Question about 2000 Yamaha YZF-R6
Hi guys, im finding it hard to get clarification about this, I bought an R6 6 months ago, was off the road a while before i had it. 2 main problems, oil level light always on even changed the sensor, still the same! Other problem is that it misses at low revs and if you are coming down the gears from speed it backfires, although it sounds good its not supposed to be doing it! Its completely standard. Am i right in thinking the carbs need balancing? Everything else with the bike is perfect no loss of power at all. Many thanks in advance Darryl
Hi, Darryl and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check 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.
3. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition and leaking check for spark leakage in the dark
5. Spark plug gap too close or too wide.
6. Faulty ignition coil, module, and or sensor.
7. Loose, dirty, or corroded ignition module connector at crankcase.
8. Faulty CKP or CMP, MAP, ETS, ATS, TPS, O2 sensor.
9. Intake air leak.
10. Water, dirt, or rust in the fuel system, carburetor and/or filter.
11. Old dead or bad fuel.
12. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
13. Vacuum line from intake manifold to fuel valve is broken, cracked, pinched, or missing.
14. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
15. Damaged carburetor.
16. Incorrect valve timing.
17. Weak or broken valve springs.
18. Damaged intake or exhaust valve.
19. Check for engine trouble codes

your best bet it to order back threw the dealer, but they should offer some kits for the bike threw after-market company's like partsunlimited, lp "lockhart Phillips", and maybe tucker rocky street, at a better price but you may have to buy some parts extra it may not come in a complete kit like the factory offers.

yes they should be the same and mount in the same way/ place. the mounting placement and area are the same and they fit interchangably

well unless you know how to its best to leave them be if you strip the carbs you will need a tool to set them back up again plus if you take out any jets or screws that adjust the fule mix you will never get it running right again without the right tools to set it back up and a jet can be wrecked by bad cleaning
its your bike? but if you have the cash drop it into a shop for a good tune up
