I'm looking at a 07 ZX10R and was wondering if there is anything I need to be on the look out for. The guy says it has 29k miles on it.
I own an 06 zx10r. Bought it with 15k mi. and have owned it for 1 yr. Only thing I've had done to it maintenance wise is replacing the stator and rectifier. It's a common failure on these gen 2 bikes. OEM fails somewhere between 15k-20k mi. They can be replaced with aftermarket units that claim longer longevity. I've only put about 4k mi. on the aftermarket replacement. So far so good.

Only other thing I've come across on the interwebz about this bike is the OEM valve spring retainers failing. They fail at various miles and with various use conditions. E.G. racing, commuting, weekend toy, etc. The OEM part is thinner and more prone to failing. The fix for this is to use the OEM retainers from a gen 3 (08-10) or aftermarket like APE valve spring retainers. I currently have 21k mi. on mine. Couldn't be happier.
