Try 2, for some reason the first post didn't post!


Hi all, so i just bought a 2005 ZX-10r!
I was riding the dragon 3 weeks back and went down! my Honda VTR1000f (Superhawk) hit hard and well it was never my dream bike, but man did I love that twin torque!
So I looked for a new bike.. this popped up and I read a review that said it pulled like a twin! and I was sold.. I kind of ignored the 'until 8K and then it's gets stupid"

So still nursing my injuries, 3 broken ribs, punctured lung and spleen, going to be another 5 or 6 weeks before I will throw a leg over her and give her a test but I'm PUMPED! and I a little nervous.. I have read every review I could find the one thing I took from it was RESPECT THIS BIKE!

I bought a hyperpro Steering damper and installed it.. read the PDF on tuning the suspension and set it up according to what it said as a starting point.

It came with BT016 tires, I'm not sure about them.. I had Michelin Power 3's (not the roads) on my VTR and loved them! so I'll the BT's but most likely swap out sooner then latter..

It's a great bike! The turn in will surprise you until you get used to it. It's also VERY easy to be over-confident on this bike. Be careful.
