Congrats! I just picked me up a 2005 ZX10R on Tuesday the 17th. Had some minor damage I am working through now but rode it yesterday and it's a beast. Fixing some damager to the radiator mounts and the wiring harness. Getting it track-ready.

I'm looking at an 04 tomorrow that I'm thinking of replacing my ZX9R with. Interesting that kawi called this the C1 I believe, and my 9 is the C1 model too. I'm thinking that's where the similarities will end between these bikes though. I commute with a mix of highway and mountain roads so I'm hoping the 10 will be comfortable enough (I'm 6 foot, 200 lbs). Looking forward to the potential upgrade

Took off the Ranthal dirt bik bars, replaced the original top yoke and clip ons. Now she feels alot better. Might be a few more years before old age forces em back on
