Potential New Yamaha Owner

Hello All,

New to this forum. I'll be buying a new 2017 r6 in the next couple weeks and I wanted to get on a forum to see whats up in the Yamaha world. Been riding for 7 years, all on a 07 gsxr 600. Several track days here and there as well.

Looking forward to seeing mods and how-tos for the new bikes.

Thanks!

I've had my gsxr 600 for 6 years and a lot of stator/rectifier issues. I'll be buying a brand new r6 in the next few weeks.

I constantly hear about stator and rectifier issues on all the bike brands, and I've responded to a ton of threads here regarding them. But usually it's older ones that are having failures. Although, I've never had one go bad on any bike I've owned.

I've had to replace my stator 3 times and finally went with a Rick's one but my bike died this past weekend so IDK what the hell is going on.

Trying to get it fixed and then sell it so I can grab the new r6
