Yeah, there's a dude on here, Shawn3210 or something(always forget the numbers at the end of his name) who started racing his R6 at Chuck, then switched over to a 250. He's gonna go back to the R6 this season, but said he learned a huge amount by riding the little Ninjette - at that it's actually more fun because the grid is so much bigger.

I was talking to Brian about the paint job last time I was out there at Arroyo and he was telling me his brother painted them. Looked like a real clean job. If you're serious about getting rid of them shoot me a PM with a price... I may be interested in them as a back-up set... Seeing as how I doubt I'm done crashing yet...

Course these Armour Bodies held up REALLY well in my highside, but a spare set would be sweet, for the right price... Like I said, shoot me a PM and we'll see what happens!

Also, I was hoping I could get some guys from Arroyo interested in heading out to INDE at some point next year. We should all try and make some plans to head out at some point! I've got everything for a nice set-up in the pits! Just don't have a trailer yet...

I'm already siked about next season! I'm ready to get back out there ASAP! Just scored a new suit, going to upgrade my boots and gloves too! I'm already getting ready! Bike is set other then a couple upgrades I plan to make here VERY soon. With the BAUCE Racing flash I found my stock throttle is shit, trying to get to WOT I've got to roll my hand up to get the throttle maxed out, so a Motion Pro Revolver is in the works, as well as Vortex rearsets. I just sold my Woodcrafts because I need something adjustable...

Anywho, looking forward to seeing you out there!

Def post some pics and all of the build with Brian's bike! A ton of guys, myself included have build threads... We love a good build thread 'round these parts!

PM on its way.

LMAO Yeah I saw you got new gear but wasnt all your stuff new?

I thought about starting a build thread but honestly IDK what else this bike might need lol. I've gotten to know the Triumphs pretty well but this Yamaha will be a learning experience-I will be very lost for a while.

I'm excited for this season too for sure! Having some new toys to try out should be fun. Last season was a little rough so I'm excited for a fresh start. Are you going out for the TD at Arroyo in January?

What I will need is advice about how to ride this thing, the 675 has a much flatter power band with a lot of grunt. It will take time to get used to keeping the RPMs so high

Yeah that suit I sold was worn 3 times... Sold if for $350, spent $550 on a brand new suit that was a step or two above that plain jane starter suit. It did it's job though! This new suit I won't need to replace for a good long while, so I jumped on it.

As for the R6, I will say at Arroyo(from my short time riding there) it tends to be a little fidgity in lower RPM's, but I got my ECU flashed by BAUCE Racing and it smoothed it out a ton. Running -1/+2 and the new flashed ECU it was much easier for me. Keeping the RPM's at 8k or better is where it was at. Most of the track I was in 2nd, except down the straights really. There are a couple turns I tried 1st, worked alright as well, but preferred second for the drive out... You'll have fun learning the new machine. I don't know what all Brian had done to his 6, but I would def recommend the ECU flash from chiefsmokedawg at BAUCE Racing. It made my bike a whole new machine. MUCH happier with the powerband and all, he cuts down engine breaking, and boosts the idle a bit too because of the low oil pressure at low RPM's. You could take mine for a rip if you were interested in checking it out.

Also, if you've ever got any questions about the bike. Feel free to hit me up. I'll PM you my number. I've had mine torn down soooo many times. I'll be doing the bearings here soon, new plugs, and all that jazz again here soon. Anytime you've got any questions just let me know!

I honestly didn't know there was trackdays in January. I'll have to see. I may be out of town. It'd be a bit chilly out there... I wouldn't even ride till the afternoon... haha It was cold that last race weekend when I was out there...

Lookin forward to seeing your 6 out there!

Re: New Track guy in PHX

One additional thing I meant to add is that you'll definitely want to get a set of ETI tank sliders. A couple of our vendors here on the forum carry them... Like Justin @ Agg Racing. They are orth the money, especially if you do wreck. The 06-07 R6's are known to catch fire if the tank is punctured in a wreck. I've got a set on mine. They worked great! Made out of Kevlar to keep your tank safe, and in one piece. I'd hate to see your new ride go up in smoke. I just noticed in the picture he doesn't have them...

Yeah I had heard that about them catching fire-freaking crazy!! I will be picking up a set ASAP, thanks for the heads up. We will have to crack a beer at Arroyo and you can learn me on all the finer points of R6 ownership

Yeah, I just worry b/c I'm painfully slow on a 600 there so I cant imagine what me on a 250 would look like. It's hard b/c Arroyo and CVR are like night/day different so everything from supension set up to rider skills is different. ASR puts MUCH more emphasis on hard brakeing and driving off corners. CVR seem to be much more about keeping corner speed high.
