I Ride: ZX6R G2 (99)

When they do, it's really nicely controllable, even when they're fragged. They've never been favourites in the wet though.

I'd really recommend getting the wheels balanced. Just because one wheel didn't seem that bad on one circuit, on one tyre, on one bike...

I've felt the difference when weights have come off and other times it's made no odds. However, I do prefer having one less vibration or thing to worry about when I'm trying to go all mushroom cloud around a circuit.


The best advice I ever received was "Just look pretty and try not to break anything."

1999 ZX6R (G2) - Pipewerx exhaust (dB killer removed) | Dynojet Stage 1 | K&N air filter | flushmount front LED indicators | Clear LED tail light with integrated indicators | Scottoiler eSystem | Pyramid Plastics hugger | HID headlight | Stubby levers | HEL braided steel lines | 07 ZX6R radial master cylinder | Bar-end mirrors | Double-bubble screen | Crash bobbins | one hell of an anal-retentive owner.
