Italian Ninja Rider

Hello guys,
I'm an Italian Zx10R '05 owner.
I'm new to the forum but I've been lurking a little bit and found tons of great pieces of informations here, I decided to join since I hope I'll be able to learn from your experience and also give back in someway as much as I can!
My Ninja is nowadays stock, aside from a Leovinci Exhaust, but in a month I will garage it for the winter and I'm turning it over, I'm gonna transform it into a naked with an ABM kit, plus a lot of other changes that will solve some defects that I found on it, like front calipers, bad air intakes, rear shock absorber etc etc...
Attached you can find a pic of my Ninja, nothing special, but it'll be back in great shape once I'm done with it.
Everything that it's scratched, badly painted etc etc, will be changed with new parts!
I'll open a post to show the progress of my project when I get closer to its start.

Thanks :)
Anyone that can tell me if there's a post that sums up DIY modification to fine tune/improve the performances of our bike (Gen1)? I don't mean changing parts, just improving what's already on the bike, like removing the rubber part that divides in two sections the air box pipes or things like those which are free but still good to do :)
p.s. excuse my poor English!

Nice. Sono abito in italia (Trieste and Pordenone) per quattro anni...in 1990's. Loved it. Best place to ride motorcycles than anywhere in the world!

Not sure about any free mods.

All mine always cost me money. There are some inexpensive one to consider. The rifleman mod is a good one. Search that one on the forum. Going down one tooth on the front sprocket isn't costly either. That's about 50 US dollars to do those.

Will look it up!
That gives me good inspiration to open a post in which we can share some good mods that can be done without spending money!

We definitely have some very good roads here, I totally agree!

I lived in Philly for a year in 2010, loved the US too!
