AjR1's ZX10 Track bike

Discussion in 'Modifications and Projects' at netrider.net.au started by AjR1, Oct 14, 2013.

  1. Well I bought a new track bike the other month for an awesome price.



    Its an 08 zx10 so the same as my road bike, which means I will be more comfortable going from one to the other. Plus a man can never have enough spare parts.

    Came with Stands, Tyre Warmers, a Geni, and some other bits and peices.

    Mods when I picked it up were:

    Carbon fibre front guard

    Carbon fibre rear hugger

    Driven clip ons

    Motion pro throttle assembly



    ASV clutch lever and perch

    PCV

    Quick Shifter

    10.5kg Race-Tech rear spring

    Braided lines front and rear

    Galfer front rotors

    Dan moto exhaust

    and a full lenght can for lakeside

    Well finally got around to doing a bit more on the new trackbike.

    Removed the fairings. Dropped the coolant and unbolted the exhaust.

    20130903_140354_zps3ef151aa.



    Found that it had some Driven Smog Blockoff plates already installed. Bonus!!!

    20130903_143820_zps447f13ae.



    Pulled out some mesh I bought ages ago and cut out a rad guard and ziptied it in place.

    20130903_154231_zps4c819c3c.



    Fitted up the newly ceramic coated exhaust and refitted the radiator.

    20130903_154837_zps38d17dd8.



    In the mean time I sold the ZX6 to make some room and I can only ride one bike at a time.

  5. Sorted through some of the spare parts, which include a Brand new set of Forged JE Pistons, Rings and Wrist Pins.

    Out with the old and in with the new (Old coolant still looked damn good)

    But wanted to give some "Engine Ice" a go. Plus blue looks pretty. LOL

    The 2 sisters (same build date and all) enjoying the extra space.
