05 kawi 636








New Kawi rider

Just got an 05 zx6. Coolant level is low. Do I have to take off the fairing to fill it up? And what is that little reservoir hanging right by it? Thanks. Oh and any suggestions on what exhaust I should get? The stock one sounds like

its your overflow!!!...i think

i dont need to take my fairing off for my coolant, but yours will more then likely be different

if you want performance get a full exhaust system, but if you just want a louder/deeper idle get a slip on and save about $600 lol

If it's your coolant res. then yeah you can. Do you know when the coolant was flushed last though? The side fairing doesn't come off, you have to prop the tank up. There is a bolt running into the frame just under the gas tank. Take those out, and also the one at the front of the tank by the triple. A small 2x4 between the tank and airbox holds it up perfectly.

The other little 'bottle' down there by your idle adjuster just catches excess oil blowby. There generally won't be much, if anything in there. If there is, just pour the few drops out.

As far as exhaust, just pick one you like. Most stick out a little too far(especially the Yoshi) so some people cut the down roughly 2 inches. 2Bros. sounds good, but IMO it's ugly, and expensive as . I should be getting one for free, so I'll probably run it for a while until I buy the Leo Vince.



BTW, you DID nail it in seconds gear to see if it slipped before you bought the bike correct?

we got a zx6 in the shop right now with a muzzy and I do not care for it much, its ugly to me and the sound is not as nice as the 2 brothers. The 2 brothers is sightly less ugly than the muzzy.

i guess it all depends on your taste on the exhaust. i have a slip on muzzy and i like the way it looks opposed to everyone with their akro's and 2bro's. if you want to check it out, lemme know. i like the way it sounds, not too loud and not too quiet.
