Question about 2002 Yamaha YZF-R6

1 Answer

My 02 R6 has been sitting for the past year. I put new gas in the tank and have a new battery. It will start but when I twist the trottle it shuts down (if as it's flooded). Any ideas on what the problem(s) could be?

I've just bought a 2002 r6 it's not been used for about a year owner told me to get it serviced it revs up great but when driving has no power over 4000 rpm


Hi, Stephen if your bike has been sitting idle for months or years and you did not do any pre-storage maintenance I feel your pain it will probably have a dead battery and not want to start or if it starts it will idle and run poorly, here are the following steps necessary to complete in order to get your bike back to an acceptable running condition.
1. If your battery was 2-3 years old when you last had the bike running you should replace it.
2. If you believe your battery might still be serviceable remove it from the bike and put it on a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger for 24 hours. If it is the old lead acid type with visible cells and acid levels fill each cell to the top line with distilled water and replace the caps, run the vent tube into a plastic or styrofoam cup, any cells that are cloudy/milky replace the battery.
3. After charging remove the leads and let the battery sit for a couple of hours then check the battery voltage with a volt meter, you should have 12.5 volts or better, any readings in the 11 volt range you need to do a proper load test on the battery and replace as necessary, any readings in the 10 volt range you have a dead cell and replace the battery.
4. Drain and flush fuel tank, google " how to clean a motorcycle gas tank" find a couple forums to view the different options available.
5. Remove your air cleaner and clean and re-oil per Mfg. specifications.
6. Remove the carburetor, disassemble and decontaminate with a carb dip or if you have EFI remove injectors and clean with carb spray and compressed air
7. Remove fuel valve and filter disassemble and clean as necessary, remove fuel lines and replace with new ones.
8. Replace spark plug with a new one and check for spark.

My 89 ranger has been sitting for 7 years. i got a new battery for it and it will crank but will not start. i am not sure where to start looking to fix the problem. before it sat it ran like a champ.


Hi,
Is it getting gas and fire?
If so and you don't have fresh gas in the tank, I would suspect some bad gas after sitting for 7 years.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Starts and runs with choke on for about 1minute or so then starts to cut out and backfire out exhaust, then won't start again . i cleaned tank , fuel getting to carbs , new plugs, thinking coils bad? I did...


Sea foam isn't always the answer there is far better things to use, berryman B12 chemtool is the best i have found for thing that haven't been sitting for a awhile but just need a good clean or water problems.
On to the problem at hand, has your bike sat for any amount of time? if so you need to clean your carbs. the gas will varnish and block the jet. will the bike run without the choke? Check your coilby seeing if you have spark test each hole if you have good spark them you know that coils and pickup are working.
Let me know what you find, Good luck

Car wont start it sounds out of gas but its not


Try changing your fuel filter. After setting for over a year your filter may of have picked up some trash that settled in your tank. Also check your fuses you may of have blown your fuel pump fuse. Also you may try putting some new fuel.

89 Ford F150 shuts off when put in gear.


After sitting 2 years, there must have been some fuel in tank that has probably gone real bad (like shellac) and contaminated the fuel system, plugged up filter etc. Usually rust will form in tank, mixed with stale fuel, it will turn just like mud.
