PM on its way.
LMAO Yeah I saw you got new gear but wasnt all your stuff new?
I thought about starting a build thread but honestly IDK what else this bike might need lol. I've gotten to know the Triumphs pretty well but this Yamaha will be a learning experience-I will be very lost for a while.
I'm excited for this season too for sure! Having some new toys to try out should be fun. Last season was a little rough so I'm excited for a fresh start. Are you going out for the TD at Arroyo in January?
What I will need is advice about how to ride this thing, the 675 has a much flatter power band with a lot of grunt. It will take time to get used to keeping the RPMs so high
Yeah that suit I sold was worn 3 times... Sold if for $350, spent $550 on a brand new suit that was a step or two above that plain jane starter suit. It did it's job though! This new suit I won't need to replace for a good long while, so I jumped on it.
As for the R6, I will say at Arroyo(from my short time riding there) it tends to be a little fidgity in lower RPM's, but I got my ECU flashed by BAUCE Racing and it smoothed it out a ton. Running -1/+2 and the new flashed ECU it was much easier for me. Keeping the RPM's at 8k or better is where it was at. Most of the track I was in 2nd, except down the straights really. There are a couple turns I tried 1st, worked alright as well, but preferred second for the drive out... You'll have fun learning the new machine. I don't know what all Brian had done to his 6, but I would def recommend the ECU flash from chiefsmokedawg at BAUCE Racing. It made my bike a whole new machine. MUCH happier with the powerband and all, he cuts down engine breaking, and boosts the idle a bit too because of the low oil pressure at low RPM's. You could take mine for a rip if you were interested in checking it out.
Also, if you've ever got any questions about the bike. Feel free to hit me up. I'll PM you my number. I've had mine torn down soooo many times. I'll be doing the bearings here soon, new plugs, and all that jazz again here soon. Anytime you've got any questions just let me know!
I honestly didn't know there was trackdays in January. I'll have to see. I may be out of town. It'd be a bit chilly out there... I wouldn't even ride till the afternoon... haha It was cold that last race weekend when I was out there...
Lookin forward to seeing your 6 out there! To view links or images in this forum your post count must be 5 or greater. You currently have 0 posts.
