I just found the church of kawi!

OH THANK YOU JEEBUS! (in homers voice)

I picked up my 06 10 last weekend and have not had much time to ride this week.I have about 300 miles on it and found a lot of loose bolts. Exhaust started ticking so I started with that. Faring screws were about to fall out so it was a good thing to checks all that I could reach.My honda had some things of it's own aswell when it was new. I swaped in my 03 rc-51 for the 10. I really liked the twin but the ONLY bike I every had pull on me out of a corner ay low rps was a zx10. My honda I loved that bike it just was not a good bike for the riding I like to do. Long trips up to TN. around Atl all over the place. I spent all day on the 10 on monday and wow what a diffrence. I can already tell I'm gonna love this bike just as much or more. I am still tring to use the search function so Ill give it a while before I start asking the same old chit all of you already know.

sounds like your dealership needs a swift kick in the arse for not checking your bike over.
welcome.

Yea I'm with you on that one. The sales manger, and the girl who does the paper work seem to be prety good but other than that my sales guy didnt really know much about the bike at all.Pretty the sales manger made and closed the deal in my opinion. The first go round the sales guy sold me my bike and put 2 diffrent vin#s on the paper work. after finding this out through
my insurance guy the admin chick fixed right up for me. The sales guy that sold me my bike was then question about what happend then caught a bad attitude with me after that. as far as the ticking I head I asked him about it and he said bring it in @ 600 miles and they will check it then so just ride it.
Well the exhact header nuts were about a quater turn from falling off one pipe and the others wer finger loose! as well was the farring bolts now that I think about it I'm gonna go check the whell axles!
