Might be buying this Gen 1....

Hi guys, I'm new here and don't know too much about the zx10r.

I'm going to look at this bike this weekend and need some of your knowledge about what's been done to it.

Obvious things are the PC3 and exhaust but can you give me some more details about these things and anything else you see.

Thanks

That's a really nice Gen1,
Only thing I would be worried about is the aftermarket fairings, usually that means it's been down but just because it was dropped doesn't necessarily mean it's a bad deal, that exhaust looks pretty nice. Only other thing I see from the pic that you didn't mention was the steel brake lines.

I read the braided hose is a good thing on the gen one. Yea the aftermarket fairings is a big hive away that it might have been dropped. What's the signs to look for if it's been dropped?

Does the headers look original?

Have you heard of the exhaust before ?

The header is not original, I'd never heard or seen the exhaust system before but that doesn't mean it's not any good. Check for oil leak under the valve cover..

Okay call me crazy, but is that an exhaust off of a ZX-12? I cant speak for the headers but the slip on looks like the japan ebay special for the old 12's. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. Other than the aftermarket fairings as someone mentioned the bike looks nice. Another gen one bro for the forum!

Haha.. You know when I posted that I sat there for a second looking at it going you know that's not a bad looking bike. Get rid of that ugly mud flap in the back and it really does look good.

Nice looking 1st Gen. Can't tell from the pics if anything is wrong with it, but it does look good. As was said, aftermarket fairings would suggest that it went down, I'd check for that. Otherwise she looks sweet, I gots bookoo Gen 1 love!!
