Hi Guys

Nizaam here from Cape Town, South Africa. Took delivery of my Gen2 10R last week. Coming off a slightly tuned Honda CBT1100XX Blackbird, this green meenie has to be the craziest bike I have ever owned (my 5th bike).

Its got a full titanium Two Brothers system with carbon side can and raised pegs (which I find most uncomfortable). My only gripe is this bike cannot launch or my balls are only beginning to drop as a result of this powerhouse. Anywhere over 50% throttle in 1st or 2nd it wants to flip over so lesser bikes are schooling me. On a roll tho its a whole different story. I've had some roll ons with Hayabusa, K1300S and S1000RR all club riders with experience and this little 10R destroys them on a clean roll. It's wickedly fast. How do I overcome this wheelie issue. My Blackbird makes less power and weighs more but I can launch that bike no hassles. Do I drop the front as I already have an adjustable swingarm link installed. Does it helps keep the front down?

Sorry for the long post, very excited to be here. First fast Kawa, my other one is a 94 ZZR600 so very impressed with this 10R but also very scared of it as I can swear it wants to kill me! ?

ohhhh Chappie like bike - Chappie like bike!!!


Gen2 Represent!


Edit - for the launch issue, this bike (as most if not all OEM bikes) was gifted with an exceptionally shite rear shock thats even unstable with my 140lb skinny ass on it. Id opt for better valving at least or just get a new one. Also you could set it up with a strap on the front but i wouldnt wanna ride around slammed in the front but for an event thats what you'd want, strap it down. Lowering the forks is another option for some people. Thats only something id do to a dedicated 1/4 mile bike though. Cheers, mine is the same color.

p.s. looks like you might need a new rear soon.
