I love stunt riding and watching it etc. but I don't think there needs to be a place on the forum for a bike that is very rarely stunted. There are plenty of stunting forums for that. I don't think maybe three members need their own section

Maybe we should clean house then. The ZX Network section has 9 sections that sees no activity. Ok to have those nine but not one more?

1.) What 9 are those? Just curious.

2.) I vote yes. For the most part Im not a stunter fan. I have mad respect for the skills they have. I respect the work it takes to learn it. The dents, dings, cuts, road rash, stitches, casts and general soreness from the crashing and for the life of me I wish I could do a mad stoppie. This is a ZX-10R forum and if there are 10R stunters out there then they should be more than welcome here to share in the community and knowledge base here.

If there's enough positive replies for one, I can make it happen



No, we're not going to make infinite unused sections. YSR has said he'll do if there's enough support for it. Ummmkay? :wink:

With all the talk yesterday about the site not being active I think this could be a great way to give members something new to talk about.

- dm, community support

See, most didnt even know they were there haha. Im not recommending to get rid of those, I was replying to Inkedzx10r's comment on 3 members needing their own forum.

as long as it doesn't flood the forum with a buncha bro crap that goes along with stunters i'm all for it, i think stunting is stupid but i respect the skill required to do it. my main issue is most stunters are tools, douchebags or bro's.

also, the zx10r isn't usually stunted because they tend to break apart easily from stunting, gen 1's cracked welds like they were gsxrs
you are right, but usually they gotta be modded like crazy, try it on a new bike and it will turn out bad.. I don't stunt at all and never did, never was my thing however if there is a segment of the zx-10 owners that use them for stunting there is no reason a site for that type of rider should be prevented from being discussed on the ZX-10R.Net site, I mean the site is not for old riders or guys that just ride to work and home or the track, there was no mention of that, its for any and all riders or anyone that enjoys the zx-10r..that would include stunters.. its only fair.. At the same time it does not mean they don't have rules and conduct expectations, no exceptions. Either way even this thread alone is a good start at seeing where the site could be more inclusive.

There is always questions about wheelies etc. Its a part of a lot of peoples riding habits. A stunt section would be a good spot for that.
People talk about wheelies every now and then, but that's pretty much where it ends. I haven't seen any discussions about any other stunts (but I don't read everything here). I suspect that there may be a FAQ "1. How do I wheelie? 2. How do I stoppie?", and then an occasional post once per season. Maybe someone could create a poll, but not like "are you ok with a stunt section?", and instead "if there was a stunting section, would you actively participate in it?"

If guys are running a zx10r and aren't already on here, adding a stunt section won't do it. I don't think we need a whole section for the little wheelies, etc. that is discussed. If it takes a stunt section to get guys here then they aren't advocates for the zx10r they are just advocates of the stunt world.

U wouldnt call jason brighton ernie vigil or nick brocha squids if they decided to stunt a 10 would u, and u might say that theyre pros well they started somewhere. I dont see anything wrong with turning a 10 into a stunt bike just dont do it in flip flops and a wife beater.

Stunting has def taken on a total professional foothold on the industry...sure its still demmed kinda thug or hooligan mainly because of the origination...Streets illegally and unsafe by more often than not young crazy ass white boys and the lottsa killer black, latin, asian, german, etc etc stunters.
Gear is highly recommended and in most of the new sponsors for pro stunting are gear companies.


Well you can go on about any bike can be a stunt bike but I talk to Nick Brocha, Eric Hoenshell, and Darius Khasabi and there are reasons they all use 600s. How and where your power is delivered in the RPM range is a big factor. Yes you can stunt any bike. Should you, no. I remember when D was stunting R1s like they were going out of style but then things slowed down and moved to lots and not freeways. You want a legit stunt bike then stick to a 600, you want to do highway highchairs and shit then a liter bike is fine. I stunted a 900 and it just doesn't feel right
Ure right, absolutely. If I was lot stunting today I wouldnt be doing it on a 10. But when I do which is next to never anymore (Allergic to handcuffs and REALLY dont like running so...10 7-10 is really enough for me, lol)

This has been suggested a few times over the years and has always been shot down. That's not to say things haven't changed.

If there's enough positive replies for one, I can make it happen
No, I totally understand its a diff breed so to speak.
If you dont mind I'll post a link of my local stunt section, which I started and see that model.

Yeah I heard about that, never saw it happen.
The guys on my site were more mature stunters for the most part maybe because it began as a local core forum type "Hub", so we had the gear threads and the flaming and arguments, lol
Never for get the time a local girl (Who may actually be a membere here...statred drag racing a 10 later) crashed out at a spot when a dog ran in front of her up on one at 70+.
21 yrs old...6 breaks (Clavicle, collarbone, 4 ribs, punctured lung, rash for days, blood clot, what else...oh, bat shit crazy on a shit ton of meds, hurting like hell and it got really ugly w/diff liabilities questions and choices made on scene, etc.
Oh did I mention I was suggesting a stunt section here, lmfao!!!
"I'm a ... Crack up"!!! lol

I stunt mine as often as it would allow, out on an open or fairly slow highway or bridge...fucking love it, and there is no feeling (For me) sweeter than giving a family from up north (Did that in the rain actually, beautiful smooth ass glass wheelie...watched the girl in the back seat go from bored as hell to excited, entertained and probably turned the on)...a bored single cougar, or car full of little kids a thrill and memory that's priceless.
But...I d alwasy assume I collect an average of 25-30 "Asshole's"! on a busy bike night. It is what it is, never said I was grown. :thumbsup:

A sick stoppie would be tits...I tried and tried but I think (To learn at least) the mods for a super effective stoppie machine are not cheap and pretty extensive...You can wheelie or rollin burnout 100% easier on a stock bike.

Very good points and well said!!! Check that link to my other site.
Not sure I would wanna spearhead this, Im actually shocked at all the response I got, why I took the time to respond to all the choice comments individually.
Ive never really had a stunt go bad on my "Nicer bikes" other than blown seals I think.

Did you read what you said Zilcho??? Not clowning on ya but you stated the obvious kinda...you havent seen any info or real discussion because you dont really have a set venure for that.
Were youn asking "Would I participate"?
Absolutely!! Ive got a shit ton of personal pics/knowledge/Tips/ memories-stories...and alot of the great video links.

You kinda belittle alot of really cool, professional, advocotes of a sport bike lifestyle even if alot of em are...Younger maybe, tatted, pierced, crazy, pimped, stripper loving, goofballs.
But again, look at the Jaon Brittons, Kane 1, Aaron colton who started stuntin pretty high level at 14 trs old! And dont for get my bro Jesse Toler!!!
Tampa, fl native...huge positive image of a great stunter.
I highly recommend a youtube search of Jesse...most recently know for...
Longest AND fastest distance stoppie EVER, got his name in the book last yr I believe...Guiness book of world records...

lol i wasn't joking, i actually do those three things, and its bout as far as i'll go too. wheelies are for coming out of a corner and letting me know how hard i'm pushing, but a wheelie isn't the most efficient form of acceleration so, i try not to do them. stoppies, been there, done that, went over the bars at 150, so i dont do that anymore either

Hmmm. The ZX-10R is not a stunt bike for one thing. Doesn't have graphics and stickers plastered all over it either. You'd probably really enjoy Gixxer.com
Um. I typed "ZX-10R stunts" on youtube and got about 182,000 results.
Now I know not all of them are about a ZX-10R stunting, but pretty sure there's slightly more than 2 or 3 vidoes that are.

So you're telling me (and who ever else that has/will read this) that you came to some bizzare conclusion that you're aware that each one of us is programmed to eventually die (between the ages of birth to the rare 115 years, but let's just take the average 80 years) and decided, like a few others who have lived or are alive, to buy a product and enjoy your life with it and at the same time in some shape or form cause others to find some enjoyment out of that?
And not comform to what others say in our brief pathetic 80 years of life on this planet?

You need to get your act together and stop living and enjoying life and conform to what others say.



oh btw..do you like Starbucks?
