Liking the bike, I've got a 2015 ZX6R, with some similar mods. Where did you get those crash protectors/ block type sliders that sit behind your R&G bungs? What make , where purchased ,how do they fix on etc?
I got rid of the R&G's as I returned from a run and the LHS bolt had snapped leaving the bolt thread in the block, freaked out a bit but my brother managed to EZ out the remainder of the bolt and I've refitted the standard engine mount bolts both sides as just don't trust them now. But would like some form of crash Protection. (Don't mean to hijack your thread)! Keep up the good work,enjoyed reading.
Portland01, I'm not sure if Andy0 has had an occasion to test these 'engine case guards' out, but I unfortunately have, and I can announce they hold up fantastically.
I had heat stroke last summer whilst riding in Lassen Nat'l Pk, California; I was attempting to pull out of a parking lot on a 100 degree day (37.78 C) - at about 6500-ft (1981m) elevation, the road summits at 8500-ft (2591m) - when attempting to pull out of the parking lot my hands spasmed on both clutch/brake levers. Down I went at about 5-10mph. My engine case guards, my Woodcraft frame sliders and Rizoma pegs on my rearsets kept the bike completely up and off the tarmac. Minor scuffing to the above parts, but everything else was left untouched.
And to be honest I scuffed up the opposite side in a super slow
1st lap out in the morning during track day. Everything stayed off the pavement, excluding the sliders. Now the plastic 'shell' of the case guard has its own pt#, thus one can replace if so desired. 2015 Kawasaki NINJA ZX-6R (ZX636EFFA) Accessory(Engine Guard) | Babbitts Kawasaki Partshouse
