6 year hiatus? I’m back!

As the title states, I ditched my gen 1 years ago and moved back to Arizona. Was into cars for a while and got shoulder deep in a project car that couldn’t sell. Finally made the move and sold it below value to get another 10r. Gen 2 this time and loving every second on it.


Details:
06 gen 2
26.7k miles
Pazzo shorties
Puig double bubble
Full akropovic carbon exhaust


I’m not nearly the reckless idiot I used to be and just want to enjoy the riding this go around. If you were around back in the day, say what’s up!

Welcome back,
That's a beautiful Gen 2 you got there. Looks like it has the "must-do" mod of swapping brake calipers for Nissin's.
Any other mods planned?
If you haven't did it yet I would start planning to do a valve check to be sure nothings too out of spec!

Thanks! Getting the valves checked is in the plan as soon as possible.

Toying with the idea of converting to a set of white fairings and gold wheels like my 06 636 from years ago. Currently has micheline pp2ct, I would like to get a set of battleaxe tires from Bridgestone. Had a set of them on my 05 zx10r back in the day and loved them. Considering a single side exit exhaust and ditching the full akro exhaust. The only thing solid and in the works is maintenance. Pics of my two from

Nice!

I think white w/Gold rims would look sweet, if I didn't love the Kawi Green so much that would probably be my color of choice too.

On the exhaust, I dig the dual under tail exhaust, I currently have the akro slip on's(also gutted cats so it's almost the same as a full exhaust), if you decide to part ways with your full exhaust, I might be interested since those Akra headers are probably a bit lighter and should flow a bit better.

I like the kawi green. Iíve just never been a fan of colored vehicles. Neutral colors have always been the way for me.

Thanks for the welcomes. I can tel Facebook is killing the forums a bit, this page used to be crazy active.
