It鈥檚 a shame Yamaha cheats out on such an important part of the bike. Check out the speed bleeders as well they are amazing!

You get a chance to bed in your pads and feel em out?
I鈥檓 curious to hear your thoughts
So I am used to the EPFA line on my R6.

I will say that the FA line is a good improvement but not where I am used to or want it to be. I like a nice bite at the end and I am not getting it even after about 750 miles with the new pads. Definitely better than the stock pads that were as smooth a porcelain. It was pathetic.

I will probably be switching to the EPFA's soon.

Winter Mods? I actually got rid of the RS11's and swapped for the Q3+s. Those are my go to tire and wasn't feeling the Bridgestones.

That chain looks a bit on the tight side.
Yes thank you I set it to the correct spec. Its a new chain so it keeps stretching.
