So long story short I got a 09 zx6
I’m gonna stunt it and want to know what I can really do but I have a few main concerns and a few small. For starters
Where the fuck can I find a triple clamp to fit some risers so I can convert to dirt bike bars ( the stock triple has holes right where you need to mount risers )Second of all when I do find one what the fuck can I do with my ignition ? I want it to still look nice regardless of the fact that it’s a stunt build . I’m just not open to zip tying it . Third of all should I just not get a 12 bar on the rear ? I see no reason I don’t think the sub frame isnt strong enough on this bike to really be scraping like that . Lmk I’m open to all suggestions I’m not really money restricted

Passionrider has recently built up his bike and is learning to stunt. His bike is a few years newer, but same frame, triple, and sub frame, I believe. He should be a good reference.

The sick innovations is a pretty well known brand, also has the added bonus of integrated brake resevoirs which helps clean up the look and have less shit in the way to kick off by accident if you're jumping to high chair

edit - i guess looking at it again all 3 actually have the integrated resevoir feature. Never heard of them before now but that cock's one looks pretty slick

Most guys zip tie it inside the fairings so you dont see it. The nicer builds often have wired the ignition module out completely and mounted a small toggle switch along with a momentary push button for their on/off/ignition. If you want it to look cool just get a nice looking toggle/momentary and put it up front near the gauge cluster drilled through that plastic shroud. If you want it harder to steal in case somebody walks up to it parked outside you hide them somewhere out of sight.

The 12 bar reinforces the subframe a little, but at the end of the day unless you get a full steel sub frame you're just attaching the 12 bar to the aluminum stock subframe. The 12 bar is mostly to have a durable end piece so you dont blow up the whole plastic tail section every time you scrape or 12 with more than a gentle tap. Plus they just look kinda cool.

You can find everything you need on SICSHOP.COM or TACTICALMINDZ.

I would definitely get a full or half subframes with 12 bar. Trust me, I scraped 12 o'clock and it saved the whole rear end of my bike.

As far as your concern for clip ons, you have two options: 1) Dirtbars with risers (available on the 2 sites I posted above) or 2) fully adjustable clip-ons ( which I have on my bike from Impaktech)

Lose the key and install a rocker switch. You can put it anywhere on the bike you want. Even put more than one so people can't just walk up and start it. I have 2 switches. One hidden for main power and another visible up near the controls for ignition switch.

Only downfall of the main power cutoff.... clock is always wrong :p

Heres is my half subframe with integrated scrape bar.
wow I never even realized you could do a 12 bar like that and still be able to have a fully functional rear light . Did you fabricate any plastic like have to cut a hole for the bar? And the sub frame fits all the contents of the light / rear seat? . That’s a pretty sick idea . I don’t know how much of a fan I am of the clip one but I do like that I won’t have to reposition cluster. Now you got me contemplating the clip ons vs dirt bike bars

Yea man. I can help you out with an order for the subframe that I got. To me, it's the damn neatest 12 bar there is for our zx6rs and its strong as hell!

Well its really user preference. These clip ons are super legit and I love it.

Our stock subframes are 2 pieces. One part is steel and the other is aluminum. With this subframe you will replace the aluminum half with strong steel and yes my taillight is fully functional.

Some guys run normal clip ons with no riser or anything, but flip them over so theyre angled up rather than down. Feels way better than having them in the stock position and is a good cheap option but not quite as comfortable as risers or dirt bars. It also looks more normal as dirt bars completely change the look of a street bike depending on your personal preference
