ZX6RR vs ZX6R

I know that 2003 ZX6RR is shet compared to 2003 ZX6R. But Trevor at BK says that this years 6RR is better than the 6R and that if he had a choice for "street use", he would pick the 6RR over the 6R. he says the 6RR has the slipper clutch and better suspension than the stiffer 6R.

i had a chance to ride a 2004 GXSR 600 & GXSR 750, and Ninja ZX6R today. i decided to get a 6R but when i went to BK i decided on a 6RR over the 6R. do you guys out there have any opinions ?? i never had a chance to ride a 6RR but i am just assuming its a better bike ?!?

any opinions would be welcomed.

thanks

I dont know anything about the older bikes, but the 06' 6RR is supposed to be more setup for the track where the 6R(636) is supposed to be more of a street machine. Its still a supersport with a bgger displacement, but the suspension is not setup for the track like the 6RR is. Either bike is a good choice. The only way to know is to ride them. The 6R is a little cheaper than the 6RR too.

the 6RR is/was a homologation bike (599cc). Lighter internals here and there, higher compression, slipper, etc. But in 2005 the 636 (ZX6R) also got the slipper clutch. really the 636 was to extend a long in tooth platform until this year when the engine was redesigned. But I would've bought the 6RR also.

Your first mistake was buying a Kawi. Shoulda gone with the mighty 750.

I heard the RR and the R were more comfortable than the CBR600. Is it true?

Well i have a 03 6RR, the only reason i got it was because i love the green and in 03 the 6R did not come in green. If i remember right in 03 the 6R came in red,blue,sivler and black. My friend bought a blue 6R 2 months after mine. Stock vs Stock he pulled me every time we raced. I went to the shop one day to get oil and oil filter for my bike and i talked with salesman. He said that the 6RR had track gears doesnt pull hard in 1 or 2 gear. (I AGREE TOTALY). But i can say this i out ran him on topend i went by him at about 171 or so he said all he could get out of he was about 162. In 04 kawasaki made 636 in a green pissed me off. I wanted so bad to trade in but i laid it down i couldnt get anything what i needed out of it so i kept it. Comin for someone who has a 6RR buy a 636 power is better and stuns are easyer with better gearing in 1st and 2nd gear.

The 6RR was built to keep inline with AMA racing standards to keep it running in a certain class. The 636, if raced in most organized groups, would have to be classed with the 750cc bikes. For street use, the 636 is a better choice because of the gearing and added torque (though not very much at all). The 6RR is geared more for track use, and for 03-04 models, it came with a slipper clutch, which was not available from the factory on the 636. Kawi did change that for the 05-06 model years, but now for 07 they are no longer making a 636. It was a short lived idea, and I think they(Kawi) weren't so happy with the 636 being labled a cheater bike. The additional 37-38cc's gave the Kawi an advantage over the other 600cc class bikes.
If you are not into racing, then go with the 636 for 06 and prior models. If you plan on racing, then go with the 600. That way you don't get your butt handed to you by the guys on the 750cc bikes. Either bike's are great for track days. Just my 2cent.

then you coulda looked like every other sheep out there that thinks a 600 isnt quite enough power for them but is scared of a liter... just messin

I sat on both at a bike show a couple weeks back and i honestly loved the way both of them felt. More so than the new R1's and even comparable to marko's coveted 750.

i agree with everyone.. get the 636 unless u wanna race it... not just track days.

and yeah if u want a 07 the 599cc it is... but brand new motor design... first bike????? Buy used.... Eveyrone whos ridden a while will agree.. itll save you more money then just loss on a new bike
