Cheap Mods

Where did you guys get your 1/5th throttle conversion kit & 16T sprocket for the 10. I'm finally going to do this mod, as I know you get a lot of bang for your buck. What brands did you go with, where did you buy, and what kind of prices am I looking at. These are inexpensive mods anyway, so price is really not an issue so to speak, I just want to buy the best of the best. That is why I bought a Kawasaki ZX10R anyway!

I don't care what kind of rider he was, he tested me and got dealt with. +1 in my book.

I would also like to know where to buy these mods. They sound like a great idea, the only problem I can see is running through town trying to maintain a "legal" speed. I mean the bike is already really "touchy" and I can't imagine how much more speed will change with even smaller turns of the throttle. SOUNDS LIKE FUN TO ME !!!!

My previous bikes : 1st bike 1984 Honda V45 (750cc)
2nd bike 1999 Gixxer 600
3rd bike 2001 Yamaha FZ1
Current bike 2005 Green ZX10R

I bought my 10 brand new on March 31, 2006 it was a left over from 2005 so I got a really good deal. BREAK IN COMPLETE ! Riding hard and saving up for mods.

Save yourself some install time on the 1/5th throttle conversion just put bigger grips on your bike it is more comfortable and it accomplishes the same thing and it is a much easier install

Bigger grips would actually do the opposite of the 1/5th throttle conversion. The inside diameter of the grip would be the same, but the outside would be larger. Larger outside diameter, with same inside, will require more overall movement (same angle, same rotation, but with a larger circumference). This means your wrist still moves the same amount, but now you have a thicker handle. It will not increase or decrease the angle required for full throttle.
