    Hey all, I recently ripped apart the bike to do routine maintenance and discovered that the previous owner had wired the fuel pump in a weird way. The black and yellow wire is missing from the back of the male connector on the bike. In the wiring diagram, this looks like a ground wire. While...

    Hi All, I bought a 2010 zx6r track bike a year ago. It was running great at the track, until the middle of the 2nd day when a valve broke and munged up the inside of the cylinder (see pics of piston and head). So I bought a 2012 motor with 500 miles on it, and my friend @ninjaman89...

    I have a early production 2013 ZX6R that I bought used. When starting it cold it may take 2-4 attempts until the engine will start warming up instead of dropping rpms too low and stalling out. I have done a lot of research and this appears to be an ECU issue. I have found a good price on a 2015...

    I recently adjusted my valve to be within factory spec. And after reassembly when I rev my bike on the downward rev it pauses at 3.5k rpm and slowly goes down from there. I don't think it has anything to do with the idle Bc I've adjusted that several times. Possibly the throttle cable? I've...

    Hey guys, Ive been riding my 05 zx6r 636 the past few days and it has drastically lost power. First off, taking off from a stop, I have to rev the bike almost double the rpms than normal to keep from bogging out. Also, when going through second and third gear, when I twist the throttle to get...

    I just installed my new vortex rear sets and I love them! But the rear brake line is now to long and I think I need a shorter one. Just curious if anyone else has had this issue and what you did. Thanks :)
