The good news..you bought an awesome bike, welcome to the family, I ride an 05 (identical). The bad news..you gotta hit the "search" button before you get eaten alive for this thread...trust me...long story.

Ride like you pay a mortgage...

and to the site.

Along with the throttle insert and -1F I would also throw in a GiPro. Its a gear indicator and a TRE in one

Performance: stainless steel lines and Galfer pads (our brakes suck), 1/5th throttle insert (adds even more bawls), Cosmetic: Solo cowl seat and ZX-10R.net stickers (total plug). BTW, where are you located 10RKid?

California. Thanks for all the info guys! Does anyone know if there is a way to remove the little butterfly valve in the exhaust and if it is even worth it?
