Oscar - 2001 R6 Rebuild Log
 
Hi,

Yesterday I bought a 2001 YZF-R6. It starts and idles, but has bad hesitation and will need some work before being out on the road.

It has:
  • Aftermarket exhaust
  • Dynojet carb kit
  • Rear frame extenders

It needs:
  • New front brake master cylinder reservoir
  • Repaired engine mount
  • Carb work
  • New foot pegs
  • New gas tank

Previous owner said it fell off a trailer.. Hence the damage.

I tried changing the thread title to name the bike Oscar but it either didn't work or hasn't updated.

I took Carb #1 apart and it was really clean and looked properly assembled, so I'm thinking the hesitation may be due to the lack of an air filter and the unconnected vacuum lines off the carb. I'm going to go through and clean and check each of them, then see if just installing them properly fixes the issue.

The new brake parts arrived today!

The replacement connection kit fit great, but I couldn't get the reservoir mounted in a way that worked well.

New air filter arrived today.. in an opened package. It has poor fitment and extra mold rubber I had to trim. I think I just got sold an engineering sample.

I took the last three carburetors apart, and accidentally broke one of the coolant couplings. Yikes, they're $50 from bikebandit :-/

I also took the brake caliper off to flush it, but noticed 1) one of the pads is almost spend, and 2) there's mounts for a mirrored caliper and disk on the other side... Do 2001 R6's have dual front brakes? If so, I wonder why mine doesn't.

Man, these brake pads are tiny!

Yes, all R6s have dual front brakes. One of the prior owners must have removed. Get a Yamaha or Haynes or Clymer manual, will save you some time and headaches.
Front brake reservoir hose looks long, might be why problematic mounting. Have fun with the build.

Thanks oldbonez.

I double checked the manual I found online, and it only shows disassembly for the left side, but does show two hydraulic hoses attached to the master cylinder. I guess I'll keep my eyes open for a right hand side caliper/disk.

I dunno man. It's like visiting the wise man on the mountain, some things are only apparent after enough engagement with the topic at hand.

We'll get you sorted though. Do you have a bike? How's the weather over there?
