Our 2019 ZX-10RR Superbike Project (Taking Things To The Next Level!)

Hello all! We've been meaning to come back by and share some updates on our latest project Kawasaki, but we've been full speed all year. Anyway, here's what we have!

We really enjoyed the 2018 RR project bike, but identified a few clear issues that we felt could be addressed with some proper solutions and the 2019 ZX-10RR seemed a perfect opportunity to apply those solutions and take that vision a step farther. The goal here is to make the most of the strengths the bike has and essentially eliminate the problem areas using a proper Superbike-spec chassis and electronics configuration.

Freddy is working to document a bit of this build via vlog as well, those videos can be seen here:










Onto the progress photos!

First, we start with a brand new 2019 ZX-10RR:



Then, we compile several specialized components for the new project. This includes 2018-spec Ohlins WSBK fork, Ohlins RSP40 WSBK shock absorber, MoTeC M1-based electronics package & C125 dash, Nova LITA gearbox & a Suter swingarm, among other things:














MoTeC M1 Electronics, Sensors, Harness:



We of course planned to use one of our WSBK-spec carbon monocoque tails, this time in a gloss finish:

We got the 2019 bike WAAAAY later than we were initially told, so we did our best to mock up the components we're using on our 2018 machine. Here's a shot of both bikes, the '18 featuring some of our new parts.





Some of the other components we used are a Taleo Tecnoracing add-on radiator, Beringer nickel plated endurance calipers and a proper superbike aluminum fuel tank:

Part of running an electronics package like the MoTeC system is having to manufacture components to get the most from the platform. We're using an alternate wheelspeed sensor for improved accuracy and reliability, which means all-new brackets front and rear for the sensor and new triggers for the wheel.

Finishing test fitment of all of our MoTeC components, wiring harness and fuel tank, followed by some dyno time.

Here's a quick video of the Race display for our C125, as well as the current shift light setup.

Now we've got a motorcycle that at least runs and is mapped properly, but now the complicated part: Making it work well on the race track.

Yes, we're working on a platform we have a lot of experience with, but we've introduced completely different superbike chassis/suspension components, as well as a sophisticated electronics system.

We opted to go with MoTeC for a couple of reasons. Aside from the fact that we're dealers and Freddy is trained as MoTeC technician, we had experience with it on our old factory Yamaha BSB-based superbike project, which was our first real hands-on experience with the system. In that example, upgraded the BSB ECU to a now-defunct "M1 Superbike" package. This has been replaced with a newer firmware, but the same basic rules and strategies are there, but now with more layers and control.

The first step is getting the bike to the race track to shake everything down. Make sure all of our sensors are functioning properly and that our tables we've developed over the winter break are in the ballpark.

You can price it on our website to an extent! There are certain components like the fuel tank, shock & fork that are unavailable to the general public right now but the rest is stuff we can and have provided to customers.

One of the larger expenses for a customer with something like this would be the time invested. Building something outwardly similar would definitely be costly, but getting everything to work really well just takes time. We've spent a tremendous amount of time setting up the electronics package and configuration, not to mention every other aspect of the bike.

Sweet baby Rossi what a beautiful machine. It would be a bit daunting griding up next to that thing
