Looking for help with a few things..

1) Is there a way to adjust the idle on an 08 r6? Is it done through the ecu or can it be done manually? If through the ecu, how would one go about getting this done?

2) Was wondering if it was ok to change just the sprockets on my bike while not changing the used chain (it is fairly new). Or do I have to change out the chain as well? Would there be any weird wear patterns?

3) For those who have Sharkskinz on their 08+ R6's. I seem to have a hell of a time putting on the tail section because of that metal boomerang looking piece that the seat attaches to. Is this normal? It makes it a mission just to get the tail section off the bike.

Would it be ok to cut down that metal piece so that I don't have to pull the tail fairing apart as far as possible just to fit it on?

I can only answer idle question. Should be a knob on right side of bike near oil cap to adjust your idle

Re: Looking for help with a few things..

Thanks for the response mintsoda. I have been trying to do some research and from what I found, they say to not use that knob on 08+ and instead change the idle through the ecu. Not really sure how to get that done though.
