Hi guys. I am from Russia, I have a 2018 kawasaki zx10r. i use it on track.
I want to share with you the process of building a motorcycle.
I use google translator, so maybe I will write some kind of nonsense))
In fact, the bike is almost ready, it took almost two years, so maybe there will be a pun in the description.
I decided to do everything with it that I didn't do with the previous Gen 4
First of all, the motorcycle was disassembled to the frame.
the photo shows all the wiring from the motorcycle and its weight on the scales, Her weight is 5.4 kg.
My motorcycle is from Europe and has an immobilizer, so I took the wiring and ecu from the USA zx10rr
This made it possible to remove the ignition lock and antenna, and the ignition is now switched on by the red button on the right
Then I dissolved the wiring, removed all unnecessary and moved the ECU to the front, as in WSBK motorcycles
After these manipulations, the weight of the wiring together with the relay controller is 1.6 kg.
ABS and an electronic damper were removed from the wiring. The diagnostic connector has also been moved forward. only the battery and the starter relay remained in the tail
it is very important for me to have a small brake lever travel, so I use brembo rcs19
I also installed a brake lever adjustment on the left side to be able to move it back when the brakes overheat. I wanted to have this on my gen 4, with brembo m4 and rcs19, but it turned out that with m50 it is not really needed.
after removing abs, replaced brake lines
I use aluminum sprockets and 520 chains on my bikes
the photo with the wheel shows the titanium bolts. in fact, almost all of the bolts have been replaced with titanium ones. engine cover bolts, pallet bolts, fork bolts, rear and front subframe, calipers, brake discs, adapters, sprocket bolts, clip-ons. some were bought, some were made to order
Of course, not everything is in the photo, just a small part
not a bad thing, but on the go, it's more convenient for me to use my starlane gps-3x. by the blinking lamp you can see that I am walking with acceleration and after each sector shows how much I am going in + or -
the off-season 2019-2020 was coming to an end and the motorcycle had to be assembled without realizing everything we had planned. hung up gb racing engine cover protectors, carbon frame and swingarm protectors, painted baikplast plastic and installed a protective guard on the right clip
this is how the motorcycle met the racing season 2020
compared to my generation 4, improved lap time by 2 seconds and top speed by 6 km / h on the moscow race way
on the 4th generation, I had problems with overheating of the brakes, on the 5th generation, when using the same discs, brake machine, pads and brake fluid, the problem disappeared. apparently this is due to the weight of the motorcycle and the M50 calipers. and this is on HH pads, with z04 pads still better
I also really liked the tires in the new size. 125/70 pirelli, lets you brake insanely hard
sc release was not bad, but this is a city track, I decided to put a mid pipe and a muffler arrow
it was nice to see the aluminum bracket for the muffler in the kit, everything together turned out to be 1.3 kg lighter
this is a good solution for kawasaki, oem intake pipes are very well made, there is practically no point in changing the entire exhaust to a stock engine, it does not give an increase in power and does not gain much in weight with a huge difference in cost
