My on going build of my 2010 zx10

First off, I'm not certain this is where I should post this so feel free to move if need be.

I'll keep it short and sweet. I bought the bike 100% stock with 170 miles on it in Janurary 2012. Not a few days later, the mods begun. Pretty much what you see is what you get. I just installed the 12 over evil swingarm to replace my swingarm extensions. I have had it to the 1/4 track ONE time and made a few passes with it. Couldnt 60ft the bike because it would just stand right up on me everytime. Best pass with a 1.69 60ft with STOCK sprockets was a 9.04 @ 161mph. Keep in mind this is the first time with this bike at the track, stock sprockets and I weight about 155lbs full suited. Next time out I plan to break into the 8's. I'm sure with at least a 1.4x 60ft, the bike will be well into the 8's. Here are some current pictures. Still waiting on my chain and chain guard.

Feel free to ask any and all questions you may have! Enjoy



The night I brought it home..

Great looking bike. What kind of seat is that and where'd you get it?

Did you make that shifter mount of buy it? I was going to get material this weekend to fab one just like it, but if I can buy one I may do that instead.

A good friend of mine used my stock seat and made that for me. He owns a upholstry shop here in Va Beach.




As for the air shifter mount, It's a pingel bracket. I'm not a huge fan of it, but it works.

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

this may be a really stupid question and im just curious i know nothing about drag racing. But going from the oem swingarm which is fairly thick and looks alot stronger than the one that is on there when your putting more strain on the bike and more HP isnt there an increased risk of that thing snapping? I mean it looks pretty small compared to oems. lol like i said im not sure if the design of it makes it stronger or what just curious

Chromoly steel that the extended swingarm is made of is much stronger than aluminum. And it also doesn't have to resist the lateral forces than OEM arm would during hard corning.

What don't you like about the mount? I've never seen a pingel mount in person, but it looks pretty much like what I had in mind for mine.

Do you ride around town like that? Cause it might be good for drag racing but does not look good at all IMO. Looks good dropped but the back is just way out of proportion.

TiGGi, i ride the bike everyday. I think it looks good as well as serves a purpose. To each his own.



The pingel bracket just mounts the shifter a little spaced out and now its not THAT easy to foot shift the bike. I still can, just is a pain most of the time. Once I get the bike fully back together, I plan to mess with the bracket and try to get the shifter to sit colser to the frame of the bike.





Thanks for the comments guys! Still a long way to go with this bike but its coming together!
