bike stalling out

This happens every now and again.. seemed to happen alot more before i drove it around quite a bit.

every now and again if i just give the bike a little bit of throttle while in neutral and let off the throttle the bike will just stall out... it will also do it sometimes if im gearing down for a stop and pull the clutch in it the engine will rev down like normal but instead of holding at idle it will just stall out..


its not a super huge problem but is something im curious about. does not happen too often but often enough to be an annoyance


tired searching found no results.

its a 2009 zx6r.. it was properly broken in and has right at 1700 miles on it now.

What is your idle set to ? If its to low this could be the issue. I keep mine about 1400 - 1500 rpm on idle.

Current upgrades: Akrapovic Evo Slip-On + Link Pipe, Shogun Sliders , DDM 35w 6k HIDs , CustomLED Intergrated Taillight, LP Fender Eliminator.

well dont i feel dumb.. i just came off a carbed bike and did not realize i could so easily adjust the idle speed on a fuel injected bike.

thats the quickest and easiest fix ive come across.

thanks again. =]

There's a knob attached to one of the coolant hoses on the left (clutch) side of the bike

twists, no, partial turns yes.

just run the bike til it warms up and adjust it a little at a time. Should be right to raise the idle, left to lower IIRC

I'm having the same issue on brand new stock 2018 zx6r. It doesn't matter gear and adjusting idol speed only seems to delay the issue for a little before it comes back. Dealerships and shops say they can't recreate or find a problem
