    Recently bought a 2004 r6 and found that the previous owner did a -1/+2 sprocket swap and 520 conversion, just wondering what the top speed of the bike is with this gearing?

    I have a 2006 R6S. I don't really like the tail much since it a last gen style but I do like the "bee" style tail of the 06 R6. Has anyone swapped out the tails? I'm guessing the dimensions of the subframes would be off by a few millimeters. I don't really want to spend a couple hundo on an R6...

    Hey, since a few weeks I have the following problem with my R6 RJ15 which has 18000 km: After a cold start the bike has hardly any power, stutters extremely and sounds like it is choking. Wenn i give it gas several times or let it warm up a bit longer, it runs normal again. I thought it might...

  9. Exhaust and fuel delivery
    Hi, I want to ask if it is bad for motorcycle (mine 2001 R6) to make short mount for exhaust with short mid pipe. Like at the photos below. I've got G.P.R. exhaust but I want to mount it just below break set. I've got a professional guy who make full exhausts who could make this short mid pipe...

    Hi all, Can you get pillion seat covers or blanks for the 5EB? To clarify, I mean remove the pillion seat and clip on a piece of plastic or fibreglass instead, so it looks like there’s no seat (as available on most modern sports bikes). Can’t seem to find any for the 5EB online? Cheers

  16. Exhaust and fuel delivery
    What’s going on everyone, I’m hoping I can get some advice on my testing that I’ve done to see if I’m missing something. My bike has 2,400 miles on it. This spring I brought it out of storage and had an issue where it was running really rough at idle, when throttling up it ran much better. A few...

    As the title indicates, the bike does not pull in gear - at all. I can put it in gear and it sounds just fine and feels right, but when i let go of the clutch nothing happens. However when i start to roll it or let it roll by itself, in gear or not, it makes a weird noise, probably some broken...
