Yes like I posted in cmbnyc's crash thread, some scum stole my ZX10R on Monday last week
and came back to try to grab a 2012 ZX6R but were chased off.
So my time with an awesome bike has been cut short (and this time) through no fault of my own.
Police not interested. Low priority crime. CCTV but thieves arrived on a fake plate stolen bike and kept helmets on so no Id.
Anyway...Looking to the future (quite far from now as have no money)...I'm thinking of the G5 2016 ZX10R.
I'm not going to be riding on the road anymore so I may just buy a track prepped one...but I also don't like the thought of buying someone else's wreckage so I may just build up a track / race bike from a low mile road bike.
My main question is...I really don't want to have to throw a lot more money at a bike which even used will cost me nearly £12,000 (about $15,500). The main issue I had with my G4 was the suspension was a bit weak especially the rear.
Is the G5 such an improvement and good enough that racers and serious trackdayers leave it stock?
I still have my Bitubo shock as thankfully I had not fitted it to my bike, and also have a Brembo master cylinder left over from another bike.
For a club racing set up...Slip on...Flash and the above parts...Is this enough?
I just want a bike I can use almost straight from factory.
I'm also looking at the new Gixxer but that is probably out of my price range right now.
Would like to hear if you moved from a G4 to a G5 and you either race or do a lot of track days.
