    I have a 2008 zx6r, I'm about to get new sprockets and chain. Thinkn about doing -1 in front +2 in back. Anyone know how much top end I will lose? Bike does 170 now, don't want any less than 160. Thanx...

    In the next few months Im making the change over to -1/+2 sprockets, and I am trying to figure out which brand I should go with.

    I have just recently purchased a 06 ZX6R 636 and I use to for a daily commuter on a lot of highway travel and I was wanting to set up the gearing for the best mpg’s. So my question is what is the biggest front sprocket that you can put on the front and the smallest you can put on the back...

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...

    I'm looking to change my gearing a little in the back. Should I go up two or three and what brand do other riders recommend? Also I would like to put a power commander on it but have no clue of mapping, brand, or how to install! If I could get some tips I would be very grateful!

    Hey Guys, Just curious, how many teeth are you able to go up in the back on the '09 stock chain? Stock has 43 and I was thinking of going with a 46 if I could, but I would leave the front where it is. Reason being is simply because its cheaper (eventually I will upgrade it all). Is there an...
