Talking R6Rammy's 08 R6 LE build thread

So with a lot of folks posting their build threads, figured I'd start my own and post pics along the way. This might start to look tacky with a lot of gold parts on there, not my style, but figured yellow and gold will be a lot different than any others on this forum.

Starting point:

08 R6 LE, Puig Z-racing CF windscreen, Comp Werkes FE kit.


Current important mod list:

1. Full Leo Vince Factory R SS headers ,Ti can
2. Bazzaz Z-Fi fuel controller
3. Carrozzeria wheels
4. Accumen gear indicator
5. Brembo RCS
6. Fren Tubo Carbotech Type 4 brake lines
6. Alth full floating front rotors
7. Machined/lightened stock rear rotor
8. Stock gearing/drive train
9. Shermoto clutch lever / Brembo brake lever
10. Renthal clip-ons
11. Vortex rearsets
13. Woodcraft case covers
14. Woodcraft frame sliders
15. Vortex rear spools
16. Armour bodies bodywork
17. TechSpec snakeskin traction pads
18. Graves exup eliminator
19. Clear alternatives integrated tail light
20. Fender eliminator

To be added (in hand but not installed): Ohlins 30mm fork cartridge kit, Bauce Flashed ECU


First mods: Remove stock front reflectors,

Pics:

Start point:







First set of mods installed pics:

I'll be the first to say your spools don't match your forks..

Looking good Ram.. Can't wait to see more. I'd make a build thread but I don't think dust counts as a winter mod.

this weekend, a fellow forum member will help me install the gold rims (real tacky), full graves works Ti exhaust CF can and Bazzaz Z-Fi, hope to have more pics after that. Need to buy a aftermarket air filter. Sometime later will install AggRacing block off plates for better tune and a Z-AFM FTW!!!

But for the rear? No one uses the rear and it just adds weight....

Kept the front but ditched the rear a long time ago and am never looking back.
