  • Hi from Newbie in West Yorkshire

    Hi There, I've just bought a 1996 ZZR600 and love the bike, the ride is superb, although cosmetically, it is far from perfect having been dropped once or three times it is good mechanically, I think/hope, however there is signs of water in the oil which after reading my manual, I'm hoping is a mechanical seal job, if anyone who can shed any light on this job, I'd very much appreciate it.

    Welcome to the site.

    Unfortunately, I'm not familiar with the ZZR 600.

    Hopefully some one will come along soon that will have some information.

    I have neither the time,or the inclination, to explain myself to a man, who rises and sleep under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner, in which I provide it. I'd rather you just say 'thank you' and go on your way.

      Welcome aboard Longway. Like Big O, I can't help with knowledge about your bike. Howerver, water in the oil is probably most often caused by a blown head gasket. I would probably also investigate the water pump to see if there is a seal that could let water past and into the crankcase. Some of the latter year Kawisakis also had an integrated oil cooler running through the radiator. There are a few members here that might have some better ideas. Hopefully they chime in soon. I think around that time period the ZZR600 in Europe was designated as the ZX6, or something similar here in the States.
