An intermittent problem is likely not a hard part. I'd inspect the electrical as mentioned above. Its not a fuse etc; especially if there has been electrical work on the bike coming from the track.

As for gas, it could cause a stumble, lack of power or bucking. Make sure there isn't rust or water floating on the gas that is in there since you mentioned it was low. Poor gas choices will increase the amount of junk in the tank causing rust over time and also deposits that may cause problems in the future on low tanks of gas.

Try to reproduce the problem, w the bike warmed up in the same conditions. If it happens again the same way/fuel level etc then check out the gas system. otherwise you're chasing an electrical problem. Without the proper input from crank, throttle sensors and outputs to injector/knock/ignition they system will default to a safer mode to prevent damages.

Do you not have a radiator or possibly a live fire underneath the engine? I think 1700 degrees is a bit to hot.
chit, sry. i meant 176F degrees, not 1777 or so.

if that was at 1776 motor would be melting and i'd be on fire ! duh ! and thanks to the azzhl who said my bike

No problem. When you lose your hard-on for me and quit bumping my 1 1/2 year old posts I'll quit ****in' with ya, but until then you're fair game.


PS- Yes, it really is annoying to get 87596495 calls asking if you're ok from your highside last night.

I'd check www.r6-messagenet.com. There are some VERY knowledgable people over there and just about everything that can happen to these bikes has been covered.

There is a good chance that is Team Penetration's old race bike - which needless to say crashed many many times... I've had my first and only bad experience with GP Motoring too.

You shoulda bought my bike dude...lol

Yamaha's are not known to do any of that. The early 2003s did have some electrical issues, you sure its not a 2003 motor in there? If it does NOT happen again, call it bad gas. (You did mention the bike has been sitting quite awhile).

Use Chevron or Shell 93 for a couple weeks atleast...
