I have a 2000 R6, and lately I've been having trouble bringing up the front. So, I was thinking about doing a sprocket change. Can anyone provice me with advice as to what I should do?

Im in the same boat, but if you do a search youll frind a lot of talk about this. But most people go down 1 in the front and up 2 teeth in the back making it 15/50 setup. Sprocket Specialist is a good comapny also and with the 15/50 setup you can save your stock chain.

if you have trouble bringing the front wheel up on a stock R6, you don't need a new sprocket...you are doing it wrong.

i agree with hasamb, but if u want to make it easier, u can change the sprocket. but if your going to change em, u might as well change the chain to a 520 chain and save some weight and put more power to the ground. and defenitly get your stuff from whitebuffaloracing, they have the best prices i have found. but one thing is dont order online, call up mike and talk to him to have u get setup right. :cheers

I have heard that they do come up while stock, but lately it won't. Now, I've been taking my bike to a local Yamaha dealership for service...could they be doing something to it, causing it to lose power??

I've been trying to do clutch wheelies in the 10+ rpm range, and it's not consistant. Sometimes it comes up, sometimes it doesn't.

I think it's just time for an R1.

If you cant do it on an r6, you wont be able to do it on an r1. After you snap the clutch out, make sure you are not letting off the throttle. It is key to keep on the gas HARD for the instant the clutch is out.

pull in the clutch
whack open the throttle
let the clutch snap out while keeping the throttle open
hold on!!!!

THEN let off the throttle just enough to keep you from looping

If this doesnt work, then re-read what I just wrote because this WILL work on a stock r6, and it WILL come up fast!!!!!!

be careful

ps. Doing wheelies will cause you to crash eventually.

Ok! Guess practice makes perfect. I've been trying it in both 1st and 2nd.

Another question......

I have a faring screw, the one to the frame, that appears to be stuck. I don't have any air tools, any suggestions? I'm trying to change the turn signals. I have one done, but can't get the last screw out.
