    Re: The R6 Fork

    Did you notice that yamaha used the same bearing and spacer on like most every bike they made from 1995 to 2011? A bit of an exaggeration but it would be a lot of bikes. That leaves the collar to be the variable in the mix which is unique to FZ6 and FZ1.

    Without having the R6 collars and actual fork spacing it seems you must rely on the static values while free hanging which could lead to considerable error.
    Perhaps take the springs out and compress the forks completely may reduce some error but that's still a stretch.

    JM2C but when mine is assembled it is pretty much gapless and does not bind with springs out. All fasteners do their intended function and the calipers are centered over the rotor. IMO there is not much to improve on that a street bike rider will benefit from.

    Good luck!

    Re: The R6 Fork

    Does anyone know which fork oil I should be using? There are a couple of options and I'm just not sure. Any help is appreciated!
