Question Pushing the R6 up a step

I am thinking of keeping my R6 at my flat's stairwell. But to do that, I will need to push it up one step (about 4" high) at the door and the width of the door is about 1m wide. Is this feasible?

Will I need a ramp? And can I do it via manually pushing/without riding?

Use a board for a ramp and push it up. Or if the ppl around you are cool ride it up

Make sure the step doesnt touch the bottom of the fairing

Re: Pushing the R6 up a step

wait... so supposing the step will in no way touch/scrape the single step, is it even possible to push it up a step (about 4") manually without a board/ramp?

Haha and I doubt riding in is an option; since the ppl around seem to care a lot each time the main door slams.

Will I have enough clearance width wise?; the corridor is 1.1m. but the door is 1m.

Re: Pushing the R6 up a step

I do it all the time. Just grab the thing and man handle it up there. The back is easy, just need to use those big boy muscles for the front.

And a normal step. 4'' isn't much...

Re: Pushing the R6 up a step

If you can't lift it up by yourself 2 people definitely can. The front is the heaviest, once that is up you can lift the rear pretty easy.

Ride it up. If your neighbors have an issue with it ask them if they're going to pay for the bike if/when it gets stolen. Obviously be courteous as to when you do it.

I ride my bike into my house every time I get back home and am done riding for the day. Goes in the door way no problems and up the 2" sill with no issues
