check.

check your throttle, try and tighten the throttle cable, happened to my kawi zx10. It would just shut off with cruising ad when idleing. After i tightened it, it didnt happen anymore!

Set your idle at 1200-1500 rpm.
If you have an R6S it's easy enough, if you've got an R6, you need to bring it to a shop, thank Yamahas fly by wire system for that, no mechanical idle adjustment.

do you have a power comander? if so try unpluging it and see if it still does it, its rare for it to happen but it does happen, all u gotta do is call them up and tell them what's happening and they will get you a new one. happened to me.

my roommates bike used to doe the same thing, die after start up, die at lights, die when clutch was pulled i to coast (basicly low rpm to idle)...he took it to yamaha and after waiting a month for a yamaha rep from HQ or where ever to get there they determined it was the timing chain and tensioner. they replaced it for free (warranty) and its been fine since. so if nothing else works try that.

I had the exact same thing with my R6. I had to bring it to several shops, I had it fixed three times but it just kept turning off when I was driving or idleing. No one could definitivly tell me what was wrong

as far as if you were driving...according to other r6 forums...people said it was something with the ecu. but it hasn't happened to enough people, so yami has not made any recall for that. but if at a stand still (idle), it is usually the idling that needs to be adjusted.
