as a guy that races an R6, I can patently say it's because they suck as streetbikes.

Just curious, what kind of mirrors are those?

I'm looking to spruce up my '12 FZ6R a bit and the stock mirrors are definitely a bit much.

That looks really nice. I don't care for the stock FZ at all but yours looks great.

Do you happen to know which year ZX6R mirrors work?

I was digging around online today and nobody said specifically "these years work".

Also, was it a direct bolt-on or did you have to do a little modification with the holes?

Thanks!

I'll ask in a different way, lol.


Does lowering the front end 1.5" negatively affect the handling in any way? That seems like A LOT of a drop in the front, even with the front end of the FZ6's being higher up.

I ask because the clip-on's are a night and day difference between the stock set-up...and I may be getting ready to go this same route with mine and wanted to hear a bit of first hand experience.

Yes it will impact the handling. It will be more twitchy. Raising the rear or lowering the front in relation to one another will always have this effect.
