    So, before some of you flame me for not searching, I've been around this site for a while and I have done my searching - I'm so stupid as to post a question without having searched for the answers first. I have a relatively specific question regarding my specific situation and which of a couple...

    Hi, just trying to fit some adjustable rearsets to my '07 zx6r. The brake cylinder on the new rearset is mounted a couple of inches farther forward than stock, and the brake hose from the caliper now won't reach. Does anyone know I could get one to fit off another model of bike? Not bothered...

    I ride a 2007 zx6r i got a few months ago. i noticed that my rear brake pads were rubbing the other day so i lifted the bike up and took a look at it and they were indeed rubbing the brake disc as if they were slightly engaged. I proceeded to remove the caliper and took the pads out noticing...

I absolutely love the ZX6R and can't believe I have never had one before, I have however got one serious and 1 minor problem that I thought I would ask the...

    Hi all, After having my zx6r for 10 months I decided it was time for some more intense checking and tinkering. My rear brake pads need changing in addition to the disc as this is under tolerance. also upon checking run out of my front discs, I found one is particularly bad so needs changing...

    Hey guys, I recently changed my rear brake pedal (still OEM) and when I went to attach the brake switch using the OEM spring, it doesn't seem to reach the peg on the brake pedal that its used to attach to. Am I missing something really stupid or am I supposed to connect the spring to something...

    I taken my bike to shops to get them bleed and it works then I keep it still for about a week and it gets soft again. To the point where I push it all in and it bearly brakes. The shop told me to rebuild them or replace the hole system from the lever back to the master cylinder. They are trying...

    Hey guys, first post here and looking for some help. Found a good deal on some levers but they are asking for size. I looked in my manual and couldn't find it, even tried finding a thread on here, but no luck. The website list sizes, e.g. BRAKE A32-2004C/AL-502 and several other ones for...

    Hey everyone, I'm ricing up the bike a little, I just threw a Spiegler Stainless brake line kit on my bike and thought I'd throw up some pics. They are super easy to replace and they feel way better than stock brakes. Not to mention you can custom order these things in many different colors...

    Okay so yesterday I noticed that there looked like there was brake fluid on my left brake caliper. The fluid isn't coming from the hoses, and i bled the brakes & tightened up the bolts as well. I rode the bike for about half an hour last night, and this morning I noticed the fluid was there...

    Okay, I changed my back tire last night. When I put everything back on, I notice that my rear brake pads are in contact with the disc. In fact so tight that I cant even get the bike to move backwards in neutral. The bike will drive forward with a little throttle. I asked my buddy, and he told...

    Hey dudes and dudettes! I was curious as to who runs what brake pads and why? My front stock brake pads have been squealing a bit and it's time for new pads shortly but I am unsure of the route I would like to take. Any input is greatly appreciated. :cool3:

    Just installed a fender eliminator kit. Blinkers work. Tail light and license plate light work only when the key is turned all the way to the right in park. They don't work when the bike is running and neither does the brake light. The brake light doesn't work no matter what position the...

    NOTE : I wanted to place this in the 'Guides' section but I do not have the option to create a new thread. Perhaps one of the mods would be kind enough to move it for me. "If a job is worth doing, it's worth doing right!" I put this tutorial together to show the right way to upgrade the...

    Hey people, Just put the factory tail and tail light back on my bike (had track tail on it when i bought it) and as you would expect the wiring is hacked up. everything works except for the "brake" light. the light lights up running however when brake depressed (front or rear) it doesnt get...

    Just picked up an 06 636 special edition, going through the bike I have found that I have rear turn signals but no brake light or running light, it's an after market set up and a cluster of wires back there! Anyone know where I can get a diagram or some help?

    Recently dumped my 2009 zx6r and am working on gathering all the parts i need for the rebuild. I'm obviously not trying to pay any OEM prices so I'm looking at all aftermarket products and was hoping I might find some guidance here (or maybe even some parts!) First off, what I really need to...

    I was thinking about getting a shorty clutch lever. Any suggestions? I kinda like CRG's.
