So I'm picking up a 05 zx6r tomorrow. Pretty excited. Just thought I'd stop by and say hello. Any tips for a zx6r newb rider?

Thanks y'all, ride safe!

zx-6r

One tip. Go easy. I have an 08 6R and it is so different from my old bike ninja 650.

The 6R accelerates very quickly and shifts incredibly easily. Next thing you know you are way over the speed limit. Be careful esp on city roads.

Treat the bike with respect and you will have many hours of fun on it. But remember that she is very quick and nimble and always keep your eye on her.

Ride safe.

Did you just type "eh"??? I SHOULD neg rep you for that... :p

Welcome to KF. The bike you're getting is scary fast and will try to kill you at every opportunity. It's up to you to not let it.

so question...
I JUST got my 05 Zx6 636 today... rode it for a bit, and now the FI light is on.
It won't turn off. I don't have an aftermarket exhaust.
I JUST got it safetied yesterday.

And even when I turn off the bike, the FI Light is still on.
Whats wrong!?!?

I don't have an aftermarket exhaust...

PS. is there anywhere I can find the OWNERS manual? not the repair manual. The previous owner lost it... and I don't know anything about this bike.

thanks y'all

FI light on means the computer has a trouble code set, seek dealer for diagnostics
