Hey all, just picked up my first 1000 a few weeks ago, got an '04 ZX10r with a little damage, but the price was right so I couldn't pass it up.

Upgraded from a CBR 600 to this and seems to be quite the jump in power.

yeah its quite the beast everyone says it is. waiting for the speedometer, the last piece to make it completely rideable.

previous owner lowsided, put all new plastics on and I picked it up for 3,200 with 8500 miles. Put a new ram air and upper fairing stay on it, and like new, besides a dented tank. Should be a fun summer with the 10r.

Finally got a crappy cellphone pic the other day. I'd love to get rid of the Chinese plastics and get an OEM set.

So are you saying they are for sale? I'd take them off your hands.

Mine experience with them would be one of those horror stories. Put a set on an 04 636 and NOTHING lined up. The ones you have on your bike look pretty sweet... just dont know if id try taking them off :lol:

Glad to hear youre loving the bike. I just got my first 10r and its the 04 as well. All stock aside from the can. Enjoy the ride!!!

I've had all of the fairings off except the tail so far, and got them back on with only a little trouble. Theyre not perfect, but not too bad. I'd like to get a set of oem plastics for winter to repaint and go over the whole bike.
