Hi guys ,
I don't post much on here but I'm always on here browsing.
I passed my bike test back in November and started out on my J1, to start with I was finding it difficult to control / uncomfy and had bad habits on the road from coming from an off-road bike background, and to be honest I was regretting buying it... But hey! You don't realise until you try it.
Then the more I rode it the more confident I felt and started to enjoy riding it instead of dreading coming to corners.
It got to the point where I wanted a more "sensible tourer bike" but I carried on riding through it and now in love with the whole sports bike package.

So I picked up my new 09 R9F zx6r today from a local triumph dealer at a cracking price, tons of tasty trick bits on her, 7000miles / one previous owner and all history present, brand new tyres. I honestly cannot fault it, it is so clean and tidy.
Done the deal today and so far clocked about 60 miles and totally in love. Such a step forward from the J1 which I thought was still a cracking bike....
Anyway here's a picture from when I got her home.



I'm not exactly sure whats standard equipment on the bike as it's got Ohlins steering damper and Akrapovic exhaust. So unsure what parts previous owner contributed to it.
Thanks

Nice bike! Looks like a great purchase. The akrapovic slip on was definitely added. Good choice by the previous owner :) the ohlins steering damper is stock, but it looks like they also added aftermarket stainless steel braided front brake lines as well. Another nice upgrade. Enjoy!

the frame sliders, axle sliders, the phone mount on the right bar.... not sure what the zip tie on the suspension leg was left on there for....looks like there may be a set of engine case covers on there, as well.

Very clean example. Pull the rear seat cowl (also added BTW) and check the subframe to see if the regulator/rectifier replacement has been done. Should be a dot of paint on the frame rail if it has. (can also be checked by having Kawasaki run the VIN #.)

Thanks guys, I will have a look for the paint dot in the morning.
A friend of mine who has been riding for many years picked up on the zip tie on the suspension leg, he thinks it's for the rider to calculate how much suspension travel he is using and can adjust depending on where the zip tie is placed after a ride?
Full engine / gearbox casing covers are on , also had them removed prior to purchase to check for damage behind and all is spotless.

Would this be the mark on the subframe to indicate the recall had been done?



Hard to make out on picture, look below the catch mechanism for the seat cowl and there appears to be a number 7 mark in blue.
