New ZX10 owner - long time racer

To introduce myself, I am 505zx10. I have been roadracing since 1998. I have been a longtime gixxer owner. My current race stable looks like this
2001 gsxr600, 2002 sv650 and now a 2004 zx10.

Current mods:
Attack adjustable rearsets
Attack dampner bracket/matrix dampner
Traxxion's front forks set for a 180 pound rider
Penske double clicker rear shock set for a 180 pound rider
-2 front brake lines
ebc race pads
Morse racing fiberglass.

I have the fork raised +5 mm in the triples...

Bike turns awesome, but I seem to get some front wheel chatter just after I tip her in. then it goes away once I am leaned over....
Has anyone else experienced this?

What is the prime set up for these bike? I am a newbie when it comes to the Kawasaki's so your advice is appreciated

These things are real geometry dependent. What are you running for tires?

Thanks for taking the time to help, as I am figuring out that these bikes are a little more intensive to set up... Geometry changes in the smallest increments seem to have HUGE affect on the smallest of things..... I am running Mich. pr1 and pr5

I have my geometry VERY VERY Agressive...

I like how she works most of the time. Im running the Dunlops, but I've got the front lowered about 10mm with traxxion internals, and the rear raised with penske tripple and 190/60 rear. So if youre gonna go in a direction, go towards steep f'sho!
