    Hello all, I hope someone has done this and can help. I have been advised to change the linkage/dog bones to lower the rear and help the bike turn. All other race bikes I have had, i raised the rear to help it turn quicker but i have never had a modern bike like the new 2019 model. Has anyone...

    This last summer I bought a ZX-6R and started going to the track. I really enjoyed open lapping, and decided to try a race. (The MRA, a Colorado racing group, has a program called Super Street, where you get to race without going through the normal race prep of the bike. So it was a low barrier...

    As an MM fan, awesome end to 2017. 2018 should be just as exciting! Can't wait.

    This is my first post. :naughty: I am trying to figure out how Marc Marquez has his suspension set up, any ideas? I have been trying to figure this out for the past month. To me it looks like he is coming within fractions of bottoming out his front during trailbrake, but when he accelerates it...

    It was just a novice race, but gotta start somewhere right? This was my first time at MSR Houston so the rain helped me out a lot by putting us all on more even footing (plus I'm sure it drove a few people home who otherwise would have raced!). Anyways, got it on video for those who enjoy...

    Hey tech ppl, If I want to stream my GoPro video live from my camera over a track's wifi, then what would I need? Some type of signal booster? Is this even possible? I want to have live video of my races in the pits for my wife, family and crew. Ideas please.

    Hi, I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what years of wheels would fit a 2008 bike, ie will 06, or 09, wheels fit? also has anyone any experience with the cheap Chinese wheels on ebay? I'm a little worried about racing on them. Thanks in advanced, Charlie.

    So I saw some mention on here a vendor named thetwowheels for getting levers. I checked out their site and I'm definitely thinking about picking up a set. Problem is I can't decide if I'd like the GP 3D Shortys or the Racing Shortys better (from a looks standpoint). Anyone have picks of them on...

    So I've seen threads about this but never got the answer I was looking for. Who has the msj header for the 07-08 zx6r or any aftermarket header. I have the D&D exhaust for mine and love it but I want the header now. My other question is I'm assuming I'll need a PC then bc it will basiclly be a...

    Hi guys, I'm new here. Like I mentioned in the title, I am considering to get the ZX636R. It will solely use for track. At the same time I'm considering either CBR600RR or ZX636R. I got to express on how beautiful and well equip the ZX is. I understand that this is a forum for the ZX. I wish to...

    After two years of owning both a street legal and raced out zx6r, I have come to enjoy this bike very much, it gave me confidence as a newer rider and was forgiving as I made mistakes. I began my racing career on a zx6r but sadly I will soon have to say goodbye to my zx6r via Part out but before...

    Bought my 2006 last year in street trim with 18k miles and a few tasteful mods. I was able to get the seller down to $3k which is an incredible deal based on the condition of the bike. For reasons I dont want to get into, the seller really needed the bike gone. And no, it's not stolen. I...

    Here is the 2nd session of the day, I will post more as I get them uploaded. It's the first NESBA hosted track day at NCBike, so we were all learning the track. It's an awesome track, your on the side of your tire almost the entire length of the track, except the main straight and a couple...

    Hey guys, I am looking for a lower fairing that is meant for racing (holds 3 quarts) that fits a 2000 zx6r. I am running it with no upper/side fairings and the only one I can find mounts to those. Does anyone know if there is another lower fairing that will fit and can be mounted without...

    Anyone been up to NY Safety Track for a track day or race? There is an open track weekend on June 8th and 9th and I am considering making the trek up there, but would like to hear some ride reports first. Looks pretty gnarley with blind corners and severe elevation changes.
