    Hello, bought a 05 r6 that had been laid down. I need new forks because they are bent. My question is what years will fit my 05, i got inverted forks. I read somewhere that 06/07 will not fit because thay are shorter ? And that 08-16 will be a direct swap. Will my front wheel (05) and calipers...

    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...

    rode it over to my ma's house, always starts perfect, every day. It rained heavy for a hour and when I went to leave it won't start. All the lights light up, fuel pump kicks in, but when I go to press the button to start it, it lights up the check engine light when I press it then goes away when...

    Hey guys need ya help. I left my motorcycle outside last night not knowing it was going to rain. Ended up being a real horrible thunder storm.

    So I got this 09 R6 off my brother in law, needs some work, issue I can’t figure out is when the bike is running, idling, it’s sounds perfect healthy, however. If you rev it up, it will stop and you can hold it right around 3k. It will not rev up any higher, to me, being a car guy as well, it...

    Hey So I have a 2016 R6 and the handlbar is rotating/spinning on the non throttle side. In the attached pic I circled to show where it is spinning to confirm it isn't just the grip. Any idea on the cause and fix? I've searched around but may not be using the correct terminology as I haven't...

    Is this a backwards thread bolt or is it just regular? I've found that it's a 36 mm that fits it after going back and forth many times to the auto parts store......any info would be appreciated thanks...

    OK so my 2003 r6 keeps shutting off. The engine dies and the lights turn off even when the key is on. I have to take the seat off and wiggle the main fuse for it to turn back on. Could it be a bad starter or an extra ground connection? Has anyone had this problem before?
