Your definetly right about the info i can share.
I have taken apart a few ZX6R motors,and re assembled with great success. As in they did not fail again.
All bikes have been race only and i have never ridden one on the street!
Last night i removed a race tech gold valve kit from the front forks of the 09.
This is what you need to know
The rebound shim stack stays the same.
The compression stack is changed to a race tech C31 shim stack.
The stock shim stack measures
8 shims .1 x 32 mm
2 shims .28x 11 mm
2 shims .32 x 18 mm
1 shim .28x 24 mm
i made a video of the valve being removed from the damper rod.
I will post it on you tube later. and leave the link here.
You will see how easy the kit is to install.

Actually thats really helpful for me. i am buying a gold valve kit tonight and my mechanic is charging me 180 to install it. If its really that easy i may consider not sending to him.

I took the gold valve out so i could sell it, is yours a 09-12?
I could make a couple of short videos for instructions and post on you tube.
You would need the tool for removing the seal head (of course you can make it).
I used the rear axel nut off of a 03 Yamaha R6 and than used JB weld to secure it to a threaded pipe.
For the fork caps i used the largest crescent wrench i could find, put a layer of duct tape over the parts that come in contact with the fork cap so it doesnt ruin the finish.
Torque wrench is a must, without it you cant do the job.
The nut that holds the shim stacks and valves onto the damper rod must be torqued to 7ft/lbs.
The height of the overall rebond/compression and valve is also crucial. it can not be short. The damper rod runs out of thread and then none of the nut pressure will be on the stack.
I have a number of effective compression stacks made numerically, that is not physically. if i new what you were doing with the bike i might have some numbers for shims which could work. Your gold valve kit will come with a number of shims for making different shim stacks, you get the numbers for the shim stacks when you enter your race tech code on their site. You have 5 minutes on the site, so be fast, know your weight, bike weight, riding style, street, race, advanced, expert, novice, prefer soft prefer stiff. As soon as your done one entry do another and another, not that you need them all, its just good info.
