My 2008 Yamaha fz6 has a rough idle and it sputters until about 4000 rpm then it runs like a dream only have problems with low rpm and only when at operating temp?
Try the basics first. When was it given a Full service? (Spark plugs, air/oil/fuel filters and oil change. Have you got any warning lights on the dash? Has it been standing unused for a long time as sometimes a bad batch of fuel or old fuel can cause problems. Old fuel can go "Off" and leave a sticky varnish like coating clogging injectors and sticking valves.
Try this. When your fuel tank is down to about quarter full and the engine is cold add a bottle of injector cleaner to the tank. Start the bike and let it idle until it is up to working temperature. Don't 'rev it up' because at idle your getting a stronger mix of cleaner going through the injectors. Once she's warmed up take her out for a good long steady ride then fuel up on the way BACK home.
If this doesn't help you'll need to get a Good bike mechanic to look at it as it could be a worn engine part or an electronics issue.
