I've been riding for nearly 20 years (started at age 5). Bought my first street bike 4 years ago (ninja 500). Sold it in a year and replaced it with a '95 zx7. Also picked up an '03 SV650 last spring for my wife to ride with me. This weekend I added an '09 R6 to my collection. I'm very pleased with it so far, this thing feels light as a feather compared to my 7

Here are some pictures of my collection:



I have a small R6 question.

Coming from a zx7, I am used to a lot of top end noise. The r6 engine is very quiet in comparison. I do hear some ticking every so often from the yamaha, it is quiet and nothing like the clatter of the zx7. Is this normal, or should I tear into it and check out the cam chain? I haven't been around any other r6's and don't know just how quiet they should be. My bike only has 9k miles, so I don't expect it to need a cam chain yet.

Welcome! Very nice bike. Always did like the black/blue combo. Yeah, the "Yama-tick" sound... Always there, just louder on some days than others. I don't even notice it anymore.
