Hello, I've had my 94 ZX-6E for about 2 weeks now. I noticed that when it's hot outside and my bike is stopped the temperature shoots up. The guage gets pinned almost hitting the red zone. Is this normal on my bike? I know it's primarily air cooled but I have a feeling it shouldn't be getting that hot. Thanks for any responses in advance.

I thought those bike were liquid cooled?? If so, make sure the fan is kicking on when it gets hot. it would be a good idea to check the thermostat and also flush the cooling system.

You should buy yourself a service manual. it will be a big help on anything you plan on doing to the bike. If you get lucky, you might be able to download one.

Go to ebay and do a search for "ZX6 manual" or buy a Haynes Manual. You will want "2146 - ZX6 D & E, Ninja SUPERBIKE, 600cc, '90 thru '00" http://www.haynes.com/naordin.html
