My tear down and rebuild

Hey all, picked up my 2nd R6. It's a 2007 which has been crashed. Picked her up cheap

Here is how it is as of now



Aiming to strip down (to check and clean everything) then make it a road legal track bike.

Cheers

BIKE NOW FINISHED (more pics on page 9)

Re: My tear down and rebuild

keep posting updates as you do the teardown and rebuild

Update #2

Dropped the exhaust. Man, one of the manifold bolts was rounded to ****. Took ages to get it off! Anyway's off with the junk standard system and have a nice replacment lined up!




Tank came off without any dramas



Time to start removing the electrics from the back of the bike (going to remove the whole loom)



Rear totally stripped and my other R6 in the back ground



Air box off. The filter was filthy! will post pics of that later. Loom almost out! Think will have to drop some more parts before I can fully remove it

Best of luck to you on your rebuild, purchased my first R6 in similiar condition this year. wanted to present you a cheap fix for the broken rectifier bracket. It can be plastic welded back together with a soldering iron and a abs plastic weld kit.
Bike looks great though
