2002 r6: Minor problems i'm having.

I've had my bike for about 3mos. now and i've came across some things I didn't notice before. Hopefully they are easy/cheap fixes...

1. Can't get the rear seat off. I can hear the lock disengage but it acts like it's catching on something. I've pulled/pushed/lifted in every way possible. No luck.

2. If they bike is cold, it takes me feathering the throttle to keep it idling until it warms up. Not sure if this is common with a carb'd bike since it's my first one.

3. Play off of #2, I think my choke is busted. While i'm feathering the throttle to keep it idling and try to choke it, it just dies on me.

I plan on replacing the battery, oil/filter change, carbs cleaned/sync'd in the next week or so.

i know #2 is a problem with carbed bikes, both of mine do that...just run the choke for a few, but then that leads to #3 which im not sure of

not sure about the other 2

for the seat. if it is full in there or something is pushing up on the seat, sometimes you really need to push down on that seat while turning the to help the lock/bar turn.

the other ones....get a FI bike

I had a 2002 R6 here is some insight.


#1 is the rear seat latch cable. If you take out the pop rivets from the undertail and reach your fingers through there is a cable that pulls the latch from the seat. That cable looses slack over time and needs to either adjusted or replaced.

#2 Common. My R6 did the same thing. Just give it time hit triple digit temps.


#3 Don't even mess with the throttle at cold start just choke it start it and let it warm up. If you blip the throttle it'll just gurgle and choke. Also might want to get the the carbs sync'd. I had mine sputter and die randomly on the highway after 6,000 miles and had to sync the carbs two of the injectors were clogged as well.

Is the bike all stock?
How many miles are on it?
Has it ever sat up for a period of time?

The R6 stock is a bit cold natured and will run better once it's warmed up.

Your cable may be strected on the seat lock and isn't releasing it all of the way.
Bring it by and I'll look at it, no charge.

I have a 02 R6 and there right it sounds like the cable is caught or its full under there....

As for my r6 I have never had trouble getting my running when its cold. unlkike most carb engines mine starts right up first try and is ready to ride. of course i always let it get at least to 102 temp. But most carb bikes take time to warm up

What color is it?
