Hi guys, been looking on this forum for a while as I've just bought myself an R6. I live near Manchester in England but my bike is a U.S. import :) Better colors then UK bikes!

Anyway just thought i'd show you all a pic:





It's tucked away for winter now, done 300 miles on it so far though and love it! Quite a few extras already on it, however I've just ordered:

Gilles Gold rearsets
Carbon Front mudgaurd to match the rest
Mirror block off plates
Renthal sprockets and gold chain.

I'l update in the spring when I get all this kit on, I'l probably have one or two other carbon bits on too.

Anyway love reading the site and look forward to contributing.

Cheers,

Adam

Thanks guys. The exhaust is by "Carbon Can Co" it sounds louder than stock but don't think there are any performance gains - it's just the same as my friends R6 with stock exhaust performance wise. I think it looks better than standard but other than that I can't reaqlly see the point. It was on the bike when I got it though so not complaining :)



It matches all the other carbon stuff anyway.

Hello and welcome:wave

You mention that we have better color schemes...I think we all think the euro models have better color schemes :lmao

Aside from all of that, congrats on the ride, be safe out there and have fun:cheers

I think it's probably just a slip on but to be honest I really don't know as I don't know what the standard system was like so can't check, I should have asked when I bought it but oh well.

Just orderd some CRG arrow bar end mirrors too after reading a review on here. Very expensive for what they are so I hope they're worth it, just didn't want to put cheap looking mirrors on and let the rest of the bike down... should look nice and stealthy now :)
