  1. Gen 1 issues

    The ZX-10R
    I own a 2005 ZX10r, I purchased at around 11,000 miles now at 13,000. So far only basic maintenance has been performed.

  2. Gen 1: 2004-2005 Ride Height after Swingarm Swap

    The ZX-10R
    Hi everyone, I have recently purchased a Gen 3 swingarm to swap onto my Gen 1, since the original has a dent in it.

    The ZX-10R
    My zx10r is at about 30k miles and I want to check/adjust the valves(last check was at 17-18k by previous owner).

  4. Gen 4 vs. Gen 1 - handling

    The ZX-10R
    I've got a 2004 ZX-10R that is fully awesome and handles great... doesn't even have a damper, and I don't think it needs one. I've never ridden any of the later gens, but I assumed that they would handle as well or better. So it was really bizarre when talking with another rider about bikes, and...
