Well today was a bitter sweet type of day. I left the house and drove 2 1/2 hours to Morgantown, WV to meet the winning bidder (ebay) to drop off my 2004 CBR600RR. He loved the bike, we exchanged money and paperwork, then I was off. I then drove another 1 1/2 hours to Cumberland, MD to meet the seller of my next track bike, an 09 ZX6R with a few mods. I arrived a couple of hours early so I played on the phone and tried to keep myself awake.

The place that I was waiting had a sign on the door "Nobody wearing hoods or ski masks allowed". That gave me an idea of the neighborhood I was in. My other clue was that the houses across the street, that people lived in, had "Keep Out" signs on the front windows. In my opinion, if you need to have signs such as that on your house it may be time to move. :O

Anyway, the seller of the bike arrived, I checked it out, took a short ride, checked it out again, then handed over an envelope full of money and he handed me a title. He will be mailing me a couple of parts but other than that everything is final.

I'll try to get some better photos tomorrow once I remove some / all of the stickers. For now these will have to do.







Anyone know what this wire is for? I'm thinking it is so the bike will start with the kickstand down when the clutch is pulled in but I'm not positive.



It is geared 15/45, so -1, +2. Perfect!



Anyone have a link to where I can find the tool that fits this?

Good lord that chain, solid looking bike though. I picked up the 2010 zx6r today. She needs a lot of work, but will also be for track duty only.

27mm deep well will get that front sprocket nut off with a lot of pressure. The other step is 32mm but the 27 should be fine.

Congrats, but I hope its been maintained better then that chain looks.

Thanks. The bike has been setting since June or July, I'm hoping most of the rust is from getting wet and setting there. I hope.....

Here is a photo from "before" it got wet.

Personally I'd just ditch the chain.

Most likely will. I'm going to try to clean it first though just so I don't have to look at it all winter.

Yeah that looks better, but I'm sure you can work with it. The Honda looked worse when you got it haha and we all know how that one turned out.
Thank you, I appreciate that.

I just replied in your other thread and saw this one. Well this does look nice and you are familiar with the ZX6R's. This looks like a keeper. Love the green. but it needs more green. :)

Don't know about it needing more green. I do know that it needs less of his stickers and more of mine. :D

Damn that's a well set up bike. Good buy dude.
Really glad you went with an 09. Was going to comment when you were considering an 07 but I know finances can make these things difficult.
Let me know how that Elka goes, been looking at em as an option. :bigthumb:

Pretty sure your cable from the clutch lever will be the idiot switch signal.

Nice bike! Ohlins and Elka.... :yumyum:
