Cool A Blank Slate

First off, hello all! I just purchased my 4th motorcycle and 3rd Kawasaki. I've owned an SV650S (sold), ZX9 (totaled), ZX12 (blown motor), and now a 2006 ZX-10R. I haven't lurked much but figured I couldn't go wrong with an entire forum dedicated to a specific model bike.

Initial impression - you guys are right, the brakes S U C K ! So that'll be my first order of business; swap the calipers. It's 90lbs lighter than my ZX12 with slightly less HP so the bike just feels faster. I'm an engine braking fanatic and the bike has none but I'll live. My tires came in today so I'll get a better feel for the handling after they're mounted up.

Anyway, enough of the small talk. Here's the pics!





PLUG for my friend's motorycle apparel line called "SEFFS"


And here's why the bike is a Blank Slate!


I overpaid but it was hard to argue with 1,576 original miles!

Very nice amazing low mileage. Don't forget to set the suspension for your weight. I like the Yosh can's

Damn that thing is Super Clean. lol
I had those Yoshi's too. Ended up selling them for some Akrapovic slip ons. The Yoshi's didn't sound bad though.

Welcome to the party!

Beautiful ride!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Yup, right after I get the new rubber on it. The shop I go to is a racing shop and the owner is a whiz at suspension setup. He setup my ZX12 and gave me a spot on recommendation for my ZX9 from my descriptions.

I like the sound too but I really, really dig the look the most.
