R6 starting problem

Alright here it is, I need help finding out a problem of why my bike wont start. I just had the engine re-built & dropped in the bike. Brand new battery & spark plugs so we go to turn it over & it starts but then quickly just dies out. Its like you have to wait on when it wants to just keep a set idle for it to run. Took it out for a test ride just shifting through the gears & when u down shift to first it dies on me. The stator is good, tps is good, wiring relays are good, everything is connected! So if anybody has any ideas on what this problem can be please let me kno so i can get back on the road ASAP!!!!!!

Idled too low/synch is out/vacuum leak.
If you've synched it and ruled out any vacuum leaks than it's an idle issue..
Unfortunately with the b/s Yamaha fly by wire system there's no easy way to adjust the idle.
In the center of the throttle bodies is a very small allen set screw and jam nut.
You can use that to set the idle with. Back off the jam nut and turn the screw in to idpe about 1300-1500 rpm hot. Tighten the jam nut
It's a pain, but it can be done.
