    I've been wanting to complete this project for a while now - this years the year. I have a '07 silver/red combo ZX6R. I want to throw on new fairings, and am strongly leaning towards the White/Red combo. But the matte black/red combo isn't bad either. I'm fairly certain I'm going the...

  3. The ZX6R
    im thinking about buying an 07 zx6r with 10,000km on it. I checked it out and it's in decent shape, it's lowered about 1.5 inched for the current owner who is a girl. Anything I should watch out for before buying?

    Hi guys im new to the forum and looking at potentially buying an 05 zx636, 15500kms on the clock. The bike seems to ride fine and the guy is offering it at a good price. Has been regularly serviced etc. I have some concerns about the fairings however. The RHS faring has a hole at the bottom...

    Just got my 2011 ZX-6R brand new yesterday. I traded my 2009 Vulcan 900 Custom Special Edition in. I am hooked! The acceleration is intoxicating and the throttle response is unreal. Riding position takes some getting used to, but nothing is perfect. I plan on putting on LSL Crash Pads, does...

    Per the owners manual of my 2011 zx6-r i'm not supposed to take it above 4000 rpms for the first 500. My problem with this is that on the interstate cruising speed at 60mph in 6th gear is 5500-6000 rpms. Should I avoid the interstate as not to exceed 4000 rpms? how strictly do i need to...
