Re: Upgrading the '07 R6

If you have the money at hand, I'd say 2-3 weeks depending on the shipping method chosen and how much free time you have. If you have a decent amount of time, and have everything already on order/shipped/pending, then Id say 2 weeks tops

Oh I forgot, all of those upgrades are already home. The only thing is I go home from school on the 17th. All I need to do when I get home is take apart the bike and put everything on.

Ok, so 2.5 weeks give or take 2 days. Can't wait to see videos of the beast, I leave for boot camp on the 17th so just PM me some videos of your bike. I hope I can start modding mine soon as I get back too. Unfortunately they're saying I can't drive a motorcycle during my 10 day boot camp leave, they won't know if I don't get pulled over

If you have all the right tools and any mechanical experience id say you could get that done in 1 solid day, maybe 2.

I'd say a solid day. I put on block off plates, slide stops, full exhaust, PCIII, K&N air filter, spark plugs, and an ignition advance in my 05 in about 15 hours of garage time All in all, but I didn't do it all at one time so I had to take parts on and off.

Re: Upgrading the '07 R6

You didn't mention anything about getting it mapped. Make sure you do this after all finishing those engine/airbox mods. Custom map is what you will need. Don't cheap out.

Agreed. I'm running someone else's map until I get the $$$ to get a dyno one done. It works but I can tell I'm missing power.

Re: Upgrading the '07 R6

Definitely will get a custom-tune after the mods when I can afford it but in the mean time I'll be running someone else's tune.
