just purchased a new leftover 06 zx 10r

Hello, Just last year i purchased a new 06 R1 and i loved it to death, until the valve cover started to seep, and the oil pan gasket also started to seep. i was pissed but it was covered under warranty. well i start her up last week and notice that antifreeze is under the bike and the overflow container was empty. i did some research and found that it was a plastic coolant tube. so i replaced that. All is well now until i see that now a radiator hose is now leaking form the center where the cords are in the center of the hose. well i have had enough. i Bought the bike last summer put 1800 miles on it and have had all these issues. i previously owned a 05 vulcan 800, a 98 cbr 900rr for 5.5 years and a 91 gsxr 750, all without any issues other than a new battery in the cbr. so i was so pissed and started to look around and called my friends shop and he had 6 zx10 left overs. he gave me a good trade in and cheap price for the 10r so i bought it. ill get it delivered this weekend. i cant wait. I got the green one of corse, the black one was nice but i have had to many black bikes/cars in my life. I hope i made a good choice....
