New to the Forum---I Got Bike Problems

Hello All,

I just bought a 06 R6. My bike stalls on me at stop lights when I am in neutral or in first gear. I have no idea where to start looking for the problem. This is my first bike. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Appreciate it.

Won't say anything about your choice of a first bike but check your idle. It sh
sounds like it may be low allowing your bike to stall out. Should be 1200-1300rpms any one correct these values but it's close
