    r6 stalls on idle

    ok so i was warming up the bike today and took it for a quick stroll around the block. i came to a stop to adjust my boots when suddenly i heard my idle weakening and after a few seconds the bike just dies. This happened to me before as well when i was waiting for the stoplight. I checked the battery and its fine and fully charged. I do hear a fast ticking noise on my engine meaning i might need to get my valves adjusted and maybe a carb clean-up. Could this be the cause of my bike stall?

    check your vacuum lines. a vacuum leak would cause an idle drop such as you say.
    Some people are like Slinkies ...
    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    how much gas have you got?
    I ride purely, and only, because it is fun.

    I ride because I love freedom, independence, and the movement of the ground beneath me.

    have your TPS checked out. I just had mine replaced. 04 FZ6 had a recall on the parts as well as other Yamaha bikes. best thing is you bring it down to Yamaha and its FREE
