Yamaha YZF-R6 - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


It could actually be that the countershaft sprocket has stripped-out the splines that engage it to the countershaft. Take off the cover and have a look at the sprocket. Hopefully it is only the sprocket that is damaged and not the transmission shaft that it mounts to.
Another possibility is that the clutch cable has somehow gotten waaay out of adjustment. Just feel the clutch lever; you should have some free play at the lever. In other words, the first 1/4" or so of lever movement should do nothing except take up a small amount of slack in the cable.
Are you sure it is actually going into gear? Or have the splines on the shift shaft stripped-out? These are the things I would check first. If it isn't one of these, then I predict some major transmission work is in your future.

Hi, Ronald either the fuse is bad or the fuse holder is faulty, for this scenario you will need your service manual that has all fastener torque specs and a wiring diagram on the back pages, parts fiche, and owners manual if you can't find the best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.

2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.

Hi, Anonymous the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.
