    I have a 2013 and it has already happened to me a couple of times that while trying to perform a quick launch, if I give it too much gas when changing gears, the front end will wobble. The wobble is not severe and I've had no problems getting it back into control, but it is kinda worrying...

    Ive Just picked up a 1997 zx6r in beautiful condition with just 10000 on the clock and 1 previous owner. I was just wondering if those with more experiance would reccommend my next course of action, I am considering updating the suspension. Im hoping it will make it feel a bit less "boxy" on the...

    Just wanted to throw this on here in case anyone wanted to know how to install the Ohlin Steering Dampers on a 2013+ zx6r. It's really easy and straight forward. The most difficult part I found was bolting in the bracket to under the triple tree because it was hard to get access to the bolts...

    Hi guys. Came out of my house last night to find 3 guys trying to steal my bike. They bolted. Police came, helicopter came, dogs...looked like a riot. They were nowhere to be found. I saw a van that doesn't normally park there so stagged on in my car to keep watch. Within an hour two of them...

    Hello I am new to this forum. I acquired a 2006 ZX6R with 5k miles on it from a guy who dropped it in his driveway. I wanted to custom paint whatever I bought anyway so I didn't see the scuffs as an issue. From the drop though it appears a bolt located under the top portion of the triple tree...
