I would say disassemble the switch link and apply epoxy/nail polish. The only problem with the burr is that dirt will get in thru that crevice. Filling it would not degrade performance. You may have to refill it every few years though.

I've had my new 2017 SB6c about a month and I'm looking for a frame bag to fit in the front triangle forward of the shock. Anyone got any recommendations for me? Blackburn made a bag for Ibis that was called "pork chop" I think. It's kinda close to what I have in mind but not a perfect fit. Love the bike!

Have you looked at Rockgeist? I know of a few people that have them and they love them.

Anyone know the Bearing code for the frame bearing? 2015 SB6C Purchased a naked frame and don’t want to pay double the prices for bearings in a branded packaging. Thanks

I found a used 2017 YETI SB6C for sale. What are the main differences between the 2017 and 2019 YETI SB6C models? Did YETI make any significant changes to the bike from 2017 through 2019?

Thanks for your help!

pretty sure other than maybe a boost spacing rear end, the sb6c remained the same until it was replaced by the sb165

Main difference is for 2019 they went tube in tube routing for the cables, apart from that the frame is the same. They also went with a 10mm longer fork with shorter ofset.

2015 is non-boost.
2016 SB6C is definitely BOOST, I’m looking for some Boost carbon wheels for the turquoise frame Im building up now. Have a big 180mm Lyrik, Guide RE brakes, SRAM XO1 11spd with 9-50t, Next SL cranks, OneUp 170 dropper. Gonna be my XC/DH do-everything bike.

I bought a used 2016 Yeti SB6C frame and am in the process of building it up into my ONE do-everything MTB. From what I’ve heard the SB6C is THE best all around bike! I had a Reign, Spartan, and Mach 6. I’m not rich, just good at shopping for deals and doing all my own work.

I want the bike to be a decent XC bike, excellent trail bike, great jumping and drops bike, and also be able to handle any DH courses. So I want light, strong, long travel, slack, efficient, plush, and affordable within reason.

I’ve already upgraded, and added parts to this build. I did the “ride through the curb” test and was amazed! The X2 and 180 Lyrik soaked up that sharp 7” curb better than anything I remember riding.
I have carbon rims ordered, Yeti 800 carbon bars and grips ordered, custom decals in galaxy / Yeti turquoise ordered.
Adding parts from my Mach 6.

Nice ride-could go for some i9 trail wheels that are really strong and light. Cheaper that carbon wheels and take a lot of abuse. Renthal stems are also nice. The SB6 I had weighed 28lbs and climbed well.
