Below are a few photos of the two 2009 ZX6R Race Bikes I have essentially built from the ground up.
The most recent build is the Green bike with 2013 race bodywork from my old 2013 Team Green race bike which I turned back into street bike and sold when I retired from the Marine Corps last year.
-I bought the 2009 bike from another member here and quickly found out after buying the triples were bent, calipers needed rebuilt and it started make a racket in the top end after 1 session at a track day....turned out the motor was bad.
I tore the bike down to a bare frame this spring, getting new triples and rebuilding the calipers. With the 09 motor out, I talked with KWS Motorsports and was contemplating a superbike build, but I got lucky and scored a 2014 636 motor for a good price. KWS suggested shaving the head with appropriate headgasket and adjusting the cams.
-For tuning, I used the 09 harness, airbox, injectors, and the Kawasaki Race Kit ECU with a Dynojet quickshifter. We mapped the bike with one tune for both MR12 and 93 pump unleaded. Mike Godin spent at KWS spent about 3 hours on the tuning to get a solid and reliable A/F ratio and tune.....numbers in 90% humidity and 100 degree temps were 134 whp on 93 and 140 whp on MR12.
-The 14 motor externally is identical to the 09-12, with the water temp sensor changing from a 3 plug to two plug and different diameter. We simply retapped the 14 head to accept the larger 09 sensor. While at it we removed the thermostat.
-To run the 13-current bodywork, you will need to change the ram air duct and fairing stay...the 09-12 is one piece while the 13+ is two pieces. You will also need to mount the side fairing brackets to the frame, which involves drilling a hole on the inside of the frame for the bracket mounting....the motor must be removed or dropped down to locate properly. You can probably jury rig some other way, but I wanted to use 13+ OEM brackets.
-I also prefer the 09-12 rear tail section....the subframe is the same from 09-current zx65 or 08-10 ZX10R.....all you need to do is either cut the 13+ battery tray or get an 09-12 battery tray. I did the latter....
-Other mods include:
-Elka triple adjustable rear shock resprung and revalved by Thermosman.
-Ohlins 25mm cartriges Revalved and resprung from forks by Thermosman
-Dynojet Qshifter sensor
-Dual Carbon race brake pads
- Leo Vince Full Exhaust
-Motion Pro throttle
-SS front brake lines
-Graves block off plates
-2014 ZX6R 636 motor with shaved head, gasket kit.
-Michelin EVO slicks 120/190
The white/black/camo bike is a myriad of parts and is my primary bike to control ride on and will be used for Endurance racing this year.
