GSXR 600 Dies at Idle @ stops

Hey guys, I just picked up a 2005 GSXR 600 with 700 miles on it. When I start up the bike in the morning it runs fine until the bike warms up to around 130 degrees. Once the bike is warmed up, it seems to idle really rough until it dies. Also, when I take it out and go to push the clutch in, or stop, the bike dies.

This bike had been sitting around for a year or so before I bought it. I replaced the old gas with 91 octane, and I drained some of the oil out of the engine since it was around half a quart over. Keep in mind this bike only has 700 miles on it. Still barely broke in. Any help would be great! Thanks

Where would I find this idle air control unit? I have been told it might be a throttle position sensor, coil, or IAP sensor. This bike barely has any miles on it. It just baffles me that something could go wrong already.

Or it could be the warm idle adjustment - should be 1,300 rpm +/- 100. Adjustment procedures are in the manual.

also,

1. A three year old bike with only 700 miles has been sitting around for probably about three years. You should drain the oil completely and change it.

2. You don't need (or want) 91 octane. Your 600 is designed to run on 87.

The idle has been adjusted, but trust me it is not that. I can drain the oil out and see if that works. I hate to take it to the stealership to have them look at it. They charge 89.95 an hour.

gsxrguy1,go get a can of Seafoam from your local Napa store. Then add a small splash to the fuel tank and run the bike out on a smooth long road.Give the bike roll ons with throttle. Let it pull hard.This stuff should help clear gumed up jets and improove idle quality for you.It only cost about $9.00 a can.

Thanks, I found the problem out yesterday. It turns out the previous owner had attempted a wheelie and dumped the bike. He did not pick it back up for a few minutes cause oil to run into the spark plugs. It had fouled out a plug. I changed the plugs and all is good. Thanks again.

Im glad that you have found the trouble and were able to get it fixed.I wonder if seafoam would have cleared your plugs?

sparkplugs

Hey gsxrguy1,

How did you figure out that the sparkplugs weren't working? I'm assuming mine is having the same problem. Is it pretty easy to replace the sparkplugs?

pretty much everything everyone above me said could be the problem. i would first suggest changing the spark plugs and changing the oil. Even if this doesn't fix it, it probably needs to be done anyways.
If that doesn't work, try to adjust the idle at which the throttle is set... even if it's not the true cause of the problem, it will hopefully fix it anyways

It's a '04 with 10,800 miles on it. It was just serviced not long ago. And I rode it with no problems when I first got it.

Is it hard to switch out the spark plugs? Is it just taking engine cover out? I don't wanna go to any shop if it's easy to do. Man, I'm such a noob.
