Finally all the waiting paid off. The snow is gone, the roads are clear. The last few days of riding has been great!!! :D

Not sure if the zx6r enjoys the cold all that much though. It is bogging between 6-7k rpms and if I am not carefull after idling at a traffic light, it sometimes will bog and die completely when trying to take off...

Is this due to the cold air causing the fuel/air mix to become too lopsided?

Does the 6R have a manual choke? Sounds like your choke isn't completely off, so maybe the cable is binding.

Yep, manual choke. Good idea, I will check to make sure the cable action is nice and smooth... Thanks.
You'll likely have to look at the carbs themselves in order to make sure that the choke is completely off. What happens is the choke cable starts to fray, which causes it to catch and not fully disengage. It could feel fine at the lever side, but not be moving at the carb side.
