Chief's 02 R6 Thread

I decided I wanted to make a thread for my bike just to document it's progress and discuss it with anyone who is interested.

I have a black and red 2002 R6 I got as my first bike. I have neck arthritis and had to sell my YFZ450 atv, so I traded it plus a couple G's and got my first sportbike.

Here she is as I got her:




As you can see it came with a D&D pipe, red chrome windscreen, and ridiculous flame harley style mirrors that showed nothing but my elbows. Lemme know if anyone wants to buy em for a cruiser or something.

I only put gas in it for the first season and put about 2000 miles on her. The stock sized front tire (60) series, and the touring tires in general I had on it really made it handle like crap. Any decent lean angle would produce font tire push and it sputtered when maintaining speed.

Re: Chief's 02 R6 Thread

The first thing I did was borrow a bunch of really nice gear from a friend, and ordered up some ebay mirrors which arrived in the fake carbon fiber look, but for $30 I didn't care. The bike is so much safer with mirrors, especially for a newer rider.

Here it is with the new mirrors on one of my first few rides with my friends and their much newer and nicer bike.

You can almost see the stupid Raiders sticker on the front fender.. grrrr

Got some A* full gauntlet gloves, SMK jacket, and an AGV S4 helmet. Also picked up some A* Riding shoes/boots.




Next, I'm gonna get A* track pants since they started making them in a short version. Gonna also try to upgrade to the Sidi vertigo air boots asap.

Re: Chief's 02 R6 Thread

Over the winter I ordered a bunch of stuff. I was most excited about the new tires. Michelin power pures. Changed the whole way the bike felt. It wouldn't even lean with the 60 on the front. Here they are when I first got em.

Re: Chief's 02 R6 Thread

Rear tire with Driven 520 +1 sprocket


Front 70 series Power Pure tire up on the new Vortex stand. Lowered front end 10 mm to compensate for new front tire height. Still need to raise fender so it can go back on. Any tips?


Fork height after adjustment:


Vortex Rear stand, on vortex red spools. Painted Hugger. Undertail kit visible too.


Here's a shot of the chain on the bike. You can see the massive arch on the rear tire, which is only a 180. It really lays the bike down nicely when flipping through turns.

Not sure if you read bout how I cut the chain too short Well, it fit perfect on my friends 08 R6, so I spent hours doing his chain and putting his bike together.. love doing shit twice right? Still, It's better than running two master links, which would have been fine anyway..

A Better shot of the chain. Not cleaned yet.. Gooey
