Hi Guys, This may be a stupid question and may possibly belong in the stupid questions thread but I'll give it a go here. I have found what could be a great looking bike. 04 ZX10r with ohlins springs front and back with stock shocks as far as I can tell, PC3 and ignition controller, quickshifter for up shifts and GP style pipe, other bits and pieces of bling, owner claims 180hp for the bike... Not sure how true that would be, but I'm sure it's got more than enough for me.. The bike appears to be in great nick, cared for but is touching on just under 50,000km's. Or spending an extra 1-2k would you go for a 2008 and up CBR1000rr with higher k's again, with pipe and power commander, stock everything else? Reason I ask is, would the newer chassis designs make up for the upgrades on the ZX10r? I know the CBR1000rr's got excellent right ups for the 08-09 and topped all the comparisons until the s1000rr came out. I also have the feeling considering Honda haven't really changed the bike in almost 7 years that they must have been onto a good thing. So what do the resident netraidiens think? What would you go for? Low k CBR1000's are kind of out of reach of my budget, trying to keep it under $8k if I can. I also would like to find one with a few mods already done as I have already gone down the modding track with cars and realise how much money you lose at change over time. I'm also partial to this vintage of zx10r cause they do sound hell exciting. Still yet to ride an 04-05 though. Ridden a current gen zx10r and thought it was great as well but I realise it would be a completely different beast and possibly a more civilised one at that.
