    Okay so, I picked up my ‘08 ZX6R almost a year ago. Had 2200 miles on it when I bought it. Only problem I found on it when I bought it was that the turn signals didn’t work. That wasn’t going to stop me from buying it. I mean, it had 2200 miles and was a steal, COME ON! Anyway, whenever I would...

    What's up fellow riders, I have a 2008 ZZR600 I have converted into a street fighter. Just recently did a rad flush and it began experiencing cooling issues. After replacing the rad, fan switch, fan, thermostat, and hoses, I found that my little guy decided to shove a socket and adapter into the...
  6. The ZX6R
    Well guys, I finally have the exhaust installed! It's a Coffman shorty pipe for a 2008-2010 ZX10r on my 08 ZX6r The sound is very deep and if you ease on the throttle just right it has this amazing tone that I tried to capture in the rev video. Enjoy!

    Hey guys I'm pretty new here so sorry if I post in the wrong place. I have 2008 zx6r with a two brothers exhaust. I thought I would enjoy the TB exhaust but it's just too loud for me. So I want to add the P1x tip. However one of the 6 bolts has broken and the head just broke/snapped off. So...

    So after having an extremely hard time finding a place to do my valve adjustment on my schedule and for a reasonable price I decided I'd tackle this myself. I went out and bought everything I needed and spent about $90 in tools (decided to buy NEW Craftsman feeler Gauges so I knew they were spot...

    Ok so a few days ago I noticed my bike was leaking a little coolant and when I say little I mean no more then a few cap fulls (like a cap from a 2 liter soda bottle). I was at school so I figured I had plenty to get home and check it...at one of the stop lights I noticed a lot more on the...

    I looked through the 07/08 Exhaust Options thread and didn't really see anything about it unless I looked over it. I was wondering, since eBay sells megaphone exhausts slip-ons that you could take the one for an '09 ZX6R and use it on an '08. Anyone have anymore info on this? Or which exhaust...

  12. The ZX6R
    Hi everyone I'm new on this forum and had some unbelievable bad luck :( I bought a 2008 zx6r on Saturday with 6000 miles on. When out riding Sunday the crank case split which spat oil out on my rear tyre causing me to loose control and crash. The bike continued on to hit the kurb which has...

    Was looking to buy a 2008 zx6r mint condition with only 3,400 miles on it, I got the guy down to $4,700. Is this a good price or am I getting screwed ?
  14. Motorcycle Talk
    Since joining this forum some time ago I have noticed a good bit of hate dished out on the 07-08 generation. What I want to know is, why? Are there any legit reasons why people hate on it? Other than the VC gasket issue (really no big deal) which was addressed by Kawi and fixed under recall...
  15. The ZX6R
    I just cleaned my 2008 ZX6R, and after I cleaned the red wheels, they started getting the white haze all over. I used Mothers wheel/tire cleaner, but now I'm thinking that wasn't the best thing to do. No matter what I try, it seems like it comes back and won't go away. Does anybody have any...
  16. The ZX6R
    Hey all, I just had a quick question. I bought an 08 ZX6R back in March from a dealer here in PA. The price wasn't bad at all and it was at about 4K miles. I've been riding it and everything is perfect but noticed the fairings seem different. The bike is black with the red/chrome special edition...

    I have a 2008 ZX6R and having an issue with some bar ends at the moment. Hopefully someone can help me out. I bought the bike awhile ago with these maroon bar ends to match since it's the black special edition bike. One just fell out so I went to the dealer to buy an OEM set. After looking at...

    On my 08 ZX6R, occasionally when I hit the rear brake when slowing, I hear this clunk sound or pop somewhere right underneath me. It sounds like it may be from the right side but I know it's somewhere from the back I'd say. I'm not quite sure what it could be or if it's a problem or not. Most of...
