hissing sound - August 12, 2007, 10:27 PM

so i have an 04 r6 with about 9,500 miles on it. i was riding the other day and i heard what i can only describe as a hissing sound coming form the left side of the bike. it only does it under power.... not at idle or when i'm coasting. i also know its not the wind because it does it at lower speeds (25 or 30mph). I lubed the chain about 2 weeks ago so i don't think its that. Maybe the chain is too loose? anyone have any other ideas?

Be VERY careful.


There is a snake stuck under your left side fairing.


I know, I'm worthless, but that's the only thing I can think of that hisses.

Left side? Front or back?

For what it's worth sounds like exhaust leak? Have you done any work on this lately? The header bolts on aftermarket flanges need to get checked from time to time. You would notice a dip in power if you have a leak as well.

Not sure if the R6 have an Exup valve, could be this, rip it off you do not need it, hahaah.

I would look at the whole system, or have a friend rev it while you are looking from under with lowers off.


Can't choose between the R1 and the 10R so I am keeping both but settled with an 1198S when I came home

Keep it up!!!!!!!
