you can get an automotive grade fluke ocilliscope for around 400-500. they're really nice, and outline all the basic test procedures for most 5v sensors. very nice for checking for deadspots on rheostats and pots, a life saver for any electrical diagnostics.

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
You could try using the bikes built-in diagnostic tool to help you.
It's been a while since I did one but from memory it goes like this:
with the ignition off hold down the two dash buttons,
turn ignition on while holding buttons down for approx 5 seconds,
You get an options menu, using one of the buttons you select the "diagnostic" mode.
Follow prompts.

You may get a fault code come up,
I'm sure a bit of googling will help you identify what the code means but if not PM me and I'll get it for you.

There is a way to clear all codes but I can't remember it off the top of my head.

Like I say, it's been a while so I'm struggling to remember clearly.

Hope this helps you.

The '03 - '05 R6's have a problem with the coil pack insulator being faulty and letting current leak to ground.
Pull your coil packs and see if any of them have a burnt look to them, particularly around the base.
If so, that's your problem.

If you're unsure what to look for, bring the coil packs out of the bike up to the shop and I'll look at them for you, no charge.

2800 for the masterkit w all the leads from Solaris. It reads faster then the BMW factory equipment and the colors really help when your mapping multiple signals. The kit is top notch; I really like it but the battery died too quickly so I run an extension cord out of my box... I'd brag more and post up the box but I don't wanna mess w the thread.

Sounds like great info to me and that is definitely a badass offer from Patrick. Take him up on it!
