What do yo want to do with it? I'd look for new fork oil and suspension upgrades, along with Stainless Steel brake lines. But thats just me.

Wow I'm sorry guys I didnt even give you any dirrection for the help

Its a 95 ZX6R with a bolt on muzzy can, K&N filter, Dynojet stage 1 jet kit, stainless brake lines, and the usual lousy fender eliminater with flush mount signals.

I'm looking for performance but the bike is a bit well old looking.
But looks only matter if you are parked right and i would rather be riding so the hell with looks.

I found a good site for the ZX7R I worked on for a friend and was hoping there was something like this for my bike.

Spend the extra money and get Ohlins oil. Possibly 10w or 5w. And if you're really into it look into new springs and valves, etc.

Pick up and Ohlins rear and you'll be a cornering machine.


I'd also look to shed weight anywhere you can. Chain perhaps...go to a 520 if you haven't already. And if you've got silly cabbage laying around get some lighter wheels.

those would be my starting points too. racetech springs and everything inside the forks, Ohlins shock on the back, sintered pads for front brakes and maybe a valve adjustment just because it might be time to do that anyway.
