My loyal 10's time with me is done. I put the last coat of wax on her and removed the final bits of non stock parts. Left the CF tank guard. Just couldn't stand to take that away from her too. She was my second. A replacement for her twin sister that was mortally wounded. I think she's shining more than she ever did. ...a last plea for me not to trade her in... but alas, the deal is done...

Going big and black tomorrow. 07 ZX14!! Got to pull the box off her crate after she came off the truck. I swear i think I heard a growl as the box was opened! Gota club dyno night ($10 pulls) Saturday afer this. gotta get those break in miles quick! Want to get a base b4 the mods begin! How many HP do you think Givi (or Corbin) hard luggae adds?? :crackup:

Congrats Miykl. Make sure to post some pics tomorrow. It's kinda sad to see some of the early owners selling their 10's and moving on, but at least you'll still be around, and with a ZX-14 no less.

ya... I go back and forth a lot... sell, keep, sell, keep... Just couldn't justify two pure sport bikes. After wrecking the 999R and the insurance pay off, I'd be a fool not to keep it b/c of how little I now have into it. The 14 should be fun. hyperfast comfortable sport touring. been wanting to do some cross country rides for a while now. be looking for my posts looking for free lodging! Or at least a beer!

Especially the rare blue ones. Not too may of us around. Mine will probably be on the chopping block pretty soon too.

I dynoed 2 zx14's about 3 weeks ago, 1st 14 had full muzzy, PCIII and TRE after a few warm-up roll on's she was pushing 169HP (SAE) and ust by looking at the air/fuel graph, I thought it could use some tuning.

and the other one had the muzzy slip-on's and PCIII and pushing 163hp (SAE)





Same day I had 4 busas on the dyno some stock some with full exh systems and the best one did 156 hp what stock ones were pushing about 150-151
