help everyone, im stuck and need everyone's honest opinon. i own a 95zx7. love it. lI love the way it looks handles, etc. Recently bout 4 months ago bought a 2004 zx636. love the way it handles, but really dont care much for the looks. the dealer had three brand new zx 7's from 2002 that he never sold. brand new. except the newer zx636 was cheaper because of rebates and financing. so my question is which bike is better as far as handling performance. would i be missing much if i decided to get the older but brand new zx 7? or stick with newer technology? dont care that the zx7 is older and harder to wheelie. your thoughts?????? I love the way the zx7 looks , always stands out just like the new zx636 but just dont like the way it looks. helllllllp

dude i own a 95zx6r,and a 03six3six,but the zx7r is a great bike.friend of mine owns 2)97.and 02.which is unchaged except for color scheme.anyway,636 will smoke it with the right mods.,and gearing.zx7r is the most powerful and easiest to ride for that class of bike,never rode anything as stable when hard braking,or putting the power down.and boy it puts it down,well my buddys' does both of his are muzzied out.

Hehe, Im not a fan of owning a 600 bike period, sorry personal preference. Butttt last guy that said "Oh thats just a 750, ill ride it" came back saying "I respect that 750, its damn fast" He was a gixxer1000 rider.
Why have they not changed the ZX7R for a long time is the real question you should be asking.

I'd say the better question would be 'why did the stop selling the ZX7R' but I already know the answer to that - it's because it didn't sell... PROBABLY because they never updated the fucker. Stupid Kawasaki. oh well.

Hehe, join the bandwagon of 600 buyers, bottom line is its a Kawasaki, all that counts.

I haven't raced a 636, but highly doubt it can beat my ZX-7R...wait.. I know it can't.

Stock 636's are putting down 111hp to the wheel and with full exhaust, pcIII, and velocity stacks they're getting 120+ on a bike that weighs 355dry-380ish wet. Stock numbers in the 1/4 are [email protected]
