Default ZZR600 Build Thread

So mine is basically where I want it for now, but since I'm joining late...I'll post some pics of the progression. Compliments and criticism are both welcome, I like to hear other's opinions.

Back story, the bike belonged to a buddy of mine...but he had a kid on the way and needed it gone. I worked a deal with him since I was selling my car.

Current mods are:
- Two Brothers full system w/ shortened muffler
- DynoJet Stage II jet kit
- BNC Race Filter
- GP shift
- Shorty levers
- Vortex swing arm spools
- Pro Tek frame sliders
- Hotbodies undertail w/ fender eliminator
- Custom headlight
- Removed grab handles
- 07 ZX-10R front and rear bronze rims
- PU steel rear sprocket, +2
- Sunstar front sprocket, -1
- BikeMaster folding bar end mirrors


Here it is the night I got it.



Right off the bat, I knew it needed to be raised back to stock height (I love the twisties, kinda hard with it that low!) the windscreen and tail lights needed some change...that and I needed mirrors. Keep in mind, as much as I liked naked bikes...I thought this thing would look goofy with no plastics...so I rolled with it.

Here it is after some updates. Shorty levers, painted the tail lights using red stain glass spray paint, painted the lower portion and undertail black, smoked DB windscreen and OE mirrors



As much as I loved the pearl white, I needed to change it b/c 1) White was getting over played and 2) the paint needed some TLC...the pearl made it hard to touch. So, I started removing the plastics to paint it a gunmetal metallic. While looking at it, I decided I liked it naked! So the conversion began.

My buddy fabbed a bracket using the majority of the front fairing stay and using some fog lights as headlights.






The front kinda stuck out too far and those foglights SUCKED for night time riding. So the next update came. Got the headlight off ebay and painted it to match. Also added bar end mirrors, Kawi green rim stripes and Kawi green tank decals





As much as I liked the flat black, it kept scuffing since it wasn't cleared. That and I found a pic of a green SV that I REALLY liked with a stripe down the center. I wanted a blue though with the same stripe. I wanted to get close to Monterey Blue from the 370Z.

Also found some plugs to cover the holes where those hideous grab handles were. I also touched up the taillights since they had faded into pink. This time I cleared over them.

Here it is now!








Thanks for checking it out!

Thanks a lot guys, I get flamed on occasion on other bike forums for doing the fighter route...glad I found somewhere where its a little more welcomed! Haha

It was a good looking bike fully faired, the paint was off an 07 Lexus IS350...Starfire Pearl White. It needed some work, but when I saw it naked...just like as if it was a lady, I knew it needed to stay that way! =D

As far as future plans, it currently has a lot of work done to it...I'll add it to the OP. Not sure what I want to do next. Maybe when I get some extra cash I was thinking about doing some 05-06 636 front inverted forks and an upgraded rear shock for better handling.

As for the mirrors, I can't find any others that I like. I thought the same about the round ones..I tried some oval ones and it looked awful. The smaller rectangular ones that hang down a bit look good, but I can't see anything out of them. I actually use my mirrors so I stuck with the round ones, lol. They seemed to function the best.

Yessir, its a hotbodies as far as I know...I found a few others I like more, but it will do for now. It came with amber colored LEDs in a strip on each side of the under tail for signals. If you scroll up and look at the rear pic from when it was still white, you can see the little holes where they were. I took them out because on occasion, one would burn out. I'm anal about little things like that...having a random bulb in a strip burn out was driving me crazy so I just took them out, haha.

After looking at another ZZR build. I may just do an 03-04 ZX6R tail section.

Ok, so after looking around...I think I'm going to go single swingarm. I can't find it again, but I found a pic of a ZZR my same year-ish with a SSA from a VFR.

I went thru a few threads, if anyone does have a pic of an 05-08 ZZR with a SSA...post it up!

Now to find a wheel that semi matches the 07 ZX10R wheels...

Nice bike man, I have a similar front headlight on my 02 zx6r, how did you set up the mount to have the cluster look flush with the headlight?

You can't respect triple digets untill you have nothing to hide behind.
