afaik the zx6r does not have the castle nut, it is just that nut on top. when i worked at a kawi dealer as a tech i never saw any kawi with anything else but a single nut on the steering stem, just torque to spec and go, unlike my honda which has the castle nut and a lot more effort required to set pre load on the bearings.
