something similar. If you don't want to sell and buy another one you might be able to start on a Ninja 500. You do realize that the "1" in R1 stands for 1000cc bike. Be careful out there. John
