My name is Andrea (not female, just an Italian who has lived in CA for about 18 years now). Lurker for about six months, now starting to post. I got a black 2008 ZX10R a couple of months back (from our friend Kevin at Advanced Kawasaki, of course...
) and I absolutely love the bike, now with about 1000 miles on it.
The only mod so far has been the Evo-Tech fender eliminator (superb quality... I had one on my R1 and it was great, the '08 10R version is even better). I am waiting for the Akra to become available, as none of the other exhausts I've seen compare, IMHO.
One thing I ordered today is a set of Rizoma rearsets, great quality stuff:
Got them on eBay:
The stockers are good, but like most OEM rearsest are too small for my big feet. That STUPID "lip" on the outer side of the pegs pokes right into my boot/foot and becomes uncomfortable within an hour (what is the point of that, anyhow? Unless you have dwarf feet that protrusion is just annoying).
Besides, the rearsets on the 08 are seriously high. The bike is comfy overall, but my legs are a bit cramped (I am 6' 1"), I'll lower the pegs just a bit.
Anyhow... just saying hi and introducing myself. I'll post pics of the bike once I get the rearsets installed.
