I'm a noob. This past season was my first. Clocked 13,000 Km's though, which I don't think is too bad.






Gotta pull em up higher!! I was just learning 2nd gear standups when my 2nd gear went to crap. The dogs are worn down and the gear slips in and out whenever I was trying standups. I could get them up but it was sketchy having the transmission slip every couple seconds.

I'm doing a tranny rebuild over the off season and doing a sprocket conversion. (Those pics are with stock gearing, I found the R6 to wheelie pretty nicely stock... I'll bet new sprockets are going to feel awesome)

Looking forward to learning tons more and getting better. I think this bike will be limiting me though since I'm afraid to put it down, so I haven't been trying anything to crazy. Once I get enough money, I'd love to invest into a stunt bike.

I love watching all you guys, you're awesome. Keep it up. Maybe I'll be able to make it out to one of your sessions and watch and learn from those with much more experience! :rockon

that tranny is notoriously problematic.. if you can build one yourself, go for it.. if you have to pay someone to do it.. it will be $$$ .. might be better to buy an r6 motor.. but then again you run the risk of the tranny being a piece

talk to superdave at 5th gear.. nobody knows more about that model r6 for stunting than him

Yeah thanks for the advice man.

I was doing some research, and actually the 2nd gen trannies drop in (for the most part) right into the 1st gen motor.

There's some cheap ones available online, or I may try to get some salvaged locally. Drop in the new gears and forks and should be on my way.

I may talk to superdave if I need parts or help! appreciate it.

You're wheelies are lookin' good Ty :thumbup

I suggest screw the time and money fixing 2nd gear and just put a dishplate sprocket for a couple hundred and use 3rd...coincidentally 5thgear has a 62 tooth sprocket in stock that I ordered before my r6 got jacked.

There are a ton of people around here who will vouch for Brad. Tons of parts in stock and a great guy to deal with.

Can't wait to get home and fix the 600. Zap straps are so last year!
