Geometry on the 2016 ZX10r

Had a long conversation with Lenny from K-Tech last night after he measured the geometry on the 16 zx10r. These 10s are being used by the Latus Motosports team. I believe this is either Aussie Dave's or Bobby Fongs.

That they are! Was interesting to hear the differences between the two years.

I can tell you out of the box they need work. I can also tell you that Bobby had issues with the bike turning in stock form. After seeing the numbers I can see why, and this will be a problem for most racers whether novice or pro. I can also say there are some solutions in the Kawi Race Kit that will help.
shakazulu12 and SkyDork like this.

I figured all the chassis adjustments that were available would help out tremendously with setting them up. Will be fun to see them out there.

I just got an email today from Kawasaki regarding the race kit. Would that be the "Steering Collar", "Steering Angle Adjuster Collar", "Swingarm Pivot Collars"? Will it be worse than the 2014 out of the box?

Race kit parts not enough to get you there?

Going to be a hassle for the superstock guys if that is the case. I thought that was the whole point of all the chassis revisions?
