I can never seem to leave well enough alone.
Akropovic header and mid from a 2014 Z1000
Muzzy exhaust can from an 03 ZX9R (I have the header and mid for sale from this if anyone is looking. PM me)
I will have to cut my Akra mid pipe to rotate it down to clear my Ninja factory bags. Damn I love the sound of a Muzzy can.
I will be putting on the Slipper/Assist clutch from the 2015 Versys. I can't wait for this one. They say it is a one finger pull, you get a great slipper and it fixes the screwed up mess of the lack of oiling to the clutches on the Ninja 1000 all in one change. The only down side it I will lose most all of the engine braking, as both the slipper/assist clutch lessens this, as well as the Ivan's tune. Not a huge deal, and I will be putting on a brake upgrade a couple paragraphs down.
I have figured out that it seems possible to swap on a 2011 ZX10R swingarm on to this bike. I picked up a swingarm complete on FleaBay complete with caliper/axles/spacers/cush, found a Kyle Racing linkage, 2017 ZX10R Showa shock, new wheel bearings (25mm). I also am doing a 520 chain conversion while I am in there. The front pivot bolt and all spacers are all the same between bikes. I am hoping the shock/linkage location is the same between the swingarms. I looks at a glance, but it is hard to tell with the Ninja 1000 swingarm on the bike. I am just waiting on one more piece to confirm.
Next, I found a tore up 2007 Aprilia Tuono Factory with a blown engine cheap. I will be swapping the Ohlins/Brembo front end complete on the Ninja and later figure out how to adapt the OZ rear wheel on the ZX10R swingarm. The rake and trail on these bikes is nearly identical. I used to have an 07 Tuono Factory, and I have never been on a bike with better brakes. Scary good brakes. Now, to find an Ohlins rear shock without taking out a mortgage to complete the suspension upgrade! The 2017 Showa will have to do for now.
All of this I expect to shave a ton of weight off this heavy beast, and give it ZX10R-ish handling.
I will take some pics of the swaps as I do them.
