I Ride: 2006 636
New to site

Hey everyone!! 4 years ago I had a zx12r and joined a forum dedicated to that bike. It helped me very much as an owner and rider.
I picked up a 636 the other day and knew I needed to find a forum so here I am.
As a new member I am open to any tips, tricks or advice from fellow members.
Thanks in advance and keep your knees in the breeze.

Joining a forum is always a good idea. There's a wealth of information to be found here. Modifications (present and planned) are always welcome. Pics are practically mandatory!

Welcome!

It looks like you have an 05/06. Best upgrade for those is new front calipers, and a new front MC while you're at it. Most people do 07-12 for both pieces from a donor ZX6R, and it greatly improves the braking.

The only other upgrade I've done to mine is actually none. I put tires on it and gas in it.

Never ride faster than you can stop

They ride a lot better that way that with tyres in it and gas on it.

Yeah, I saw a guy's bike that had gas on it. It shortly was on fire.

Welcome to the forum.

Get the manual, and hang out.
Yes the brake mod with those calipers and a brembo master is freaking amazing.

Welcome. Pics, it didn't happen..... one is not enough....

"Basic stuff fellas. Use your head for something other than to break your next fall."

"There's this adage that we have 2 ears and one mouth so we should listen twice as much as we talk. Unfortunately with the Internet people have taken this old adage and turned it around. They have two eyes and 10 fingers so they think they need to post 5 times as much as they read. And since they have 10 fingers and one brain, they only have to think 10% of the time! "
