Noticed something about the swingarm today, looks like the top portion of it the paint is all orange peeled/rough, almost like it was resprayed horribly. Also there's some slight indentations on the top leading edge as well. My 2014 doesnt look like this at all, paint is smooth and no indents. Does anyone else's swingarm look like this?

My paint looks like that, but I haven't noticed the indentation before. I'll grab some pics when I get home tonight and update

EDIT:

Excuse the scratches, but here's a pic of the paint on the left side.


The right side I have some paint worn, but I can feel the same indentation with my finger. It may not be as deep, but :dontknow:

Thanks for checking it out for me, I looked at some swingarms on ebay and they too have the same orange peel and indentation, so I guess its nothing to worry about

Also does anyone know if i eliminate my key switch ignition ill be able to get rid of these fuses and associated wiring?



Also looking to get my regulator relocated either with this bracket: ZX10R REGULATOR RECTIFIER RELOCATING BRACKET which im pretty sure this guy has in his youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yPZIKEu4x_A or fab up my own. Leaning towards the pre-made bracket though since my fabbing skills are slim to none.

Plan on selling it, just havent gotten around to listing them up. I'll probably start a thread in the FS section next weekend.

I live right down the road from you. I am talking to a friend about his fairings. How much was the motoholders intake tube?

Ah i didnt realize that, yea keep a look out for my FS thread if you still need parts, i'd prefer to not have to ship them out. The motoholders setup was 190 euros, about 210 shipped for the fairing stay and tube.

Reactive Carries a nice kit that serves two purposes. One is to provide an oil catch tank and keep the airbox oil free and also a rectifier relocator bracket. You will have to extend your wiring harness by about a foot so it can reach all the way there. I did it with no problems, just had to get correct gauge wires. It's in my build thread. I did order this kit recently and look forward to installing it. It's a bit spendy but apparently a Kawasaki Race Kit (which does the same thing) is about the same amount.
