Default My ride ('07 YZF R6)

Hey guys just want to show my ride....I knew 1000cc up is prefered by many but I love this baby...it roar.

All stock parts (brakeline, sprocket, chain, Brake pads and Pipe.






Changes have been made (Stock pipe was change to a much better GYTR slip on pipe)


Steel Braide Brake line (HEL) have been installed for both front and rear (including the brake pad from stock to EBC Sintered pads) which makes the braking power of the bike to a more smoother and all weather.


the sprocket have been upgraded from the stock (16-45 tooth) to AFAM sprocket kit (15-47 tooth) and from 525 chain to 520 (thinner but lighter chain) which makes the bike more nimble especially coming out from the curve.


This is the slip on Pipe a GYTR Carbon fiber much lighter than the stock pipe.


This how it looks when I first acquired the bike.


Just came out from the dealer....


Got to remove the rear fender ASAP.


thanks....hope you like it..

Well, the GYTR sound would be very "scandalous" once the catalyctic converter is removed but I opted not to remove it as of this time.

I acquired the bike 25th December 2006 (that was the two of the first '07 model R6 out here)....actually I'm locate in Philippines, and plates for MC is only at the back no front plates required, it is only for cage (front and rear plates).

@GTO & VJ_mavrick thanks man...o yeah that's what our club's requirement...No gear no ride with the group...

@redeye..Thanks dude...well it cost something like equivalent to 14Tusd at that time...I just hope that Indian gov't will allow importation of 600cc.

Maybe (with mods permission) I'm gonna post some of the club's ride activities..

Again thanks for the compliment.

Ride safe guys!!!

This is also one of our scheduled ride (see previous pics)... we were also waitin' at that time and finally when everybody came up...it was around 40++ bikes from 400cc (honda super4, honda CBR400) to the mid size bikes (R6, CBR600RR, Honda F41) up to the liter bike (R1, Gixxer, Ducatis and even the Busa killa' kawasaki ZRX1200)

Sadly we haven't seen anybody using the famous Busa...I think only few are being sold out here.




By the way Sir GTO thanks for accommodating my post....

Same out here in Manila traffic is bad as well especially weekdays..that's the main reason why we organize a group ride (various motorcycle Clubs do the same) in the weekend. Aside from that we normally plan the rides to be outside the city proper either going to the north or south of Manila were traffic is less and you have to through Expressways adding to that some roads are getting better now.

We even envy you guys out there coz you can travel from the city to the outskirt or other state by just pressing the throttle without hesitate of transporting the bike by boat or plane..
