My name's Chancelor and I'm new to the site. I've recently just bought my new 2012 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R. I've grown up around motor sports. I raced BMX growing up through elementary an middle school and went professional. When I started high school I got introduced to motocross racing. I was close to going professional before graduation but I joined the United States Navy instead as an Aviation Ordnanceman(Bomb Technician) I've rode all kinds of bikes growing up from my dad's old Harley to my best friends R1. I've saved up enough money to buy my own bike and I've always wanted a Ninja. I've personally always been a fan of the 600 so that's what I went for. I look forward to talking to some of the Ninja veterans here and hope for some advise on building my bike to its full potential. I've recently went through an expert riders course and am currently scheduled to attend a racing course. After attending tons of courses for learning this new style of riding and gaining more experience over time, I plan to make my bike a head turner in the end. Thank you and hope to here from you guys and gals ;-)

Welcome to the site Chancelor, and sweet looking ride!! You wont need much to bling that bike up, it already looks the goods, except maybe that cannon of an exhaust!
It will be interesting to see what Kawasaki comeup with the new model ZX-6R, will it just be a carbon copy of the 10R, or will it be more unique?

Yes the exhaust is not my favorite feature of the bike even though it adds more performance from the previous stock undertail system. It will be the first thing to go. Only problem is idk which one to replace it with.

Yep, too many choices these days, all with similar performance gains. Check out as many pics as you can and get the one most pleasing to your eye, not what everyone else thinks is the best!

Welcome and nice bike ,I thought I'd stop at just an exhaust but filter and power commander later I'm now looking at race headers haha enjoy your bike they're definately the best 600 at the moment !
Also you definately need a tail tidy ,get rid of that nasty plastic hanging underneath the rear seat unit !

Yeah I ordered the eliminator the same day I purchased my bike. I was not feeling the fender lol. I've already looked into the PCV and a Two Brothers exhaust but I'm not sure what kind o filter to get. Any suggestions? And thank you for the welcome! ;-)

I've got a k+n for mine ,but k+n pipercross and bmc are all good I just prefer the k+n I've used them in all my bikes and on my cars too !
Also if you're getting exhaust and filter I would def recommend a pcV with a custom map for your bike makes the mods that much better having correct fueling etc also I'd go 1tooth down on the front sprocket too !

Im not sure about the sprocket thing. I don't wanna lose any top speed on my bike. I know it's good for acceleration and good for torque an power but I am a fan of top speed. I'm not going to add more teeth though.

Racing motocross I had less teeth for that quicker take off cause there weren't that many straights to need top speed.
I raced motorcross and supermotos,loved the starts haha dropping 1 tooth will only loose you between 3-5mph top speed but I understand what you mean .here in England the police are everywhere so top end doesn't matter too much ....unless you know the roads well ;-)
