    It's been a long while since I did the research on the R6 shock, but the question was asked about any differences between the different colour springs - IIRC it was red versus yellow. The response came back that there is no difference between the spring colours - except for the actual colour

    Ok guys haven't made a lot of progress lately but I am in need of bits of fairing. I have given up trying to find a 3ln1 front fairing. but if anybody has a broken 3ln3 front they want to part with so i can salvage part to plastic weld to mine that would be awesome. pics are of the current piece i am trying to fix for reference to the bits I need. 20180513_163225.jpg 20180513_163219.jpg

    Depending on which brand you go for i would get sintered disc pad's if you have the option, much better braking

    I have 101 of those front cowlings and they are all broken in the same places ... especially the top ends back from the mirrors

    That would be awesome. the bottom part is the most important. I can probably make the top pieces.

    Can you post which ones you got so we can avoid them as I am about to go in search of a pair for the front and am considering getting a full set of LED blinkers instead

    Is it the smoke tinted lenses clamping the light output significantly?
