  1. Stock Tire Pressure for Track Day

    Racing
    Hello everyone.. I am taking my 2018 zx6r to the track this weekend. Can anyone tell me what the tire pressure should be on the stock tires for track day? I will be going to Summit Point. This is my first time on track with this bike and second time ever in general going to track.
  2. Tire pressure for 06 ZX6R 636?

    Mechanical and Technical
    Just curious what you guys pump your tires up to. I'm familiar with what the service manual says for the front and rear but I'm open to suggestions or advice as to where I should have it?
  3. Auto Air Chuck

    The ZX6R
    This would have been nice to have these the past 30 years. Hopefully it makes it into production. .
  4. Advice on new tires

    Mechanical and Technical
    Hello all, I ride a '11 ZX6r. I am just hitting the 6K miles mark and both my front and rear tires need replacing. They came stock with the Bridgestone Battlax BT016. I commute pretty frequently on city and highway riding, probably about 75% highway to 25% city, on average. I am looking for...
  5. Tire Installation

    The ZX6R
    So I've hit a little bit of a snag. I need new tires to be able to get my bike inspected (which I currently have the ones I ordered in), but every shop I call seems to be weeks behind schedule on their work. Now this wouldn't be an issue if I had stands and could just bring the tires to them...
  6. So while we are all discussing tires...

    Racing
    I am still a noob at the track (only been doing it for 2 years and have maybe 18 track days total) and I am even more of a noob when it comes to suspension tuning, but I have managed to get bumped up to advanced and run an ok pace for my very limited experience. I am currently riding a 2010 R6...

  8. 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...

    I'm thinking about purchasing a set of wheels. The seller has a set (comes with wheels tires rotors and bearings) from a 2002 zx6r. I own a 2003 zx6r. Would they be a direct fit to my bike? Sorry for the newbie question. It's my first bike. Also thanks for the help.

  12. Why my tires do like this

    Mechanical and Technical
    Hey all. Just a question and I'm sure there's an obvious answer. Been riding canyons a lot lately and have noticed these strange 'melt' marks on the sides of my tires. I don't ride that hard, air pressure is correct and I kinda take it easy in the corners. What could this be caused from? The...

    The ZX6R
    Hey guys I'm going to be purchasing the Michelin Pilot Power 2CT rear tire soon and I'm wondering how much of a difference I'm going to be feeling.

  15. Noob question about tires

    The ZX6R
    First and foremost I'm a noob, I searched around first and wasn't able to find an answer. My question is: Do motorcycle tires screech like car tires when they're being pushed to their limits in a turn? :O
  16. Patching or Plugging tires?

    Mechanical and Technical
    I just bought brand new Pirelli Angel GTs and after 100 miles on them, my rear is flat due to a small diameter nail. Its very thin but it happened a week ago. I went to ride the bike today and noticed it was flat. Not sure how long it took to deplete the air from the tire but I'm hoping I...

    For those of you who saw (or will read) my first thread about a good track tire choice for myself, I apologize, but this is the newer improved thread. So I am looking to retire my Ninja in prep for this coming track season. This will be my first time out on the track, but I have been riding...
  19. Angel ST - Good Enough?

    Racing
    Bought my Ninja last season as a track bike from some dude who used it on the street only. The bike has a set of nearly new Angel ST's on it which I know are sport touring tires. Question is, what do you guys think about these tires for a track day? My buddy said "he knows how I ride and they...
  20. Quick help needed

    Mechanical and Technical
    Okay I'm ordering tires and yes I've done research. I believe that 120/70/zr17 will fit the front of my 04 zx6r. I was curios however as to what the numbers after those means. The only place I've seen it is revzilla but it confuses me. Also is 277 a decent price for power 3s? Anyways here's a...
