The cutter one it looks like a tiny disk. Make sure you tape it up and use a permanent marker I have in the past done this and had a shitty line that you could see. Oh crap just noticed its riveted as well do you have a rivet gun and some rivets lying around.

I think I have some of those wheels too. But I think we are thinking of different things regarding shortening... I will show you what I meant when I do I lol. I won't need to rivet anything.

My god. This exhaust sounds sweet. I rode it for about 15 minutes today (installed it temporarily).

It is so much deeper sounding than the Yoshi was. As soon as I get a chance I'll film a fly-by or two.

It is much louder though, definitely have to wear earplugs, but doesn't bother me cause I already do all the time (except this little 15 minute ride I took).

Here are two flybys.

I have yet to fully install it. Waiting on the connector pipe to ship. The way it's currently installed, it sticks out past the footpeg. When I get the piece and install it, it won't.

Re: Rocky5000100's 2002 R6

I ordered Grabit Screw extractor bits to get the stripped screws of the gas tank out. The extractors worked great. One of the screws was seized and the drill didn't have enough torque to get it out, so I popped the bit into a 1/4" socket and it twisted right out!

I highly recommend having a set of these around the house:
Amazon Amazon


Finally got the cap off so I can finish prep and start painting the tank.







Also, stripped the fairings and headlights/taillights off and will be posting them for sale soon so I can buy track fairings





Oh yes, and the custom pipe for my LOR Exhaust is being lathed out a little bit at my dad's work, I should have that permanently installed soon.


Also, what do you guys think of this paint scheme for the track fairings? Do you think I should do a black stripe down the center of the front, tank, and tail?

Don't put too much energy into the paint broseph.. You'll just be that much more upset when you see it sliding across the pavement. You saw me after my crash-- did I look concerned about my bike at all? HELL NAW. That's the attitude you need for a track bike, or you'll be too scared of binning it to take it any faster.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Ha yea I don't plan on spending too much time on it, but I get bored and I like doing projects like this. Total supplies are <$50 so at least I'm not spending a few hundred on a paint job like some people on this forum.

I'm honestly a little surprised how well your bike is holding up with all that crashing you seem to do with it
