Talking My New 06 R6S....

Finally got the battery issue resolved with my bike - put in a new OEM batt this morning.

Bikes been sitten since last August and only has 230 miles, got the sucker with frame sliders, two brothers pipe and scorpio alarm for 6k

It was dropped though and has a knick on the left frame slider bout it ..

Rode her home - she was sweeeeet

Should I get an oil change now @ 230 miles since she's been sitten for 8 months? or wait till scheduled 600 mile maintenance?

Also - What should I NOT be doing?? since it's still in engine break in period . I did take her to about 70 on the expressway today, no crazy revs though..

I was only able to get one picture of her this morning with my camera phone - here she is... I'll get some better pictures up tommorrow after I clean her up.

Ride it like ya fuckin stole it - Change the oil at 1500 miles

Change it at 600. From what i've read/been told, you are supposed to break in the bike the way you intend to ride it. Looks nice Fish, hoepfully we wake up aerly enough to ride tomorrow.

Change the oil now. You are supposed to change it every year of more often anyway. Especially if it was sitting since last august. Don't waste your money on expensive oil for this first change, anything decent will do. Then put in good oil after the break in is complete.

Why change oil now - it changes it properties over the winter and turns to shit, not to mention the water that most likely accumulated in it. I doubt the bike was winterized properly,

Nice bike!

What's the difference between a R6 and an R6S? This is the first I've heard of an S model.

It's the same bike as the 03-05.. well different than the 05.. but 03 04 model. The R6 is a totally different bike than the R6s

Change it now and the filter. Do not put synthetic oil in it. Change it again and 600. then again around 1500. Then use synthetic.

The S model was kept around because Yamaha had left over parts from the 03-05 generation. The S model has an 04 frame and parts. It does not have inverted forks or 310mm brakes like the 05. However, it does contain the 05 motor which produced a bit more power. It also comes with a 60series tire up front instead of a 70 like the 05 model.
