Rabbit's 2017 TOR Yamaha R6 race build

Recommended Posts

Ok guys, I've had a few people ask for this over the last day so why not. I will be updating as we accomplish things...  

So over the last few years I've  been racing off and on  between coaching and playing around. After taking a Hwt Twins championship and 7th in 600 superbike novice in 2017. I've decided to take my Racing a bit more serious. I know other than WERA and CCS it wont go anywhere, but its all about the fun for me. The second it becomes  a chore or I'm not having fun it's time to stop. That said my buddy Joe and I decided that if we are going to do it... lets start fresh. I'll post here too but PLEASE check out Turn One Racing on FB  it's my friends race shop where we are doing all the work. and he is my main "Sponsor" this upcoming year.

So I present to you  Rabbit's (Jason) Turn One Racing Yamaha R6 Racebike build.

After uncrating mindless disassembly can be fun! It takes only us few hours for a complete chassis breakdown. Most of the time was spent making plans, parts list and prepping parts for sale that I will not be using.  At this stage we finalized the paint scheme and the stripped the wheels and send them off for powdercoat. After cleaning and inspection, the real fun assembly can begin.

More disassembly , both Fork seals were blown from factory which is sweet....  granted we don't care as we are installing Ohlins 25mm  but still!20171117_185947.thumb.jpg.f809a7aed8ec546acfd70fc086f7f1d4.jpg

This is awesome. I pinned it to the top so it doesn't get lost. Almost think we should move it to tech or track or maybe daily ride for better visibility.

Ballpark guess what this is going to cost?

Whatever you think would work best @Tonik,  I can tell you about what it would cost based on Retail prices but I'm not willing to discuss  my cost on parts/ labor and so on being as he is sponsoring a portion of my gig. 

 really the total cost comes down to how hard ya want to go, i'll go into more depth about parts / brand /  installation as we go but roughly

Bike is roughly $12,000 brand new
Motor work $3,000 - $4,500 depending on supersport or superbike build and the depth I will be staying superstock legal but running both SS and SBK classes

Bodywork / bolt ons (eg, rearsets, case covers, bars, levers ) $2,000

Brakes, lines, pads ABS delete $700ish

suspension $2,500

ECU flash, dyno tuning ,Translogic Quickshifter and Autoblipper $ $2,000ish

and then there are small parts, fluids,paint, powdercoat ect...

so I'd say from start  of nothing to buying a bike and going bawls deep.. $24,000 to the sky is the limit... I have a buddy with a $50,000 zx6r  just because lol..

 

some of the small details that no one will ever see but we do (and I will show) really make this bike tight and just top notch

NOW for knowledge.. this bike is going to be WAY better than I am, the things this bike will have are far more than I need, but you prepare for success and utilize as you grow. so set it up right the first time and  tweek as you go to suit you.

This will help with winter with no real build-related stuff on my calendar for this year. Maybe new fairings for the CBR but that's it.

Very cool!  Somewhat side note, are you planning on going to Jennings this winter?  Thought that happened a few times before and I'd like to think I could go.  When do you hope to have the R6 ready to race?

So top mount dampers like a GPR make it difficult to quickly get through tech or access  under the tank for maintenance. So we decided on a Ohlins  under mount damper. The ignition switch removal is necessary for clearance, obviously something that can't be don't for a street bike. Triple clamp modification is not necessary  but it sure does look nice and clean and saves the 1 gram that makes it faster than every other R6 :p . The Steering stop is something a lot of people overlook its easily broken in a crash. Graves makes this really cheap and trick piece to sold 2 problems. 1 it helps  beef up the steering stop and 2. keeps the damper from topping/bottoming when  the bars hit the ground and causing potential damage. We had to grind the frame flat for a tight fit and drill and tap the frame for mounting

Parts Added

Ohlins 68mm Damper
Graves Damper Mount
Graves Steering Stop

Better than a boat sitting at the dock and costing you the same as this build every year to keep afloat.

That's not my situation, just saying. There are worthwhile money pits and then there are boats.

Rear shock removal can be a lengthy job as you need to lift the tank and remove the top clevis. During routine service and more so during a track or race weekend,  Time is a commodity. Shaving the frame is legal in race applications and allows for the top shock mount to be removed with the clevis in place. Realigning the lower shock and linkage mounts allow for quick and easy removal. Making spring, valving and maintenance possible in a moments notice. Add a few captive nuts and shock removal literally happens in a matter of seconds.

On to Chassis assembly: We clean out the hint of grease that the factory puts on moving parts. Its seriously pathetic how little they have, it's barely noticeable.  Then we pack the bearings with high quality low friction grease. Properly assemble and torque all moving parts of the chassis, to assure proper spec and function of all moving parts. 

 

Last picture is start of assembly using stock shock as a placeholder

Race prepping is essential for fast access, ease of use and increased crash ability. Everything we do before hand is to make the everyday stuff easier.  Relocating the main harness inside the frame rail and routing the front loom inside the forks shelters and protects it from rash or slower competitors. Fixing the ram air tube to the fairing stay allows for easier bodywork mounting. Heat reflective tape helps manage heat from the engine. Captive rear caliper carrier, spacers and chamfered pads for effortless wheel changes. We cap all non utilized electrical connectors for disassembly/assembly.  
First pic is of factory harness location

      One owner, clean title in hand. Track only. Stock motor. 20,990 miles.

      The time has come for me to face the reality that getting back on the track isn't in the cards. So I'm selling my baby, a 2004 R6 that I bought brand new in September of 04 and have ridden every mile since.

      It hasn't been babied by any stretch of the imagination, but it has been obsessively maintained. Runs like the day it was new, only stronger. Routinely dyno'd at over 100hp at the wheel. From commutes, to exploring the twisties in Kentucky, to drag races and track days, this bike has always taken everything I threw at her and come back asking for more. Zero mechanical malfunctions in all the time I've owned her.

      Always used Motul 300V oil and RBF600 brake fluid, changed more often than my socks. Only the finest of distilled waters in the cooling system. Suspension only has two days on the track since it was last serviced. The paint is pockmarked from going fast, and there's a little rash on the right lower from a teensy low-side at Grattan a bunch of years ago. Otherwise, the bike has always been rubber-side up.

      Would make an excellent first track day bike, or novice racer, or endurance race machine. Fully safety-wired, never leaked a drop of anything, and always passed tech with flying colors. Comes with an absurd number of spares, Pit Bull front and rear stands, aluminum loading ramps, a rain suit, and even a service manual. You're a couple sets of fresh tires away from driving directly to the track with this thing in your trailer.

      Mods include:

      Suspension and Brakes
      Elka 3-way rear shock Stock forks with GP Suspension cartridge kit Suspension built, serviced, and tuned by Matt Carr, sprung for 190lb rider Tapered roller bearings in the headset Ohlins linear steering damper Galfer SS braided brake hoses EBC pads
      Powertrain
      Dynojet PCIII USB with custom tune Leo Vince SBK carbon and titanium exhaust Factory Pro +4 ignition advance Factory Pro Superflare velocity stacks Graves slide stops and AIS blockoff plates BMC Race filter Shorai LFX battery Custom 1/4 turn throttle mod
      Drivetrain
      DID 520 chain AFAM and DID sprockets (-1 front, +0, +1, and +2 rears with carriers) Two extra sets of wheels
      Bodywork
      Catalyst Composites bodywork with custom paint and graphics Woodcraft rearsets, case covers, frame sliders Puig clear DB windscreen Graves fairing stay Pazzo shorty levers

      Up for sale is a 2007 Suzuki SV650 that was bought from Brian "Tuna" Mullins awhile ago that is well known with WERA and AFJ, ,so he can testify to the background to this bike. I purchased it originally to build for an endurance bike with some friends but never had time to do it or finish it. This is a BILL OF SALE ONLY - TRACK ONLY, this bike is NOT street legal as it does not have a title as it originally come from an police auction

      Mileage:
      975 total miles

      Upgrades:
      pit bull 520 chain and sprocket kit, 
      pit bull spools, 
      Galfer front SS brake lines, new EBC front and rear pads, 
      GSXR steering stabilizer, 
      new fork oil, 
      pit bull speedo spacer replacement, 
      new dunlop Q2's, 
      SV Parts black rear sets (Not installed but come with it), 
      new ecu and new gsxr fuel pump
      new battery (always keep on trickle charger)

      What needs to be done:
      Tank needs to be treated, and I have provided a new KBS Cycle tank sealer kit
      stock bodywork reinstalled or buy race bodywork

      All stock bodywork and lights come with it, and I also had a set of old gen 1 R6 bodywork you can have it you want to retrofit. Pictures are of when the bodywork was still on the bike, it has been off and stored properly so you can chose if you want street bodywork or race bodywork on it when you set it up.

      CASH ONLY, NO TRADES, Bike is located in Columbus, OH

      Bike has just been sitting, I don't have time to finish building it or get to the track, so figured it is best to get it to someone that can put it to use.

      Thanks for the consideration, and hope it can go to good use for someone!
