  2. Tire thread

    The ZX6R
    Been on this forum a year now and there’s two posts that are posted a few times a week. “What exhaust should I buy” and “What tires should I run.” We got the exhaust threads to link to but we have no tire threads so I’m going to start this here. Hopefully the idea will be appreciated and maybe...

  7. 05-06 Front Tire

    The ZX6R
    Hey, so the factory tire size for the front of my 06 636 is 120/65.. Although not a lot of tires come in that size. I was originally looking at Michelin Pilot Road 3's but they don't come in that size for my front. The closest they come to in size is 120/60 and 120/70.. Neither do Dunlop Q3's...
  8. Tire pressure for commuting?

    The ZX6R
    What tire pressure should I be running for daily commuting and my weight? I weigh 270lbs. I'm seeing a lot of people run like 38 in the front and 40 in the rear, but it seems like the numbers are spread out quite a bit. Tires are Dunlap Qualifiers.
  9. Rear brake pads DRAGGING!

    Mechanical and Technical
    Okay, I changed my back tire last night. When I put everything back on, I notice that my rear brake pads are in contact with the disc. In fact so tight that I cant even get the bike to move backwards in neutral. The bike will drive forward with a little throttle. I asked my buddy, and he told...

  12. WTH Tire Question

    The ZX6R
    I'm not trying to start a tire thread as there already plenty of those, but I was wondering what the hell is this in my tire. After lunch today, something told me to check out my tires and I did and found this. I know its metalic so its either a nail or part of the steel belt of the tire. I...
  13. ... Just wow.

    The ZX6R
    You will not believe what happened to me. I rode my bike to a city 3 hours away from home to visit some friends. I thought might as well get one more good ride in before I have to put the bike away for the winter. I even parked in the back alley to avoid any vandalism. I got up this morning and...
