How do i turn a 2006 ZX-6R into a Street Fighter (need some info on parts)

Well pretty much im planning on dropping my bike a few times (at low speeds on flat parking lots) learning how to handle bikes very well. My problem is i ride at night and i would like to find out how to mount those cheap universal headlights to the front (i would need high and low beam) and i need to figure out how to put turn signals on the sides of the bike. SO far ive ordered all my sliders. Or does anyone know if they make specific kits to turn my bike into a street fighter? and should i order anything else for protection besides rear spools, frame sliders and the grip sliders?

When you plan on something, it will probably happen. Better to plan on being the best and most knowledgeable rider you can.

If you are planning on dumping it, I would say, change your plans...

Get a crash cage...

As for headlights, automotive fog/driving lights are popular (and CHEAP)... Position one at a slightly higher angle... Splice into your existing high/low switch and you are good to go... I would explain in further detail, but from the sounds of it, you'd probably be better off having someone else do it for you...

Crash cages or sometimes called stunt cages are great as long as you don't plan on hitting the twisties hard. Otherwise it will be like riding my chop... scrape SCRAPE DRAG SCRATCH!!!

If this guy, who is planning to drop his bike a few times in the parking lot, is planning on carving the twisties... I am going to start walking... EVERYWHERE.

Then again, I got $5 saying this guy is never heard from again on this forum...

I dont want to drop it, im just trying to play it safe in case i do while i learn to be able to do tricks. im not posting this for me trying to learn how to ride a bike on twisting back roads. I can do that fine. No need to walk everywhere, sorry you lost your $5

Thanks for that link

Im just trying to find out where to get parts and how to mount them on my bike to keep it street legal without the farings since i will need new mounting spots for mirrors and signals and headlights

Planning on something means that you are working towards making it happen... AKA, it is your intent to crash... Being prepared for something, however, means that you have identified a potential event and have taken precautions, mitigating the risk... AKA, you might crash, though you're trying not to...

Obviously this is an argument in semantics, however you are posting about modifying your unwrecked bike into a streetfighter... after you wreck it... Therefore, it seems as though it is your intent to crash your machine...

Given your response this is not your intent, but your choice of wording says otherwise... Anyway, love streetfighters...

I wear full gear always. I dont plan on crashing. I'm worried about the other people on the road.
