I am hoping to go home with one this weekend. I did enough crying about having to ride the Katana that my husband is going bike shopping with me this weekend. I am also going to look at the SV650s just because I've only heard good things about it...but I am probably going home with the Kawi

New ZX6R

I just bought a Silver one a week ago and have 1k miles on it already and love it.. Just make sure ya make the front suspention to hardest for a more agressave feel and easyer wheelie

Kawi rules.

After you get it dialed in, you would be hard pressed to find a better 600cc bike. I have used mine to race and it is great in the corners (gee, I wonder if that's why California Superbike School uses them?). You won't go wrong IMLessThanHO

I brought it over to a friend and we spent 2 hours adjusting it up and wow what a differant bike. After putting the front suspention at max it feel totaly differant and easy to get the front end up.

Took it to a bike mechanic and he said the ticking sound is ther valve so my friend and I are going to atemp it today..

Got mine in april

I picked mine up in april ( my first bike ). Absolutley love it so far,....seems like i cant stop spending money on the thing though,.......one of my buddies picked up an f4i and i was wondering the power diff between the two ZX6R being carbuerated and f4i fuel injection,....and just plane old diff,.....needless to say we went head to head a couple times from a stop and both bikes were pretty much equal,.....i must say though at the HIGHER speeds my buddy did have a little pull on me,......he also weighs significantly less then me,......

I was gonna leave this blank,.....but i figured that would be to boring,.........

How much did you pay for your bike before taxes

I talked to a dealer here in Alberta he'll sell me a 2002 ZX6R for $9800.00

The ticking sound is nothing to worry about all the kawi's do that even my little 250R
