    Hey people, im buying new tires this month for my Yamaha r6 2007. Any suggestions what the best brand/type would be? I dont ride in the rain and mostly locally some twisty rides here and there, not too worried about the price. Planning on getting a 190 for rear and stock 120 for front. What have you all used?

    Leakage is one. The other consideration is tightening torque. If you are confident that you are not over tightening, then you are golden. Just remember aluminum alloy has fatigue life, and fatigue life drop dramatically when stressed beyond a certain threshold. It is easier to torque down correctly with a new washer.

    I know I replace them... The crush washers on the drz aren't like the ones on sport bikes. these are more like steel washers not aluminum washers. only replace them ever 2-3 oil changes.

    I was referring to the drain plug hole material (ie. aluminum alloy oil pan drain plug hole). In other words, stripping would be a possibility in the future even if it was not overtightened by a whole lot. That's is what fatigue life is about.

    If you are careful, it does not have to be an issue. I reuse crush washers. However, I am careful that I don't over-tighten. Every 2 or 3 oil changes sounds reasonable to me. Experience will be an asset here.

    Great question to ask in the thread titled the "BIG OIL THREAD".

    No zx14 listed? Too bad, I would love to have "clearly the best oil filter available" and is "clearly superior to anything else on the market" Lol...its so "clear" to me now
