Newbie from Europe

Hello All,

Well it would be a short presentation ...cause I don't have that much English vocabulary ...

So I'm located in France within EU , ( please do not throw me too much stones ...)

And as i was looking for some informations on the ZX10-R 2006MY , i just found out this forum .

Regarding the choice of the ZX10R , in fact i usually bought Yamaha bikes untill now, but 2 years ago , some as----- stole my R1 from my garage (my car too) !
And due to some insurrance problem , i could not buy anything untill this year .
Friends and family told me you are too old and rusted now for a sportbike so buy something more quiet (i'm 40) , thus i purchased an used FZ6 S Fazer ... (please don't laugh) .
Well i have nothing against this bike , but after a ride of 500 kms , i decided that this bike is not for me ! I just feel myself not confortable on it .

So decided 1 month ago to switch on something else , and i remember that when i purchased the R1 i was hesitant with the ZX-9R Ninja , so decided this time to go with the Green Team.

Well my bike is almost brand new because i purchased it via Ebay from a lucky guy ....but that's another story and i will explain it when i will post some pics .

So i didn't ride enough in order to get clear feeling with it and some of you may know that in France we have a limited power output of only 106HP ...
So i will wait that i reach the 1000kms and go to my local Kawasaki dealer for the 1st maintenance service and after i will switch it to its Full power.

OK that's all for now .
Have a nice ride and take care on the road .

And if any of you is looking for something from there (Don't ask cheese please ) , just let me know.

Thanks
Remi

Welcome to the forum! I know all about the limited power of the French bikes. I see quite a few of them here in SW Germany. How much does it cost to take off the goveror? Do they switch out the ECU?

Hi Brian,

In fact it will cost me nothing as i will do it by myself , i won't ask them to do it because they would make some problems with the warranty after ....
And also sometime they would not take the responsability to do it . Regulation has been reinforced here recently ...you may know if you have travel there

In fact the procedure is quite simple , there is only 4 parts in aluminium that limit the airflow inside the intake pipes.
And one jumper to remove from the ECU , kind of connector very easy to pull off , that would restore the full power map.

Thankfully that there is no headcams to replace as by the past ...

Yes have to complete my mileage ASAP .

Thanks
Remi
