Hey all, new to the forum..
I just picked up my first ZX10R (2005) and wanted to ask a quick question..

I've been riding a 04' 636 for awhile now and wanted to make the step up to the 10. Comparing the 636 to the zx10, the zx10 seems to run a little rougher.. I can feel the motor vibrate more then the 636 and it has a more deep throaty grunt sound when on the throttle. I'm just wondering if this is a normal thing or if my zx10 is running rough. The bike pulls hard in all gears and there is no drop in power in the powerband that I noticed. The bike has 3400 miles, only engine mod is an akrapovic slip on. I'm thinking that the bike might need a power commander to accommodate the engine running lean due to the extra exhaust exhaust flow

Just wanted any/all of your input..

I'll post pics asap!!

I have just picked up a 2004 10R and stepped up from a 636 also. I have noticed the same thing as u. I think its normal and i personally love the lower grunt of the motor. I have a muzzy slip on and love it.

you have both experienced whats normal for the 10r so don't fear its out of tune or something is amiss because its not.

These bike come rich from the factory as is so dont worry about the mapping jsut yet, when you start doing more power mods a power commander should go on the list but for now it should be fine.

Did you guys ever change the gearning on your 636's ? Ive got an 06 ZX6R and felt a big difference in power going -1/+3 and Im interested in the difference in power vs. the ZX10R. Yeah I know its about 50 HP but the actuall feeling of power.
