I'm sure most of you here have seen my multiple threads on trying to get my 04 zx6rr running again, last thread I finally checked my compression and found it was way low, and that my intake valves weren't properly sealing. I'd decided to scrap the engine as it was past repairing, but I finally got around to dropping it out of the bike, pulling the head, and taking a couple of pictures for your enjoyment.
Needless to say, this is hilarious. I can't believe this thing ever ran with this much carbon buildup, no wonder I had zero power up top, the pistons and head are hardly recognizable.
And, to further my bad luck, here's a picture of the unfortunate event that on Thursday for me, I've been really sick the last week and drove home in some ferocious rain. I met a guard rail, it didn't end well for my baby.
As much as I loved this bike, I'm done with it. My next couple semesters are going to be rather excruciating and I'm not going to have time to travel back and forth from school to home to put a new engine in it and trouble shoot it, so she's just going to get parted out. It's a shame but, from what I've seen most special edition bikes really don't hold much excess value anyway :/
