UPDATE: Bike has been sold.

I’m selling my well maintained 2006 Yamaha R6. $6000 or best offer. I love my bike and I hope you will as well.

Photo gallery of the bike.

Meticulous record of maintenance. I have all receipts.
  • 11XXX miles (on a well maintained bike this is nothing). The bike won’t need serious maintenance for another 7,000 miles, which will be the replacement of spark plugs. These bikes are remarkably gentle on the wallet.
  • Turn key, needs no work
  • Motodynamics Integrated Taillight
  • Shogun Sliders
  • Fender Eliminator
  • Comes with Joe Rocket Tank Bag, Fieldsheer Expandable Saddlebags, Joe Rocket Tail Bag, and a Bulldog rear stand
  • Comes with two extra sets of super grippy Pirelli Supercorsa III tires. These were tires that were raced on but retain several thousand road miles and have awesome handling. Each set runs about $450 new. In my opinion this is the best way to get tires.
  • Have riding gear in brand new shape
    • Joe Rocket Leather Jacket (Size 44)
    • Alpinestars Jacket (size small)
    • Fieldsheer Leather Track Pants (size 32)
    • Dainese Hellfire Gloves (size medium)
    • Alpinestars SMX-5 boots (size 43)
    • Scorpion EXO-1000 Helmet (size medium)
    • Alpinestars Back Protector

This is a turnkey setup.

I am the owner of R6Blog.com which is a site dedicated to the ownership and operation of the Yamaha R6. I am deeply passionate about motorcycles and it breaks my heart to sell my bike. I’ll get another one once I’m done with school. Honestly, I’d rather sell one of my eyes than my beloved bike but I don’t know who would buy the eye.

Also, if someone is interested in taking my place as writer for informational Yamaha R6 articles please contact me. I don’t want to see all the hard work here go to waste simply because I sell my bike.

You can contact me at (208) 449-1693 or email at tjkastning@gmail.com. My name is TJ.

You’d be crazy not to. As of me writing this there has only been 17 entries.

This is Dean’s R6. Its a 99 which he bought last year. Dean did all the work himself except the wheels.

Here’s a list of mods, perhaps you can find some inspiration for your own bike.

Fitted a Micron exhaust.
Blue levers, foot pegs and crash mushrooms.
Blue Yamaha Hand Grips.
Demon Eyes.
New tail tidy with integrated rear indicators.
New rear hugger.
Full respray in Bayside Blue.
New color coded Stickers made to match the wheels and mudguards.

“I did all this work after I dropped the bike coming off a roundabout on a bike run. I was lucky not to do any serious damage, just broken levers and some slight scratches. Rather then just touch up the scratches in the original blue I convinced my panel beater to respray the whole bike a new color. I thought it was a great idea and so did he once it was done. Needless to say I had to do all the preparation work. And getting stickers off an R6 is a nightmare of a job!!

It is the only R6 likes this I have ever seen in Ireland and it turns a lot of heads wherever it goes and people take a LOT of pictures of it! I absolutely love my R6!

Thank you for looking and great work with the facebook page.

Dean, from Ireland.”

Dean, we love your bike! Keep up the good work!

Along with a passion for motorcycles I also love photography. I have compiled a few of my favorite photos of my bike, slapped the site logo on it, and ordained it WALLPAPER!

Click on the inordinately sized thumbnails to see the full sized version.

If you have some Yamaha R6 photos you think are awesome and the world needs as wallpaper send it to me in email at admin@r6blog.com. If anything I love looking at great pictures. Perhaps we will have a photo competition… Hmmm…
