    07 zx6r gearing /track stuff

    hey all, picking up a 07 zx6 for my dedicated track/race bike tomorrow afternoon. its pretty much stock. wondering what the resident fast guys run for gearing on these at loudon and what parts and pieces i should be buying, as of now the plan is power commander, case covers, steering damper... do these bikes have a weak point i should be addressing before others? i heard danmoto exhausts are decent and cheap but i dont see one on their website for the 07s. thanks for the help guys

    Not the same year but I have an 03 with a two bros exhaust galfer lines and pazzos and think it's a pretty good street and track machine.

    I'd buy suspension before an exhaust

    I bought an exhaust because I was tired of listening to other peoples bikes, jim is a lot faster than me but the stock suspension will get you going pretty fast imho.

    Suspension will likely come over the winter, moving from stock sv suspension so anythings an upgrade

    No need to change the gears on that bike for Loudon.... NJMP maybe, NHMS definitely not.

    Ken Condon runs stock gearing on his 05/06 Ninja and is PLENTY fast. Get a damper and fresh tires-those are far more valuable then different gearing IMHO.

    Re: 07 zx6r gearing /track stuff

    Also- how much do you weigh?? The rear shock on the 07/08 are rather stiff- I love the way mine feels and have been very tempted to take it to the track. The bike handles great for being 100% stock. I'm 210 fully geared up.


    As for an exhaust- get the best- Akrapovic, Arrow or Leo Vince..............

    Just wring it out.

    And one of the first things you are going to want is a steering damper.

    Yes. There is a reason you see them on race bikes almost exclusively.
