new member please help 2002 r6 wont start
I bought a 2002 r6 at the beginning of the season and it ran great. it started making a chattering noise a little later so I gave it to a mechanic for a valve adjustment, he tells me the noise is actually the timing chain and it needs replaced so I let him do it. after I got it back it ran terrible. the rpms wouldn't go over 2 and the bike wouldn't stay running unless the throttle was twisted. after a while of holding the throttle it would run but it would die over and over. so I took it to another mechanic who said he couldn't figure out the problem and gave it back. the battery was completely fried at this point so I tried to jump it and it made a grinding noise and the engine locked so I removed the started and turned the gears backward and freed the engine up. I replaced the battery and now it turns over fine but wont start. I am getting spark and fuel. I'm at a loss as to what to do next. what would keep it from starting at this point? could I have fried something? maybe this guy just hooked stuff up wrong or whatever but I cant find the issue. anything helps I'm savvy with cars but bikes are new to me and I cant take it to Yamaha at the moment because I don't have the funds lol. also on a side note I cannot get diagnostics mode to come up at all I don't know if that's a sign of another problem, I cant find anything on that.
