Need some advice

Alright, Im looking at alot of parts to get with teh new r6. and some of the parts are GYTR but are pretty expensive. I guess bc gytr made it. but cost isnt my biggest worry, do aftermarket parts work better? for instance, GYTR high flow air filter, or BMC race filter...etc since GYTR is SPECIFICALLY made for yammy's do they work better FOR them. This is gonna be my first NEW bike and i wanna baby the outta her hehe

They are about the same price... Gytr air filter is 109.. But my thing is, does the gytr work better for an r6 since it's made by yamaha for yamaha

i'm sure there are ppl who will swear by gytr and ppl who will swear by BMC.. i dont know where there are any but the only way to find out would be to find someone who had there bike dyno'd with both of them on the same day..

I dont think it will make any kind of difference between the two..

what other mods are you thinking about?

Meh, I wouldn't worry too much. Go with the cheaper. I have had K&N's on my bike (80 bucks for 2 pod filters) and I've found recently that the cheaper UNI (40 bucks for 2 pods) Out flow and out filter the K&N's and last just as long. Point being, just because it has some fancy name and is more expensive, doesn't always mean it will work better. Check with the companies who make them, check their warranties and even give them a call, ask questions.

Just other misc stuff, like they said aftermarket seat cowls don't for well, and fender eliminator doesn't either, then gytr pipe will bring out more HP since it's specifically tuned for yammy...etc
