My story...
Hello all, the name is Bryan! I'm going to showcase my 2008 Liquid Silver Yamaha YZF-R6 to you all! I was always a (Toyota) car guy, but for whatever reason I fell in love with streetbikes back in early 2008! I finally went on July 29 of that year to Barney's of Brandon (FL) to buy a bike! I really wanted a Raven R6, but they didn't have any, but had a Liquid Silver on the showroom floor with 0 miles on her! Love at first sight! Wish I'd taken a picture of her in the showroom...



Don't I look so happy...


I didn't have a license at the time, so they delivered it to me...(8|1|08)




*First mods, Graves frame sliders & flushmounts and Umnitza 6000k HIDs (8|18|08)




*Graves fender eliminator w/o turn signal and CA smoked tail light (9|6|08)



*Graves fixed rearsets (9|22|08)




*Graves Ti exhaust, PCV and more (6|4|09)

*Year Two (7|29|10)

http://www.r6-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=122476&highlight=

Then I fell out of love with my R6 for whatever reason in late 2010 and all 2011, I don't really know why! Most likely because I had a girlfriend during that time! But, at the end of the day my R6 seems like the only loyal girl I've in my life! (non family)

2012...

The love of me and my R6 is back! :love

One of the first things I did was chanced the spark plugs and oil (4|19|12)




Shermoto "Shorty" levers (5|7|12)

I was always reading great things about these levers from some little asian in Houston, TX...Shermoto? So, I wanted to join in on the fun and ordered a set with silver adjusters










The R6 currently...

Oh yea, gotta love some Graves...



Graves WORKS radiator cap...



WTF??? I thought Graves had their own radiator guard? :banned: :eek:oh


Skip, check your email! It's sucks because I had already ordered a Cox guard from Amazon.com and had already got it, but then I found out/though that Graves had a radiator guard! So, I wasted $8 returning the Cox guard I got from Amazon.com! Also, there was no small foam pieces with my order! :curse



Now, I'm just waiting on my Samco radiator hoses in black! :popcorn: One thing though, how is black a custom color? You would think blue and red, where? :werd Wanted to order from Riders Discount, but they don't sell the hoses in black! So, I went with...RaceBikeBitzUSA

Just ordered a Shorai LFX14A2-BS12 battery for the R6! The OEM battery is toast! Can't hold a charge for more than 2 days! I keep it on my Battery Tender Jr charger when it sits!

So, I've the following to install/do in the coming weeks...

Samco radiator hoses (Black) (On order...)
Coolant flush (Engine Ice)
Cox radiator guard
Graves WORKS radiator cap
Shorai A2 battery (On order...)
Remove wheels and get them balanced
Clean and adjust chain

Next mod...Dynojet Autotune! :flex:

What's so special about the radiator cap?


Sent from my Motorcycle iPhone app
This radiator cap is designed to keep your engine from overheating by maintaining a higher pressure inside the cooling system thus increasing the boiling point of your coolant.
