Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R ABS – Wrap-Up Trackday delight.

Our ABS-equipped ZX-10R, a 2011 has performed superbly on the street and admirably on the track, thanks in to a few affordable modifications.

We handed our over to Ken Hill, an instructor at the Yamaha Champions Riding as well as a private riding and part of faster­safer.com . Hill up thousands of trackday miles and a handful of mods that he offered solid performance while remaining within our $1,500 spending cap.

A Lee’s Cycle Service’s ECU flash ($450; leescycle.com ) a revised map based on that of ’s race kit ECU unlocked the engine’s potential. This alone boosted the engine’s output 11,500 rpm and raised the stock rev limit to 14,100. Hill installed a Muzzys Catless exhaust with street-core ($489.95; muzzys.com ) offer­ing an weight savings.

The ECU/pipe produced 174.2 peak with as much as a 25-hp achieved across much of the 2,500 rpm of the rev range.

Hill enlisted Mike at MC Technologies to assist with the An AMA crew chief and suspension Canfield felt the shock was too soft overall, particularly so in the part of suspension travel. He found the stock damping’s stack setup to be too light, the valving to open early.

our target budget didn’t for a Race Tech Gold kit, Canfield worked Race Tech’s Paul to come up with a new valve for both compression and rebound was much more aggressive; also cleaned up a few internal and used Race Tech high-quality suspension fluid putting it all back together. All the shock makeover, including a spring, was kept at a very $375 since we RR’d the ourselves.

SIMPLE MODS: Rizoma System ($133 with rizoma.com ) offers protection inadvertent brake lever can be installed on clutch side as GB Racing high-impact nylon ($266.29; orientexpress.com ) easily over the clutch, alternator and covers.

We stiffened the front to match the increasing preload and compression from stock, but that was all the Big Piston Fork required. the ZX-10R comes equipped an Öhlins steering damper a clicker knob, in stock it offers no discernible range of Canfield installed a replacement available from Öhlins, a fix that enabled damping for improved stability at speed.

The is summed up nicely by former World Champion Scott who rode the bike for two days at Park in Northern California. I like this ZX-10!” exclaimed with his signature grin. “I can’t believe how it is; it’s as good as some of the I’ve had.”

The Kawasaki ZX-10R in this is certainly impressive, mixing big performance and excellent streetabilty and reliability. Aside from a few oil brake pads at 6,850 and countless trackday tires, our Kawasaki ZX-10R has been an incredible feat given all we’ve asked of this
