I used to have an '05 years ago and missed it ever since. I picked this thing up last weekend and finally got out to ride it after tearing it down and going through it. Swapped the front brakes as that is one thing that was always the weak point on the Gen 1 and 2. Picked up a used set of ZX14 brakes. It was a complete setup with the master cylinder and even had the lever. It was in great shape and bolted right up. What a night and day difference. I was a little worried because I wasn't a 100% sure that the newer ones were a direct fit and they were being sold as '12-'17 zx14r brakes. I'm probably going to swap out the exhaust for a Comp Werkes GP, and besides that going ride the hell out of this thing.
