For the longest time after adding an exhaust and jet kit to my bike I could never get it running right, it was always too rich, and no matter how many times I adjusted the jetting I could never get it right...

Fast forward to this summer, when after graduating and starting my job I finally have some income and can afford to take care of my bike right, soo, off to Fast Lane to have the bike dyno tuned by Rick, I know, I know its more expensive than other places, but who knows the ZX6R better than Rick?

Got it back yesterday, and on the ride home, holy crap! Man, I have to learn to ride this bike all over again, good god this thing pulls like a freight train at all RPM's, and forget about it when the tack sweeps past 9K, I cant keep the front wheel on the ground! Rolling through a turn on the way home, slow, 1st gear bout 5K RPM's rolling on the throttle gently, and while leand over the front comes off the ground and stays off untill I straighten up the bike so I can get off the throttle!

That's good to hear. Your bike must've been the red one I saw sitting on the dyno yesterday?

Yep, she aint much to look at but I still love her. I am however wondering how yesterdays and the day before's heat and humidity affected the tuning, not exactly what I would call prefered conditions...
