I am getting more riding time in. I do enjoy the bike a lot. The thing is almost scary at 10k haven't ran it up to 13 or 14 yet. Just wish it was a little more responsive on the lower end. Like....pretty sure that front wheel won't come up at all unless i pop the clutch. However i do think getting it up at 120 mph is very possible

ryan claims 20hp in 3-6k range. 16 is the real deal, kaw just trying to keep guys from killing themselves. flash it, gear it, tune it, be scary a lot lower than 10k. bike gonna demand a lot of respect in this form.

are we confirming that the 2016 Gen 5 is an electronic throttle and not cables?

I'm going to be sooooo sad if that is the case.

certainly a sprocket(s) change will wake the bike up. I went up one on my TLR in the rear and that was enough to just add some pep.

the -1/+2 and 1/5th throttle insert were night vs day. I always recommended doing one, wait a week, and then do the other... but you know, guys get to working on the bike and it's a marathon secession.



Need to know how to install your Rifleman's 1/5th throttle insert? click me
For more info on a sticky grip (not enough cable slack) click me
And another amazing install write up click this

Throttle cables going to the bike from the grip. Cables go all of the way to the throttle bodies.

ok, good, knew that electronic fly by wires stuff is coming, but that the mechanical cables are hard to get rid of because they are reliable and almost stupid proof.

thing should bring up the front wheel without issues.. your not a small guy from your pics but it should not be an issue..

make sure you have turned off all the electronics ie traction control and make sure you are in full power mode. Not sure if 2016 has other crap like wheelie control and stuff too. Get with woolich racing or PM (zx10rarcher) for a ecu flash.

ecu controls primary throttle blade openings, not ur wrist. throttle cables go to a spring loaded sensor, not the primary shaft.

Try that on a Ducati in top gear and you’ll be stalled, the fact that the Kaw can still actually accelerate in top gear at like ( 2500? ) rpms is a testament to how well the engineers thought out the premise of “Hmm... how lazy will our target riders be, do we need to make it run in top gear at only 2000 rpms? Ducati doesn’t and the magazines all give them a pass”

The current ZX10’s are much more responsive in low rpms than the first gen ZX14’s were in ’06 - ’07, hence the ‘pull the secondary plates’ mod became popular. In I think it was ’08 they remapped the secondary plates? Anyway at some point later on. The power was anemic below 6000 rpms.

Give the bike some break in time and get more saddle time first.
To my knowledge, secondary throttle plates help low end power. They close to create velocity in the throttle body. Taking them out creates less low end power with a unobstructed flow for top end.
