The purple beast! 2013 zx6r race bike

Just a for fun build thread, from bone stock to race bike. Going to take awhile to complete the build but one step at a time.

The day I brought her home with 800 miles


Few days later had my first track day at HPR, felt really good on the new bike. Way better than the 2005!


Installing the rear sets


Test fitting the Leo!


Mocking up paint ideas....


Second track day at my favorite track, PMP, was running race pace!


Finally saying goodbye to the street life!







More to come! This will never end haha. So ready for the 2016 season

LOL that would be great!
It's a very pearly purple and green. I decided against the silver belly pan, I think continuing the purple will look better.

I like your idea of doing a mock up of your paint scheme. I would do a handful of them and compare which one you like.

Thanx, I needed a way to put my ideas on paper so I found a picture of a bike that had a paint job I liked on it, printed it, and threw my own ideas at it with sharpies! I'm sure there are better ways to do it, but hey, it worked


Our last ride until Race School 4/1

Doing custom work for the body work install! Almost complete, needed more custom parts for the upper to fit perfectly.
Going for a free track day tomorrow! Can't wait to try her out again, last day until race school!

Photobucket is down at the moment that's why they aren't working! The working photos are on tinypic.

Custom spacers. Armor bodies fit well but not perfect.

It's got a few fitment issues but better than hot bodies!

Got everything fitted up but the belly pan... We will probably have to send it back and get another, it isn't the greatest fit :/

Made it to the track day and had a blast! I love this machine!
