    FZ6R Rear seat Cowl

    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.

    Yes, it fits all model years. I have one on my 2013 and love it.

    Listing of common torque specs for FZ6R

    According to the Haynes manual, the spec is 80 Nm which converts to roughly 59 ft-lbs. So 57 ft-lbs is probably correct.

    First came Suzuki...

    Yamaha is competing in that arena - it's called the MT-07. The FZ6R was last offered as a 2017 model. It's not in the lineup anymore.

    How many miles on your FZ6R?

    These Yamaha's are bulletproof. There was a 2009 FZ6R on the local craigslist with 230,000 miles on it - it looked a bit ragged, but supposedly still ran fine. I know of a 2002 R1 with 89,000 miles on it and it still runs like a champ.

    Bike decelerates with and without engine light on

    That's sounds more like an electrical issue than a mechanical one. Maybe a loose/broken/dirty connector.

    Bike won't start

    Before you spring for a new battery have the old one checked out, it may still be good. Definitely get yourself a smart charger, like a Battery Tender. A properly maintained battery can last a long time, the last one in my R6 lasted 9 years. Not knowing how much of a charge the original owner...

    When to Realistically Perform Valve Adjustment?

    These engines are pretty much bulletproof. The valve inspection spec is every 26,600 miles and it really doesn't need done before that. 10k miles is nothing, don't waste your time doing a valve inspection now. Just go ride.

    Clutch level too far out

    I run Pazzo Racing adjustable levers on my R6 - a standard length on the clutch side and a shorty for the front brake. That combination works great for me and I plan on installing a similar setup on my FZ6R.

    Highbeam doesnot work

    Replace the bulb. The high beam is probably burned out, especially if you ride with your high beam on during the day.

    fz6r stock tires...

    OP, instead of worrying about how low you can get in a corner, you should concentrate on getting through the corner smooth and efficient. As you gain experience your lean angles will increase. That being said, please save knee dragging for track days. Regarding tires, the stock tires are more...
