    Running on 3/4 cylinders

    It sounds like a vacuum leak to me. You may have a disconnected vacuum line.

    Pearl White Dented gas tank

    The original post is from 2013. The tank is probably sold by now.

    Clicking noise and no start

    I'd recommend you get yourself a meter and do some continuity testing before you start randomly replacing parts. It's a lot cheaper. According to the Haynes manual (which I highly recommend you get) that's the Starter circuit cut-off relay you are pointing to in your picture. The Haynes manual...

    Givi V35 bags & mounting brackets

    Good luck getting a reply. I asked him about shipping costs over two weeks ago and never got a response. I'm guessing he's already sold them and isn't monitoring this thread anymore.

    Givi V35 bags & mounting brackets

    Do you have any pictures of them on the bike? What would it cost to ship to Colorado?

    Center Stand

    Glad to hear it wasn't too hard for you to get those bolts out. I think they were installed with red Loctite on my 2013. I tried the rubber mallet method, a big breaker bar, and they won't budge without heat.

    Center Stand

    The install instructions that come from SW-Motech are pretty clear. It's an easy install except the two bolts you have to remove to install the spring bracket are a real bitch to get off - they require a lot of heat to get them to break loose.

    Softer shock?

    Adjust the shock pre-load setting to the softest (1) and go from there.

    R6 Calipers

    IDK. I didn't look into much once I saw what it was going to cost.

    R6 Calipers

    I thought about it - the front brakes on my 2005 R6 really spoiled me. I found that the 03-04 R6 or 06-09 R6S used the same size rotors and the calipers should bolt right on the FZ6R. To do it right, you'd also need the R6 master cylinder. I decided against doing it when I figured out the cost...

    WTB Slip On

    Maybe check with Jardine and see if they make a Quiet Insert for your slip-on. That may be the cheapest, easiest way to go.

    How do i delete this post?

    What needs to be done really depends on how the previous owner stored it - because he obviously didn't ride it very much. If he kept it on a Battery Tender, the battery may be fine, otherwise it should probably be replaced. Personally, I never trust anyone regarding the fluids and I change...
