    So I've noticed alot of what sounds like rattle coming from the right side of the engine. The bike still rides and feels great but while riding without headphones can hear an awful lot going on inside the engine. My bike is a 2005 zx6r and I've tried tightening the cam chain tightening bolt (the...
  3. The ZX6R
    Hi 6rs, I need help please. I was in a bad crash a month ago and right now I don't have any cash for crazy-ass Mechs, I'm from South Africa and over here even a service costs an arm, leg and balls. I need to turn my motor, so it doesn't seize. I tried hotwiring the bike, since the ignition...
  4. The Build Thread
    '96 Rebuild Hey guys, been a while. So, after a long time coming, I was finally able to start my rebuild. She’s come a long way since the start but I figured while I wait for more parts (and money) I’d post about it. Quick history - bought the bike 6 years ago, found out it had a LOT of...

    Heyo! Raced a great and full season in 2018 and my 2010 ZX6R has served me exceedingly well! It has approximately 16k miles on the clock and with the off-season here the the inability to road race here in the Pacific Northwest, the blues are setting in! However, this does mean I have some time...

    Okay guys, 0304 636. Recent rebuilt top end. Dyno shows that it's killing fuel and spark around 6k rpm at any throttle position. Sensors have been swapped, throttle bodies and ignition coils swapped as well. Tested cam position sensor and crank position sensor. Also idles a little rough. Plugs...

    Just got a 2005 zx6r. Overall a great bike and only 7000km. Doing some work soon it to get it ready for spring. Took all the fairings off and noticed some type of weld/gasket repair to the lower half of the block. IS this a good repair, should I be concerned or off loading this bike ASAP???:|

    Hey everyone, I have a question about swapping parts from an 04 636 into an 05 636? A friend of a friend is selling brand new (most still in package) parts that he bought to rebuild the engine in his 04 track bike before he sold it, and he's offering them for a really good price. My 05 has...

    Hi guys, I have a 2013 zx6r with 5000+ miles and I think I might got a slight problem :crying Background: I had frame sliders on until I low sided at 4500 miles, after the crash I bought the parts and a dealer fixed it. After the bike is up and running, I took the old sliders out, and didn't...

    So I bought a bazzaz with the auto tuner (z-afm) for my 2011 zx6r, I did some more research on it and I found out in order to get an accurate AFM reading I need engine block off plates. I even called bazzaz tech and they also said I did. My question is since I have to remove the smog pump, will...

    Had a nasty tick when i got the bike so i took the cap off and knocked the cct one more click as a temporary fix. She still makes some noise ticking but not as bad. My main consern is the other noise in the video posted below. The bike is stock minus a k&n air filter, bought it used so im not...

    He everyone, I just bought an 06 636 and took it out for the first long ride yesterday and encountered a few problems I have never had on any other bike. The first problem- the friction zone on the clutch lever seemed to change by itself from the last 90% of the lever to the first 10%. When it...

    So I ended up buying a 2007 zx6r with 10K miles that, does not run. The bike has been laid over hard on both sides and needs some serious love. She cranks alright and I can get her started with starter fluid. Unfortunately, once the bike starts it makes some angry clattering noises and dies :O...

    Hi everyone, haven't been on here in awhile. I tried to ride my bike today for the first time this year and I went down the street. When I came bake I started feeling vibration and then the bigger cut off. I stop and look down. Oil everywhere. There was a hole on top of crank case. So now I need...

    I just swapped out the engine on my 07 zx6r. I got the other 3 bolts on the new engine in place, but the upper left mount hole is about 1/8 inch offset (needs to go up and slightly back), the manual said to put left in first before the right side but I didnt. So my question is how can I mannage...

    So looks like I dropped a valve at the track. Good way to ruin a great day on the bike. So now I'm in teardown mode and maybe rebuild. I will for sure need a new cylinder head and piston. Going to crack the block soon, but I did notice some damage to the cylinder bore wall. Is this a lost...
  18. The ZX6R
    Hello all, I was looking for some advice on possible issues on my bike. I have been hearing somewhat of a ticking noise coming from my engine. At first I checked the cam chain tensioner and adjusted it, however the noise did not go away. I then checked my valves, I believe 2-3 were out of spec...

    I own an 2003 ZX6R with 9,200 miles. For the last two or so weeks I've been having some problems with the throttle getting choppy. To explain after riding for about 15 minutes I'll start to have a problem where the engine cuts in and out as if my clutch is engaging and disengaging. So far as I...

    The title pretty much says it all. Recently got a knock on my 07 zx6r. Purchased it with 4300 miles. It now has 8700 miles. Never revved over 14k or stunted. Started losing power a couple days prior to receiving knock. Won't even turn over anymore. Looking for a good, clean engine to swap out my...
