    If you were to want a hand doing the physical part of this I am sure that myself and any number of others on this forum or other forums you are a member of would be more than willing to assist. Say the word.

    Stop spending money on basket case projects and you could probably buy a brand new bike.
    But yes, I know you love the basket cases.

    Dropping a motor is actually pretty easy. Regardless of the bike.

    It seems intimidating at first if you've never taken the time to do it.

    Just remember to disconnect every wire, hose, etc before you drop the motor. Ask me how I know.

    Re: 2017 LRRS goals

    The technical aspects don't bother me, where I'm coming up short is in the actual lifting of the hot tub.

    I have a personal thing where if I can't do it myself, I draw the line there and try to arrange my projects around that limit. I've been burned by two many shops/etc over the years, I don't always have a handy second set of lifting legs on standby, etc so the path to least disappointment is to be able to do it all myself. So the R6 crossing that threshold has kinda been a gut punch. It's not that big an issue, there are multiple paths around it, but again, crossing that line the way it did hurt physically. I'm a middle aged 12 year old who just got told that not only is Santa not real, but the house will no longer be celebrating Christmas or any other event that involves presents. It's tantrum time damn it.

    Re: 2017 LRRS goals

    I did a frame swap on a cbr600rr by myself, without lifting the motor. I made a crude wooden cradle to support the motor on my bike lift while everything else came off. The frame was pretty light, totally stripped. The whole project was completed over a weekend working probably 3 hours each on saturday and sunday. Worked perfect afterwards, except i discovered at njmp that i had forgotten to connect one plug (rectifier, maybe?) so the battery wasnt charging. After connecting that, all was good

    Edit: So my point is, you could maybe use a similar technique (if possible on an r6) to get at the motor without lifting the motor, and you wouldn't have to strip as much off the frame as I did...like the entire front end and rear suspension, for example

    Buy one of those scissor lift platform jacks. basically a small 6x14 inch square platform that goes up and down traveling at least 12 inches in height. Just trying to offer options.

    Mine wasn't anything on the harness persay, it was my 80 dollar aftermarket water temp sensor wire that got caught on something, not a good day at all.

    YCRS is behind most every guy standing on the MotoAmerica podiums.

    Are you going to race the new toy this year or is she a trackday mule?

    I have a few racing plans this year, but none involve the R6... yet.

    R6's suck on the track for racing applications.

    I'd stay away.

    You're looking good out there! I couldn't catch back up with you when you shut the door on me after dicing it up for a few laps.

    Ouch! Good luck with the healing, hope to see you up there next week, not sure about the riding though.

    You too ducman, you don't have to be racing to hang out.
