Glad I rechecked the numbers before I changed the spring.
That is good to hear. Like I said the bike feels great...oh and I tested the bags yesterday....11lb capacity my ass, I had 20lbs of tri tip in one bag

If you care to, get some help to check your sag. I am 200lbs and was low 16mm below sag numbers. I could make up 10mm with the preload adjuster, but would be dragging ass with loaded bags.

PhukDD Panels finally arrived, pick them up on Saturday. For the record I ordered them on March 24.

PhukDD Nope to bag panels. Think this is week 6

I am going to play with my own Ti pipe until this is available. The 2011 ZX10R header is Ti. I bought a header, I am making a Ti mid pipe and already have a Ti can. I cannot imagine theirs will be better on the dyno, but I am willing to test them. All the pipe manufacturer's tried to make a better header for the 2011 ZX10R and all failed. The stock header with just a mid cat-eliminator and can made the best power. Please let me know when they will have their's ready. My dyno guy is cheap and loves to play with these kind of things.

The ZX10R header has a tiny bit larger primaries, but about 1.5" longer (again, the primaries) with a mid 4into2into1 setup. The SX has the shorter tubes that just dump 4into1 straight into the pre-cat. That has to be very restrictive and hurt the low/mid range on this bike.

57x DD, did you get your color kit for the bags yet?
05-06-2018 11:01 PM
57x Funny, this has to be the first rear light set I am OK with. I have no plans to do a fender eliminator.

I keep hoping that Zero Gravity will wake up and make a touring screen for this. The stock SE windscreen is decent, but I know there is better to be had out there.

Woolich is getting 228 to the tire, and that with a stock exhaust. There is room in there I think ........... I am working on a 2011 ZX10R stock header swap and plan to make my own mid. I already have the header, so time to get busy. I plan to use the Woolich tune as a baseline and hit the dyno, but with an exhaust where we get a better sound and more power I expect.

PhukDD Let me know when you guys find aftermarket parts. I want a smoke screen, and we need a fender eliminator.

JBear Change is bad.

KawiKid66 Picked mine up Friday. 300 miles already and it's great. Bit less grunt than my 2016 H2, but we'll fix that. Woolwich is pulling 228 rear wheel horsepower after a flash, other than that stock. To whomever said this isn't a sport/tourer hasn't a clue.

I am going out to ride again today, and hope these are not "special" crap OEM tire look alikes that are a throw away.
I have not noticed any issues with them, but our asphalt may be a bit warmer than yours. I am sure I will toast the rear by the second oil change so will probably get P3 ‘s then
