Get a Honda dude. Kawi won't fix tranny issues.Originally posted by iluvmysh
So before I jump right into buying one without knowing any background on this topic. I was hoping you people could enlighten me on what are known problems of
03-04 ZX6R and ZX6RR's
05-06 ZX6R and ZX6RR's
any help is appreciated.
The gears fail. Quite randomly. Many of the problem trannies have been those with synthetic oil used in them.Originally posted by kawinyc
i just got my 636 this season and am curious could anybody know exactly what is the problem with these tranmissions so i can watch out for it. thanks a lot.
A slip on will do the trick. The problem (at least with mine) was that the rubber padding in between the the hanger and the exhaust kept coming out. I got a Muzzy and the hanger is welded to the pipe, so problem solved. As for the nut busting on down hills, bumps and excessive braking, I strongly agree. I'm going to get some Stomp Grip soon, so hopefully that will take care of it. And yes, the transmission clunks. These bikes aren't as smooth as other bikes, but they're just as mean. If I were to by a new bike, it would definately be either the CBR 600RR or the 1000RR. Those bikes are friggin sweet. I've heard they're the best handling bikes on the market. If you can't corner on one of those, then get a cruiser.Originally posted by iluvmysh
Whew, that's reassuring to hear that the 03/04 are such solid bikes. I'd be changing the exhaust out anyways to probably a slipon, unless the problem lies within the header or midpipe. Any other input? Sounds like the general census is that the 03/04 is the way to go.
