did you replace it with a oem switch?There is on some bikes a anti theft device built into the key switch.If you replaced it with a after market switch thats your problem.There is a resister built in the oem switch .You would need to soldier in a 100 ohm resister to make the aftermarket switch work.My advice is to put in the oem key switch

Check the battery.Is it charged?Also does the neutral light go on?
If not check the neutral switch.
The neutral switch is behind the engine case near the rear shock and has one wire. Make sure the bike is in neutral or on stands. Remove the one wire and put it to earth/chassis/ground (somewhere metal on the bike). The neutral light should come on and you should be able to start the bike if that was the problem.

Check the fuses

It sounds like a sensor not working good and did you check all the connectors from the front to the back of the bike to make sure that is no debris in there plus get an ohm tester and test all you wiring if possible including coils sensor switch etc.

broken cable if your style bike has that style system, the cable that attaches to the axle shired off, i"ve had that stripped out also before and had to replace it.

Most likely a blown head gasket. Exhaust gas is blowing past the gasket and into the cooling system. It will pressurise the cooling system and push the coolant into overflow bottle. You might notice that after riding the bike for a while and then leaving it to stand for a few minutes, it will push coolant back into the cylinder and you will get a big puff of steam out exhaust when you start it.
Best way to check is to do a compression test. Need to remove spark plugs and and screw a compression tester into the hole. Crank the starter and you will see the gauge go up in 3 or 4 strokes. Should be about 224 psi for a new stock motor. Repeat test for remaining 3 cylinders. Pressure should be 90% of that figure (201) and should not be more than 10% different from highest to lowest. Probably find one cylinder is really low.

Yes it might have shorts inside the coil.

Disconnect the wire connections and OHM them out to ground. If you have a short to ground the wires will melt.

Not sure what your talking about - 2000 R6's had carb's. The first year for a fuel injected R6 was 2003.

2000 Yamaha... | Answered on Oct 21, 2013 | 254 views

It needs the carbs cleaned and sync'd. don't risk blowing it up.

Ok, consider it kind of like a warning system. You have some blown bulbs and the way it tells you this, it stays solid. The opposite stays off. If it is the back that stays on, then the front bulb is blown and needs to be replaced. Same on all vehicles that use the flasher system.

Not quite sure about your light problem, but sound like you might have something mis-wired from the ignition switch check the cannon plug for any bent or shorted pins, as far as the hesitation since the bike hasnt been used in awhile im sure the carbs/fuel injectors are all varnished up, you need to purchase some Sea Foam @ Autozone $10 pour in 1/3 can to 2 gallons fuel and replace or clean out your fuel filter if that hasnt been done, now ride it on an open highway for about 10 to15 miles and that stuff should clean it up and even return any lost hp.
