    R6 Calipers

    IDK. I didn't look into much once I saw what it was going to cost.

    R6 Calipers

    I thought about it - the front brakes on my 2005 R6 really spoiled me. I found that the 03-04 R6 or 06-09 R6S used the same size rotors and the calipers should bolt right on the FZ6R. To do it right, you'd also need the R6 master cylinder. I decided against doing it when I figured out the cost...

    Just Bought a FZ6R with a 2 Brother pipe and it runs like a pig. HELP !

    One other thing, it's probably still got the original tires on it. If I were you, I'd replace them, no matter how much tread they have. 10+ year-old tires are not something you want to ride on for very long.

    Just Bought a FZ6R with a 2 Brother pipe and it runs like a pig. HELP !

    OP, don't throw a bunch of money at your bike until you've narrowed down the potential problem.

    Question Dash LED blown

    The Haynes manual has instructions with pictures on how to remove the instrument cluster. Unfortunately, it also states that the only way to replace failed LEDs is to replace the whole cluster.

    That's pretty much the only option if you want new. Sometimes the seat cowl Yamaha used to sell will show up on Ebay.

    Bobski's windscreen comparisons

    Try a blow dryer and some WD-40 to remove the sticker. It should get it all off without much effort.
