The ZX-6R and the 636 are the same bike. The 03-06's are commonly called 636's. I wouldn't buy an 05 636 honestly. A handful of them have problems popping out of second gear(Ask Dudewhrsmybikes) A few 06's have had the problem, but for some reason, it's far and few in between.

If ya go the ZX-10 route, definatly get the 1st gen(04-05). . . . .or the 08.

Nope, it's the same bike. Says 636 by the Ninja sticker of the mid-fairings, and on the tail it says ZX-6R.

A lot of people look at the 2nd gen 10R as a downgrade, and a number of owners have sold one to get a 1st gen. I think there was even one of two on this site. The 1st gen is to the wall, while the 2nd gen is a bit more refined.

well i mean, i was only thinking zx10 for the torque...if its the same in both gens then i'd be fine with a decrease in HP as long as its still smooth on the power band

Backwards. The ZX-6R is 636cc's, while the ZX-6RR is the 599cc version. . . . 03-06 of course.

They all have had USD forks since 03, but the RR got the DLC coating.

If torque is what you're looking for though, don't bother with the RR.

They look way better in person. If you wanna come over tomorrow I think im free after 6 I'm fairly close to where you live. Maybe we can stunt da 50 too.

if you have credit you'll never ever wipe the smile off you're face when you roll off the lot on your 08 Fireblade
