shift timing indicator light

2051 Views 24 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  DLIT
Hey Guys,

I'm trying to set my shift timing indicator light on my R6. I'm following my owner's manual, and I can't even get started. The manual says to push the RESET button to select one of the indicator light acitivity settings, but it doesn't mention whether the key should be in the "ON" or "OFF" position. I've tried both anyway and when I push the RESET button, nothing happens. What am I doing wrong? Anyone who has a R6 or is familiar with R6 settings, please help. Thanks.

You need to push the reset button in while the key is off and then turn the key on while holding the reset button still. You will need to cycle through the backround light, then the shift indicator light before you can adjust which RPM's the indicator will go on/off. I believe that's how I did it on my '04. If that doesn't work, let me know and I will look at my manual.

You could always test your own theory.
Bike is in the shop still.

Why is your bike still in the shop???
It started to run like crap. Real shaky at idle. i took it to the shop and they were thinkin the throttle bodies weren't synced anymore (15K miles). They said they were still going to do more diagnostics. Well, it's been in the shop for over a week now and the lastes word is that they don't know what's wrong and they have to call Yamaha on Tuesday. Hopefully it's serious and I'll need a new motor or something. Everything is covered under waranty still. I'm pissed though cuz I'm driving to Texas this weekend and wish I could take it w/ me but I don't think it'll be fixed. i myself am leaning towards bad gass but what do i know?
