Low Profile Oil Pan

Not sure if I should be posting this here. I searched around for a little and was unable to find anything even with the search engine on the site. I have an 06 zx10r, currently lowered and stretched for drag and occasionally street ride. I am in need of a low profile oil pan for a decent price before I rip the drain bolt out from under my bike. Makes, models, companys anything would be appreciated on this topic.

Well from what I am told they are all about that price. The only thing I am wondering is it says I need a sidewinder exhaust and I currently run a full dual arka exhaust which I love. Really would hate to have to change exhaust I figure it would be compatible with my exhaust due to it being a shorter.

Its shorter on one side but slightly longer on the other (where the exhaust passes underneath) so not all systems fit. If you are going to stay with that system I would look into having the stock pan shortened. Cheaper than the DME pan. I'm not sure who is doing this for the newer 10s, hopefully someone will chime in on different companies shortening the OEM pan.

look into Adams Performance. Think they shorten stock pans. Pretty sure the low pro pans like DME or RPM are only compatible with sidewinders exhaust

GAZX10 built and tuned

Well I looked into adams performance and they didn't say anything about pans except the low pro one for the zx14. Anyone with knowledge of where I could get this done at?

I'd call around to local metalworking and welding shops. Should be easy for a guy with experience and the right tools. I would do some research and provide them with the desired dimensions. Maybe look at how deep some of the aftermarket pans are.

I'm actually thing about doing the same thing.
