First R6

Hey guys, new to the forum. Been riding a while and involved on many other forums. Just purchased a 2008 R6 for track use, although I will still get it registered and use occasionally as a 2nd street bike.

Time to read up before asking any stupid questions!

Re: First R6

Thanks guys! I've been riding GSXRs 600/750s since 2006 so this is a nice change. Definitely a different ride from the Suzuki's.

Here is the R6



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

In the process of converting it back to street so I can get it registered. Then back to track plastics after I beat on it a little

Previous owner had installed:

Brembo XRO1170 Billet Radial Master Cylinder
Giles AS31GT Rearsets
Full Akro Evo exhaust
CRG levers
PC3
Carrozzeria Forged Wheels
Spiegler SS lines
GPR steering stabilizer
Ohlins TTX shock
Woodcraft clipons
Woodcraft case covers
Braking SK2 rotors front and rear


And the S1k for you aleithauser
