    I need to change my fork oil on my 2015 zx6 with stock showa forks (rebuilt 7k miles ago for my weight, riding style, etc). The service manual makes it seem complicated. Saying I need to remove the piston rod assembly and use a rod guide case wrench. Can I simply loosen the top plug and leave...

    So this weekend I will be installing my new forks! Penske 20mm internals, 9.5KG/mm springs for my weight, all fresh seals, and fresh Maxima 7W fork oil. Considering my OEM forks have 20k miles on them and leak, this should be HUGE. Not to mention, we all know the progressive springs and...

    Our 1990 ZX6R is not engaging 4th gear. Makes rattling noises, so we just go from 3rd to 5th. I have been told this is a fork issue, so I am looking into rebuilding the transmission. I'd like to pick up some nice used forks. I presume any of the 1990-93 will work, but anyone know if other years...
