Hi guys

Remember GREAT Britain . . before the days of health & safety, now its just Britain ;o)

Anyway Just a quick line to say hi from one of the new newbies.

I ride the grandad of R6s an FZR600 1989 3HE model but with a few mods . .

Braided lines front and rear
Modified plastics
JMC swinger
4" rear
polished wheels
Rear lights to LEDs
Polished alloy all round

I have just done a rear suspension swap to a 2007 R6 rear shock but am struggling at this point with some of the settings. I have a a quick look at the suspension forum but cant see a ref to the settings for the 07+ shock with the lower clicker instead of pinch wheel.

I will be posting some bits on there no doubt

Cheers for now chaps
btw I was a regular poster on the FZRArchives site if anyone has come from there.

Green Bay Packers . . . . . :nocontrol

Its not that we are superior on our side of the pond but Green Bay Packers what do they make before they pack it up? :lmao

re Rubber
I have only done the rear wheel swap to the 4" rim from the stock 3 1/2" rim on the 89 model. Its still on an 18" outer. The skinny tyres work well with the heavy frame tho, they allow it to drop into the bends a tad quicker & come back up the same.

On the twisties I can hold my own against a lot of newer bikes including the odd R6 not in skilled hands. Its on the straight that my bhp lets me down. not dyno'd but I guess sub 80bhp so its :sleeping on the straights with a top out at about 120 on the clock
