New from TN

Ahoy!

Just picked up my first Kaw yesterday and have been digging around on the forum for some info. I snagged a gen 3 zx10 for a pretty solid deal. I've had several suzuki's and yamaha's before but this is my first kawasaki. Looking forward to learning a bit about the bike from the folks here. I'm also in the market for some parts, but will be scouting the classifieds until my post count and registration is complete.

Welcome to the party!

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

good to know. my first objective is to repair it cosmetically. i believe it's already -1 up front and i'm going to be looking at the 1/5 throttle upgrade.

You should definitely do the 1/5 throttle upgrade, most bang for your buck by far then any other upgrade IMHO.

I think it may have the 1/5 throttle already. the damn thing is incredibly snappy.
