Known Issues 2011 R6

New to forum. I am considering the purchase of an 2011 R6. Are there any known issues on this model I should be aware of?

Many thanks in advance.

Re: Known Issues 2011 R6

Had mine for 16 months now. Hasn't missed a beat and I've put nearly 9k on it so far.

Oil changes every 3k (plus the original 600 mile change), plugs changed at 8k. Other than that, just gas and fresh set of Pirelli Corsas.

Oh....and a PCV with Autotune. And a GYTR slip-on. MJS headers....BMC filter.....damn...

No real issues for a street/track bike. Don't know about racing though.
