Question about R6 1/6 throttle tubes

Can you use any years or do you have to use a certain year for 04-07?
And do you not have to change out any cables?
Thanx before hand
Don

From memory use 08 onwards r6 tube .I put it on an 05 and needed full adjustment so I had to loosen the cables at the throttle bodies but well worth the hassle,a really good mod.

I've thought about doing this just because I don't like the slop that's there from stock..just heard it was a pain indeed

You can only adjust so much though..I've got it almost as tight as I can make it, but its still noticeable to me..I just figured the whole assembly would be a tighter feel
(not trying to take it off topic)

I've seen a write up or two saying that you can leave the stock cables on. And If i remember right that one was on a 600rr.

After tightening the throttle cables, be sure to turn the bars lock to lock at idle and make sure the RPM's don't change.

I did the r6 mod on my 12 1krr with no issues at all with my stock cables. it was very easy to do and well worth it!! As the x said make sure your cables don't bind would want throttle to stick on a ride! Good luck, there is a really good write up on the forum someplace.

04 with the r6 thottle, stock cables. Only side effect has been a 20 mile decrease in miles on a full tank, and my front has trouble staying down up to 3rd. Real hard 2nd to 3rd shift in cold weather lifts the front right up. 1st is downright scary with my gearing and throttle combo. Dont think I have been wot in 1st since installing the throttle.
