Hello from Mesa Az.

Hello to everyone. New to the ZX, but not bikes. Been riding since 7 (trail 70, Hodaka 100, RM125, RM 400, TS 125, H1 500 triple, CB 350, KZ 400, XR500R (made street legal), CR500R (raced Gila Bend GP), GSXR 1000 (PAIR mod, TI force pipe, PC3, lightened) and now, 2013 ZX-10R

Always liked riding and modifying my bikes. Anybody in the Mesa area wanna ride, let me know.

I need help in learning on what to do to the ZX for mod.s

Thanks for any help and suggestions

I split my time between AZ and MN/ND...

Absolutely love it out there; the weather, proximity to everything (Vegas, San Diego, Mexico), the roads to ride on, the food, I could go on and on haha. I'm actually contemplating a week long trip heading back out that way to do nothing but ride. These "rides" up here just don't cut it. Have to switch to riding track and even then thats a once in a month thing... There are plenty of good riders out there that belong to riding groups. There was one in particular that we'd ride with when we'd go to Phoenix or they'd ride with us when they came to Tucson. Twisted Bikers; they are on Meetup.com.

Anyways as far as mods, in no particular order;
Flash the ECU
Ditch the crappy BT-016s, get some quality rubber. (You can get the new Q3s for $190-something shipped, PM me if interested)
Have the suspension set up for your weight, talk with them about also shimming the rear shock.
Slip on that removes the stock cat
Rifleman's 1/5 throttle insert
-1 front sprocket at a minimum... some people go -1/+1 and -1/+2

TechX, I'm in a bit of a pickle, I just ordered slip-on, windscreen, fender eliminator, and paid for the ECU flash from Archer. Want to ride this weekend, but might be wrenchin on the bike. I might put wrenchin on hold till Sunday, and ride the stocker Saturday to SRC. Keep in touch on if ya wanna run out there Saturday.
