Searched-no luck.

I've heard of a few 06 ZX10s that had the valve spring retainers go south on them. In one case, the motor dropped a valve leading to all sorts of problems.

Is this a common problem for 06-07 specifically or any generation? I realize that any motor can fail at just about any time-especially if it's been abused. But, if this is common and happening under 'normal' riding conditions, I would like to know what I'm getting in to.

I'm looking at buying a used 06 and am getting a little nervous!

It's certainly not common and it begs the question whether such a failure was an "it broke", or a "he broke it", if ya know what I mean.
