Does anyone have their ZX 10R yet?

Mine was held up due to the CN strike but it should be here this week! Unfortunately there's still snow on the ground so I'll still have to wait for a few weeks before I can drive it. SOMEONE must have theira already and is driving it! In B.C. perhaps? Let us know how it is!

There are 10Rs in the PNW, probably in BC. Sorry about the rail strike.

I've had mine for 6 days now.

Hopefully mine will be in either today or tomorrow...How was your first ride? Is it as nuts as I think it'll be?

I've got something to say... It's better to burn out, than to fade away!

Yes. But you're supposed to keep it under 4000 RPM for the first 500 miles, then 6000 RPM for 500 more...

The bike is tight, and turns and stops well. Give the brakes 250 miles to bed in before you do anything to them; I had to adjust the rear pedal to 'happen' sooner at 450 miles.

I am very much in love with my bike.

dbo, both Rob Muzzy and Kerry Bryant (VP product develpment for Jardine) have advised us to follow manuf. break-in procedure. Mototune's procedure can make sense for a racebike that you can teardown and rebuild.

I'm not religious about following the manufacturer's break-in limit, but for a $11,000 + tax motorcycle with an electronic brain that can remember abuse, I'm following break-in pretty closely, in case I ever need warranty service.

Plus, just as Mototune alludes, it gives me a chance to get used to the bike.

You can break your ZX-10R in differently.

I have had mine for over 2 weeks now.

I cannot say enough about the bike.

I love everything about it.

It is the first thing I have ever owned that scares me a bit.

I have owned alot of fast everything so that statement does have alot of merit.

Everyone will enjoy their bike greatly once they get it.
