good evening all; brand new

evening everyone. my name is greg and i just picked up about 4 hours ago a 2006 zx10r black in color. pretty much stock (slip on single carbon canister 2 brothers exhaust). bike is literally mint with 4900 miles on it. i am IN LOVE with this thing already. I sold my 06 hayabusa over the summer and figured i'd buy something before winter hits here in NJ in preparation for spring. i plan on using the search button a lot, but before i do...are there any known mechanical issues that need to be addressed and/or recalls? thank you all and happy to be apart of the kawi community

Brakes!
Brakes are terrible, but it's an easy inexpensive fix! CBR calipers and zx14 are direct bolt ons, just search it it's been discussed a few times lol...

Also, stator/rectifiers are notorious for going bad, so if your bike starts having weird electrical/starting/running problems, start there.

In the DIY section, you can actually download the service manual that techs use, so you can be your own service tech and not have to worry about leaving your bike in someone else's hands for shitty service

Garage
Just sold my black 06.

At some point your stator will die, that's about it really. Oh and front brakes feel like crap.

You'll be very happy with the bike. Do a full exhaust and get it tuned.

Welcome, Enjoy the bike. A lot of mods on here.

P.S. I still have the original stator in mine. :) (now that I state it mine will probably fail)
