I dunno, I gave up. Too much effort, I'd rather just pay another $150 for the 2nd tire. I prefer running cashed race take-offs on the street anyway. Makes commuting him in 34 degree rain that much more entertaining.
I found the price of the rear to be WAYYYY to pricey?? Heck by the time I bought the rear and got the FREE front it was gonna cost near $200! I can get a set of BT010's off the net for much less than that!
Well this is what I have found out. The retail price for the Diablo street rear (180/55) is $199 but dealers vary big time as what they will actually sell it for. MR Cycle Center here in Asheville wants $134 for it, Waynesville Cycle Center will sell it for $160, Harpers Yamaha wants $124.99. Its certainly worth your time to call around. None of the dealers had heard about this promotion by the way.
Go ahead and put that 70 series front on the 6r :thumb. My R6 came with 60 series and after a few sets, I finally changed to a 70 series and have never looked back. And if you plan to take the 6r to the track, DEFINITELY go with the 70 series .
