  1. Aftermarket fuel cap

    The ZX6R
    Does anyone have any recommendations on an aftermarket fuel cap/base? I'm seeing 3 main contenders... Lightech, Vortex and Driven. I'm trying to get away from needing to use my key when fueling up.

  4. What kind of gas works best for you?

    The ZX6R
    So usually I pump gas at BP and fill my tank with premium (93) and my bike loves it! Today, I had to go to my sisters house to pick up a camera and although I knew I should have pumped gas, I didn't. My gas light came on and I was on a highway and the only close gas station was a Speedway. I...
  5. Aftermarket gas caps

    The ZX6R
    What gas caps are people using? I have an 07 zx6 and I hate the stock gas cap the key gets jammed sometimes. I want just a black gas cap, a quick turn style but really haven't found much of anything out there. What are you guys using?
  6. Anyone else have a gas problem?

    The ZX6R
    I bought a 2013 ZX6R 636 brand new this last December. Ever since I got it my gas light comes on at the 70-80 mile mark. I wind up filling up every two days! One time I figured the light might be turning at the half way point and I wound up running out of gas on the freeway. I pushed it a mile...

  16. Chevron Gas!

    Motorcycle Talk
    I've recently found out from a guy I work with (chevron employee for 30 years) that chevron gas is the best kind for your bike. The reason it's so expensive is because they give you a higher octane than what they have on the labels. If you put "91" in you could actually be filling up with 95...
