Ok so I've decided to go fighter with my 2006 ZZR600. Most of the work is pretty much done, but when I dive into a project I like to post up what I'm doing to hopefully help others out before they attempt the same and/or to inspire them too.
Let's start with a mods/parts list:
Suspension and braking:
--front: 07/08 ZX6R forks & lower tree, CBR monoblocks & radial master, braided lines, 07/08 ZX6R rotors
--rear: 05/06 ZX6R swingarm, 09 ZX6R shock, stock links, ZZR rear master, braided line, 07/08 ZX6R caliper, 05+ ZX6R rotor
--wheels: 05/06 ZX6R
Frame and engine:
2006 ZZR600 "J" model, stock jetting with K&N air filter, stock engine with 43,000 miles, 07/08 ZX6R subframe and tail
03/04 ZX6R header, 07/08 mid pipe and muffler (CF Yoshimura RS-5), and a custom link pipe to join the mid pipe and header.
--ASV C5 brake and clutch levers
--engine covers sprayed gloss black with Rustoleum engine enamel
--frame and swingarm sprayed low-gloss black with Duplicolor engine enamel
--Protaper handlebars and risers
--HoHey top triple tree
--05/06 ZX6R stock sprockets 520 conversion (+3 teeth in rear compared to stock ZZR sprockets)
--Buell projector headlights (still trying to decide if they'll stay or be replaced)
--Third Eye bar end mirror (may buy a second one for the right side also)
--other random bits and pieces
--had to remove my 06/07 ZX10R OEM Ohlins damper due to the HoHey top tree, so I'm thinking I'll relocate it to the frame mount on the left side with a home made bracket.
I recently crashed my bike, but rebuilt my fairings and everything for reinstallation. I got the idea to go fighter, debated it for a while, got some inspiration, then went for it. I wanted the more upright seating, naked look, and overall different look than you see everyone else riding day in and day out. So love it or hate it, IDGAF.
Here she is. If you have any constructive criticism or suggestions, feel free to post them up. If you're gonna hate, then GTFO please.
Not sure if I'll keep the Protaper thingy on the bars or not.
The HoHey top tree is pretty cool. It allows you to use either bars or clip-ons. If you want to run clip-ons you install these aluminum plugs in place of the risers and install the clip-ons on top of the tree (recessed in that area so you don't have to remove the tree to swap over).
Still need to decide on my headlights, but this works for now. I wired them into my stock plug for the original headlights. I need to remove the rest of the upper fairing stay and make a bracket to move the gauges and headlights in closer for a better look.
