-1 front / gipro = grin

Just fitted -1f sprocket and gipro and my tame ZX10 feels like it's turned into something possesed by the devil himself.

Fast launches from standstill, power everywhere, pulls so strong in lower gears even on partial throttle...2nd gear pops up front fast on power now with no tug / bounce i just cant stop riding / grinning.

One thing I've noticed is the noise, sounds so much more, not sure why, maybe something to do with gipro.. but the pops and crackles on down shift are beautiful.

The blue gear indicator is pretty nice as well....


Best mods so far, transformed the bike TOTALLY

The 16t is a very impressive mod for the money.

installed it myself, took about 40mins (and im a mechanical noob :)... though had the advantage of fitting their similar speedohealer unit so had to follow similar instructions.

there is one fiddly bit to do where you have to pull some leads out of a connector and put into theres, it's easy enough once you have the hang of it, but it's quite hard getting your fingers to the wires at times

piece of cake though, only thing I'd say is make sure you do it on a near empty tank, as when you prop a full tank up for a few mins it leaks from fuel filler after a while

the actual gear indicator just velros on the mount plate to the left of tacho, fits in great there and though not quite at 90 degree to you is real easy to read while riding...

roughly order I did it...

remove the two small side panels under seat
remove seat
undo center steering damper bolt and swing out of the way
remove damper bracket so tank can lift
prop up tank with a long screwdriver or similar
remove left hand fairing insert so you can route wire

then fiddle around with some connectors and your done..

i routed the wire for the indicator behind the fairing / frame by the water res, and up under tank where connections are made.. can do it without removing fairing with abit of jiggling about :D

Got speedohealer from a dealer of theirs, about £65 uk or sumthin.. got it set -13% atm as I have a 50 rear which is like 1 more tooth back.

Best bit is the 'top speed' button, after a ride you can hit it (i have it mounted next to gipro) and see highest speed you reached. It remembers this till you clear it.. quite alot of fun trying to beat speed readings on a fave road :D

Just gotta hope police don't spot it
