Hello old friends and Bimota Bretheren!

My '97-98 SB6R #000016 Is in need of:

CLOCK SET (Gauge cluster) MPH NOT KPH ...
ahhhh, I guess a metric speedo would be okay, in a pinch.

Rear tail lamp lens (I remember rumblings of a Benelli scooter application working here? TRUE???

Rear sprocket (Antera wheels, stock OEM) I am running a AFAM #93610-42 but that number seems to be discontinued...or having trouble finding an application here in the USA....Utah, USA.....where Bimotas are INDEED RARE!!!

...and if known, of the top of one's head, the 530 drive chain link length ???
(DID 530 gold) I know I can count the links, but I can only count up to 10....at least the metric system is still in play....LOL! So, if anyone knows off the top of their head...Please, if anyone must get on the floor and count, it'll be ME! arrrgghhh....The older I get, the further away the floor seems to be!

Hey guys (and gals...if applicable), any help, tips, advise, and/or directions to a local "HIGH-BRIDGE"Rolling Eyes ...... would be appreciated.....

Regards,

Tom

Its the Yamaha Aerox scooter rear light that youre after...plenty here in UK...be it the lens only or the full unit which is identical with 3 fixings bolts and electrical connecters...or you can buy a blingy led unit with clear lens etc etc....also evidently search in USA...difficult to do from here as computer knows I'm in the UK so brings up sellers from here even if I search from ebay.usa…

Pretty sure I have a contact for afam sprockets and chains for Bimotas in GErmany...will search and repost...also think I've seen SB6R clocks in mpg somewhere...just cant quite recall

https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_osacat=0&_odkw=yamaha+qr50+aerox+rear+light&_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=yamaha+aerox+rear+light&_sacat=0

This company in the UK lists Chain and sprocket kits (afam) for the SB6R....and either 5 or 6 rear sprocket bolt fixings to take account of different wheels...(pretty sure the Antera wheels are 6 stud???)

https://www.biketorqueracing.co.uk/parts/chains-and-sprockets/chain-and-sprocket-kits/recommended-chain-and-sprocket-kits.htm?make=bimota&model=sb6r%201000%20(6%20stud)&year=1998

Darn it...previous company in GErmany used to have English option on their website...but now dont...grrghhh



This nice german man has SB6R clocks...but in Kms

Also check the Owners Handbook if you have one....Bimota do sometimes list how many links in the chain and sprocket teeth sizes...sometimes they do..sometimes they dont...and whether its correct or not is an entirely other matter...….. Laughing

Um ... if the rear sprocket is worn badly enough that you want to change it and the chain .... then you ought to do the front.

Please don't kill me Wink

Afam chains have the easy link thing and their chain tool works a treat.

Use Koso clocks

FANTASTIC!

THANK YOU SO MUCH, GENTLEMEN!!!

Koso clocks, ayhe? I will check them out. And, yes the front sprocket will be
replaced as well. They are OEM Suzuki 1100W fare.



I really cannot convey my gratitude, You guys are indeed top shelf.

Respectfully,

Tom
