Yamaha YZF R6 2002

Hi PLACE and welcome to the site:smile

If your running from London to Derby on a total loss system your just askin for trouble?.You state -( I GOT A BAD GENARATOR THE BIKE USED TO RUN ON A FULL CHARGED BATTERY) well there is the problem,if the battery now isn't 100% then when you use the starter there is too much drain on the battery to live up the ECU.This will be the problem(and diagnosis with info given) unless you have some other information you have forgotten to mention.Good Luck

KCMC:tongue:

sounds like the cdi

pick up which is in the genny cover ain't working either a loose pick up bad connector or bad wiring which normally runs in the same part of the harness as the generator wiring .... are you just charging the battery up cause the genny is knackered ?????

also make sure the

Casing it is mounted on is tight and free of damage and also that the pick up is tight as the gap it operates on needs to be correct then if that fails you need to start checking how far the power is reaching through the ignition circuit ....there should be a failsafe diagram either in your manual or handbook mate
