Hey there! I'm Emily, new rider and owner of a 2001 zx6r. I'm trying to learn everything I can about my new baby and am looking forward to sifting through all the knowledge here! I'm hoping to do as much maintenance and repairs as I can on my own (I've got some friends that are willing to help).

If anyone can point me in the direction of the owners manual or any other helpful beginners info, that would be great! I just want to make sure I'm doing everything I can to make this guy last through at least this riding season while I'm becoming a better rider...at some point I'll upgrade and pass this one onto another beginner.

Welcome to the family Emily! With proper maintenance that bike will be solid for many years to come. The service manual can be found unde. Home>service manuals section for free and will have all of the information you'll need. We're always here ton help, but please refer to the manual first as it will usually answer any questions you might have. Hopefully you've got your gear already and have taken the MSF course. Oh, and we need pics... The clan will go crazy without pics.
This post is worthless without PICS.....lol had to sorry..

Welcome the best zx6r forum on the internet.
Welcome Emily! Post up some pics!
Hahaha...my bad!!

I didn't have pics on my work computer, but I made it happen. Here you go!! (hope it works...it's been a while since I've posted pics in a forum like this lol)

Added a little flare...I have a slight addiction to superheroes and might have named my bike Steve Rogers (Captain America for those that don't know)

Oh, and I have taken the riding course, passed it with flying colors last weekend...went out Monday evening on my first real ride with some friends...opened it up a little on the highway and can't wait to do it again! I rode backpack all last summer with an ex...now it's time for me to have some real fun!!!

Welcome to the forum, Emily! It's a great place :cheers
Welcome and you will definitely enjoy this place
Hello and welcome! Congrats on the new bike!
Welcome Emily! Enjoy the upcoming riding season! There is much to learn. Look into Throttle Control as your first Steps towards becoming better at your new skill. The bike has plenty of potential, it is often the rider who limits it's possibilities.
