hey guys, i have owned a few zx7's, 2x -1990's and 89 and a 92, loved my x7's other than how heavy there were, moved onto a 01 gsxr 600 track bike, today i was offered a 1999 ninja 636 fully custom race built engine by nrc polished swing arm/ frame looks like new, are the 99 636 any good power wise? any flaws or problems with these bikes? thought i'd ask my old ZX7 friends see what you guys think?

If I'm not mistaken, the ZX-6R didn't go 636cc until 2002 in the UK and in 2003 in the US.

I'm not sure what you were offered from 1999 model year. Maybe custom work? Either way, ask to see a dyno and you decide if you like the power band.

2003 was the first year of the 636. 2003/2004 were the same bike with the really pointy nose.

It could be a 1999 ZX6 with a 2003/2004 636 motor? Maybe it's been over-bored?

I know the bike...

its white with polish frame and swinger...

he has swapped the engine and had the work done professionally by NRC...

I was looking at it myself but decided against it and bought a racing quad instead...

well now iam a little pissed, just called NRC where the guy said the work was done, and they never even heard of this swap they said a 03 636 will not fit into a 1999 so the fact the guy has posted it was done at nrc was all a lie :rant so who knows whats been done pretty sure iam backing out of this deal now i hate guys with bull s$$$ adds
