Hello. Going to pick up my '16 tonight. It will primarily be used as a track bike. I was really torn between the RSV4 RR and this. What it came down to was dealer support and parts availability. I had a 2000 Aprilia Mille R and had a horrible time trying to get parts. Liked the Aprilia but loved the ZX10r. Seems to fit me just right even though I am on tall side (6'2"). Should be perfect track day bike.

Welcome! I'm 6'4" and aside from hoping Zero-gravity releases their double bubble windscreen soon the bike is fine for me. I'm sure you'll love it too!

6.3 here and oem everything, on g4, rearsets on low and only thing I'd do before tracking this bike would be high on rearsets. I did change can to graves but that may be too loud at your track and did fender eliminator. All else is oem. Recommend metzler rr on both or rr on rear and bridge rs10 on front or if you're wealthy just a pile of rs10's for the rear. The rr's will last way longer.

Always had good luck with the Metzler.

The only soft tire that will take the g4 on the rear for close to 3k miles of good canyon-mountain twists. Power 3 will go about 3k but hard so spins stupid and the top belt is fabric so flays the hugger at the end if I recall. The rs10 front will last around 4k miles but keeps shape right to the steel belt, a plust, but the rr front seems to know exactly what I need to do. idk how else to explain that. By comparison, same loop, I get maybe 900 miles on rs10 rear at the steel and now getting less than 1400 miles on corsa rear, the diablo. Can't remember the miles for the V but think that's a bit more. imo the rr's are not lucky but really the best tire made for the 10.
