Howdy gang!

I'm into a conversion project that involves the rear end from a 02 Ninja GX6R. What I'm trying to obtain is the geometry pertaining to the mono shock. Specifically I need to know at what angle (degree) the mono shock is mounted when the bike is straight up and has no one on board.

I haven't been able to learn this from any online manuals and can't find anyone nearby with this bike. So I would be very appreciative if someone could grab a protractor and ruler and compute that for me and let me know. Or if someone knows a better way where I can find that info I'm all ears:)

Thank you
scoty

Would a 2000 zx6r work or does it need to be a 02?

I don't know...is a 02 a lot like a 00...? I have no idea.
Identical bikes.


OP, what do you need the angle of orientation for anyways? What bike is this swingarm going on?

Need a little more info in order to help you out there, bud.

I'm trying to morph a 76 KZ 900 into a something like a streetfighter...kinda. For safety/handling reasons I want to get that angle as close as possible to original.

Crazymater91...per LarryJ they are identical...so if you have a 00 or access to one you could measure I'd really appreciate it.
