Yo. I happen to have bought a 2005 R6... but I have no idea whether to distinguish it between a regular R6 or an R6s. The stock decals are gone, and the pipe was pulled off of another bike and chopped up to make this one. So, basically I was wondering if there is a noticeable visual difference between the 05 R6 and R6s. Help? Pictures?


:dunce:

heh, no

2005 there was no r6s. 2006, 7 and 8 they made the r6s which is basically the same body style as your 2005 r6. the 06-08 r6 has a new body style and is "faster" then the r6s.

Uh, I purchased the service manual for the damn thing and it says on the cover:

2005 R6
2005 R6s


I think there was one. But the damn book doesnt help me any. I think i'm mechanically retarded sometimes. :screwy

Yep. Book says there's an 's' for 05. So, should I just break down and check engine codes, then come back for some tech head reading this to look up and tell me what kind of bike I have? lmao

pretty sure r6s model didnt start till 2006. the 06-current r6s model is basically a 05 r6 with 04 forks

plus it never came in black- just candy red and blue

i would def say its an regular r6 '05

Alright. It's just an R6. I was just out lookin at it, and the book does say there was an 's' in 05. Do service manuals lie?
