Hello everyone. My name is Sam and i am new to this forum. I am however familiar with the whoel forum process do to the fact that i am heavy into VW's and i am on almost every vw forum. Anyway, i just bought a 2008 yamaha r6 in black. I got it for 8500 total, tags, everything. I have not been on a bike in about 2 years. I am just looking to get back into the bike scene and am excited about meeting some new people. I pick the bike up this friday and will post some pics. Anyone know any good aftermarket parts sites i can check out for my new bike.

Welcome Sam. That's a great price on an 08. I like to go to http://www.tobefast.com or http://www.motomummy.com. Great sponsors.
Thanks man. Well, i had the 2006 50th anniversary edition r6, the yellow and black paint scheme. I had a bad wreck with it do to a tractor trailer and it made me very nervous. For the past 2 years i have been saving for another bike just incase i ever wanted to ride again. Well, i went out yesterday just to look at some bikes with no intentions on buying one lol. The same guy that sold me my 50th was still working at the shop and i had told him that i had been saving for the past 2 years and i had like 9 grand. He gave me an excellent deal, (at least i think it was) on the 2008 r6. So i was immediately locked in and told him i would take it.

OK its been awhile since i have been here lol i bought a house a lot of work, working a lot finished the build on the car and getting ready to re-build it again.

I have the two brothers racing exhaust like shown in the pics above i also have the hotbodies tail delet:



I also sprayed my windscreen black:


So, about a week ago i cracked my oil casing on the R6. I took the fearing off and unbolted the casing. My question is will a new casing come with that wire OR do i have to take the wire out of the casing? I already disconnected the wire from the plug. If i use that same wire, do i basically have to just tear the oil casing apart on the inside to get to that wire?





As you can see i already disconnected the plug, but not enough room to pull through......



The wire being the one that is connected to the oil casing....

ive seen the wire dis-connected when a different casing was placed once, to avoid any electric hazard. but not sure.
