06 636 from OHIO

Hey guys, Just bought an 06 zx6r last night. This is my third bike, First was a 74 cb750 cafe racer, Then an 03 FZ1. She needs a little love here and there but doesn't look like anything major. Two biggest things I have come across so far are the valve cover is leaking and the rear brake mount has worn a small groove into the swing arm. Somehow the previous owner wasn't aware that it was missing a bolt which caused it to rub the swing arm when applied. I have all new plastics and had plans on doing all flat black with green highlights. But when I was taking all the old plastics off I kinda fell in love with the "street fighter" look. So not sure which route I am going now. Looking forward to learning more about my bike and the community.

Welcome to the forum.

Bring your bike up to Mid-Ohio July 10th, have some fun in the Novice group.
Would be great to meet a forum member.
Black with green, sounds good. LOL..

Need pictures, or it didn't happen. Not to mention the rear brake issue would be easier to see what your talking about.

Ive had my 06 ZX6R for about a year and I love it. Ive owned Suzuki and Yamaha before and I gotta say I really like Kawi allot more than the other ones. Very good bike.

I've owned 3 of the Big Four, not Suzuki. And as much as I love my '15 ZX, I have to say my top 4 favourite bikes in order, descending, would be Honda CBR 1000RR, Kawasaki ZX-6R, Yamaha YZF R1, and Honda VFR 750F. Honourable mentions go to another R1 for its riotous hooligan moxy, and Ducati 996S for shear stiffy inducement.
