Gen 2 ZX10r Mods

Gen 2 owners, What mods have you done on your Ninja?

I have done the slip on exhaust and put in some K&N airfilter.

I just want to see what else have you done on you bike.

Thanks

Mine has a slip-on, aftermarket rearsets, and a DB windscreen. I may gear it when my chain and sprockets wear out and add the 1/5 throttle mod.

Cut the oil pan? Elaborate.

Not really needed, from what I understand it's mainly for lowered bikes/ drag bikes.

I kid of course. Its your bike

First item is fix the brakes - they SUCK in stock form even for fast paced street use.
I used 2006 CBR1000R calipers with SS lines, Vesrah Pads, and good RBF600 fluid. You have to use 5MM spacers on the calipers when you bolt them one, but easy to do. NO braking issues at all now.

Picture with spacers...

Other things I've done for my bike that is a track day only set-up now:

Steering damper fix by P1 to make it functional as the stock Ohlins does nothing functional.
520 conversion with slight gearing change
Race body work with Carbon Kevlar fuel cell (light as all get out - came with used bodywork I bought)
Ohlins rear shock sprung for my weight and race tech front end rework by Andy at Metric
woodcraft rear sets
Two Bothers Racing CF single exhaust
Ninja 250 sticker for laughs.

It has been a great track bike with just now having about 5k miles with all on the track save for about 600 street miles.

He nailed it
I had mine cut because my bikes lowered.


Also where did you guys get the s.s. braided lines from? I bought the honda calipers and brakes months ago and never got around to finding the lines or the spacer I've read it needs

Regular SS lines for a ZX10R are all you need. The length is important, but fittings are the same.




Hit up True Value Hardware for spacers. Take a caliper bolt to be sure it will fit through the opening. Show them my picture posted above and they should be able to point you in the right direction.

I think mine has 14 calipers on it. Forgot to mention that. It's stupid fast for the street already so I can't justify the power mods for the price.

Tune your suspension
Brakes
Possibly sprockets
Throttle mod

You will have a new bike after that lol

Spend saved money on the track and learn what your beast is capable of if you haven't already.

Great info. I'm not looking to go any faster. More for the handling of the bike.

Can you give me more info on the throttle mod.

It's a hard PVC insert that mounts over the throttle tube to shorten the throttle turn. It's a very well known mod that a lot of ZX-10R riders including myself have been using for a long time. A fellow rider makes them himself and sells them for $25 shipped I believe.

Great on the street and track.
