Hey just wondering if anyone can give me rough idea how many kms I should get out of stock tires on 2007 zx6r.. The bike has 2200km and I believe they are original tires?

depends on what they are and how you ride

I kept my stock BT-14 tires at 35 front 39 rear with lots of high speed turning and freeway rides and got 7000 miles out of the rear and 9000 out of the front. neither was worn to nothing but the wear bars were showing and my wet traction sucked.

I now have Michelin pilot road 2ct on back and power on front, the rear has 2000 miles now and shows virtually no signs of wear and traction in wet and dry is phenomenal no matter the lean angle. The front power has only a few hundred miles on it so I don't know how it will wear but traction is crazy.

check the date of manufature on those, you really don't want to be riding on anything older than 3 years. Plus it sounds like they've been sitting for a while so they probably have flat spots on them.
