one good thing about working on it yourself, other than fun and cost savings, you get to see everything in the engine, then maybe just refresh things it needs and have a refresh engine.
I'm suprised it ran as well as it did, still waiting on the coils. Tracking says Tuesday. I also just ordered a jet kit, carb sync tool, fairing kit, and a few tools/gaskets I'll need to finish the job.Plug manufacturers actually advise against any oil, grease or anti seize on plugs. It interferes with the ground connection from the plug to the block and can interfere with fire. Same with dielectric on the coils. Manufacturers advise against it.
Glad you got your manual bud and glad you put some tools together. I've had tools stolen here and there and it sucks. I can't abide thieves in general, but the kind of thief that would steal a man's livelihood? There is a special place in hell.
I think R6 is known to be a relatively pretty bullet proof on reliability thus why so popular. I owned several Ducati and they were very very sensitive.I'm suprised it ran as well as it did, still waiting on the coils. Tracking says Tuesday.

I've seen plug manufacturers advise against it, but after taking the old NGK coils out and seeing how they look, I think a little anti seize is a good idea lol I don't trust the coating especially when used in an aluminum engine. Dielectric grease will keep moisture out, my bike doesn't have the oem plastic cover that goes over the coils for some reason. Can't hurt to use a little bit. Getting the coils out was a pain in the ass! With a little grease it won't be so hard next time.
