2005 R6









Ive got a problem... please help!!!

I just bought my 2005 R6 a couple weeks ago, and last week it started running really bad. It lost all power on my way to work one morning, so I bought all new spark plugs thinking that was the problem. When I pulled off the last ignition coil, it was torn at the connection to the plug. I bought a new one, and when I put it on its still running terrible. The guy I bought it from told me the stater was bad, so Ive been charging it every night. Is that my problem?? Can a bad stater make my bike run this bad?? I dont know what else to do, this is my first bike and I dont really want to put it in the shop, I want to fix it myself... Someone please give me some advice on what to do... please its driving me crazy... Thanx

a bad stator is like a bad alternator...it will make it not run at all..do you have a volt meter to test the stator?

If it is a bad stator it will run til the battery is dead and then not run at all. If that is a case I have a stator for sale. But it doesn't sound like your issue.

Eith a stator it is just like the alternator going out in your car...after it dies your bike is only running on what the battery has and then will eventually kill out completely and likely not start again. Are you getting any error codes on the screen?

Sounds like you need to buy a Honda, that should fix the problem.

Hmm. Honestly not sure what to tell you man....I can fix what the service manual tell me how. May be better off waiting til in the morning when alot more people are on and some real technical and knowledgeable guys get on. If you want I can send you a service manual for you to look at in the mean time and you can look in there for your problem see if it helps.

ok... it dies when you shift down?....


Is the idle set correctly, to start with?(is the idle dropping when you pull in the clutch)

Is the clutch cable adjusted correctly?

If the stator was bad, as mentioned above, the bike will idle/run till it dies when the battery's surface charge is depleeted. If it continues to run and not dying, then the stator is fine. Low voltage does create havoc for a FI system BTW because signal return is not as strong if the supply voltage for the sensor is not where it needs to be.

If you read throught he owner's manual you will find general adjustments as mentioned above to help the bike idle and run properly... Sounds like it needs a little TLC. When all others are corrected then consider bad gas(how long has it sat w set 'bad stator' by seller.) Or there may be a sensor issue and you may need to pull codes if its new enough; sorry didn't read what type of bike it is.

Or see/talk w Patrick... He's the MH Guru....

Could do a quick stator test by starting the bike and pulling the battery off. If it dies than stator or rectifier could be bad, if it runs then your charging systems runs fine. When we had stator issues it would throw Code 46 (i believe thats the number) which was an error for the FI system not getting the right voltage.

Even a cheap multimeter for checking voltages is something highly recommended for any motorists... btw...

as i have found with my v-max, u have a fuel pump and when the battery gets too low to run the pump then it will die. Maybe unplug your headlight fuse and then run the bike, Headlights use a crapload of juice. easy way to check.

I like my 4k four channel oscilliscope; but that's overkill for most applications; but it is nice to see a signal wave when doing sensor sweeps
