You can find newer & better shocks on eBay for cheap.
Id go with an 07 -2012 ZX6R shock.

As for the forks, Id do a fluid flush & change. New springs will help it a lot too.

are the shocks completely compatible or do they need mods?

And for the fluid/seal/springs is there any brand or anything you could guide me towards?

With the shock you will need the linkage, But most listings are for the shock & linkage.
Look for one with the least miles, Ask if you have to.

On the forks, ah heres a link to my thread.....

https://zx6r.com/build-thread/21608-o...ce-mods-2.html

Should be of some help to ya, I hope.

Take the swing arm off and clean, inspect and re-grease the bearings. Same with the steering stem. Not all that hard to do with it as far apart as you already have it.

Lube the cables.
Remove, clean, inspect and re-grease all the controls; front and rear brake levers, clutch lever, peg pivots (if you don't have rearsets). Use a good waterproof grease.
Flush and change the coolant.
Sync the carbs/throttle bodies.

All good annual maintenance items.

Your wheel bearings should be the sealed type, Unless your referring to the sprocket hub bearing.
It will need cleaning & regreasing.
Don't use any solvents though, Just a clean dry rag to wipe out the old grease.

Sounds like you did good on the shock.
