2008+ r6 models

I am wondering what the most common problems are with the '08+ R6's?

Thanks

Re: 2008+ r6 models

The only issue I had with mine was one of the fork seals started to leak. I had bought used, however, and it was probably from the previous owner.

I do hear that plastic right under the tank (where your knee goes) tends to break off a tad easy. Hasn't happened to me though.

(Also, subbed)

Re: 2008+ r6 models

haven't heard of real problems with them. they have a very aggressive seating position that to some is very unplesent for long rides.

The plastic under my tank cracked after my highside

Other than that... I had 0 issues after 45k miles.

Re: 2008+ r6 models

A few problems I've had with my 09

1. Checks hurting from excessive smiling while riding
2. Constant talk about how you wish you were riding
3. Complaining about the cost of all the cool upgrades you want to buy yet you still buy them
4. The cost of track days
5. The cost of new tires after several trackdays
6. The cost of race fees
7. After 2 high sides the front stay broke, I mean what a piece of junk it should have lasted at least 4-5 more
8. As stated before, Winter, I hate you mother nature, give me global warming so I can ride all year long
9. Listening to people tell me I’m dumb, crazy, stupid for riding.
10. Figuring out what I was going to name my bike. That took some time

Thanks
many of the owners simply don't know how to ride them properly. that's probably the number 1 problem for most years, tho.

i haven't heard anything specific that plagues these bikes. but i'm sure there's something...
