This month’s best reader spe­cials

JUST GOT THE lat­est copy of the mag and had a read of the fea­ture with the ZX-10RR and SE. Read­ing Johnny’s verdict at the end of how he thought the money might be bet­ter spent on the stan­dard ver­sion, I thought I’d send in a pic of my bike as I’ve prob­a­bly spent SE money on it by now. I bought it new as the Per­for­mance model then had it de­cat­ted and a Woolich ECU flash en­abling the au­to­blip­per. It made 195bhp on the dyno.

Since then it’s had a set of Gilles VCR rearsets, I’ve short­ened the gear­ing, fit­ted an MWR air fil­ter, K-Tech DDS Pro rear shock, OZ Gass forged wheels, a Samco hose set, a Domino quick-ac­tion throt­tle and lately Max­ton GP30 fork car­tridges. To say I’m happy with the out­come is an un­der­state­ment. I would have liked to own a ZX-10RR but I’m not a fan of the matt black colour so I’ve tried to make a bet­ter bike out of the stan­dard model and I don’t think I’ve done badly. Don’t be let­ting Rutter beat that Kawasaki lap time soon! (er, sorry. See p16 - JM)

Lee spaffed a hefty wad on spec­c­ing up his stock ZX-10R
