I decided to cruise through CL and stumbled across this little gem!
Land vehicle Vehicle Motorcycle Car Auto part


Now before anyone gets on the soapbox, I know all about wrecked machines, what to look for and what to run from:)

I just gotta convince the little lady that this is a good investment:D(which could be tough with the holidays coming)....but for a mere $500! It's worth more than that in parts!

Durable bikes, has steel frame so anything is possible. My 22yr old son has my old '94 yzf I built a few years back and he hasn't destroyed it yet as hard as he tries.

FI? I don't think so. I'm pretty sure they stayed carbed. R1 and r6 didn't even go FI until 02

Hmmm, learned something there, I thought they stayed with the steel frames. I am pretty sure they all was carbed though, tried to make a set from a '01 work without ram air and gave up.

Straight off of Wiki....


The YZF-R6 has been revised several times since its introduction. Starting with the 2003 model, the R6 became fuel-injected. The 2006 model year was a significant upgrade with a new engine management system featuring the YCC-T ride by wire throttle and a multi-plate slipper clutch.[3] The 2008 model incorporated the YCC-I variable-length intake system to optimize power at high engine rpm and an improved Deltabox frame design.[4]

Not sure if anyone put together the fact it is in impound and there is TWO damaged helmets that match sitting with the bike. Somebody and their girlfriend had a really bad end to a ride. :(






I think I saw one of those turbocharged recently....

Being local to a short road course that really favors the smaller bikes I've been hearing all my riding years about the FZR400 with FZR600 suspension being the best it gets. Then came the formula you are talking about mixing R1 and R6 parts into it. Seems you just can't go wrong with an inline four Yamaha sportbike when it comes to year range as it is all easily upgraded and updated. :)
