Went out to hop on my bike saturday morning, fired it up, then after about one minute of idling it died. I fired it up again and it died right away. Tried again and had to hold the throttle open about half way and the bike barely stayed alive. It was idling very rough and sounded like it was only running on 2 cylinders. As soon as I let go of the throttle it died and wouldnt fire up anymore.

The fuel pump sounded like it was priming just fine, there were no FI codes flashing, and the fuses were all in tact.

I took it in and dropped it off at the dealership- havent heard back from them yet. They told me it is most likely the fuel regulator. Dude said he has seen this problem before on 2006 600RRs. Anyone else run into this problem?

This wasnt the first time the bike did the wierd idle thing where I had to hold the throttle in but before it would end up running just fine.

I have a jardine slip on and a K&N air filter.....no PCIII though. Could that have something to do with it?

Thanks for the input, gents. Didnt see a reason to pull any plugs because they are only 2500 miles old. Its under full warranty and I dont have all the needed tools/stands to be yanking everything apart so I figured id let them handle it. Only thing now is their customer service sucks @$$.

If it wouldn't start, pulling the plugs would have let you determine if there was spark or not, and if the plugs are fouled. Could have saved you some time with taking it to a dealer or not.

Well the dealership called me tonight and told me my warranty is not going to cover the cost of labor and parts because there was water in the gasoline. So im gonna have to pay up front for everything which really sucks.

I already called Shell and started a claim with them to try and get them to pay for some or all of my repair costs.

The mech told me that it will be around $300 for labor then the cost of parts....

anyone know what parts will have to be replaced? Plugs, injectors, etc?

Just trying to figure out how many hundreds of dollars im gonna have to drop this week.

Nothing should have to be replaced, unless they're going to **** you around and claim you need a new fuel pump, injectors, and so on.

god damn right, nothing needs replacement, tell them you want a bottle of HEET and bring 2 gallons of 91 with you.

you tell that dealership to try harder drugs next time.

If you wait for them to call you and tell them what you owe without you saying not to put anything on your bike and so on, you'll be stuck fronting the bill, and no one but yourself will be liable for paying it but yourself.

that occured to me right after I posted that. i called them and asked if they planned on replacing anything and he said no new parts were needed. just the labor costs for diagnostics and cleaning out the tank and fuel lines. so shouldnt be too bad overall. we will see if Shell helps me out or not.
