My ZX track bike had a captive rear caliper - modified standard one - made rear wheel changes far easier. If you're interested in a truly useful mod let me know and I can give you the details :-bd

Put check frame for cracks on your list.

A Friend has one and he has a crack down a weld in behind the headstock about 6" back. needs airbox off to see it.
Searching tinternet, is seems to appear to often. Kawasaki are aware of it and have offered him a cheap frame but thats all.

Not my friends but link to ZX10 thread.

Layne I thought that was more on the 04-05 models not the 06-07 models or are these still affected.

I know they used to break the frames near the engine mountings from people attempting to stunt them.
