  1. ZX6r Sputtering and cutting out at idle

    The ZX6R
    Hi Peeps, Bike: 2002 ZX6r (2003 plate though) I had my bike serviced about 4 weeks ago from a recommended "good" private bike garage and ever since its idle has been off.. I've noticed it now cutting out when idling. Its almost as if its starving of fuel because its idle is sputtering at 500...
  2. Do i need a tune up??

    Mechanical and Technical
    Alright bike has 25,800 miles on it (yes I know a lot) I am not sure when the last tune up was done and I am doing all my maintenance myself here. First off is just the overall idling issue. Bike idles at 15-1700rpms but it is not consistent at all. More along the lines of continuous...

  4. 2006 ZX6r idles fine but runs rough?

    Mechanical and Technical
    So I bought a 2006 zx6r recently for a steal. Everything works fine on it except for when I put the bike in gear and start moving the engine sounds shaky. I got it straight piped and with no power commander or anything. I thought that might be the issues but it idles just fine and can be revved...

  6. 07 zx6r choppy idle

    The ZX6R
    So I would really appreciate if I could get some help on this issue. Just picked up my first bike about 2 months ago my 07 zx6r. Had 2900 miles on it and was bone stock. Ever since I had it sometimes at idle it would be choppy. It never stalled or shuts off and runs totally fine and pulls hard...
  7. J1 idle flooding?

    The ZX6R
    Hi all, I'm new to the forum, and love reading through all the topics. I could talk about bikes all day long :) I own a J1, and didn't like the low idle that it had (1k rpm). So I adjusted the idle adjuster on the left-hand side of the bike beside the coolant reservoir so that the bike now...
