Track day vid

Quite a cool vid from my track day at brands hatch uk.
I think it really shows the zx10r strengths and weaknesses.
Im able to enter the corners really hot but struggle with corner exit speed due to lack of grunt and electronics being a 2014 model.
Enjoy.

Is it the upper fairing moving around or have you got a head shake going on, I'm also out and watching that on my phone, but is that head shake?

If he's on the OEM ESD there's def a bit of head shake. I think the deflection on the nose fairing over-exaggerates it though. Can I guess you're on an OEM shock OP?

When in doubt... send it!

Thats the fairing flapping around. Gen5s fairings are flmsy as hell. Ive got lightweight screen on it which ads to the flex.

Uprated damper. Virtually no wobbles.
Mupo shock with 115 spring which has transformed the bike and tyre wear is now fantastic

You say a 2014 model but isn't that a gen 5? Also, that track looks perfect for the ZX! Fast sweeping corners and your rpms never drop below 7K. You still feel your lacking low end on a track like that?

I'm pretty sure he has a G4 with G5 plastics and G5 swingarm. Kinda like a frankenstein bike, mix of G4 and G5 lol

Right?

Kinda un-related question but, Doesn't the 5th Gen supposedly have a lil more mid range grunt than the G4's?

I don't see a whole lot to complain about. You are outclassing most( if not all) of the other riders. The bike looks to be working fine. Maybe it just feels a bit unstable. When you really put down HOT LAPS, this is the way it is until you get to the next level in your riding to gain better understanding and skill. Good riding Mate. We would have much fun riding together.

Its a 2015 with 2016 fairings.
That track is not too bad for a zx10r.
I only lost time out of the tight turn2.
Also onto back straight turn3 and a bit out of left hand turn coming back into the stadium section.
It may look like im doing good but compared to bikes like bmw and the r1 i was trying to keep with that day i was getting stretched out on those corners.
Elsewhere it was very fast and my times were good.
