Performance Bikes (UK) - - Performance Bikes - JOHN BEN­NETT

I’VE HAD this bike a cou­ple of years and thought it was time for a re­build. ZXRs are heavy so I de­cided to put it on a diet, fit­ting a PVM forged al­loy front wheel and a PVM mag rear, both of which are 16.5in.

It has a 2005 ZX-10R front end with 320mm discs on home-made car­ri­ers. Other mods in­clude a 520-pitch chain con­ver­sion, re-valved ZX-10R rear shock, plus a car­bon fair­ing and seat, which help with the weight sav­ing, along with plenty of ti­ta­nium.

There’s still plenty of work to do but I love it even as it is. It has a day­light MoT but it’s not the most prac­ti­cal of sports­bikes re­ally – it hasn’t even got a side­stand... The next stage of de­vel­op­ment in­volves fit­ting a ZX-9R en­gine.
