    My son has a Yamaha 2012 yzf r6 50 year anniversary edition bike. He blew the motor like 2 weeks after buying it. We are looking for a new used one. Would the following work: 2015 Yamaha YZF R6 YZF R6 YZFR6 Or does anyone know where we can get one with low mileage. Thanks for help.

    Hello, I have little problem with my engine. I buy Rj05 from 03' with 50 700 kilometers mileage. When I return to home after 100 kilometers I notice ticking. Its usually only form 2 000 to 5 000 rpm when I ride(on any gear). I don't hear this on higher rpm. It's from left side of engine and...

    Tank slapper under hard acceleration cause me to low side probably between 60-100 (honest don't remember). I cracked the stator cover and got a good amount of small pebbles and dirt inside the cover. I believe the tip over sensor kicked in, but I was in a dazed-ish state cause I hit the back of...

    Hi! I actually have a few questions to all you pros out there. .. I ride a 05 beauty but she is riding a bit off. I want to explain it as running "dry", if anyone understands what I'm trying to describe. I went for a short ride, and she began to overheat spiking up to 204 on a 50 degree day...

    Hello! I'm having a 2007 R6R with 38K miles on it. Here's what's been doing lately: - Rough idle: When it's too cold out, the bike idles rough and until it heats up it stabilizes. - Choppy riding: I don't seem to have any issues on low RPMs. But here's the funny part, I can't be on a constant...

    I am reading the owner's manual and it promotes the Yamalube brand (free advertising for Yamaha). The SAE viscosity grades that it recommends are: 10W-50 10W-40 15W-40 20W-40 20W-50 I have found this resource which is very useful: Maintenance Schedule Here, it mentions: Yamalube 10W-40 or...

    New guy here. I just bought this 2008 R6 from a young guy a month ago. Rides great no complaints, I fill up yesterday and this morning I find a good leak and it reeks of fuel.

    I am new rider and chose an R6 as my first bike. Though when purchasing my bike everything seemed fine, when I ride for a longer period of time and the bike gets hot, it starts to stutter and has issues accelerating from first gear at low RPMs. Also the engine, when idle, doesnt sound that good...

    I have a 2008 r6. I’ve been trying to replace the shift forks and maybe the transmission after a accident, but a lot of shops have told me it would be better to just replace the motor. I can’t find a motor for a 08 r6. I was wondering what other r6 motor would fit into my bike without me losing...

    Hey all, what is the best way to find a replacement engine for a 09 R6R. I get that anything from 08 to 14 will work but what's the best way to find and acquire one? Looked at flea-bay with slim pickings, trolling salvage yards, and tried joining a motorcycle club (pushing my bike to the...

    Hi, I have an 03 that I bought last summer with just under 17k miles and it now has 22k miles on it. I think I'm the 4th owner. I ride it on both the street and track and tend to ride it in its powerband most of the time. A few weeks ago, I was cruising on the highway at 10k RPM when suddenly I...
