Gen 4 build and deals

I like seeing/reading build threads so even though this is just a street build I thought somebody might like to check it out. So bought this bike back in October. Felt like I got a good deal for 2015 ZX10r non-abs with a lil over 7k miles for $7500. It was raining that day and ever since then the weather has either been rain or cold as hell. So thought since Black Friday sales and closeout deals were coming up I'd just start modding.

The day I got her home...

The previous owner decided he wanted to go for one last ride the night before I picked the bike up. That was cool....couldn't blame him. Except for the fact it was a downpour when he went riding and the bike was disgusting afterwards. Not to mention he was running a LED kit with no covers so there was water inside the housing along with all kinds of other shit. So first mod was to fix that. Found a HL housing on ebay that had a small crack where both sides connected. Epoxy it up and good as new! Other than that...not a scratch on it. HL=$100.

Figured I'd start at the top and work my way down. Cleaned every inch of this bike with a combo of Totally Awesome, alcohol and WD-40. IMO....bike is only 2 years old...there is no reason it shouldn't still look brand new. It had some sort of rigged fender elim on it that looked like a 2 year old did it. So that got trashed and I installed a simple TST fender elim which I scored for $20. While I had that apart I found a brand new DMP integrated tail light on ebay that I won for $60. Soldered everything up and good to go!

Got a factory seat cowl but beforehand I had read on here about over tightening the bolts so I made sure to finger tighten. But thought I should take a wrench and gently snug them up. Everything was fine until a week later. I went to remove it so I could plug in my new WPS featherwight lithium battery I got from Mike at riderdiscount ($73) and found this! Let this be a lesson to anybody who is looking to get these...if it feels tight by hand....IT IS! Don't second guess yourself. Needless to say there was no fixing this so I ordered a new one. No good deal this time!

Tank section took alot more time. Bike had the R&G tank protectors on and I'm not a fan of Carbon Fiber randomness so those had to go. 5hrs later using a 3m eraser wheel and alot of patience the tank was back to the way it was. Got to put on my light tech knockoff keyless gas cap I scored for ($19) and my Tech spec C3 kit. (pad=$12/grips kit=$61). Under the tank I put in a new K&N filter ($25) and my flashed by SIK ecu (black friday special $150). Can't forget about the ZX10r decals Blink hooked me up with.

Well i gotta say you have some good taste! Great looking 10 but that 646 is beautiful! Tried the white for about a week and could not hang, takes so much effort to keep up on. Keep up the good work!

The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.

Thanks! It was definitely a job (especially the wheels) but I didn't mind.

Didn't wanna go with cheap levers or overly expensive ones. Came across these doing a search online and decided to try em out. So far I'm really impressed. Green anodizing matches perfectly (as you can see in the pic), no movement up or down in the clutch lever like some. I did have to take the plunger fitting (whatever it's called) and machine it out a tiny bit as it was just a hair to small. The cool thing about these levers is the LCTT (lever cushion traction technology) inserts. It comes with 5 different color inserts. I have the black in for now. For $100 I think I'm gonna be really happy with these and the Spider grips I snagged for $10.
