Finaly got a 10.

whats up from the land of rain and undercover state troopers! I stumbled onto this site while looking for a used full system. got myself an 04 ZX-10R after wanting one for 6 years, and 5 gixxers later i have one. so far the 10 handles like shit, valves are noisy, head shakes, and the gas mileage sucks but i wouldnt trade it for ANYTHING! love this nasty f***er! could have got a newer bike but had to scratch my itch for a ZX-10R. looking forward to meeting some fellow sicko's.

You say the gas mileage sucks, I average 38 mpg and got 37 mpg at the track on Saturday! Adjust your suspension and it will handle fairly decent.

Funny post. My gas mileage, well, I don't even pay attn. It's not the goal of this bike. I'm getting mid 30's and with my gearing/riding style, that's pretty good.

to the forum man...... GET A STEERING DAMPER if the previuos owner didn't put one and then as stated above, adjust the suspension, make sure the steering head-stem bolt/nut is tight on the triple tree cause i've read some other users mention it being an issue? aside from that, just be safe and enjoy that beast!! you came to the right place for info,help, and whatever else you might need!!
