  • 05 ZX10R Rebuild

    Hey all,

    I'm getting in early to start getting ideas/understanding of what needs to be done/bought/costs.

    I'm looking to probably rebuild my motor and gearbox in the next year.
    Although there is nothing major wrong with my engine currently, I'm of the opinion she's getting a little tired.
    Probably looking at beefing it out as well, maybe get some more HP running through it.

    Anyone have any parts websites they can recommend?
    places to use etc?

    possibly looking at doing some/most of the work myself or with mates when it happens.
    Any help/information would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    I'm no expert, but step 1 should be a compression test, to see if the rings etc are still ok

          High compression pistons from yoshimura,
          whatever piston rings they suggest,
          thinner head gasket,

          get your valve springs checked for wear, if they're ok get them shimmed and
          if you can afford it a stage 1 cam

            It will be an expensive project. Personally, I wouldn't have thought it was worth it unless the engine is pretty much rooted?

            I suppose new cams, rings+resleeve and a thinner head gasket would be a good place to start for engine mods. You may even try Kawasaki, I'm not sure, but they might sells parts intended to convert stock thou's to superbike spec.

            Anyway, good luck with it.

              Ben - would love to slap a turbo on there haha

              Cheers lee, will look into those pistons.

              Ryder, the way I ride and the comp the engine has at the moment, I give it a year maybe 2 tops before it needs doing. hence I'm getting a jump, probably planning to try get this done next winter.
              Starting to plan early so I have an idea of costs/things to do etc.

                Unless you're looking at dropping big dollars on it, I'd just stick with a full rebuild, done by someone with experience, not DIY. A motorbike engine really isn't an ideal first engine to rebuild. I reckon you should drop the fluids, take the engine out of the frame, give it a good clean, then drop it off to someone.

                If it's bought back to original spec, you'll have heaps more power than you currently have. You could put a thinner head gasket in (clicky), but as soon as you look at high comp pistons and cams, you'll be up for a decent amount of coin just for the tuning side of things.

                A rebuild (may only even need the top end done) and a dyno tune would be the best plan, IMO.

                      mate I'd sell it, buy a new bike - rather than spending money on an ever depreciating, ever aging bike (that is, unless you really really love it)..

                      Let it come somebody elses problem, otherwise it'll just end up costing ya bigtime and you'll never see that money again.

                        Everyone hates on the realist :mellow:
                        I'm sure I could come up with a pretty sweet list of shit for Mirkz to buy, and attempt to fit himself, and then swoop in when he's sick of it in 6 months and pick myself up a nice basket-case motor for a buggy, but he's too pretty to steer wrong like that

                          Cheers, I'm aware its a money pit and I'll never get the money back, however I don't see the point in selling a bike that I still thoroughly enjoy, when nothing else out there at the moment really jumps out and grabs my attention.
                          I'm just weighing up my options here at the moment.
                          I'd rather spend an extra few grand, keep the bike I got and that I'm happy with, than sell and pay another 5-15k ontop of selling price

                            It's true. I've seen him whispering sweet nothings into the exhaust at lunchtimes.
