Looking to sell my R6 as I am a looking to buy a different style bike. The R6 is the most aggressive and sporty 600cc supersport available. Its power combined with its handling makes for an absolutely stunning package. Bike was purchased by me last season; I've put about 10,000 km's on it. Oil was changed every 5000km's with Shell Synthetic oil. Only Shell Ethanol free 91 gas was used. Chain was also lubed every 1000 km's. I've also just installed a brand new Dunlop Q3 rear tire that has about 500km's on it. Exhaust system has been heavily modified. It is now essentially a straight piped system (removed cat box and honeycombs in headers) It has the Yoshimura R55 muffler. Bike is loud but not annoyingly so; it's a nice volume at idle but absolutely screams when you open it up. The stock air filter has had its restrictor removed for increased air flow due to the full exhaust system. I've also taken apart the headlights and added some LED DRL strips which also function as turn signals. I have a switch installed to switch between the LED strips and headlights. (LED strips look cool but provide 0 long range illumination) The ECU has also been professionally flashed for this new exhaust system (similar to a fuel controller however MUCH more customizable) Along with the proper fuel map being loaded for the different intake/exhaust, the ECU flash also changed the following: (notice this can NOT be done by a fuel controller; only an ECU flash can do this)
#1. Unlocks the "rider safety" limiters in the ECU (YCC-T Throttle Restriction). Did you know that the R6 restricts you to 60% throttle under 10000rpm even if you've got the throttle wide open? Under 9000rpm at 80% throttle it only gives 60% as well. It doesn't matter how far you twist it, you're only getting 60% throttle up to 10k RPM! Removed the limiters so how far you twist the grip = how much throttle the bike will give you. Everyone complains the R6 is weak in the bottom end. This is the reason why; removing this restriction allows the R6 to pull HARD even at lower rpm.
#2. Ignition Timing/Advance - Increase the ignition timing for more power. +4 degrees is safe on 91 pump gas. Boosts the power down low more so
#3. Raise Rev Limiter - Make USABLE power for another 500RPM, a stock 08+ R6 starts to lose massive power over 13000RPM (rev limit 16000) but after the flash makes monster power (+10HP over stock) right to 16500RPM.
#4 Staggered Rev Limiter- If hit rev limit, instead of cutting ignition to all 4 cylinders at once, it cuts 2 first, then the other 0.5 seconds later. This ensures that if you hit the rev limit, it will not nose-dive the bike and give a violent jerk as power is more gradually cut off.
#5 Raised idle- Raising from 1250RPM to 1400RPM makes a huge difference. Bike charges better and oil pressure is at an optimal level.
#6. Adjust cooling fan kick on/off ranges. The R6 is known to be a very hot bike when riding around town. Fans now come on at 96 degrees instead of 102. As a result, the temperature never rises above 100. Keeps the bike and you cooler.
#7. ECU based Quick Shifter (AVAILABLE) Use any Power Commander style quick shifter hardware directly with the ECU, no power commander required! ECU quick shifting is way better, it's PER GEAR with adjustable delay for each gear, minimum RPM activation, etc. If you have a quick shifter you wish to implement, let me know and we can make it happen.
#8. Disable EXUP code for removal of EXUP servo control motor and associated cables. (No longer needed as only the stock exhaust uses those) I will include the EXUP hardware if you want to go back to stock exhaust for whatever reason.
#9 Retarded engine braking- for emissions testing, the R6 cuts off injectors when you let off the throttle which gives the infamous R6 throttle "on-off" feeling. This emissions feature is removed (since no E-Test for bikes in Ontario anyway) which allows the bike to be MUCH more smooth when letting of the throttle.
#10 Disable AIS pump (OPTIONAL) I left this one as I enjoy the pops and flames I get when I get off the gas. Looks wicked at night to be shooting out 10 inch flames! If you don’t like the pops/flames you can disable the AIS pump which completely eliminates the pops and flames. (equivalent to smog block-off plates)
All these modifications provided a HUGE performance increase to the bike. It easily keeps up to a GSXR 750 with a full Akrapovic exhaust and tune. I STRONGLY recommend against buying this bike as your first; the R6 (especially with this tune) is very unforgiving. Bike was well cared for and in good condition. Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any additional pictures or information. Test rides are available to serious buyers only. Price is also fairly firm considering the work that has been put into this bike; I'm also not looking for any trades. Thanks for looking!
