Old Bike (1st one)


Wrecked Bike (You like that 30 day tag?)


New Bike (current one)

New and mod it tastefully. Stretched and lowered bikes look like complete trash in my opinion. However, my opinion doesn't mean sh!t to you or your bike. As long as you do what you like to it and you think it's cool then go for it!

I've never cared for stretched bikes, but yours looks sick! How did you do the stretch? Kit or homemade? How did you lower the front? Sorry, just curious because that is the stance I want and I haven't found any kits to stretch a 600.

Unless you're drag racing...



Seems a lot like putting a spoiler on a front wheel drive ca... oh never mind.

I fail to understand why someone would want to buy a supersport bike. Something designed to go hella fast around corners - especially the ZX6R which was designed to feel as much as possible like a 250 MotoGP bike (read: bikes with some of the highest possible corner speed) then start modding it in such a fashion as to dangerously alter what it's good at.

Lets ruin the handling, and then cut away the cornering clearance. Brilliant.

If you're going to do something like that buy a ZX-14 which is meant to be a drag bike. Long wheelbase, huge motor, lots of low end torque. I've seen stock 14's pull high 9 second passes. Lower it and then extend the swing arm and you're into the low 9's. And once you start getting into serious mods (nitrous etc) I've seen high 8's. But that's straight lines and that's what it's good at.

You're never going to get anything like that with a 6... so why would you wreck what it's good at?

I just don't understand.

stretched out 6r = pointless IMO. the front tire doesnt even come up unless u clutch the hell out of it. but they do look good, but i think thats about all they got going for them.

i enjoy running the twisties to the best of my ability

Totally agree w/ sev. But thats just my opinion. He prolly just like the look of a lowered- extended 07 6r better then the look of a lowered-extended zx-14. Looks nice, i'd just prefer something else for my tastes. But if you like it, do ya thing doc!

To each his own I suppose. I bought my 07 ZX6R without the intentions of riding twisties or drag racing but I like the look of a stretched and lowered bike so I stretched and lowered it and now I'd like to think I'm even cooler than I was :)

Probably because he wanted a zx6r and not a 14, or a cruiser. Wow, wasn't that simple to figure out...

And that's why he "did that" to his 600cc sport bike...

True that. People can tell me my bikes paint job looks stupid and I can believe them and think of other colors to paint it, or I can be like "Doesn't look any stupider than yo face!" knock the douche out, and love how kick ass my bike is.
