Bought the ZX6R plasma blue 2006 model about a month ago. I am in love with it! My room mate bought his GSXR 600 the same day i bought my bike. This is my first bike..and wow what an impression it has made on me!

I found out about this site from a fellow kawasaki 636 rider that I met at a 7-11 today.. so im lookin forward to hanging around here!

I am making a concious effort not to ride with sandals anymore! lol I've heard stories

Wecome fellow VA rider. Yeah, toss the sandals before you ride! Get you a jacket and gloves at least to start out for some gear. That thing is a rocket that can teach you a lesson real quick. Ride safe and enjoy the hell out of it!

I disagree, especially about Magma being faster. Magma is the slowest color out there!

...only reason I decided against getting a new (flat matte) blue '06 is because it's hard to maintain that finish

Welcome to the site. Get some gear or be prepared to get harassed about not wearing any. Either way, ride safe.

I have an 05 TI which has that matte finish and it's easy as hell to keep clean. Anyway the Tang yellow 10 is the fastest :D which is what i'm workin on tryin to get
Anyway desiprinze02 Welcome and ride safe too many new riders go down tryin to prove themselves. Don't be that guy.

I would like my black fairing on the bottom to be the same plasma blue as my bike.. how do I go about doing this? And will it be expensive?

You can get the matching paint, the codes are on here somewhere. Shouldn't be a problem after you find the paint, especially since yours is matte rather than cleared.

All Black is STEALTH, so that is why Black is faster....j/k it don't matter they all are great colors. I only chose black b/c if I ever wanted to change the color I thought black would be the easiest. Enjoy it...

Damn that bike looks awesome. I have no regrets for getting my zzr600. i love it to death. On the other hand though, there was an 04 636 sittin next to it for about $1000 cheaper. Now i'm getting some riding experience and learning the little qwerks different bikes have, and the what if's are starting to pop up.....

Thanks Money! I was thinkin of the zzr600 too.. but decided "hey what the hell".. this one rides brilliant! I prefer it to a gsxr600... the throttle on the kawa 636 is a lot more sensitive I feel.
