Promblem..Bike dies

I got a 2003 r6. I went riding today and i started it and let it run for about 5 mins and it just died on me...I was giving it some gas and it held up. So i took off on it and came too a light and put it in neutral and died on me again...I kept riding for awhile and it didnt do it again and rode fine...ANY IDEAS?

Could it be low on oil or low batter or something?

thanks guys

Carb or fuel injected?

Is it killing immediately or does it idle down till it stops?

Is your idle adjusted properly?

Check for loose connections on your battery. Does it die when your off the gas?? and stays on when your holding the Revs higher??

If it was electrical it would cut off while riding too. I think is idle is just effected by the drop in temperature; meaning denser charge of air per volume and the bike isnt compensating for it.

I had a similar proble with another bike I had but it was Carbed. Ended up being a loose terminal

It could be a loose battery terminal, or it's idled too low.
What RPM is it idling at?

could be everything from bad gas, to loose terminals to, to spark plugs being way old, to a rat in your airbox (yes i have seen that) Your question is to general get more specific on what you did when the last time anything was done or everyone will be shooting in the dark

If your bike sits for long periods, a week or more at a time, I recommend keeping the tank full and adding 3 ozs. each of Stabil and Seafoam.

It will help prevent having fuel system issues.

Stabil for the win. If your going to be off shore alot and not riding alot make sure to keep your tank close to full or put some kind of rust preventative becasue that will really suck.
