New Guy

Hey folks, new to the site. Just traded my '06 GSXR1000 with 36,000 miles on it for a brand new ZX10. The handling blows me away. I really impressed BUT the lack of power really has me concerned. 16t front sprocket? That'll do it? Don't get me wrong but I didn't have to do anything to the zuki. I'm going to take your advice but do I have to do anything to the chain lenght?
Where's the best place to get the spocket and the 1/5 throttle conversion?
Thanks in advance.
Mike

A couple members have already swapped to a 16t with great results. Any pics of the new ride?

The 16t will work with the stock chain. 1/5 throttle can be ordered from rifleman - he's a member here. The best sprocket IMO is the z1000 stocker, as it has a rubber damper on it to absorb vibes. This is what I will be using eventually when I change my 08 over - I'll prolly order it from Ron Ayers.
