how much $$ you got?? If you can afford it it can be done.. A guy had one at the NJMP a few months ago and kept up with all the other bikes w/out any pronlems..

I rode my mans 14 it felt wierd at first but after a few more rides i liked it seems to build up power slow but yet gets triple digits damn fast... were the is like a rocket from takeoff till you run out of rode.

The 14 dips into corners incredibly well! Much better than a Busa. Get a test ride on one, you might like it!

You could use the SICOM ceramic brakes . More stopping power and they work better as they get hotter http://www.sicom-brakes.com but Aagin they are costly i just bought a set for my racing Buell . Ill tell you the results come summer . I also own a ZX14 . I am racing the Buell because I too like pojects they say cant be done but it costs Cubic dollars lol

You can improve the 14s' handling ofcourse. But it will never have the "nimbleness" of a 10. Wheelbase, weight, center of gravity and geometry will always favor a 10. Depends on what you want; a Super Sport that carves or a Repli-Racer that you have slightly modded for a bit more comfort. Riding ability will play a big part in who you will keep up with or pass, so individual mileage may vary.

Well, I don't think I can get my 14 to handle like a 10, but I do want to get the most out of it for what I can do on it. I already have race tech springs for my weight and gold valves seatting in the closet now. The plan is to pull off the springs and shock this winter and send then to race tech. I'm going to have the forks rebuilt with the new parts and the correct spring, and revalve for the back. I plan on doing my first track day on it in the spring.
