Bought this 636 as my wife's learner bike/future track bike.

Hey guys, I just picked up this 05 636 the other day for my wife to learn on and when shes ready for a Ducati it will become my first track bike.

Has anyone on here ever tracked one of these or have any experience with them? I have never owned a Kawasaki and know nothing about them but it was a good price and a well kept bike.

Thanks

I have got the 2013 636 and I track that a lot and is a fantastic bike, a lot faster than other 600s, keeps up with the 750s easily and gives 1000cc bikes a run for their money on tight twisites and tracks!

Here is a pic of mine.

It's a good bike. They have amazingly strong motors for a 600. They are a bit portly as most kawis are but it's solid and stable.
Thanks from Thangdinator

Ex-GF has one as her race/trackbike. They are known for throwing rods and are very sensitive to oil. Don't run super lightweight oil and make sure it's always topped off, even slightly high (Track/race use, doesn't really matter on the road).

Really solid front end and tons of torque, great bike overall.

I used to run a 2009 ZX6R; loved that thing, and will always have a soft spot for Kawi.

When I think of those 636s, the first thing that comes to mind is the motor...and in a good way.

If that's the factory black color then that's a 2006 636. I had that exact bike. Had a 2004 636 before that one. In all honesty, I liked my 2004 better....Probably cuz it was modded n the 06 was stock lol

Anyway, reliable bike, low maintenance, -1/+1 gearing with a 520 chain and let the fun begin.

double would you do the -1 up front plus one rear for a 2007 zx6r?
