Question What is the difference between ZZR600 and ZX6r carbs?

I have read that they are interchangeable, but they look different. What are the harnesses on the ZZR carbs connected to? I have an 01 ZX6r and my carbs look like the attached pic. Then there is this eBay listing..

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-00...YAAOSwJkVdzcDU

My bike has been sitting about 10 years now and last time I tried to start it in about 2013 it had a ton of trouble starting and I couldn't get it to stay running without the choke on. Pulled the carbs thinking I'd clean the pilots and wound up letting them sit in my shop for 6 years. I don;t really want to deal with them so do you guys think it's smarter to just buy another set, clean the pilots, or pay someone to rebuild and sunc them? Is there an mail in service you guys can recommend? I think I bit off more than I can chew but I really want to get back riding next season.

No difference as far as I know. The ones in the ebay listing are California spec carbs. Those are fuel cut solenoids for the float bowls, emissions crap.

Ohhh ok. So would they work with those harnesses just disconnected? The seller sent me an offer and I'll jump on it if I can use them.

2002 ZX6R and 2005-2008 ZZR600 carbs are the same.........

2001 and older are 1mm smaller ID

but as mentioned those are commifornia spec carbs with fuel cut offs if tipped over

Even those Ebay cards for $135 are going to need at minimum to be cleaned and I would highly suggest replacing the o-rings (so if you did it yourself you would still be 200ish or if you pay someone- you could be 350-400ish)

I bet for the same monies or less you can actually get your carbs cleaned and working well (and by the time you pay someone and buy some parts and even with shipping -if you shipped) I doubt you end up over 350)

Take off one of the float bowls and take a pick close up enough to view easily to see how bad they look inside

I mean if you wanted them professionally cleaned and rebuilt I would do it, parts is parts though and I can only speculate what parts it would need
--do the slides slide up and down now?
--are the needles all green when you do lift the slide and look inside?
-- what does the inside look like

just for some example pricing.......

needle/seat and new o-ring is about $25 x 4 of them.......... but if all you need is the 4 o-rings you are about $8 for the 4
float bowl o-rings are about $7 each x 4
the fuel line junction o-rings between the carbs are maybe another $10

loose carbs that aren't horrific I generally charge $150 for a inline 4 to clean
just a guess but if you had $25 shipping each way............. that gets you right at $350 with new needle/seats & the other requisiste o-rings or $280ish with just all new o-rings

Do you have a jet kit or anything in yours?

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

Sorry, don't want to highjack the thread.
