Nope not just R1's..I have an 01' R6 and the forks are off set by about 1". It's pretty noticeable if you look dead on from the front @ ur forks or just measure from the bottom of each leg to the ground and u shall find out if they are off set or not. Ohh yeah im also waiting on my front & rear stands from Handy :mrgreen:

Just got this off of the SportRider website. While reduced, I think there is still an offset. I'm going to buy the R6 customized stands.

SportRider:
While wheelbase remains a quick-turning 1380mm, fork offset has been reduced 5mm, to 35mm, for lighter-feeling, more communicative steering. Functional and stylistic design aspects were considered in unison. That means the new frame looks as radical, and beautiful, as it feels.

Thanks for the good find on the stands. I hope they're sturdy.
