The guy was firm on the price, would not budge even a little :/:
They come with an Ohlins dampner, I'm looking at an '06 all stock, 2200 miles, for $9k OTD

If you keep the stock damper, changing to a heavier oil makes it a LOT better I've heard. Supposedly on it's stiffist setting it's about the same as a GPR on 3.

EDIT: What about the 08? That thing is SEXY.

I have an 2006 ZX10 and I love it. I have lots of respect for her on the track, as well as the street. If you like the look of the 2008 ZX10 I would wait a few months, from what I understand they are going to get a new version of the "Tank slapping" Ohlins steering damper. I have not had a problem with mine, but I have heard of other people having problems.

IDK your going to have to spend some serious $$$ to make it handle, look and sound like the 999 or the r1. I'd wait for the busa to come out.

I like the new busa as well, wish they woulda done a little better, more power and not sure about all the body changes, wait untill I see in person, Is it better than the 999 and R1, those are both purdy dam good, U know that, kinda like women, not necessarily better, just different I,m also still looking at the MV, and all the new liter bikes, Why dont we just go in togather and buy 1 of each and just share, might be worth thinking about
