    Hi All, I bought a 2010 zx6r track bike a year ago. It was running great at the track, until the middle of the 2nd day when a valve broke and munged up the inside of the cylinder (see pics of piston and head). So I bought a 2012 motor with 500 miles on it, and my friend @ninjaman89...

    So I'm looking to get my first bike. I'm 5'10 190lbs, and thinking a 600 would fit my first bike needs best. I found a couple zx6rs on Craigslist. First is a 2011 zx6r, don't know the miles, asking $6500. Second is a very clean looking white 06 zx6r with 27000, one owner, along $4000. I can't...

    I'm looking for some recommendations on service work this spring I have a '04 636 that only has about 11000-12000 miles on it. No engine/mechanical or electrical mods. Not hard riding, a bit of track time a couple of years ago. Wondering if it is worth it to have the front forks re-done...

So the plan would be to paint...

    What's going on guys. First off I'd like to apologize if I'm posting in the wrong section as this is my first post. I browse from time to time but I decided to turn to you guys for some well needed advice. About a month ago I ended up flipping my 2010 ZX6R on a quick stop :bawling: Her gas tank...

    Hello peeps, picked up my G1 yesterday and being new to biking (I guess if you are gonna do something it's a good start) and all that goes with it I have a little question. It came fitted with a Beowulf exhaust but I was wondering if anyone knew what the bhp increase is? I couldn't find any data...

    I have been told two polar opposite methods as to how to break in your engine. The obvious, which is from the manual, is to break it in easy. The other, more controversial method, is to run your engine hard to seal the rings. Further information can be found here: (Break In Secrets--How To...

    I've got a 2007 zx6r and haven't done much with it aside from cosmetics. I'm hoping to turn it into a not-to-perfect track bike over the winter. I wanna start with some basic stuff and then maybe get more technical towards the spring. I need some advice on where to get started and what to do...
