I loved my ZX-6R. I kept it close to stock, except for a few convenience modifications.
One thing I wasn’t been tempted to do was modify for power. For example, the bike had the stock pipe and stock jetting. Frankly, it had enough power for my capabilities. I had lots of room (and still do) to improve my lap times by becoming a better rider and, whenever I had a few hundred extra dollars spare I’d spend it taking the FAST course again, and got more speed improvement than by changing the pipe for an extra few horsepower. Not that I wasn’t tempted by the more interesting sound of after-market pipes, I just didn’t reach that point.
