I wouldn't be able to tell the difference at a quick glance.

Yup. The ZX-6RR's look exactly the same. The differences are all mechanical. Besides perhaps the color scheme. My RR for example comes only in all green. As for the R from the same year has more than one scheme. However in color green, the belly comes painted black (R) instead of green (RR).

What are the mechanical differences other than a smaller engine? Does it have a higher redline or better suspension?

- The 6R has 37 more CCs so a longer bore stroke
- Slightly different compression ratio
- 6R has slightly more HP and Torque and higher top speed
- Believe disc brakes are slight different as well
- Different trail
- In the '03/'04, I believe the RR has a slipper while the R does not
- RR has harder suspension and adjustable swingarm pivot

The '05 and '06 RR's were also equipped with a slipper clutch. I'm not sure if the sister model R had one or not. I'm almost certain that it didn't. Another thing, the '05 and '06 RR's have a space for a steering damper on the left side of the frame. I have an Ohlins installed in such a configuration. I don't have the picture of it on my phone.

The 05' and 06' R does come with a slipper clutch. I just learned that myself after having the motorcycle for 7 months.

The '05/'06 6R has a slipper clutch, the '03/'04 6R did not while the '03/'04 6RR did.

You've kept it in a great shape. How many miles do you have on it?

It's got around 18k miles. Although i just picked it up the first of the year. its got a few cracks and bruises but it cleans up nice. My 04 has a spot for the steering dampener on the side as well. Although until now i never knew why that spot was on the side of the frame so thanks for clearing that up!

My 99 also has the spot on the frame and I too did not know why until reading this thread. So thanks for that info lol :2fingerlol:
