The only cover I got when I bought the bike was a rear seat. Its perfectly tight. I'd have to agree with crispin though....broken and loose parts all over the place. You may want to stick with a zuk, their not as common.

Nothing that duct-tape can't fix!

Increase the radius of the rear rod the hooks of the seat cover latch on using tape and that thing will be rock solid - no more shaky feeling.

I fixed mine by applying foam tape weatherstripping around the inside edge all the way around the bottom. It takes up the gap and pushes up a wee bit, just enough so it doesn't move around.

I've had no other loose parts. I think the rear seat cowl has a Suzuki part number ...


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

Damn!!! You guys even have hate for other ZX10 owners now!!

It's not bias anymore, don't know what you'd call it, but that's pretty f'd up.
