Hi, new to the forum and ZX6R's
Based in Warwickshire, UK
I have a 1999 G model ZX6R track bike as l gave up riding my Ducati 748 on the road.
The ZX6R's been a bit of a project over the winter and getting ready for life on the track. First track day on it will the 19th July at Mallory Park.
Jobs completed so far are:
Swapped the seized 6pot Tokio (8/12 pistons) for some 4pot Nissin brake calipers which l rebuilt and painted with new SS pads and braided hoses. Bled the Adelin 20X19 RCS radial MC with folding leavers that came with the bike.
New fork oil, bushes and seals
Rear shock linkages greased and cleaned
Rear brake - new braided hose, cleaned up
Racing rear sets
K&N air filter
Oil and filter change
repaired the fiberglass track fairings
Bike came with a set of wheels with brand new wet tyres but l have just checked them and found that the wheels are from a F model with the 19mm axle
now need to find some new rims from a G model.
Also plan to change the rear shock for a newer model that is not 20 years old. I have seen a rear shock from a 2017 ZX10R with a 309mm eye to eye spacing and wondering if that would fit?
Forum has been very useful already.
