Default 99 Kawi zx6

Alright, figured it's about time to start a build thread. I've had the bike for a couple months, never ridden it. Clean title, crashed, nose destroyed, fairings rashed, end of tail broke, leaking forks, exhaust damaged, right rearset broke, engine runs (sort of).

Any input is greatly appreciated, this may be a little slow going, I'm a full-time student and I work.

I'm open to ideas, not sure exactly what I want it to look like. It will not be a bobber, and I want some satin black and flat carbon gray, with bright glossy accents, maybe red or white.

Hmm got a thing for Kawasaki's?

Since you have chopped my bike you already know my color scheme, but the body on mine is gonna be pearl white with red accents.

Looking forward to see what you do with this.

Actually, the kawi thing is just a coincidence, we had 2 other suzuki's in the last year and there are 2 Honda's out of the picture.

I'm leaning towards all black or carbon bodywork and white stripe down the middle, white rims, white calipers, bright red frame.

yea i've heard really good things about the motor on this specific bike. Supposedly they last forever.

When I got it, it fired up right away, but it wouldn't rev up past 2 or 3 thousand and was surging really strangely. sounded great at idle and started easily. I took the cabs apart and they were gummy as hell. Then, bingo, some moron took the carb diaphragms off and when he put them back on he destroyed two of them. I haven't ordered new diaphragms yet but I suspect that was the only problem.

Starting to get some work done....finally.

Change fork seals and oil.......done.

Shorten the damaged yosh can........done.

I was a little hesitant to drill my OEM triple for bar clamps, so I made some aluminum inserts to fill in the back of the cast and stuck em there with some jb weld. Left the camera at home, I'll post pics later.

I'm also workin on my own frame slider kit. A lot of people say that if you put frame sliders on this bike, a lot of times when it goes down, it breaks the frame tabs off. So I'm making large brackets for each side that will distribute the slider force over at least 2 points. I'll prob use LSL Sliders for the actual crash pucks. I'm a little partial to LSL, I used to work for their distributor in the US.
