Cool 2002 R6 No Start - February 17, 2012, 09:00 AM

So im helping a buddy get his R6 back on the road. He had someone else initially working on it and decided a stumble issued required head removal. The stumble issue was mostly likely carb related from the description he had given me but again this was prior to me working on. Once i received the bike the "fun" began.

Previous mechanic had lost buckets and shims (5 total) so getting the valve clearances set was a fun chore especially since i had not real starting point for any of them. I can do this process now with my eyes closed!

Anyways got everything back together and went to fire it up. Its got spark and compression and I can tell its getting fuel but not confident the carbs are working properly. I get some pops and bangs while spinning it over and every now and then it acts like its gonna catch but nothing.

The other issue which may or may not be related is the gauge cluster is not working. I have no digital displays. I do have idiot lights. Dont think the two are related but its possible i guess. The bike did sit outside for sometime. All fuses check out good. Fuel pump is working.

Im out in the Winchester,Va area. If someone would like to come by and take a look you are more than welcome. Or if theres anyone in the area someone could reccommend to handle going through the carbs that would be great as well. Im 80% sure its carb related.

Well the lack of digital display says you have some electrical issue that might also be related to the bike not starting: the spark might be coming in at the wrong time. It's really hard to tell what the problem could be from your description: how long has the bike been sitting, was it involved in a crash? Give some more info and you will get more help.

As for cleaning the carbs it's really pretty easy, and if the bike has been sitting for months with shitty US gas in it, it's likely that they are gummed up.

Get some carb rebuild kits, they where around $26 each for my fzr, and then disassemble drop them in pine-sol for a good 24h then clean them with air and water. Then put them back together and see what you get. I would say your gauge issue is unrelated but I don't know nothin....
