Picked this up on Monday. Its a 2000 Kawasaki ZX-6R J1 in the Firecracker colour scheme. It has 14K On the clock with full service history and every MOT to prove the mileage.

Plans are


  • Re-paint wheels. Currently deciding between black or the origional red.
  • Tail tidy and undertray (Already ordered)
  • End can of some description.
  • Get out and enjoy riding the thing!



Heres a couple of pictures from the dealers website, Ill get a couple more tomorrow after a good scrub.





Got a tinted screen to fit tomorrow. Will get some better pics up soon.

The wheels have peeled and the exhaust hanger/pillion peg has started aswell.

Did that the first night I had it on the road, Bloody sacry the first time you do it, But you soon get used to it.

Just ordered a Pipercross panel filter for it tonight off ebay, And bidding on 3 end cans. (Knowing my luck, Ill probably not win any of them!)

Got some TFR, Autosol, De greaser and borrowed a preassure washer to give it a good clean tomorrow. Going to gp mad and strip most of the fairings off and clean behind them.

Spent all morning cleaning it. Spent nearly an hour just polishing the exhaust (Great stuff that autosol stuff).

Sadily didnt get any pics as i was rushing and just wanted to go out riding it.

And now it needs doing all over again!!!

Getting some at the weekend, Tail tidy will be put on when the undertray is put on.

Had the fast bike stickers in a draw at home for a while. In two minds weather to keep them on now.

Had it out before, sounds great with the can on. Just got to get it re-jetted.

Going to take it it back to get a slight oil leak sorted on the rocker cover under warranty.

Another small mod today, Motrax tank protector.



Wanted a clear one, but thought that the black would look better.

Much better with the race can. Needs a black double bubble screen and DEFINITELY a set of R&G crash bungs.

Then an undertray with integrated tail tidy.

Not a fan of the seating position on J model 6rs. They feel very upright, and narrow.

Decent bikes though, makes a very good day in day out bike that could still whoop a trackday.

Not a fan of the double bubble screens, Got a tail tidy on order should be here in the week.

The seating position doesnt bother me too much, Only thing that winds me up is the bars that hold the fairings on, where they go over the handlebars.

Looking at the R&G crash bungs, but they look like you have to cut the fairings and I don't fancy doing that.

Suppose paying nearly 100 for a few peices of plastic is a small investment, incase of it falling over.

Goes better, but it does need rejetting.

Filter was 25 off ebay.

Will be taking it back tomorrow for a small oil leak sorted on the rocker cover, Its just started to seep through.
