I have a 2001 R6.... I know it is not an R1 :(
N E way.....seems that after the engine warms up and maybe about 45 minutes into riding, the idle will be too fast. If pull the clutch or stop, engine will idle at just above 2000. If I blip the throttle it goes back to normal, just under 1000. Any ideas????

Does this only happen after you use the choke? It sounds like either the throttle plates are hangin up or the choke is not releasing all the way and you have to blip the throttle to release it.

not sure. I did use half choke this morning when I started it up. I will check the choke cable. Not sure how to check the throttle plates. Any info would be great.

You would have to pull the carbs loose when it is stuck to be sure but start with the cable they can bind up real easy. Move the choke lever back and forth a few times and see if it frees up

Back to normal at below 1000 ??? The idle should be at 1500 or so.
Sounds to me like you're riding your bike way too lean.
Do you have a slipon? Have you re-jetted the bike with that slip-on?

Swedies Right, Once your bikes all warmed up it shouldn't be idling below 1000rpm. Not sure about R6's ( I have an R1 ) but my bikes set at 1250 RPM (what the manual says)

The bike is all stock except blinkers. I looked at the choke lever last night. It did appear to stick about every third or fourth time. Kept moving it back and forth a few more times and now it does not stick at all.
It is still under warranty, should I take it in and heve the techs look at it? And it idles at about 1300 rpms now. Thinking of getting this slip on

that explains it you need to check your blinker fluid it is probebly a little low.:)
