Parts are starting to pile up so hopefully I'll start stripping he bike next week. Couldn't get the exhaust size I wanted from Spark so ordered a full Akrapovic from Biohazardcycles.com.

I use the same dash on the BMW, so was a given to go with the same on the zx10 plus it has a few new features now also.

Put in about 70laps on the zx10rr today. One thing I did notice compared to the zx10r is that the quick shifter seems to have shorter cut times and feels a lot smoother. The rest in stock trim is about the same, suspension is stiff in front and soft in the rear (80kg rider). Backed out all the comp and went to 3 turns on preload made the front feel much better.

I replaced the stock brake pads with some used z04 before I rode the bike, cause we can sell the new pads for $130 here.. half the price of a new set of z04!!! Heard reviews of the brakes having a wooden feeling, but with just z04 brakes pads and everything else stock even ABS I was impressed at how good the stock brakes are even compared to my GP4RX on the BMW.

Now the strip down begins and the next time I ride will be with all the race bits on it..

Are you taking cylinder head off for gasket change, skimming, porting?
It would be very intresting to see pictures of intake ports and chamber of the RR head.

Gen4 race: high spec.
Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa 2013: stock.
Kawasaki KX450F 2016: love it.

Will keep engine stock for now but I may change head gasket later in the year. Thailand Kawasaki Team have had the engine apart already and I plan to chat with the mechanics about any differences they've seen in the RR compared to R.

Will race my 2012 BMW S1000rr this weekend instead but look to get a good comparison of both bikes once I get the zx10rr race ready.

A few pics of earlier today when the bike arrived..

Everything is the same as far as combustion chamber and port shape/size. The difference is the cutout to allow for the bigger exhaust cam. Weights of piston/rods might differ but mine weren't out to compare.
