Welcome nice ride. My only suggestion would be to upgrade the brakes their kind of crappy. Caliper's off and 08 or later ZX6 or 14 are a direct bolt on and work much better. Enjoy the new ride. Oh and a Brembo radial master off an 07 or later R1 will complete the package for killer brakes.

Welcome to this site, and That ZX-10R... I'd suggest (for street use) Spiegler street fighter handlebar kit.
And riding solo, ZX6 rear shock linkage... And, 180/55 rear tire, vs 190/50, for the twisties, if your still running stock size.

Most awesome bike, and so well set-up, from the get-go... :thumbsup:

Thanks! I already have gotten that squishy feel on the front and will be working on getting a new set up. Big power deserves some better brakes:headshake:

Thanks! Tires are still stock size but when I wear these out I will look into the alternatives. Not sure why the previous owner thought to put no- name cheap tires on a ZX-10R after dropping big money on the other goodies...but they won't be on there for long:wink2:

For street/back road blasting, I've grown to love the Metzeler Interact tires. They use One compound across the profile.

They make the center area more wear resistant by tension in the cords.

Ahh I like the sound of that. Much appreciated.

From my experience they are extremely easy to install. I have never installed one on a zx10r 2nd gen though.

Here is a video of a guy installing one on a 2005 zx10r.

Many different products you can use, hope this helps!
Oh Perfect! That is exactly what i was looking for. Im ready for my speedo to not be 25% off :thumbsup:

I sure am happy with the one compound... Problem with mult- compound, was wear rates are different in them, And that makes different wear patterns at the junction line. That makes weird feel, in corners, just when you want to be feeling secure. :smile2:
