2001 YZF-R6 Engine Block sleeves - South Africa


Recommended Posts

I recently had an indecent where my R6 just lost power. I stripped the engine out to find that one of the sleeves collapsed. Spoke to someone that used to work for the agents and he said if it was stressed or ran hot it would be the cause.

This has somewhat put me off Yamaha... or maybe i just bought a dudd. Any way.. would anyone know where i can find a secondhand engine ? Here in South Africa i paid R 30 000 for the bike and the agents want R 28 500 for a sub assembly...

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you
