Hey everyone, long time reader of the site but new poster :)

Recently had my gsxr stolen and have been looking at a used 04 zx10r.

Very low km for the year, and in great shape.

However, I'm just wondering about some generator issues I've seen floating around on previous posts.

Is this something I should be concerned about? The bike has only about 5000 miles on it, but wondering if the generator issues have been resolved, If I could see any signs when shopping around or whatever info you guys have when looking into purchasing used.

I don't mind doing a little work if needed for peace of mind, but if it's just a Band-Aid for a bigger problem that was never resolved should I avoid the first generation?

Thanks!

There is a recall on them i believe.....some models.

If you feel inclined, you can swap the effected parts to the 05 parts.....I think it mainly a spacer and thrust washer...?

Best i can recall.

Yeah I think that's what I've read here.
I don't mind doing the work really, but I'm just wondering if this model is worth staying away from over it.

Just wondering more because I'm a safety freak. But if the fix has worked for people and it's not just a Band-Aid I don't mind doing it :)
