R6 suspension/tyres


A good starting point for your suspension is the MCN article below (see 9th page).  Some settings recommended in MCN transformed the handling of my 2001 R6.

As for tyres, I can highly recommend Pirelli Diablo Corsa III tyres for an R6 or Michelin Pilot Power 2CT tyres are highly rated on here.
