05-06 ZX-6RR Shock Linkage Explained

All of this information is out there but it's scattered across the interwebs so I figured I'd put it all in one place. I've seen a lot of people looking to switch to this lately and paying a fortune ($80-100) for the "special" RR linkage. On Partzilla when you click on a part# it automatically pulls up a list of all the bikes that part belongs to. In the instance of the Unitrak and dogbones for the RR linkage, it is...

39111-0008 ROD-TIE,SUSPENSION

2011 ZX600RBF Ninja ZX-6R REAR SUSPENSION
2012 ZX600RCF Ninja ZX-6R SUSPENSION-SHOCK ABSORBER

If you're using the 6RR shock then you'll need the 11mm spacer to compensate for the shorter eye to eye (130mm). Note, this spacer is exclusive the the 6RR and usually has to be special ordered. A stack of washers from Home Depot does the same thing.

**However, if you're still on the 6R shock (135mm) you can skip this part and keep the 6R spacer (6mm).**

2006 ZX600N6F Ninja ZX-6RR FRAME FITTINGS (FRONT)


**When swapping make sure all your bushings and bearings are cleaned, lubed, operate freely, and that you tighten everything to factory torque specs.**

I pieced together a RR linkage off of ebay for under $25 shipped, $9.80 for a 07-08 zx6r unitrak and $15.00 for 04-05 zx10r dogbones. Because I have an aftermarket shock with adjustable ride height I didn't need the spacer. Happy parts hunting

So...... You do not explain why or if there is some magical advantage to using the RR linkage instead of the R?

Is the knuckle configuration different between the two that there is some benefit in geometry/travel with the RR over the R?

39007-0045 for the R model and 39007-0006 for the RR model for the knuckle itself....

IS there a width difference as well at the shock mount?

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

**Consult you local suspension professional before making suspension or geometry changes to your bike. I'm not one.**

Bushing at the knuckle is the same width.

So why would one want the RR knuckle instead of the R then? or the linkage arms?

wasn't that the point of your post

Or is this just information that for 99.9% of the users will be useless?

Again, consult your suspension professional. They'll be able to explain.

Possibly. I've actually calculated it's more like 99.991%. RR parts are hard to come by, this makes it much easier.

I am well versed in suspension knowledge and without some factual measurements of how changing the knuckle to a different ratio one....... I highly suggest not to!

Again--why post up information that would seem to lean towards.......... Hey look what I found, this is the cats meow for your rear suspension on the R or RR............ or atleast that is how I interpret your opening post

But since you follow up with zero fact, zero measurements, zero anything........... I can't understand the post or thread at all unless it was just intended for RR only users to be able to find a new knuckle...........but why would they need a new knuckle?

So again....you lost me with this seemingly meaningless pointless thread with no relevant substantive information.
