I have so many work to do in my company at the moment so the bike build is going really slow, but I should finish all of the big projects in around 15 days so I will manage to finish the complete bike till the end of the month

How do you like your zx6e?
Hey! How's that ZXD going?
We want to see some more pics!

Greetings and congrats for your project from Argentina!

Thank you for the interest, I have been busy as hell lately so I didn't have much time for the bike, but in 5-10 days, all of my mayor projects will be finished so the bike is going to be road worthy till the end of the month

say hello to Argentina for me, can't wait to visit your country one of these days :-)

I am quite happy with it

It was a nice and warm sunday, so after I finished all of my projects for today, I joined the lady who was working in the garden and fiddled around tha bike a bit



this is not the final handlebar but it is pretty close. This one is from yamaha xt 125, but it is to short for me, I need something with more rise





Damn sexy bike :-)

This season I am going to keep this stupidly loud joshimura exhaust, but next year, I have to put something more ear friendly :-)

Here is me on the bike, finaly :-)









Chekong the ergonomics





This would be ideal, but the final position will be somewhere in the middle

Like your upgrades & resto so far, they really are great all around street bikes.
Haa haa and I am not the only inmate still riding a ZX6D! There must be some connection between D model ownership and backyard rebuilds. Here's mine halfway through a four day marathon overhaul two weeks ago before taking off for a week long trip.



Been running perfect, kept mine closer to stock than yours, I appreciate the luggage hooks on the stock tail & helmet lock a lot. Comes in handy running around downtown Montreal grocery shopping

I'll be watching the thread for updates!

Come whenever you want, just tell me when, so we can meet for some beers if we are near

About the handlebar.. I think you need something more like this, maybe with risers...
This were the stock handlebars of my previous NX 150 (This is the best photo of their position I could find)



And a closer look of them when I took them off for painting..



Hope it helps..

This is the handlebar I will use, I just need to get some time to pick it up :-)



My last bike was versys, so I like the upright position. Thanks for the tip :-)

Nice bike you have there ;-) And I like the amount of beverages ;-) What happened do your rear blinkers? I had to saw mine off because I can't fit the givi lugage holders with the stock ones

I think it was N.American regulations for just the D model, but the rear blinkers on mine are stock. Here the integrated blinkers & tail did not come until 1993.

Oh, and mine has 170k on her now. The various bits are getting tired, but the motor still gives me a grin every time I give her full stonk

THE best single mod you can do though is a better rear shock. Either find a used Hagon or a ZZR12 (there is a big difference between a ZZR & ZX). The ZZR shock bolts straight in, with remote preload.

Any ZX6D questions feel free to ask me, in five years and 140,00km I have refreshed or rebuilt just about everything on my bike!

Thank you for the help :-)

I will definitely contact you one of these days when I put the carbs back on, I will have some questions regarding the carbs stock settings, so I will have to tune them up from scratch. I have cleaned them last winter, and they have been sitting in my drawer for the past year, and honestly, I forgot all of the settings :-)

Hope it helps with the ergonomics
