2012 ZX10R - Great Bike. Fun !

Just bought a new Kawa and I love it - attached. Bought with just 1181 miles so quite new. I already managed to tweak the front cowl and tank a bit though. Ordered a Carbon Fiber nose which is on the way.
Super fun so far and I have yet to do some upgrades. I went to shop for a slip-on and the gent told me about the site. The site is great. I've learned a lot and appreciate all the members have contributed.
I seek to flash the ECU, Slip-On, Air Filter, sprocket, 1/5 throttle, tires, etc. I would appreciate any suggestions any members may have. :)

Thanks!
yes I'm in South Florida on the beach. The only reason is I want to have more acceleration on the lower end. I have not tried it and I not too concerned about giving up a little on the higher end.. higher speeds. Who knows I may not like it and go back. We'll see...

I recently purchased a 2011 with a few upgrades. Unless you race there's no point in doing anything like that, this bike is pretty fast with ecu, tune, pipe and filter. It will make a big difference. Just my 2 cents. Enjoy! It's a gorgeous red rocket, I love the new paint schemes. I might change mine up.
Where did you order the carbon fiber pieces from?

I bought it at www.TEKARBON.COM (I hope this doesn't break rules to suggest sites) It's 2x2 Twill. I like the look more than I thought I would. I'll have it on in the next day or two. Perhaps I will post a new pic then too. Thanks for the comments.

Beware the carbon fiber! It's an addiction!

I planned on ordering just a piece or two... yeah, didn't go that way. Ended up ordering everything all at once so pretty much everything on my bike is carbon fiber (sans the wheels, which will be coming soon).

Tekarbon makes good quality stuff, I have a lot of their stuff on my bike. Beware with the CF stuff, not everything lines up correctly; some adjustments may have to be made like trimming tabs, dremeling holes making them wider, etc. If you do have to make adjustments, go slow, little by little. That time spent will go a long way when everything fits together perfectly.

Also, if you want to flash your ECU, I do offer an ECU flashing service. You can read more about it my sponsor forum here; https://www.zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=218786

If you're interested, drop me a line there or shoot me a PM!

Finally, welcome to the site!
