Punchy's first sports bike 03 ZX-6R

G'day (hello) all,

Loving bikes since i was young and finally bought a street bike, instead of just having the licence and no bike to ride. My daily i ride is a ER6N, which is a learner legal 650cc naked, great for maneuvering through traffic on way to work.
But being a bit handy, and bored since i sold my last race car in pieces, i bought myself a new project, a front impact damaged 2002 built ZX6R (B1H as i have learnt here).
As you can see below, it was pretty damaged, but i got it at the right price, $400. Not bad i thought considering they still sell here for $3000-$5000.

Don't mind the mods to the old trailer, i took one bike down south (13 hours drive) to ride with my brothers new BMW S1000r, and thats where i found the add for the ZX6, so i had to quickly stretch the trailer so i could fit both bikes to get back home.

I held of for a few months, and cheapest frame i could find here was $650, so it was easy to say no before Christmas, so i could get my kids what they wanted....... That was until i found one that came up for sale the week before Santa for $300 with a clear title......
I was so surprised that i got a new frame for Christmas (wife didn't know), i should be nominated for an Oscar this year.

While it was apart, i gave everything a real good clean, re-greased all the bearings and changed the fork oil.

Also forgot to mention that it never came with keys, so i installed a Woodcraft ignition by-pass loom, managed to get the seats off with a little tweaking, and also drilled out the lock on the fuel tank.

You're fortunate that the forms and front rim survived that impact.......nice work.

Do you plan on this being a street fighter?

Yeah was very lucky with the forks, i've ridden it like this last pic, and no oil leaks and the forks seems smooth.

No I am restoring it to original style, but due to costs, i have bought aftermarket fairings from Bliss-Star Racing on Ebay......

Also because the original speedo was missing, and once i joined this forum, found the adaptor to use the later model speedo.

Question though, where does that heat shield go ? Do i use it on both sides around the engine or 1 side ?

I'd expect the heat shield to line your fairing lowers, where the exhaust routes right against the plastics....

Nice bike build. Heat shield goes in areas near the header/ exhaust.

Yeah i suppose if i cut it in half and then just put it where the engine is the closet is the best i can do.

But so glad to have it looking like a real bike for the first time.

With some help last night, we measured to set the sag in the rear suspension:

Free standing - 545mm

loaded with my heavy 110kg ass - 520mm

So to my surprise, the rear spring must have been changed to support something my size, i haven't reduced pre-load yet to see if i can get a bit more sag from it, but it's a better start than what i thought i was going to end up with seeing as they are set up for a 70kg rider from the factory.....

Some expensive finishing touches, $70 for each "ZX-6R" and $20 each "636", I thought i'd see while i had them to get a mate that does wrap's and stickers a go at trying to copy them, but no good, these are way to complex to match.
Ah well, i tried.

Also bought a used leather race suit so i can head to the track soon and learn to ride this thing, will pick that up in a couple weeks.
