I am looking to buy a used ZX10. Specifically a 2004. Are there any known issues or problematic areas I should look at when I look at the bike? Like the Yamaha's tranny. Things like that. I have already heard about a noisy clutch, so is there anything else like that, that would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

The only real problem the 2004 ZX10R apparently had, was two or three incidents of front wheel rim breakages, but was recalled by the factory. Just make sure if you buy one, the wheels have been replaced. But this was apparently only due to misuse (wheelying and stoppies!). The other problem was a bit of Headshake on hard acceleration, as it was difficult to keep that model's front wheel on the ground all the time!!!! (The WILD model!!!)

They had a little issue on some that say the alternators went but nothing to bad. To get rid of the head shake stick a steering damper on it.

i ride one with some mods and stuff and its the best bike i promise.

For every year you ride it, you have ten years of stories.
