WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

Here's a pic of one of the euro piant schemes. It has been PhotoShopped to eliminate the fender and signals.

New R6

The new R6 looks great, apart from the horrible flame paintwork option, ugh. Choices, choices, black/silver or the Blue, but does the blue look different enough from my current blue R6. Has anyone else noticed that the black/silver R1 looks fantastic standing still, but never looks so good when you come up behind one on the road.

Back lights are OK but I like my aluminium 'diamond lights' more. Oh well, shall I sell my bike before the Winter or wait for the Spring?

FEAST ON THIS TONY.............IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN THIS ALREADY!!!

Kawasaki Introduces 600cc ZX-6RR Supersport Homologation Special
Along With 636cc ZX-6R

> a press release issued by Kawasaki Motors Corp. U.S.A.:

2003 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6RR

Class Leading Racetrack Performance



It doesnít take more than a glance at the 2003 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-
6RR motorcycle to realize that it was built to conquer racetrack
competition. Based on the all-new 2003 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-636
engine, the ZX-6RR has a smaller displacement of 600cc to meet
Supersport-racing applications. However, what the 6RR lacks in cc,
it more that makes up for in technological engine design and
overall performance. Exclusive to the 6RR to enhance racetrack
performance is a back-torque limiter which helps prevent wheel hop
during corner entry, a new close-ratio transmission, lightweight
forged pistons, and a longer rod length and shorter stroke which
produces higher revs. Furthermore the new chassis is more track-
oriented to match the engineís progressive design. Engine
performance and chassis design come together at the new central
ram air duct, resulting in a reduction of weight and improved
intake efficiency. Other major chassis refinements include a fully
adjustable Kayaba fork and shock, a modified riding position via
tank and seat modifications and a newly designed all-LCD
instrument panel complete with a lap timer stop-watch function
proving that itís no secret that the 2003 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6RR
was designed to meet race homologation regulations.

* Liquid-cooled inline four-cylinder DOHC four-stroke 600cc engine
designed for racetrack performance, a factory Kawasaki race kit
will be offered

* Lightweight forged pistons, five grams lighter

* Longer rod and shorter stroke produce high revs required for
racetrack use

* Clutch back-torque limiter helps prevent wheel hop during corner
entry

* Cylinder head lowered 10mm reducing weight and adding engine
performance

* Muffler housing changed from aluminum to stainless, providing
longer-lasting finish

* Intake/exhaust valves 10mm shorter, reducing weight and
improving high-rpm performance

* Ram air duct centrally located, reducing number of parts, weight
and improving intake efficiency

* Timing adjustable cam sprockets lighter and more compact with
optional race application

* Less lift in camshafts equates to more top-end performance

* Transmission ratios closer to meet the demands of racetracks

* Digital fuel injection replaces carburetors to improve
performance and reponsiveness

* Front brake assembly new and more rigid providing improved brake
feel over a wider range of operation

* Rear brake leverage ratio changed, improving brake feel and
stopping power

* New Kayaba inverted 41mm front suspension fork fully adjustable
and more rigid

* Stabilized performance over the entire stroke range is the
result of the new Kayaba fully adjustable rear shock, swingarm
pivot height is adjustable

* Riding position more aggressive due to modified tank, seat and
one piece forged aluminum handlebar, aerodynamic pillion seat
replacement cover standard

* Newly designed all-LCD instrument panel illuminates and includes
lap timer, stopwatch, 12,000-16,000 rpm adjustable shift light
functions, LED taillight



2002 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R

Increased Displacement and New Chassis Make The New Generation ZX-
6R the Ultimate Sportbike



The chief aim in designing the 2003 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R
motorcycle was to increase the performance of the bike, while
reducing its weight and making it more compact. By bumping up
displacement to 636cc, going to an electronic fuel injection
system, incorporating a centrally located ram air duct and
redesigning the valve train--along with uncountable other
changesgoals were achieved and the new ZX-6R was born.
Additionally, the cylinder head, cylinder crankcases, engine
covers and most of the other engine components were redesigned to
meet Kawasaki engineersí goals. Built around the new engine is a
chassis developed for the racetrack. New radial brakes, a
recalculated fully adjustable Kayaba suspension package and a new
riding position that accomodates the serious rider with the best
performing motorcycle in its class. A compact designed all-LCD
illuminated instrument panel, LED taillight and redesigned
headlamp make the ZX-6R more than just a force at the racetrack.
