  1. Digging up an old thread, did you ever figure out what was going on op?
  2. Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, had a trawl but couldnt find anything. Just wondering if anyone knows if the G6E turbo came out in the mystic green/blue colour? I know the xrs and fpvs did ive looked through gumtree and Carsales and havent seen any so thinkin they didnt or if they did just super rare. If someone knows the answer thatd be great. Cheers
  3. Rito as much as I hate to admit it, I accidently put the R1 down the other night. Got a big too excited on a backroad at night and came into a corner a bit too hot and put it into a ditch (im alright apart from a few scratches and bruises). Its scuffed up the rear swing arm, the LH fairing is badly damaged, front nose cone crack, engine cover badly scratched but not cracked. Just wondering if I contacted insurance to have this assessed would it be a write off or would they repair it do you rekon? Its a 2010 R1. Thanks Guys
  4. I think leather seats and a momo steering wheel lol ive pulled the magnet badges off it now anyway
  5. Its shockwave, hasnt had a respray but paint seems to be holding up pretty well. Ive gotta thing for blue cars apparently lol
  6. Yeah didn't take long lol we always planned to get a ute instead of another sedan due to being a lot more useful as the missus has horses. She was adamant we only needed and xr6, I said like hell, its gotta be a turbo and once we got it she was glad we did lol I haven't really got many photos of it but this is one I took after giving it a wash one day. Its not much at the moment but plannin on spending a bit of money on it this year. Get some new wheels and fix a few things up and then get a retune.
  7. Yeah sold it unfortunately back in October 14, decided to buy a house so it had to go. Sold it to a older local fella and its still getting round from what people have told me, I've only seen it the once. I pretty much been blastin around on the R1 and I picked up a bf xr6t ute with zf last year for the right price. Has rods, pump gears, v/springs, 3.23 diff gears and all the other usual bolt ons. Lookin at chuckin a surge, 1000ccs and bigger actuator at it and e85 later on in the year.
  8. Sorry bout the late reply, this comment is probably a bit redundant lol but changing from tbr to plenum only gained around 8kw without playing with the tune. However when we started adding timing and boost etc it responded better with the plenum but we were out of turbo. We could have played with actuators and preload etc to get a bit more out of it but only being a ba I didnt really worry about it.
  9. Hey bud, sorry for the delayed reply havent been on in a while. Yeah ive done that road a few times as I actually live in calliope and go for a quick squirt every now and then. Be good if there were more roads around though for a good thrash that isnt dead straight top speed runs, plenty of them round here lol
  10. Some were a bit narrow but majority weren't too bad, plenty of road room to throw it around corners so the camera makes it look a bit narrower then it was. My mates camera is a Drift Ghost HD. The footage on my Go-Pro doesnt look too bad. There are Lots of nice roads down SE QLD, Just wish I could get down there a bit more to do some riding.
  11. I was in Brisbane toward the end of last year for a few weeks so decided to hit up some roads down there with some mates. Went up around Mt Mee, Mt Glorious and Nebo. Awesome roads to ride and was good to get out as I barely ride the bike up in Gladstone as theres all of about 3 corners in the whole area to ride and all the rest id be lucky to take 4wd on. Makes me wanna sell it and buy a jet ski some times haha would probably get more use out of one. Anyway here are a couple vids my mate put up from his camera on his helmet of the rides we did.
  12. Yeah well you can assume that. Im not havin a go but just informing ol mate of nason crap. I know he no longer uses it due to previous faults. We dont know the previous build times of this motor and whats been used hence my comment.
  13. Hence why I mentioned eariler, if it was rebuilt a little while back it could have nason gear in it. If it was a few weeks ago then happy days it wont have naso.n gear in it. And I never mentioned any names nor did the poster.
  14. Yeah I read that but was wondering if they've been replaced it with atomic chain, tensioner and genuine guides or another sh*t nason timing kit which includes guides, chain and tensioner which have been known to fail.
  15. Im not sayin im 100% sure on what it could be but if it is a certain builder and it was done a little while ago I wouldnt be surprised if it has a cheap nason timing set in it which is guides, tensioner and chain which you can pick up for 140 bucks. A couple chains have failed and tensioners. I would find out asap whats been fitted as they were fitting these timing kits to 10k long motors.
