sup guys

wassup guys,

Im from Northern Cali and recently picked up a Gen1 Magma Red ZX10r. I bought it from a guy that had it sitting since new because he never got around to turning it into a straight track bike. Bike only has 358 miles! Has all original everything.

Looking forward to being apart of group. I am not new to forum so already know how wonderful it is.

See you guys around!

-Phi

Keep checking eBay. In the mean time plasti dip might be a cheap temp fix.

thanks! theres one on ebay but the guy wants over $500 for a tank with dents. thats ridiculous. i'm thinking about just buying paint and having the current one redone. get all the little dings out and have a freshly painted tank.

Welcome, PM MrMoto73, I think he just replaced his magma red tank with a new one, he might sell it, not positive just trying to help you out.

I was wondering where he got info I was selling! Lol. I wish I could have sold him a tank. I am still looking for a nice magma one myself. The orange one will be for when I do the color swap on the silver.

OP! Welcome to the site. Sorry I couldn't help ya out. You might try powder coating the tank you have. I might give it a go with my magma one. Check with 06blackpearl. He does powder coating and he does a supreme job from what I see others posting about his work.

I DON"T HAZ ANY SNYDER PROBLEMS

haha, i did a wide search for one in hopes to find one and one of your threads came up. Itll be impossible to color catch this with powdercoat. i already went ahead and ordered one from a company on ebay. going to take about a month though.
