    cycles have a batt coil ignition-that means the spark goes thru battery-and if not at 12.6volts then bike runs poor--do the required test I said-buy a clymer or haynes manual for troublshoot procedure

My r6 running too fast when started

On cold days, the yamaha fuel injected bikes rev higher to warm up the engine quickly. It is still ok to ride the bike on a cold engine, but it will perform much better when the engine is warmed up.

could be a few things going on . have you checked the vacuum lines? could have one plugged or collapsed? Could be a carb problem? have you installed a carb kit yet ? or you could try a hotter spark plug.

Won't idle down after it warms up

after the bike has warmed up, then reset the idle to approx 1000rpm. then see what happens when its cold. some bikes are cold blooded and the use of choke is necessary for a bit, at least until it warms up...

Trouble starting on warm starts sometimes.

This really sounds like a need to replace the intake gaskets. When the bike warms up the gaskets loose their seal leading to a lean condition that makes it almost impossible to start, until bike cools down. Gaskets are cheap, this would be my first place to begin. Hope this helps.

Clutch issue yamaha

That's just clutch drag. The parts turning in cold oil will spin the rest of the clutch if there is no force stopping them, like having the wheel off the ground. It is much less pronounced with warm oil, but it is always there in a wet clutch system. Nothing to worry about.
