Gen3 Kawasaki ZX10R owners please help.

So I bought a 08zx10 a few months back and I'm the third owner of the bike.

Wanted to see if there are any fellow zx owners nearby (spring/humble) area that wouldn't mind me going over their bike (less modded the better but if you know what's been done to your bike then that works) to compare how molested my bike is compared to how it originally sat.

If there's anything you need done, i.e. air filter, lowering links, oil change, etc. I am mechanically inclined and have torn my bike apart a few times so I would trade that just to be able to tear into another zx10 to compare.


I have the Service manual to help for anything else. I've done a few things to mine. PCV, Full exhaust, made a airpump simulator, Servo delete, HIDs, etc.

Just wanting to see how it's suppose to be.

I'm the third owner and the second owner which I bought it from did little to it and not much info from the first.


Motorcycles Unlimited tells me the front forks seem really stiff for stock but there are no signs of it being disassembled.
The fuel lines seem to be routed funny but some pics I could find are routed the same while others are different.
The connectors and harness seems to be moved around so wanted to compare that too( relates to above).

Just want to compare that's all.
Have my PCV installed and mapped for full yoshi but I have no idea how a zx would be without the full exhaust since it came with it.

Close enough LoL

Wouldn't say screwed but the few things I fixed already were done pretty sketchy.

Hi there, name is Aaron. Pretty sure we've met on another forum specific to our bikes. I'm in Spring and am lucky enough to have 2 Gen 3's. One of which I purchased out of the crate back in '09, the other I picked up last August. My original is mostly stock.

You're welcome to stop by sometime to compare and contrast.

Whoopie found my shocks to be stiff on mine as well. I think stiff is the norm for these.

I have a full exhaust as well so can't help you there.

Your harness should have been plug and play with the PCV I'm sure. My bazzaz was minus a couple wire taps.

Sorry I won't let your habit get to mine.
