gen 5

  1. Gen 5: 2016- Front Rim rotor bolts stripped / broken

    Performance and Tech
    Bought my bike new in 18 just now replacing the OEM tires. I removed the rims myself to save money when having tires swapped. Front rim brake rotor bolts were extremely hard to get off using hand tools. It seemed like too much thread locker or incorrect tightening method from factory was used...
  2. Gen 5: 2016- LED headlights

    The ZX-10R
    What’s going on my fellow rippers! New member here. On my second 10 now, upgraded from a 2010. I’ve never really messed with electrical so cut me some slack lol. I’m wanting to upgrade my headlight bulbs to LEDs and just wondering if anybody has any input from personal experience. Looking for...
  3. I hate this bike

    Race and Stunt
    I have a 2017 Zx10r full bolt on... flash filter exhaust. I last season ran a -1 front sprocket but the front end will not stay down.. so I went back to stock. The OEM sprocket is back on it. I just roll raced a 2010 s1000 from a dead stop to a 30 then full throttle, and he put buses on me. This...
  4. 2016 ZX10R - Bloody hot???

    Performance and Tech
    I was riding home from work yesterday and the bike temperature went up and up and up, it would come back down but eventually with traffic the red check engine light came on and HI was displayed in the temperature gauge. It has never even gotten remotely hot before & I have the fan set at 85/90...
  5. Gen 4 to Gen 5 shock linkage swap

    Suspension and Tire Tech
    Hey ZX10R community. Sounds like this question may have already been answered, and looking to confirm/clarify. It appears from what I've seen is that the linkage on the Gen 5 provides a more linear travel. And that the Gen 5 link plates will swap over to a Gen 4 with some add'l mods needed...
  6. Gen 5: 2016- How to Videos

    Welcome Newbies!
    Hi All, As the weather has now turned in the UK i have decided to do a few mods to my 2017 ZX10RR. I thought i would share my YT Channel where you will find videos on how to install R&G Rad Guard, R&G Tail Tidy etc... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCm3PiRXL9Isl0Pk3l9NMDYg I have also started...
  7. Gen 5: 2016- New Race Bike Build - With Race Results and Videos :)

    The ZX-10R
    Well it's been a good year, I bought a 2013 ZX10R last year to replace my then race bike, a 2008 CBR 1000RR. Right out of the gate, I loved the ZX10R. I have been racing it this entire season (my first full season racing) and it's been really good to me. So far this year, we have been racing...
  8. Gen 5 track bike build no race ECU

    Performance and Tech
    This is the first time I'm doing a full race bodywork bike, but the owner wants the stock harness intact. Usually I always go to the Kit ECU and harness. My question is; how many - if any - of the emission systems can I remove without throwing codes? I have a feeling I can pull most stuff...

  10. Gen 3 & 4 with RSV4 tail

    The ZX-10R
    After a pointless conversation with a buddy who has a Gen 3, about how it'd be nice if Kawi put a little more design thought into the tail sections. We both mentioned the RSV4 as a pretty good standard, so I thought I'd waste a little more time mocking up what this would look like...
  11. Gen 4: 2011-2015 Tail Light Check

    The ZX-10R
    As I have been eye balling & grilling the 2014 ZX10r I have come to come across the issue of integrated turn signals on the rear but have only noticed them on stock versions via India while in the US it is not intergeated into the tail section, and the only manufacturing of aftermarket to come...
