  1. Brakes keep going soft

    Mechanical and Technical
    Hey all It's been a bit since I've been onto the forums. So last year I started having an issue with my brakes, more specifically my front brakes.

  2. 06 ZX6R Woes

    The ZX6R
    I bought 06 ZX6R last year that came with ~20K miles. I have not done much work on it except for replacing some plastic parts I damaged when lowsided on track days.

  3. Master Cylinder Air Leak, Bleed nipple seal

    Mechanical and Technical
    How common is it for brake bleed nipples to seal incorrectly? Does anyone use some type of sealant for the brake bleeders? I bought new braided lines for my 2014 zx6r and once at the track noticed the lever was getting soft little by little. I saw brake fluid was seeping from the master...

    Mechanical and Technical

  7. Q: Front brake M/C piston size on 05-06 and 07-08?

    Mechanical and Technical
    Question: what is the front brake master cylinder piston size on the 05-06 and 07-08 ZX6R. I need to know the size, even if they happen to be the same. And for bonus points: front brake slave piston size/s? I believe they are 34mm for all 8 pots for yrs 03-08, but looking to confirm.
