Not sure if I belong here

I got my first bike last year and loved it. I have an 05 zzr600. This is where I'm not sure if I should be here or not The owners manual says ZX6R on it but the bike is a zzr600. I'm confused.

At the end of the summer we were taking the bike to our garage to store it for the winter and I was in a car behind my boyfriend, another car pulled out to get in front of me and says he didn't see my boyfriend, hit him and wrecked our bike. It's still rideable but we need to replace a few things. I'm just here for ideas and help on getting it how we want it. I figure if I'm going to spend a couple thousand I may as well get the bike how I want it since I never liked the blue anyway.

Sorry if my bike won't fit in here! If it does then hello everyone!

Your 05 ZZR600 is really just an 2001 ZX6R with new stickers on it.
Kawasaki rebadged & reintroduced it in 05 as a sports tourer, But it's still a 6R at hart.
I even pulled the ZZR stickers off mine & put ZX6R on it.
Still get people asking "what is it", "what size is it"?


Trust me, It did look like your bike at one time, For about 15 minutes..

I'm sure you'll be fine...as long as you're ok with taking some crap now and then, putting up with some stupid people now and then, that kind of thing, you'll be fine

Take a look at my avatar... it's those ugly bars going from my frame, up and over my clip-ons, and to my mirrors. Ugly shit.

Thanks everyone!! Oldninjadude, that looks really nice! I can't wait to get mine fixed. Hope it looks as good. I never liked the dark blue color of it anyway so I'm excited to change it. It doesn't look horrible but it needs work. It was such a nice bike before this happened too. We bought it from a friend who got it brand new, broke it in then never rode it. It has 2.5k miles on it. I'll get pics up once I have a real break at work haha.
