You sound WAY too excited to be staying in Manchester and Hull :lol

As far as Manchester goes, I'm sure Evo can give you some hints and tips. I'll give him a call shortly and get him to post up.....not sure he'd see this before the weekend otherwise.

Come to think of it, I'll be around Manchester on Sunday.


Have fun!

that helps a lot. I was mainly lookin for performance parts and "gear" Like spyke leathers, we don't get that stuff, or clover leathers, things like that. Like where can i get some passenger peg covers for my 08 r6?

all htat stuff you listed is great!!!

Where can i get some decently priced ohlins shocks? how much are they in the uk?

you forgot to factor in the Gordon Brown bit.
He is the moron in charge of this forlorn country. He treats us all as idiots and taxes anything that moves (twice).
We live in an over populated, over regulated, over priced, over taxed, and over spent country. :furious
I just hope you are not planning to drive anywhere in England when you are here

An Ohlins TTX will set you back more than £600 for an R6. Unfortunetly as you don't have an ACU card discounts on race shocks are difficult.

You need to check out http://www.motoforum.net/index.php?act=idx for a second hand unit or use ebay UK for a shock like this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/YAMAHA-R6-200...ryZ10490QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

Alternativeley se a WP unit like what is fitted to my race bike a link to MCT and Darren who runs it will sort you out with a shock unit no problems http://www.mctechnics.co.uk/home.htm

For Ohlins the best person is Steve Jordan who did the front forks for our teams race bike http://www.stevejordanmotorcycles.co.uk/

As you are in the North the other person to try is Slingshot Jim in Preston +447980749925

Or in the south of the country it is the person who I use for a bit of stuff and knows quiet a bit about the R6 of any year http://www.seton-tuning.co.uk/

Hope this helps, if you want a rear shock try the above people, if you want a race/ track bike try the above people. If you want a road bike then "it does what it says on the tin" :thumbup that's a Brit joke about a timber care product :lol

i just got back from the yamaha store and hein gericke. Geez That Hein Gericke store had loads of stuff! I don't think i've ever seen a store with that much gear! I've never seen so many one piece suits! The D-store here in Costa Mesa California has a lot of one pieces, but they're only Dainese. I was shocked! I wanted to get the arlen ness boots but they only had black :( I'm going to stop at metropolis motorcycles in London to check ou their inventory. Do any of you guys know where i can get arlen ness boots out of a store?

thats what i did lol! i tried em on and if i see em in metropolis i'll get em....if not i'm gonna have to get em off the web. I just thought it would be cool to buy some boots from here while i was here cause we can't get em anywhere else. I was millimeters from buying a pair of arlen ness gloves. Its there top of the line glove. I haven't seen anywhere i could buy em online so in hte us so i was gonna get em, but i like my current gp pro gloves. I really want those boots!
