****SOLD*****2004 ZX-10R w/1900 miles (South Carolina)

Selling my time capsule '04 zx-10. Folks, this is as close as you'll get to a new bike. I bought it from the original owner, who had barely put over 1,000 miles on it because he owned several bikes, his own business, and basically just didn't have time to ride. He was a very meticulous guy, just like me. Always garaged, broken in by the book, and has had fuel stabilizer and sea foam in the gas since new. And as far as I know, it has never even seen rain.

I am well aware of the book value and what I am asking is much more, but this bike will be going to a niche buyer looking to buy an iconic motorcycle that is no longer being made. Kinda like when I paid $4,000 for a low mileage, 1996 CBR600 Smoking Joe's in similar condition a few years ago. I had always wanted one and they were getting harder and harder to find, so I felt a price premium was justified. Maybe you wished that you had bought one in '04. This is your chance to have it. Bone stock and unmolested. Bike is untouched except for the dealer recall back when new and they replaced the front wheel. Even has the original tires, which are in good shape.

Asking $6,900 firm. I am about 1.5 hours north of Atlanta.

What was done to the bike maintenance wise for the past 8 years?

Oil and filter changes, chain/cable lubing, etc and brake fluid flushes. As far as I know the coolant has not been changed though.

Oh and I cleaned out the fuel pump screen as a precaution due to its age and low mileage, which actually looked pretty good thanks to the Sta-bil that was kept in the gas.

And just so you know how obsessive compulsive I really am, I went out and bought an inch lb torque wrench just so I could tighten those fuel pump bolts to the 86 in-lbs spec

Act now and I will throw in two brand new OEM sprockets still in the package (that will upgrade you to -1/+1 gearing). I have a 16t z1000 sprocket and a 40t 2006 zx10 sprocket that I ordered from Honda East Toledo, but have yet to install.

Definitely a great looking bike. If this was 6 months and an 3rd gen ago, I would've made my way down to have a look see.
