Thanks! Hopefully up at proving grounds it can make some passes with no issues. Be cool to see your car in action too!

Thanks Chris and hell yea!



Ordered up a BMC Race Air Filter, Schnitz Coil Kill Wiring harness, MPS Electronic Ignition Kill box, DME Air Shifter Mount and some new spark plugs today. Going to be a busy weekend next weekend

Also got the front lowered about 1 3/4 last night and figured out my lowering strap brackets from the r1 fit perfectly on this bike. Hopefully take it for a spin this week with it lowered/stretched and see how poorly it rides lol

Thanks man! Hope it rips lol. Getting a little nervous its going to go slower than the r1 did





Finished installing the chain tonight. Went with a black 160 link 525 EK MVXZ chain and ended up cutting out 5 links. Could have went with 4 links to get another inch out of the swing arm but figured the long chain would probably stretch a bit and then I would run out of adjustment if it did.

This bike also uses abs type grooves in the rear rotor to get a speed reading. Since the longer swing arm, the wiring would have reached but would have looked like poo and been really stretched. I cut into the harness and extended it about 12 inches and tucks in nice on the swing arm and looks pretty good I think.

I took it on a little rip after all that and it spun pretty hard in 1st almost every time I got on it. Seemed to hook pretty good once, but then seemed to be spinning just a bit at the top of 1st. Granted it was a bit wet/damp out but I'll be curious to see how it hooks on nice try pavement with a street tire.






Depending on money I might try and get it tuned on 87 before proving grounds. Was thinking of going with mr12 race gas but at 150 for 5 gallons and being harder on the engine, I think I'll pass unless I need the boost to get it into the 8s.

That sure would help me run faster without getting a rider mod lol. I think it'd be badass to have a turbo bike, maybe someday!

Your car going to be ready for pg?

lol, thanks! Always fun to have a project to putz with. Yea I know it probably wouldn't get traction last night but thought it'd do better than it did. The tire on it right now is a sport touring tire that has a pretty hard center so it can last a long time. Hopeful that by playing with the suspension settings a bit and a more normal/sticker tire that it'll hook on the street from a roll.

Re: Brad's New Bike - '12 ZX10R

Not to be too OT, but it doesn't look like it. I have no time to mess with it and I'm trying to track down a broken driveline part. Took me 4 weeks to pull out both rear axles, reinstall and fill fluid. That is how much time I have.

Re: Brad's New Bike - '12 ZX10R

Got a few things done this week/weekend.

First thing I started to tackle was to replace the spark plugs, install Graves Block Off Plates and change the air filter



The air filter was just plain nasty...



There was even a good amount of bugs in the frame leading to the air box.


Then installed a MPS Engine Kill box for the air shifter. It fits perfectly where the stock exhaust servo sat. Probably throw some velcro down once I finish wiring up the air shifter solenoid.

^Can also see the Power Commander 5 installed on the side of the battery too!

Was able to get the air shifter cylinder installed as well. Used a DME mount, made it stupid easy, and parts I had left over from the r1. Using parts from gainger ... 5ZEE4 - Air Cyl for the air cylinder, 6JJ52 for the Solenoid and 4TAE9 which is a new longer clevis/yoke. Will most likely run it off nitrous so I can use it on the street and not worry about running out.


The guy that flashed my ecu said he modified his ram air and the bike went crazy lean and he said it felt faster after messing with the tune. Figured I might as well follow suit and give it a try.

The stock ram air has a lot of foam and what they call a 'birdcage' in there. Interwebz says its to help keep noise down but I just want to make the most powa I can. So time to get all that extra stuff out of there!

Took out all the foam, birdcage and a little flap that looked like it'd reduce air flow. Finished picture:

Will finish tomorrow as I wanted to get 2 screws to block off little holes to help keep as much air flow as possible

Installed the Brock's clutch mod to get rid of the slipper clutch and also installed their heavy duty clutch springs. Hopefully helps the clutch last longer on the track.


Still have a bit more work to get it fully ready for proving grounds but it should be ready!

Thank Mike! I hope it can run some 8's someday but I've gained a bit of weight and don't know how well it'll do with the stock shock on it. Probably not at PG but if it can go faster than 9.5 I'll be happy.

Think about the only way I'd be a good race for Mark would be if I sloss'd him and went on the second yellow if they don't have a pro tree

I know Nate said he wanted to try and get a run in during the grudge racing so I better make sure to be on my game

Re: Brad's New Bike - '12 ZX10R

Finished putting the bike back together Friday and took it for a spin on Saturday.

Installed Power Commander's auto tune which you set a desired target a/f ratio and the piggy back tries to shoot for the targeted ratio while riding and then offers suggested changes to the map when you come back from the ride and download the trims. Seems to work pretty slick and bike feels a bit faster after the tune. Also trying out 87 octane on it and all seems well.



Also installed Driven Bar Ends and a GB Racing Alternator Cover.

When I hooked up nitrous to the air shifter off the bike to check for leaks on Friday nothing leaked. Filled my 2.5 lb bottle yesterday and went to go try and it out and it leaks from the solenoid A couple test hits sealed up the solenoid and was able to get it to work a few times on real easy 4-5 and 5-6 shifts on the highway. Tried again on the way back from a cruise and leaked really bad and wasn't able to shift the bike. Going to pick up a new solenoid during lunch and put it on and hopefully that's my only issue.

After that only things left to do to the bike before proving grounds is to have Paul swap on my drag radial and put on the rear brake. Would like to get my trailer rigged up to use my trailer stand setup but thats kind of a luxury if I don't have the time.

Fingers crossed for going fast next weekend!

Re: Brad's New Bike - '12 ZX10R

Turns out my regulator was just set way too high for the air shifter. Looked at the gauge and it was pegged past 200 psi. Dropped it down to 140ish and the leaking stopped.

Took it for a test ride and it worked perfectly, even from 1st to 2nd full throttle where the r1 never seemed to work right for that shift.

Got the Pit Bull Trailer restraint all mounted up on the trailer last night. It's pretty slick as it doesn't compress the suspension or anything and can take the mounting parts off so if you want to use the trailer for something else you don't have a big motorcycle stand in the way.



Might still mount a chock that would be easily removed after I take it for a test spin if the front tire bounces around

Re: Brad's New Bike - '12 ZX10R

Pit Bull Trailer Restraint System worked pretty slick, threw a strap around the front tire to help to keep it from moving around when hitting bumps. GTO pulled and camping gear just fine this weekend up to BIR, rear end was squated a bit low when loaded up but drove no problemo.



Bike did pretty good at the track. Got close to my 150 trap goal, best of 149, and hit my goal of doing better than the r1 first time out.



Best time was 9.247 @ 148.76.




http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMk73NFVGXs&hd=1

The only issue at the track was the air shifter deciding not to work. Ended up taking off the bottle and whole setup and just foot shifting all weekend. Giving up on using nitrous for the air shifter for now and going to try just using air from the swing arm.


Thinking if I can get my 60' times down and the air shifter it's got a 9.1/9.0 in it.

Re: Brad's New Bike - '12 ZX10R

Hell yeah Bad Brad!

Good thing I didn't race you because it would have gotten my ass handed to me. That air shifter might help a small amount on each shift that could add up to a tenth for sure.

Good seeing you keep at it and it will click a 8!
