  1. BRAKE PROBS Newbie, 2015 ZX6R 30th An. Edition

    Mechanical and Technical
    I've had this bike for about a year since I've had it I've had to pump the front brakes to use them. For example, when I come to a stop and squeeze the handle there's nothing, I have to squeeze, squeeze, squeeze then they finally work. I've bled them, don't know what else to do. Someone said...

  7. Yikes! Blasting oil from air clean system oil receiver.

    Mechanical and Technical
    This occurred on my '09 ZX6-R9F recently: So about a day ago as I did my pre-work bike check I noticed that something seemed unusual about the way my bike was idling. With no FI light on, no oil or fuel or coolant on the ground, and no strange odors or smoke I decided to head down the street...
  8. Suggestions for 09 zx6r engine

    The ZX6R
    Hello all, I was looking for some advice on possible issues on my bike. I have been hearing somewhat of a ticking noise coming from my engine.

    I have a 07 zx6r with 10k miles on in I bought it today and I rode it for a while with no problems, but later when I came back to ride I'll start it but when I shift to 1st to take off it stalks out would it be the clutch cable or something worse.

  11. Common problems on a 2007 zx-6r?

    The ZX6R
    I was looking into buying a 2007 zx-6r but wanted to know common problems to look for. I know that this year had problems with the head gasket covers (which if I have them changed does that fix the problem?) but wanted to know if there was anything else I should know about. I was also looking...
  12. Bike wont rev to high rpm's, no power.. WHY??!

    Mechanical and Technical
    Hi everyone, I recently acquired a 2001 zx6r J1. Initially the bike ran fine, I have put about 500 miles on it since I got it. One day, out of the blue, started the bike and the exhaust sounded really low pitched like a v twin. The bike ran but would not go over about 10,000 rpm's. All I...
  13. Not all cops are diks

    Motorcycle Talk
    I was on my way back from the Casino, and I won $100. I was happy as hell on my way home but all of the sudden my bike gets stock in 5th and 6th gear and it won't go any lower than that. My first reaction was not to panic. I tried the clutch and it seemed to be working fine, so I figure it must...
  14. 2002 Kawasaki ZX-6R Won't Crank?

    Mechanical and Technical
    Hey everyone. Recently I had to take my bike completely apart because the original frame was bent. So of course I tore the bike down to nothing. After an hour of taking things apart I finally got the new frame in and every bolted to it (swing arm, forks, engine). I knew I would have major...

  16. 08 zx6r revving problems

    Mechanical and Technical
    When I start my bike it will only rev to 12k rpm. Then after I ride for a few minutes it will only go to 10k then 8k. Finally it will stay at a max rev of 6k or 7k and I am stuck on the interstate barely going 65mph. If I turn it off and start it again it will go right back to 12k, but then do...

    The ZX6R
    Recently picked up an 01 ZX-6R for cheap that seems to be a bit of a lemon. Anyhow, it supposedly had an HID conversion done, but the headlights won't turn on at all. I currently have the fairings off so I could try to get a look at what was done, and this is what I've noticed; -bulbs look...
  19. 2005 ZX6R something tapping

    Mechanical and Technical
    Hi everyone I am new to this and was wondering what my tapping might be. Whenever I am going and I pull in my clutch I feel a tap on my feet through my pegs. I also hear it and I can't tell if it is coming from the motor or maybe my chain is slapping the swingarm. Any input would be greatly...
