  1. Thanks for all the comments , i think i will go with Satos's , have to wait for the payday though:)
  2. @boredcol WOW , great price but they dont have them for my bike:/ @warregi The only thing holding me back from getting Satos is the price , i think they're the most expensive ones but probably worth it as i haven't heard a single bad word about them.
  3. @AryM I've checked on ebay alredy , but only US sellers got them but i will keep on looking because i like them alot:) @Easty Gilles were my first choice but i read some mixed comments about them so i decided to ask here:) Some people complain that they brake easily during a crash and heal plates get loosed. btw I've got a Zx6r too:)
  4. Nice! , never heard about LighTech before , shame they dont sell them in UK:/ and shipping from US would cost 20% tax + delivery;/
  5. Hi everyone, i just had a crash recently and my stock rearsets were completly wrecked on both sides so i figured out that it's a good time to buy some aftermarket ones but i can't decide which one:/ I'm thinking about sato's or gilles , vortex also seems to be good choice but they are not available here in uk. I'm looking for something solid that won't fall apart after a crash and also have a wide range of adjustability( hope i'm not asking for too much:] ) Any advice would be highly appreciared:)
  6. Apex Mfg makes a fully adjustable clip-on which is very reasonably priced. Because of my neck injury I needed to get my body a bit more upright on my R6. I didn't want to go with a superbike handlebar conversion kit, so I tried the Apex clip-ons. You may have to change some cables and/or trim your windscreen, but otherwise the installation was very easy and the bars are awesome. You can see more on this product at this link: http://stores.sportb...ail.bok?no=7685 I like those clip ons , think i will try something like that. Thanks for info:)
  7. Hi, I'm trying to make my bike more comfortable to ride . I'm qiute tall (6'3) and ride a 09 zx6r. Apart from adjustable rearsets what else can i change? I though about moving the handlebars a bit forward but don't think they are adjustable. Any advice will be appreciate:)
  8. What should i use to clean the pistons and the inside of a brake caliper. I've heard that wd-40 might damage the seals.
  9. I'm asking about this because i've been trying to learn how to blip the throttle properly while holding the rear brake. Can't get it right with the stock brake lever , maybe it would be easier with the short one.
  10. Thanks for the info , can't wait for the weather to improve
  11. Which company u book ur trackdays with? Which one can u recomend for a beginner?
  12. I will recive my exhaust in the next couple of days , hopefully i will not have the same problem as you but it's good to know that there is a solution to it just in case. Thanks for good advice!
  13. Thanks mate , waiting for the pics!
  14. This is exactly what i'm worry about:/ Are you touching the exhaust with your boot or is just because it's so close to it? How may miles have u done before it happened?
  15. Hi, I'm wondering if anyone here got a m4 exhaust. Are they worth buying? I'm planing to get one for my 2009 zx6r. I love the way it looks but im wondering if its not fitted to close to the foot peg. http://www.indysuperbikes.com/M4_Exhaust__M4_SlipOns_GP_Series_Exhaust_Kawasaki_ZX6R_p_4006.html Anyone here got it on that bike?
  16. I havent done any of the levels yet but definitely will do 1st one this year , just waiting for the winter to pass. It's a good idea with the stands , need to try that:) And i find it easier to do the turns at higher speed aswell but i think thats normal as the bike is more stable then. As always thanks for your advices:)
  17. Hello again, I've got this weird problem. When i'm trying to hang off the bike doing a right hand turn it just feels a bit ackward and strange compared with the left ones. Does anyone here have or had similar problem? How i can overcome it? Or maybe it's just in my head and i simply need to stop thinking about it?
  18. And i'm doing all of this while holding the front brake right?? How long it took you guys to get it right?
  19. Hi I want to learn to downshift properly , i saw twist 2 DVD and i know that u have to clutch in , open and close the throttle , clutch out but i got one question , when exactly during that procces should you downshift? My guess is that you need to do it simultaneously with opening the throttle but i would like to be sure about that before trying it out:)
  20. Road riding only atm but i'm planning to start doing some track days and go to CSS as soon as winter is over. I'm always trying to lock my legs on the tank so i think that my arms are fairly relaxed most of the time:) I will try to improve my counter steering and throttle control for now and see how it goes:) Thanks for your help.
  21. Hello everyone! I've just signed up here and would like to get some good advice. About 4 months ago i bought my first "big" bike which is 09 zx6r. I've read alot of things about cornering including Twist of the wrist but lately i've got a feeling that i,m going backwards. Is it because i'm thinking about too many things when approaching th turn(counter stering , lean angle , hanging off the bike , keepping my weight on the oposit footpeg , looking into the turn). maybe i should concentrate on one thing at the moment and when i'm confident with it move on to the next one , if that's the case which one of those is most important for a beginner? Or maybe i should get different bike because someone told me lately that supersports and superbikes are not good for learners because of the body position. Any advice would be appreciated:)
