Because information and pics of proper race er6/ex650s are so rare, with their permission, here is some details of their machine:
The Kawasaki ER6 Supertwin has benefitted from further developments since being raced at the TT by Dan Kneen with modified radiators/ new electronics/ a revised airbox design & lowered subframe - visit the Track Electronics Facebook page & "like" to get regular updates on "Project ER".
Bike Spec is as follows:
- Chassis/ Frame/ Swingarm/ Air Intake/ Fairing Bracket - All modified & manufactured by local specialist bike engineers Silverback Manufacturing.
- Exhaust - Full Arrow System (hoping to run MHP developement system @ MGP)
- Front End - ZX6R (1998 G2) forks using Maxton Internals/ ZX6R Calipers/ Yokes witha Brembo 19x20 Master Cylinder & HEL Hoses.
- Shock - Maxton GP10

: Front end (1999 ZX6R forks/ yokes/ wheel/ brakes with Maxton internals - total cost £350).
: Subframe - designed & built by local bike engineering firm Silverback Manufacturing - its fully adjustable & allows us lower or raise the rear of the tank by 25mm & holds the ECU/ Battery/ Dalatogger/ Regulator -Rectifier.
: Radiator - everyone tells you needed a big rad at big £'s, we modified a GSXR1000 Oil Cooler to run below the standard rad - price including hoses £46, she's now done a TT, 4 Track Days & the MGP with no problems.
Hmmm, interesting comment about the oil cooler... considering I can't see how the cooler would be mounted and plumbed with the Arrow Minitwin exhaust headers, I'd love to get some more details. The plan is to get a used 06-08 race loom off of eBay (already sourced) and mail it off to blighty for them to do their work. The finished loom is apparently less than 1 pound in weight!
