I recently bought a ZX10R and went nuts with mod’s...

No I don’t feel they were all necessary, nor am I sooo fast that they were all mandatory, I just want to build as close to a Endurance Race Replica as I can afford...

So I ordered up some parts and when they came in, I started by ripping her down naked to begin my install.

Here she is naked & bone stock.

I started by installing the PCIII-usb in the storage compartment and ran the cable along the left side subframe with the OEM harness. I don’t exactly like the way the PCIII installed in the storage compartment, but I installed it this way as it was just the best way it fit for the cable length and the ability to remove it for tuning/re-programming. I am happy with the wiring though, it looks almost factory, zip tied in, and you cannot see the TPS or the injector connectors.

I also did my best to hide the TRE under the fuel rail.

Then I started on the suspension install.

With the suspension installed, I then moved on to the exhaust. I removed the radiator to install the header. This may not have been necessary, but the fins are sooo fragile on this radiator I didn’t want to deform any unnecessarily. Also while I had the radiator off installing the blockoff plates was a breeze.

Well here she sits now. She still has the stock fender & blinkers, she is still wearing the stock mirrors but I forgot to install them before I took the pics. (Looks better without them anyway and besides they are useless) It also is still wearing the stock rubber, but they are going to be abandoned tomorrow for Pirelli SuperCorsa tires.

Phase 2, which will start very soon will include the following:
Brembo billet master cylinder w/ remote adjuster
Galfer SuperBike brake lines (I already have the lines, but only want to screw with them once so I'm waiting for my master cylinder)
Attack Rear Sets
Attack Stand Mount / Caliper Guide
Attack Muffler Bracket
AFAM 520 Kit (17/40)
Bodywork (I'm undecided about which brand, but probably Sharkskinz)

Thanks for the comments,

Yeah, she will eventually be a 95% track bike, the remaining 5% will be the absolute bare minimum I can get away with to be street legal just for the sake of being street legal.

I have an R6 that is full race track only (used to race with WSMC) and it's a fantastic bike.
GYT Engine Kit (cam, thin headgasket, CDI box, ram air upgrade, total loss, clutch upgrade basket/springs/discs, etc)
Akropovic Full System w/ Ti can
Penske 8760 shock
The front forks worked
Sharkskinz
AFAM 520 kit
Nology ignition upgrade
To top it off the chassis was messaged by Computrack LA with the sweet geometry numbers.
Attached is a pic of me on the R6 at Fontana

But it is almost sickening to see it collect dust in the garage because I can never ride it on the street. No going for a ride with friends, riding to work; absolutely no riding at anytime unless it is on a closed course. I do feel the closed course is by far the safest and most fun place to ride, but there are just times when I want to be able to ride on the street...

However we are pretty lucky here in SoCal; we have the big track at Willow, the Streets of Willow, & Fontana all pretty close. Then a little farther out you have Buttonwillow & Parumph, then a little further still we have Thunder Hill, Laguna Seca, & Infinion...

Thats real nice, just good taste, quality and useful mods. Pretty much the way I would go if I had the funds.

Mines fitted out pretty similar except for the Ohlins forks and shock which would be so nice but I just couldnt justify the cost as much as I would love them.
