new to Kawi family

hey guys,

I just picked up a 04 zx10r with 4600 miles... there's some oil on the forks, and I saw little oil by the headgasket.. I gotta feeling the previous pulled alot of wheelies by bouncing it up...oh well, i hear it's a bad ass bike...

so ill be visiting here and I hope you guys have some room...

ps. I had a 01 r1, 03 gsxr1000 and now this puppy...

My name is Eyup and im 31 from North Jersey...

thats a beast of a bike, real leary! Make sure that your forks are rebuilt if you see oils leaking, if its stopped leaking that means theres no oil, so just to be safe, rebuild the front forks for sure. Also check for a headgasket leak. 4600 is mint!

so your saying rebuildem vs seal replacement? how do I know if there's a headgasket leak? I see some oil by it but it may have diffused over time...
