01 ZX6R









Beginner Stunter

Been riding for a few years now. Started in the dirt and raced motocross for a while. I have a 01 ZX6R with a few mods. Looking to starting stunting it. Would like to keep it as a daily driver never needing to get over 70mph. What gearing would yall rec? Looking at about a 65 tooth in the rear. Too big for the street?

Also, do yall know of a good web site to find a good 12 bar and crash cage? Or does anyone have any for sale for my bike. Any ideas would greatly help.

01 Zx6R? bad bike for stunts. unless you do wheelies on the streets not the lots.

"why?"

1. its a carbed bike. it's going to bog down alot. for the lots doing slow wheelies.

2. it's a kawi. the bikes frame and subframe is very weak. will crack and alum isn't a easy thing to weld back and be like new again. the bike will never be the same again.

3. theres not much parts out for this bike on the market anymore. I know kawi still has this bike on its market. i think its called zzr6r?

4. it's your daily ride? what if you crash and break something to the point you cant fix at the spot or have the money to fix. stunting is a big step.

don't get a big sprocket like a 65. you would cry if you had it that big. you would hate it the moment you 1st ride it down the street. 65 isn't a street friendly gearing. if your going to ride daily on the streets. i would go +7 at the most. even at +7 its a pain.

but if you insist you can try to find stunt armor parts here...(cage, 12 bar, round bar, stunt stay, rear hand brake or rear dual brake bracket, sprockets, chain, etc......)

i started on a carbed bike and quickly got myself an f4i. fuel injection is ALOT better when it comes to stunting.

i rode street with +8 and had no issues. bike still had decent top end and was very stuntable. Prodigy, F4iguy, k5gsxrman, and a few others on here street ride +8.

btw, coming from motocross, you should pick it up quick. i was all out motocross from 4 y/o to 22. then got my first street bike 2 years ago. started stunting a year and a 1/2 ago. if you were any good on dirt bikes, it'll all fall right into place on the street bike(stunting)

Well the bike is a salvage title and I already put a new engine in it so I will never get anything back out of it so I figured just have fun with it. I went up three in the rear and it wasn't enough. The frame is already slightly cracked also. I have a truck and im looking for another bike so this one is just is my best bet for a first stunt bike.

Good to know that my motocross skills will trans over to stunting. I also did a little FMX also when I played in the dirt.

I plan on stuntin my 06 zx6rr later on. But I have seen the guy w/ the blue 636 killin the slow circle wheelies.

But I do know those have more hp than mines.

trust me kawi are knowed to crack frames on any years. but the 04-06 are a much better bike to stunt with.

AsusRR,
Is it possible though for the 01? Like I said, the bike is salvage and already cracked. I will most likely be learning on it for a while and won't be doing any circle wheelies any time soon. Is the carb going to be starving at 12o'clock or just in low rpm's? Is there anything I can do to prevent this such as turning up the idle screw or retarding the timing? Its already advanced 4 deg so going back to stock will probably be a good idea i would guess...

So what about the bike set up? 20lbs in the rear.. motocross style handlebars better? I have a spare set with triple clamps... What about the timing? My bike doesn't even like to idel at 1.5k....

I learned on a carb bike myself. 99 zx9r, I think it was -1/+12 nobody would ever say to stunt it either but it did the trick to get slowed down and catching idle. Learn what you can on the bike you have and then buy a better one. If they make a crash cage for it then people stunt them. You can learn endos and burn outs and junk on that bike also.
