You'll need a PF30A style BB for that bike... Looks like this one if you stick with cbear:

As an alternative I installed BBinfinite in mine because the constant creaking was driving me insane... Im not pushing bbinfinite on anyone, just saying it eliminated the creakies...

Thought i'd drag this post back up...

I'm after the same thing, but for a 2016 supersix hi-mod. Is the 2018 model the same?

Reason I ask is i'm unsure how the c-bear will play with the rear derailleur cable. The bbinfinite looks to foul the cable and you have to use some ptfe inner against the bb shell. This sounds faffy to me, not keen! Is the c-bear narrow enough to clear the cable?

Cheers
Mark

How is the cable replacement with the c-bear also? Do you have to uninstall the whole thing to change the cable?
