I've been stopped twice, and got a ticket once. The cop that wrote me was one of my fraternity brothers...i was fuckin pissed, he was bein a bitch that day. The other was a state trooper and I told him it was so ppl would double take before killing me. He was on a bike so he let me go, and suggested I change em. I told him no and he said ok and left. They dont seem that green in my pics, but if u see them in person, theyre the same shade of green as a green traffic light, just alot brighter, theyre HIDs too. I'll post a front light pic in a sec after I switch to my laptop

EDIT: heres 3

But...I love the green kawi wheels that came on the 08 6R, and I'd definitely be open to a white bike with green accents and green wheels, or black and green....I just don't know, so many dang choices! By the way, love your green on your bike!!!
well here's something to help with your indecision..........

http://zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=72962&page=61 - according to this link he added a swingarm from an 09, Rear shock from an 09 Zx6r, BPF forks from an 09 Zx6r. I myself is debating to add the fork swap to my list.

Thanks for the rep

I got the idea from cgifly2 on the zxforum. The swap is fairly straight forward.
If you decide to do it let me know and I can help with a few of the decisions that you will have to make. The only real issue is that the stem on the 09 ZX6r is longer. You have to press out both stems and substitute the 10 stem to the 6 triple trees The only issue is that the 10 stem is just a couple thou smaller. I used an anerobic adhesive when I pressed the 10 stem on. Swap the ignition switch, use the 09 6r axle. The wheels both use the same bearings. I am 165 lbs and the springs on both the rear shock and the forks seem to be just right. I may have to revalve a little as the compression damping is all the way out. ( you guys will love these mods) they are easy, cheap and very effective. I no longer Jones for a gen 4.

My second tune with the comp werkes read much higher but there is SO much of a difference in each dyno reading that I can't say how big of a jump it made. I know that my low and mid range picked up ALOT and I can definately feel it as well as dyno showing(different dyno though) it made more.
I have yet to hear one person on here that went to the comp werkes say they were disappointed with the power it makes. If you don't want a custom tune cause of the $, use the Two Brothers single VALE map off of dyno Jets website. It is really close especially if you are catless with the Comp Werkes pipe.

This is a very tricky mod.
I even thought of doing it myself, a couple months ago a guy was selling the whole front end of a 4th gen, and i mean whole... forks, trees, axle, mc, brake caliper, lines.. the whole deal... Im glad the 6r worked too.

Now i think depending how much you will spend on forks/trees/axle you might be better off buying some cartridges for the stock forks, which are better than the bpf.

(not trying to say anything bad about the bpf, i really like those forks and i think it is a pretty cool mod)
