03-05 R6 & 06-09 R6S Changing display settings (shift light)
How to change the settings on the gauge cluster on your YZF R6/R6S
motorcycle such as the shift light brightness, timing when it comes on, and
the clock. Very annoying when the shift light comes on at 13K per the stock
settings and blinds you at night.

I know all of you master electricians might say otherwise, but quick
splices are very good for the purposes here. Please don't tell people to
solder- if you do not have proper tools and experience, you will do a very
poor job and it will simply crack and break within weeks of installation.

Audi R8 style lights on a Yamaha R1
Audi R8 style lights on a Yamaha R1. LED strip was installed and wired to
operate as a turn signal as well as the running lights. I got the led
strips from eBay; they are just 24 LED flexible strips. (Do a search there
are hundreds) Next you will need 2 5 pin Bosch style relays. (Dont get the
4 pins they don't have an output for normally closed (87a) which is what
you need for them to be running lights.) Next dismantle your bike down to
just the headlights. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the
head light on a cooking sheet and then in the oven for 7 minutes. Remove
headlight and pry the housing apart, its pretty easy with the help of a
flathead screwdriver. Next glue in your LED strips; I used high temp
silicone RTV on mine you can experiment if you like. Once installed lightly
press the housing back together and put it back in the oven for 7 minutes
when its done you can press it firmly together and the clips will re-snap
down. Now just reassemble your bike and wire them up! you can wire it like
I did as alternating with the flasher or if you dont want it to flash you
can ditch the relays and wire it to any keyed 12 volt source on your bike.
I happen to have used the stock 12v running light power for the stock
signals (a blue wire as I recall.) Do this at your own risk I accept no
responsibility if you confuse Fahrenheit for Celsius and melt your damn
headlights :) Have fun kids!

2004 Yamaha R6 Ticking
Motor makes a loud ticking noise right around 3k when warmed up. Doesnt
make the noise at all when its cold, no performance issues. Im aware of the
"yamaha tick" but i really dont think this is it because its very loud.
Bike has 13k mi.
I replaced my timing chain along with all of the guides and the tensioner,
the noise is gone but there is still a slight tick coming from the valves i
