I will keep all updated with my experience and wish you all safe travels at high speeds!

wheelz96 Just got my ECU back from Schnitz racing and wow what a difference! The midrange is a lot more stronger then before and I now no longer have the backfire. Sounds like an actual tuned bike! I also noticed a lot less engine braking even with the feature off. The autoblipper is working seamlessly and the power feels more linear throughout the rev range as opposed to above 8k.

All in all well worth the money! So far I just have the M4 Tech 1 3/4 system and have a sprint filter on order. Once I get the suspension dialed in a little better this bike is going to be an animal on the track!

Happy to be back with team green!!!!

Using Pirelli out of habit and good service at track. Still slow, but worked great at RoadA. Friend tells me Dunlop may be on top now with newer product and stiffer front carcass(?) for this bike. Stay safe

wheelz96 So I just spent the weekend at Blood Mountain in Georgia and had a blast on the ZX10R! This bike ran down anything in front of me including some track bikes and a couple super duke 1290's. However, I had the rear end come around 3 separate occasions in TC3. Two out of the three slides were controllable but one bucked me on top of the tank almost high siding. I ran 32 psi in the rear then dropped down to 30 but still had slippage thru mid corner. These stock RS10 tires are not confidence inspiring to say the least! I am actually curious to try the new Q4. Anyone here get there hands on a set of the new Dunlops yet?

Overall bike worked great but tires are garbage IMO. Taking her to track for first time this weekend so looking forward to that!

What tires are you guys running for track duty?

Very bright actually! Some buddies I ride with thought it was the stock tail light until I braked. It flashes when braking.. Im very happy with the purchase! Motodynamic is the brand.

Bike is truly amazing but I'm sure you guys know this already!



Mods so far are integrated tail light, fender eliminator, sliders,tank grips, and just mounted a M4 Tech 1 3/4 system. I am sending my ecu to Schnitz racing for a flash and I'm looking forward to the auto blipper and proper fueling. The extra horses will be appreciated as well!



Anyone here use Schnitz before for a flash?



Here's a pic!
