7. After 2 high sides the front stay broke, I mean what a piece of junk it should have lasted at least 4-5 more
8. As stated before, Winter, I hate you mother nature, give me global warming so I can ride all year long
9. Listening to people tell me Im dumb, crazy, stupid for riding.
10. Figuring out what I was going to name my bike. That took some time

I would call Yamaha and complain about that sh!t. I mean the first time the bike flipped twice the last one it only flipped once, I should have at least gotten one lowside out if it, poorly built piece of junk

1.Everybody keeps trying to sit or touch my R6

2. Many people walk by and stare at it, and want to take pictures with it

3. Black R6s get dusty, need to wash it often

4. Loves to rev, I find myself fighting the urge to haul ass on it

I only have one speed: GO!!!

Re: 2008+ r6 models

ive had an 08 for a while now, 2 pretty bad track wrecks where the bike looked toast, not 1 actual problem (apart from broken parts from wrecking)

as long as you maintain these things properly and didnt get one with some manufacturer defect, i gotta say they are reliable and well made.

+ ive pulled a couple of these motors and seen the internals with over 30k on the motor, saw no issues. . as long as you regularly maintain it

Re: 2008+ r6 models

Incidentally the second gens are well built too, the only problems I had with my '05 were self created, like when I dropped the gas tank and it pulled two of the throttle bodies out of their boots. Took me a while to science that one.
