Hey, I'm Matt, I finally found the camera - computer cord so here's my bike
It's a 2002 R-6 that someone used to beat the fuck out of. Im going to change out the headlight and the speed-omiter (?) Now i know absolutely shit about bikes, so the red light (by the tacomiter) is on at all times, I thought it was low oil, so i changed that and added like 2.75 qts which is what some web-site said, and filled up the coolant, but the light won't turn off, and also the bike is spitting flames out of the exhaust whenever i lay on it, which i didn't know if that's a major issue, but if any of you could help my dumb-ass out i would appreciate it. Thanks :rock:

Is it Fuel Injected? If it is it could be a FI light . If the Exhaust is Modified and theres no Power Comander
to change the Fuel Intake All the sensors are reading all over and the FI will go full rich for the mixture. Might be why theres a flame at WOT .. Just my .02. I'd get a Shop Manual, Or do some internet research. Oh by the way
Welcome ! Nice Bike :D

Thanks for the help,I heard that yamaha didn't start fuel injecting the r-6 until 2003, so mine has a carb, I didn't check out the air filter so That's something i'll look at this weekend and about the red light, this is exactly what i'm talking about
