I sold the 14 to buy this and don't regret it one bit. We loved the 14 for two up riding but it was a handfull on tight roads, especially 2-up. The Ninja 1K is just about perfect in my mind for the type of riding I do.

Can't wait to get my suspension installed then take it to the track. Curious to see how my times will compare to my ZX10R.

I know it won't have the same terminal speed capability down the straights, but I never maxxed out the 10 on the straights anyway.

No updated pics yet, but have the Akra 4-2-1-2 installed with Bazzaz w/autotune.

I've been offerred to send my ECU in for reflashing at Dybotronics for free as it's the first they've done. Just waiting for after my CO trip in two weeks. Don't want to chance being w/o the bike. Also T-Rex is going to use my bike to prototype some no cut frame savers this Saturday..free again...whoop!

The bike is a blast to ride. Still haven't gotten it to the track since I still haven't had my AK20's and Penske modded to fit...again...waiting for after my trip. The stock suspension is fine for casual street use, but runs out of damping and spring rate when getting aggressive....at least with my 260#s squatting it down.

I've had to adjust my riding position some. With the bars so high and back I use more of a Motard upper body position when riding at a quicker pace.

I've read the bike is speed limited, but I've yet to find that limit. It pulls cleanly through 155 indicated (on a closed circuit in Mexico of course). I'm not sure I ever reached that speed on the longer straight on the track on my 10. I'm betting my time won't be much if any different once the suspension is sorted.

Does your wife or gf have an opinion of the bike yet (comfort on longer trips)? My fiancee and I are doing about an 1800 mile trip this weekend to WSB on the superduke. I've really been eying this bike but haven't seen one in person yet. We would do a lot of two up riding. I'm also considering a concours but it's just so big.
