Hi everyone - just thought I'd say hi from Cape Town, South Africa.
Got my 1st ZX10 a week ago. She's a stock standard (black) 2006 model, with a genuine 7000 km (4375 miles)
I'll post picks as soon as I get her back from my mechanic - I took her in for a service (change all fluids etc) and to also get a quote on removing the cat and some baffles. She'll also be Dyno tuned and get a Power commander at the same time.
The reason I'm altering and keeping the std exhaust, is that I think it's one of the best looking stock pipes I've ever seen on a bike, but I'd like to give her some more "'linear'power and bottom end grunt, which I'm hoping a Power commander with the exhaust mods will acheive (Plus it's cheaper than getting a full system)
I've had bikes since the early 80's (yup - I'm not that young any more) and have previously owned a Honda VF750, CBR750, Kawasaki ZZR1100D, KLR650, Honda VTR1000SP2 and have just sold my Honda Blackbird a few weeks ago. Must say - I loved my Blackbird (2006 with full akros and PC), but since my wife doesn't ride pillion any more - I thought I'ld get a last sportbike before settling down for a sports tourer again, the ZX is 50kg lighter than my Blackbird - it feels like I'm riding a 600
She even makes my previous SP2 feel heavy.
Anyway - thought I'ld introduce myself - will post pics and give more details of the gains I hope to get after the PC and Dyno.
