Oh and btw... the 03 R6 was a problem bike because it was the first year of the redesign. They didn't correct the problems until 2004. I know it was also the first year the R6 got fuel injection and they had problems with that and the stock maps.

I have the 05 Raven R6 and i'm pretty sure they didnt have the black in 03 I think it was just blue, red, and silver or gray

Fuel injection, maps, and electrical problems.

Fuel injection problems were dead spots in the throttle like you are running out of gas, and it just wasn't a smooth throttle response.

The map is the configuration for the computer. Basically like a PowerCommander... you can set up your air/fuel ratio ect.... however the OEM map had problems.

Electrical problems were things like the computer going bad, or the ECU, rectifier frying.

I don't recall all the paint schemes for 03 besides the blue, red, and liquid silver with black fairings. I know they made a limited edition black with red flames but I don't remember what year that one came out.

As far as the messagenet goes, you probably need to become a member to view everything.
