Presentation and questions

Hello all,
brand new member here from Australia.
I recently bought a track ready '04 ZX-10R and can't wait to take it to the track.
In the meantime i went over the bike and did some bits and pieces to suit my needs and learn a bit more about the bike.
Grips have been replaced
Healtech Quickshifter installed
forks were too tight so travel was stiff and i think i fixed that
Got full front brakes setup off a ZX-14R
Anything i need to be aware of? Bike has a 41 teeth rear sprocket and i think that is better than the stock 39.
Thank you :)

I would get a steering damper. Other than that you should be good to go

Oh, and...

Thanks guys.
The steering damper is fitted already, should be a good piece to tame the tankslaps.
I am a bit concerned about the forks as they seem to be pretty stiff but i won't be able to see what's what until i take it on the track. Let's say that i have to soften up everything and it still feels stiff.
I know it is setup for a rider that is heavier than me but i could not get any info on oil and springs.
