2000 Yamaha R6 impressions

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by javaman, Nov 2, 2015.

  1. Coming from 10+ years on 2000 ZX6R here is my impression on my "new" R6:

    - Feels very light, although weighing the same on paper with the Ninja
    - Feels short and compact, almost like a toy
    - Cheap. Nearly half the price of those new 300s
    - Great suspension. Fully adjustable
    - Amazing brakes. Practically the same one used in R1!
    - Timeless looks. You could argue they look better than 2006+ models

    A complaint would be the quality of the transmission. They clunk and clunk ... Also the somewhat cramped leg position (footpegs too high).
