New to site.

My new baby. 05zx10r 14k miles. Cherry shape. Pretty much stock cept fend elimin kit, flush mounts, frame sliders, K&M filter setup. Seems strong and runs cherry. What you all think I should do first? Valve work? I hear the retainers are pretty much garbage prob springs at the same time. More with valves if i do that? High end crank case gasket? Valve cover gasket been done once about a yr ago. Then thinking some new levers ect. thoughts suggestions? Any would be appreciated. ty. 32 some yrs riding. Sport bike wise an old ninja way back in the day and a 02 954 for like 4 yrs. Been about 12 before this one a few days ago. Good fun.

Gorgeous 1st gen

Other than the shims and other maintenance I would install a damper of some sort.

And ride the shite out of her!


Welcome aboard!!

She is my new daily ride. Will be driving the shite out of her as much as possible. Thinking I should get an extra back seat so I can drill a small storage bag on it. Need a place to carry a few things.. you guys use some type of alarm system when parked when out an about? If so what do you all use? I have a reg rotor lock for now. May go for one with an alarm if i can find a dependable one.
