Alright i have been doing some research and i was wondering if some of you could help me out with a few questions.
First off these are a few things that i have found out

03-04 and 06-07 R6s are identical bikes less the decals
05 has the same body except for a little piece that sits right in front of the raidator and a different front fender
05 has inverted forks
03-07 R6 including the S model all of them have the same wheels
05 R6 has the same brake rotors and caliper (or atlest the same mount) as the 06-07 R6 but are different from 03-04 R6
05 has the same brake and clutch lever as the 06-07 R6

Is there anything else that i am missing?
Do sprockets from a 06-07 fit an 03-05?
Do they all use the same wheel bearings?
Do clip ons from an 06-07 fit the 05R6?

What parts are interchangeable and what arent?

guys with experience from both bikes would help

all the sprockets 03-08 are interchangeable.
Bearings work as well
clip-ons are interchangeable as long as they go to the same style forks...inverted to inverted, or conventional to conventional.

I have had an one from each year...what other parts do you want to know about?

I've had an 04, 06, & 08 R6.

The main difference that matter aren't the things you see or what parts are swappable but they have different frames & different motors. They improved them as track bikes. Better street bikes too for a rider like me but some don't like how track like they are for riding just street. The 06-07 R6 have bad low-mid so new gearing is needed.
