There is just so much distance your arms have to cover while riding the 07-08 R6, just looking at one gives you an idea how bad it could be for street riding.
But, awesome pictures shatak, need i say keep dem' coming!

The red Honda is a CB400 SF (not sure if it's a Project Big 1 edition), typically those came in the patent yellow color scheme.
Lovely bike to have endless fun on without the worry of hurting yourself with too much power. It outputs just about enough (53bhp) to have a LOTTTTTT of fun, lot of torque across all gear changes, smooth engine, LOUDDDDDD exhaust specially with an Akrapovic on, easy to ride in daily traffic.

That's the one I am talking about, Manish.
I saw the yellow bike once, when I was driving to the office.
Thought of asking the rider to swap for the Swift but he sped away from me

That has to be a Project Big 1 edition!! Awesome bike, & people who own those are total die hard fans of the CB400. Go for a Vtec version if you planning on buying one, smooth & uninterrupted power delivery, higher BHP i think, at 57bhp output.

At first I do experience such pain, but in order to avoid such pain you have to tuck in your leg to the tank and relax your arm and if you started to feel tired then rest your elbow on your knee when on the straight thus not putting your body weight on your arm and wrist. Again I've experience this on my first ride using the R6 but when you're used to it and when you learned the technique then thw fun starts. I'm 5'6 and I can't put my two feet on ground unless I tiptoe but as the old saying goes practice makes perfect

Yes Super Four PB1 or the VTEC version are a great standard bike a 400cc bike with a loud mouth.


Here's a pic when I changed the broken headlight assembly and right front cowling (noticed the 1st pic, taped was used to cover the right headlight of the bike).

What happened was a bicycle hit the side of the R6 and luckily that was the only damage (headlight and the right cowling), other than that no other damage on the bike. But it still cost me a fotrtune to get the replacement part.

What happened was a bicycle crashed on the bike's side and that caused the damage luckily no serious injury to the rider but it still cost me a fortune getting the replacement parts.

I'm guessing you're in the Philippines. Where did you get the OEM parts from and how long did it take?

Yeah your guess is right, Philippines. Well regarding the OEM parts there are lots of importer/supplier of SBK out here but the price is somewhat higher compared to the US. What I normally do is online shopping (ebay, or official distributor), because even if you add the tax and shipping cost from the actual retail price it is still a few dollar lower than the one from the local supplier. The only set back is you'll have to wait for 2-3 weeks depending on the shipping option.
