First Kawi, first "litre" bike... WTF?

So, older, very experienced rider here.. I have a couple other bikes; a Tuono Factory (twin) and my daily ride - an F6B. I wanted something to round out the experience, so (after lots of reading) just picked up a 2004 black 10R. It has some nice mods; Akrapovic slip on, Power Commander, Gilles rear sets, Hyperpro steering damper, steel brake lines and -1, +2 gearing... All I can say is "FUCK ME", does it go. The Tuono is easy to wheelie, but this thing is stupid. What a rush. If I learn how to use half of the available performance, I'll be a happy guy...

Anyway, hello to the members here, glad to be a part of the forum and will learn as much as I can from you all..

Btw, I'm in the Vancouver area

Welcome to the party!

Glad to hear you're enjoying your new "Widow Maker"!!! If you're that impressed with a 10-year old liter bike, just wait until you ride a current generation one!

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

There's a youtube vid where Brock overlays some of his past dyno runs on Kawasaki litre bikes. Your 1st Gen 10r makes a lot more bottom end and lower mid range power than even the 4th gen does. I've never ridden a 1st gen, but after seeing that video I understand why they call it the widow maker!

2013 ABS, Bridgestone T30 Evo, Woolich, Danmoto shorty & link, Rifleman's 1/5th turn, K&N, GP shift, Gen5 shock/links/dogbone, geared (-1/+0), Shorai, EBC HH, AllBallz roller steering, Ohlins NIX30, Lightech adjusters. Bestem carbon. 50,000km+ and good so far.

Newtogreen!

The first gens are by far my favorite. They are not the best handling, braking or even top end, but by the Grace of God they are the best at arm snapping.

..And the best looking
