Hello everyone, this is Pete from DG Motors on Long Island, NY. I currently own a performance facility in Lindenhurst, NY and specialize in the Lancer Evolution field currently owning the World's Fastest Evo 8 which ran 8.88 @ 172mph in the 1/4 mile.
I've always been into bikes and I just recently sold my old 07 ZX6r for something with a little more balls. I just purchased a left over 08 ZX10r and immediately like everyone else, the mod bug got me!
I've upgraded so far:
-Chrome Rim Package
-Race Air Filter
-Chrome Frame Sliders
-Chrome Rear Spools
-Blacked Out Front Shield
-Yosh R55 Slip-On
-Removed Black Box On Exhaust
-Removed Secondary Butterflys
-Tail Light/Fender Eliminator Kit
Here are some pictures of the bikes progress. I also removed the secondary butterflies today thanks to zx-10r.net's how to so thanks goes out to this awesome site so far.
Here are some pictures of the bike fairly new without some of the more current mods listed above:
Now I come from owning some wicked fast street cars, 1993.5 6-Speed Supra 850whp, 2006 Lancer Evolution 9 650whp, 2008 Lancer Evolution X 450whp, but nothing compares to 185+mph on two wheels and thus far this ZX10r is amazing in all aspects of down low torque to top end speed. The old ZX6r had no balls under 8,000rpm and just died up top after 125mph. This newer ZX10r has plenty of low end torque above 4,000rpm and is just flat out nuts all the way till red-line. I believe I will be a very happy camper for quite some time to come. Then again if I really need to go fast, I can always take out my pop's 2006 ZX14R
I plan on purchasing a Power Commander 5 Tomorrow to fine tune this bike especially since I just removed the secondary butterflies Today. I also plan on building the motor and adding a turbo down the road!
Awesome forum thus far with plenty of knowledgeable threads! I plan on sticking around for quite some time with my own R&D and hopefully can add some data to the community.
Here is a quick video with some 186mph passes and some wheelies:
