00' Yamaha R6 HELP!!

Well i have had my bike (00' yamaha R6) for about 3 months now and really want to start adding modifications to it, i need advice on what would be the best way to squeeze a little more out of the engine and what steps i would need to take to start proper maintenance on it. Any advice would help a ton! Thinking of a jet kit, velocity stacks, maybe change the exhaust to a Megaphone with an upgraded after market header. ideas?? thanks.

Save your money and dont bother with the stacks. I have never seen a marked improvement with them. They only help in the very top of the RPM range and hurt the low end. Gearing is the cheapest way to go. Why would you want a megaphone?

Thanks for the advice on the stacks, as for the megaphone, i really digg the look of them and want something to significantly improve the sound of the bike.

Most will share my opinion that that is not an improvement in sound. Do what you want though. A gear change will wake that bike up more than anything other than motor work or nitrous. I would start with -1 on the front sprocket.

+1 on gearing and a megaphone will make ppl hate u. Try lookin up devil shogun exhaust (I think) I've always loved that exhaust for ur bike. It's a dual pipe set up.

Go down one tooth on the front sprocket.
Add a good exhaust, not the megaphone as it will rob any of the little low end power that bike has and add a Factory Pro jet kit. Do not install an aftermarket filter on that bike.
The above items will help the bike breathe and accelerate better.

Any yosh, slip-on or full should be pretty loud at least when you're romping on it. Yosh is a high dollar pipe. I wouldn't mess with it.

I can look at the exhaust and let you know if it's a full system or not.
Swing by at your convenience.
