Hello fellow Daytona shopper! Good luck!
Question for you. On your R6, how difficult is it to roll on the throttle smoothly? Daytona riders, I'm curious how your bikes are also. In the turns when I'm leaning pretty good I extend considerable effort into trying to be smooth (which slows me down by being distracting) with the throttle. Strangely enough, even though the R6 is so weak down low, you still get that little tiny burst of power on the initial pull. Now it's not scary or anything but:
1) I don't appreciate the bike not following my commands. I'm smooth, so should it.
2) When leaned over I'm subject to potential traction issues. I don't want anything taking traction away.
This problem seems to reside at lower RPMs, so a faster rider would not have them I think.
Perhaps if I set my corner speed better, I would not be starting to roll on while I'm leaned over. I would roll on straight up(then who cares about a little jerk in the throttle?), then when I'm leaned over I've already passed that initial rough response and should be smooth sailing.
On another note about the R6 versus the Daytona, you are perhaps better suited for a Daytona than most. The ergonomics of your R6 are quit aggressive on the wrists. The Daytona has kind of a high seat low bars kinda feel, so depending on how you sit, you could be leaning into your wrists. On the R6, I find myself spending a lot of time trying keep weight off my wrists(should be doing that anyway) and I've had some uncomfortable rides. I expect any comfort issues on the Daytona would be something that would not sending you running because:
A) You are used to it
B) You have already adopted a technique that saves your wrists
Please note that most of these riders on here will probably say they have little to no issues with D675 long rides, so somehow they have worked it out or are OK making the sacrifices.
This is good info, thanks guys. I was hoping to see a little bit more low range as well. I have a 2007 r6, and there's plenty of top end, Low end not so much.
I've never done a valve adjustment, just always seemed like more than I can do myself but we'll see what happens if I get one
