Bad gas/clogged injectors?
Over the winter, I forgot to add fuel stab. into my tank and only had about 1/2 tank full.
I took the bike out for the first time Tuesday night (rode 10 miles) and bike was fine.
I took the bike out yesterday (wednesday) rode 30 miles, filled up to full, rode another 30 miles so 70 miles into the year, were getting off the highway and im co-sting(sp) to a stop in N at about 50 and it stalls. I start it a few times, stalls without rev. I put it in first at the stop, stalls (it wont idle).
I ride the next 5 miles home and get stuck at about 7 lights and it stals at 4 during idle. (it went for about 2 mile with no prob)
I let the bike sit for about 25 min at home and ride to pick up some TEKRON w/ no problem (idle was fine). I fueled up again and put slightly more TEKRON in then needed (fuel/injector etc.. cleaner) and the bike ran fine for another 35 miles except stalling when co-sting into friends drive way about 10 minutes earlier. (so one stall after Tekron added)
*Im thinking over winter, the fuel formed a "gel" and clogged some shit....
*I havent checked plugs
Anyone? Im thinking after this tank I should be fine. Its a 2004 R6 with 6500 mi.
Thanks alot, Trevor
