    I purchased a hotbodies mgp growler from revzilla. The pipe doesn't fit so I called hot bodies and they said they couldn't do anything. Anyone else have the same problem with theirs?

    So I recently did an oil change on my 08 R6 with a K&N 204-1 filter and 10w-40 from Motul 1 where I accidentally over filled it on my first run. Had it smoking on me on my test ride (around 4-5mins). I immediately drained the proper amount of oil to around half dipstick level~ but after another...

    I'm trying to figure out why my bike wont go in Neutral while on, to go to neutral. I have to turn off the bike and then it works. I'm pulling in the clutch lever all the way and doing everything right. My half step in fine because it does shift to neutral while off. Just not while on. Is this a...

    Hey everybody! So here's the deal got an 08' r6r. She's got 50k miles on her. Bought it at 34k. Pretty stock bike. No tune, slip on exhaust, and still has stock headers and cat. As soon as I bought it I went in to do the usual tune-up stuff. Got in to do valve clearances and found that my...

    Previously I was having misfires at low RPMs so I change all the spark plugs on my 2005 Yamaha R6. After I changed them the misfires went away but now when I get it up to 80 to 90mph it stops accelerating and sometime would shut off the engine. Could this be due to a loose spark plug or could...

    I have a 2008 rs6, so basically and 04 r6, and it was sitting up awhile and I took everything apart and cleaned injectors, fuel rail, tank. Ik it’s getting spark on all 4. Anyway it wouldn’t run.

  8. Exhaust and fuel delivery
    I just installed the Akrapovic headers for my bike while my ECU is out to Bauce for tuning. I went to put the stock can back on and it fits, but I don't see a way to clamp it onto the headers. Any recommendations? I like the look of the stock slip-on and would prefer to keep it if possible, but...

    My 2006 R6 has an idle issue and I don't know what the problem would be. It starts up fine but when it reaches 104 F it dies then has a hard time starting again and when it does start I have to keep the throttle open a little so it doesn't stall. and on hot days when its running at 185 F it...

    Hi there, I recently picked up a 2005 R6 Raven (+10HP at night :ROFLMAO:). It has 31,000 Miles on it. I want to be sure to check the valves. The valve cover bolts look as if they've been opened. But i'm not trusting that it was done. I'm fairly mechanically inclined (at least car wise). I...

    I went to adjust my valve clearances instead of paying $600 but just checked them and they were within spec. But now that I got the spark plugs in the Ignition cables in the valve cover on And the throttle bodies and Air filter Box back on I'm lost. I somehow messed up. The 2nd pic is of 2 rad...

    Been looking to purchase another motorcycle for the past couple months and I’ve come across a 2006 gsxr-600 with only 10,000 miles on it. The gixxer looks like its never been dropped, stock fairings, aftermarket slip on, and a bunch of cosmetic upgrades. I negotiated with the guy selling the...
