  1. 05 yamaha r6 (thoughts on dyno numbers??)

    General Discussions
    Nobody should ever "believe" the peak numbers on a dyno. Even if you try to adjust for barometric pressure, etc, every dyno is going to be different - and will typically even yield slightly different readings on the same exact bike on different days. The numbers on the dyno are best used to...
  2. Top reasons you choose R6 over R1?

    Nah, my akrapovic makes hindles run away screaming with fear and awe. [emoji23]

    Try again buddy. My sister would laugh at you and most certainly would prefer my r1 to whatever shit show you might have. [emoji38]
  4. Top reasons you choose R6 over R1?

    General Discussions
    You must be at different races than I am...... Not to mention the completely BS argument about an R6 being "too slow" or the "no soul" comment. My bet is that there is probably not a single person on this site that can ride an R6 to its full potential. Don't get me wrong. I really enjoy my...

    Dumbest. Statement. Ever.
  6. Top reasons you choose R6 over R1?

    General Discussions
    I have an older R6, a '15 R1 and a '16 FZ07R - all in race trim. All have race bodywork, full Ohlins (or KTech for the FZ) suspension, etc. To be honest, IMHO both the R1 and the R6 are terrible "street bikes". They are awesome track/race bikes. I would not have the slightest interest in...
  7. Jennings

    South East
    I go to Jennings once per year in February for a private event. It's flat as a pancake, but it's fun and has plenty of grip. One caution at Jennings - they are very strict about noise. If you're running an aftermarket exhaust, you may or may not have a problem. My R6 with Akrapovic hasn't...
  8. How safe is it to ride a bike nowadays?

    Off Topic Talk
    This post is spot on. Riding today is FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR more dangerous than it has ever been on public roads - at least in the US. Drivers are in vehicles that are faster, quieter inside, with far more distractions than they ever had before. Multifunction displays, phones...

    Meant kept hearing top end has to come off first.....
  10. '03-05 R6 Trans Rebuild Question

    Garage / Mechanical Help
    Thanks. I keep hearing that the top end has to come in for and don’t understand why. Mine is my spare bike. It stopped shifting a few weeks ago but the guy riding it was able to get it back to the pits. Hoping it’s just shift forks or something minor. It’s a great little bike and is really well...
  11. '03-05 R6 Trans Rebuild Question

    Garage / Mechanical Help
    Does anybody know factually whether or not the cylinder head, cams, etc have to come off a 2003-2005 R6 motor just to split the case and work on the shift drum/shift forks? It doesn't look like it should need to from what I'm seeing, however the Haynes says it does - but provides no reason why...
  12. Exhaust Cutout

    Exhaust and fuel delivery
    Cutouts reduce performance even on cars. They’re just to create noise.

  15. Racetech G2-R 25mm Cartridges - 2005 R6

    Bike Parts For Sale
    SOLD! Selling a set of Racetech G2-R 25mm Cartridges. I purchased these in November 2014, and they were installed that month by Brian Livengood in February 2015. Ran them on the '05 R6 (track only) for both track days and some racing for the next couple years. The bike was then used...
  16. Shell Rotella 15w40 oil analysis

    Oil and Lubrication
    Wrong. Just as oil technology has improved so has the complexity and detail of modern engines. Very very bad assumption. You can play frogger for years and be lucky. Or you could smoke an engine in an effort to save a little on oil. People should run what they want. But unless they have...
  17. Shell Rotella 15w40 oil analysis

    Oil and Lubrication
    A clarification. You won’t find examples of failures PROVEN to have been due to rotella, Quaker state, pennzoil or whatever. They fail and the oil “may” have been a factor. Who knows? I won’t chance it.
  18. Shell Rotella 15w40 oil analysis

    Oil and Lubrication
    Very very bad logic. Find me an example of ANY track or race bike that failed factually because of the oil. You won’t. You’re arguing about failure vs not failing. Lots and lots of degrees between them. Like I said, I’ve factually proven that oil does behave differently and that rotella can...
  19. Shell Rotella 15w40 oil analysis

    Oil and Lubrication
    And there, exactly, is the problem. Nobody has been talking about "how terrible T6 is for your bike". Simply, that other products may be better. Furthermore, nobody HERE has shown a documented engine failure because it was running T6 - nor would it likely be possible to do so. Unless...
  20. Shell Rotella 15w40 oil analysis

    Oil and Lubrication
    I'm amazed at some of the comments I'm reading here. Some people even seem to prefer anecdotal information rather than cold, hard, scientific fact. Or, put another way, if they walked back and forth across a highway 10 times while blindfolded without getting hit by a semi, then it MUST be the...
