Hey folks, new to the site. Just traded my '06 GSXR1000 with 36,000 miles on it for a brand new ZX10. The handling blows me away. I really impressed BUT the lack of power really has me concerned. 16t front sprocket? That'll do it? Don't get me wrong but I didn't have to do anything to the zuki. I'm going to take your advice but do I have to do anything to the chain lenght?
Where's the best place to get the spocket and the 1/5 throttle conversion?
Thanks in advance.
Mike

The 16t will work with the stock chain. 1/5 throttle can be ordered from rifleman - he's a member here. The best sprocket IMO is the z1000 stocker, as it has a rubber damper on it to absorb vibes. This is what I will be using eventually when I change my 08 over - I'll prolly order it from Ron Ayers.

Sure, here ya go and check out the rear hugger mod. Oh, and another showing how easy it is to get used to the handling. So far this bike is effortless in the corners.

I'm doing the sprocket tomorrow.
