You would lower the front ride height and raise the forks through the triple.

Go 6mm. 10mm is too much. 6mm works well with the pures.

I always thought the 60 part of 120/60 was the sidewall height in mm. Turns out it is the aspect ratio of the width (60% of 120). Is this right?

If so, then would the calculations be something like this?:

120 x .7 = 84mm
120 x .6 = 72mm


I understand that it may be slightly different on different brands. I figured I'd ask Chief since he runs Power Pures like I do.

Also I see a how to: http://www.r6messagenet.com/forums/r...ries-tire.html
which states to raise the forks through the triple by 8mm.


I just confuse myself the more research I do on suspension


Ideally, what you wanna do is measure from the center of the axle to the ground on both tires mounted. That's the change you want to make if you wanna be more exact about it. Add 1-2mm for a seriously worn out tire vs new one.

Re: Chief's 02 R6 Thread

Impressive thread Chief! Just read the entire thing... lol. Ive had my 01 for two years now and absolutely love it. Im glad you decided not to get rid of yours as it is one hell of a machine! I have been navigating the forum since Ive owned the bike and finally decided to join last week. You definatley seem to be the most knowlegeable on 1st gens. That being said I will probably be contacting you with any questions I stumble upon as I continue to mod my 01. I might be interested in purchasing parts/fluids from you in the future as well, so ill be in touch!

Re: Chief's 02 R6 Thread

Updates? I feel like I just watched 3 seasons of an awesome new interactive show on speed, and it just got canceled. Chief show FTW! I need somethin to pass this time while trying to rig this effed up crankcase. (Guess previous owner snapped a chain, guess the surprise I got when I got the chain cover off... First "street" bike ever, 02 r6, and just got laid off, eff me right)

But I just read this whole thing, like 8hrs straight including videos and all. I think my eyes are still bleeding. Lol... But hella difference between your first track day vid and the last. But keep it coming, 1st gen love!

Re: Chief's 02 R6 Thread

I'm in the process of rebuilding my 2000. My timing jumped while I was working on it this October and I've finally gotten around to tearing into the engine. Got everything re-timed and as it should, but it looks like I have low compression in all 4 cylinders. I checked the valve clearances and all of the exhaust valves are in clearance and all but 4 intake valves are well within clearance, the other 4 are barely in the acceptable range but they're still good. Might as well re do the shims while I've got the valve cover off.

I did a rudimentary leak down test by hooking my air compressor to each of the 4 cylinders. I didn't hear any leaking through the valves but I did hear quite a bit into the crankcase. That got me thinking though, all of the leak down occurring now was occurring before my timing jumped in October and at the time my engine still produced enough power to lift the front wheel under power alone. I don't know how much of a problem it will be, or if some of it is a result of the cylinder linings being "washed" of oil from not having been run. Oh well, I guess I'll see about putting the carbs on and see if I can get it to turn over.

Any suggestions chief?

Re: Chief's 02 R6 Thread

Feel pretty bitterswet after reading this thread. No more '02 for Chief from what I know. Answers all the questions you've got as well.

Also shout out to Rocky. Very reputable seller who has learned a lot in the last few years from what I can tell. I bought a LOR from him recently that was for a 06-09 R6 (he mounted it on his '02) and was very helpful in helping me install it via this forum and gmail with pictures and instructions. Actually over the phone as well.

I just love this forum. So much help from members!
