Just picked up this girl for almost nothing having issues finding Carb O rings for it online. is 1999 R6, this is my first time on a 600 I hope I like it considering my last bike was an R1 but ran into some financial issues. But now with this cheap beauty I can get it going just gotta clean the carbs

The FZ6 and FZ6R are not restricted. They are geared different and have a few other differences such as the cams, insectors, headers, and so on.
Yes Dave Patton III you're right. I just read again the article and says what you mention.
So let's say for some reason so.etching goes really bad can I just swap a motor and tranny from an FZ6R and throw the carbs on it ? But is the newer motor a genesis motor as well, you know 5 valves per cylinder
I don't know.....
The FZ6 and FZ6R are fuel injected.
The only issue I see it's the timing being jacked but any engine can run on a carb, and I think the newer motor has coils per cyl rather than an inline carb set up so yes I know it's possible, just the fiering order would be different... I guess it would be smart to do a full swap with wire hardness and all and go FI if I did do a swap, this thread has become very interesting and lots of knowledge
Or just swap the clutch and not have to worry about it any more.
I'm kind of confused clutch and second gear are two completely things in my mind, I have worked on my cars transmission before and swapped 3rd gear before so I'm assuming is the same concept except a bike tranny is more like a dogbox gear set just theeth no synchros, so when I read bad gear goes bad I'm assuming something is wrong with the actual gear not the clutch disk set... Or possibly a shift selector/fork but if the clutch is the the way to fix the pop out from gear even better
In a bike you can have tight a tight pattern, a sloppy, pattern, and all in between. The FZ6 has a tight but ruged built. I can shift with not clutch but at the same time when I use the clutch you can hear the gear changes and feel them.
Just picked up a carb rebuilt kit for all 4 it was about 90 bucks 110 shipped not a bad price IMO compared to the link above
