Question about 2000 Yamaha YZF-R6
Hi, Irmantass666 try cleaning your air filter 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 then stall, 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 the battery needs to be replaced.
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 and inspect your air cleaner paper elements that are not oil soaked can be cleaned with a soft brush and low pressure compressed air, oil soaked elements must be replaced. Gause mesh and foam elements can be cleaned by soaking them in a container big enough to completely cover them with a solution of 1 gallon of water and 1 oz. of Dawn dishwashing liquid for small and medium size elements, for monster size double the formula and let soak for at least one hour then rinse with warm water shake off excess and let air dry, "WARNING" do not use compressed air as this will embed micro-sized dirt and road grime and destroy the mesh pattern and stretch foam elements out of shape just squeeze it like a sponge and let air dry, use a fan if you're in a hurry. When completely dry spray a very fine mist of air filter oil evenly around the whole element.
6. Remove the carburetors, 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, clean, and inspect fuel and vacuum lines and replace as necessary.
8. Replace spark plugs with new ones and check for spark.

SOURCE: oil shooting in to the air box
From your brief description I'm guessing a high mileage machine? or Previous owners have revved too much from cold?
It sounds like the engine is possibly breathing? the pistons and compression rings are worn so exhaust gasses and compression leaks past them and pressurizes the crank case sending oil out the breather, so the air filter draws it in.
If the bike is performing o.k. and you can live with it try a dribble/breather can? pop the vent pipe into a seperate container to catch it. Make sure you seal the hole in the air filter so contaminents can't get in. also the new breather needs air circulation so trial and error on a recepticle.

You bike is running rich on the main jet. Go down on the main jet size. Alternate to that, move the jet needle clip up one notch.
Go to the site below and you can download a free PDF service manual and parts manual for your bike. The service manual is 45th from the bottom of the Yamaha listings and the parts manual is 19th from the top. Now you can tune the carb and adjust the timing chain slack and a whole lot more. It saves my keystroke finger a lot of work also.
Please rate this solution. Thanks glouellette!

This sounds like it could be any of 3 things. Ignition system, Air system & fuel system. Most commonly you'll find that the carburettors just need to be cleaned as this problem sounds related.
I would suggest thoroughly cleaning the carburettors as a good starting point. Along the way though I would also check the battery, the fuel tap and filter, the air filter and air ducts. As any of these components are blocked, will cause a similiar symptom. You should find it run better afterwards, if not I can help moving on to check the next possible cause. If you need help of how to get to the carbs and how to clean them, let me know.
