What was your price tally on the whole thing?
Yep you got it. GPS has an awesome speedo, but set a trip route and the accumulated miles reset. I was planning to use the bike computer as just an ODO for total miles on the bike and also maintenance crap. The current computer maxes at 64 mph and then reads 0, which sucks because it is 65+ mph most of the way to my work.
I would say it was under $300 for everything. I got the parts dirt cheap off of eBay and zxforum's classifieds.
And as I slowly unload my old parts I should help to recoup about half.
The single most expensive part was the front wheel, and it took a while scouring the 'net to find a decent one at a good price. Seems most are bent or the seller wants a left nut for it.
If I were to do it again I would hold out for some 06+ ZX10 front forks since it will create more options for front wheels. With the 04/05 forks I was stuck with the 20mm front axle. But I got the fork pair for well under $50, a deal I couldn't pass up.
Same as the rear wheel, I got the wheel, cush drive, rotor, axle and spacers and caliper mount for $40.
Along with the front wheel the most searching went into finding a nice upper triple for a decent price. Seems guys want a premium on that too.
Oh, I forgot I had to get a longer chain...
so it was around $400 for everything.
