FYI - sold my 2004 in 2006 for $6,500 (stupid move & stupid low price, but the 06's were supposed to be lots better & that drove down the resale, for a time). I have owned 4 bikes since (trying to do better than that 04) & recently picked up a new 2009 GSXR 1K last August. After thousands upon thousands, I still have not found a bike I like better than the Gen1 ZX10. Sure, there have been a lot of improvements in the last 5-6 years, but IMHO the Gen1 (with some mild modifications) is truly the most fun I have had with a liter bike. It's the last thing I need to do to my wife (trust me I am really foolish), but I will likely pick up a green 04 or 05 ZX10 before it's all said & done :-)
My point? Don't sell unless you know for sure. I can attest that the grass is not always greener & that the Gen1s are special bikes fosho.
Dress for the slide & not the ride
