    I had a 92 zx7.......and never had any probs with the tranny. I had the bike about 3 years.

    I owned a ZX6E and it was a great all rounder. Good for touring, commuting and canyon carving too. Racing with it was a little wallowy =).

    I had it up to about 50,000kms before I started noticing that the 2nd gear was a little crunchy. At a stoplight, putting it into first gear was pretty notchy and shifting up was difficult if you didn't use synthetic oil, or were running with older oil. Traded it in for my current TLS so I don't have any feedback after 50,000kms.
    I love my squared off tyres. Torque rules.
