Very nice.

Can't believe you got rid of those beautiful stock pipes.

I think, because the tires have 1500 straight line miles, when I get it past the flat spot it wants to turn in more.

The bike purrs like a kitten, even with the M4. I put the baffle back in and I think that helped some.

I smoked Zimmers on his 08 1000R.

And balance point was found inside of 10 mintues on the bike. :happy:

After 6k RPMS this bike SCREAMS! It is sluggish on the low end, but my understanding is I can probably go -1 and take care of that.

The liter bikes I have owned are an 02 954, 06 1000RR, 08 1000RR (salvage) and now this 08 ZX10. This bike, is by FAR, the greatest of them all.

We will see about its reliability in the future. Oh yea...and when the season starts I will give it a whirl at the track.

I wonder how a passenger will like it.
