99-02 R6 owners in here please

i have a new toy in the garage, it's a 99 R6, and i need a little info on it. i have the service manual but i can't seem to find what i need. there is what looks like vent hoses coming out if the top of the carborators into a y connector that is run to the ram air duckting. how it is run doesn't look stock to me and i would like to put it back to stock. i cant imagine any use for puting the "ram air" into the card vents.

can you look at your bike and see if you can tell what im talking about and where these "vent hoses" are suppose to be running too.

Carb vents?

I think what you maybe refering to are the CV air ways, Which equalize in the air box.

This air is raising the slides.

I have an 01 R6 but it's in pieces now so I can't be much help. Gus (Resurrection) who posted above me knows his shit though. He has been a life saver with mine and once I buy the parts he'll be finishing it up.

EDIT: I'm drunk and wasn't paying attention. Thought you were a new member.

Can't help you with that...but...I do have some advice.

99-02 R6's have this "shifter spring" as I've heard it called, issue. When it fails it feels like the gears are missing, and problems of that sort. $1 part, easy fix. When I had my 2000, had this issue and it drove me nuts. I was so happy to finally resolve it, plus resolve it cheap and easy, that I like to share this tid bit of info.

If you ever feel your gears are slipping. Check on that spring. (also heard it called a clutch spring).

I had one of those not long ago. I think that is the way it was run from the factory but I no longer have the bike to compare to.

I think youre thinking of the shift detent spring. I've heard of that happening but whats more common is that the dogs on the gears wear out and then under hard acceleration it'll pop in and out of 2nd gear. Had it happen to mine so I went and swapped the trans out with one from a 04 R6. The 03+ models have 5 dogs on the gears compared to the 99-02's 3.

I think its still worth it to examine the spring for defects before replacing the trans. Like you said its a cheap part and a lot less hassle.

To the threadstarter, I have my 02 r6 stored in my garage, I'll see if I can get a pic for you soon.

are these hoses larger than a vent tube?
Maybe 12mm

Actually I'm not sure that's the one. I think that was going to be the next thing we checked. Maybe you're right. The spring was like a 1/2 long maybe. In my case it snapped in half and was just sitting in the bottom of the case when we opened it up. It MAY be the same thing, but I'm thinking not. (though this was years ago and I'm known to have a bad memory). I just remember really being worried that I would have to replace the trans, and turns out it was just a simple fix.

the way it is set up now doesnt look right, it has been adapted from about 1/4 vacume hose to about 1/2 hose. i dont "think" the factory would have done this. also it looks like a "hack job" of how it is plumbed into the ductwork, it looks like the hole wasnt drilled correctly. Im gunna try and take some pics with my phone to help sho you what im talking about.

That 1/2inch hose is the slide vacuum.

If you'll notice the casting for this hose goes into the slide diaphragm aria on top of the carb

All they realy need to be is open they should run to a small plastic box attached to the duct work.

http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmot...m8965sch114853

Running them into the air box will also filter the air drawn into the diaprham the the little plastic box in the link is #48 which has a foam filter in it also.

you are the man!! that is exactly what i needed. i have a feeling when the bikeis doing 60+ mph and the "ram air" comes into effect the way its routed now could caus an issue. im gunna get all the stock stuff and plumb it back to how it should be.

I've seen several with the two hoses just tucked up and out of the way bikes run fine.

Just don't cover them
