Hello from Santa Cruz

Hello new ZX4RR community,
I just picked by 2023 ZX4RR Thursday, May 18th.
I had been researching this bike since it was rumored to come out.
I was most interested in a second smaller trackbike for fun, training for my bigger track bikes.
I had the Ninja 300, set up for track for one season and love it. then replaced it with a KTM RC390 as a more dedicated trackbike. I love that bike for three seasons.
I wanted a bike similar to the RC390 but with next-level quality and more sophisticated multi-cylinder power. The RS660 was in high contention but I wanted something a bit different compared to my current 2022 Aprilia RSV4.

I have an outline of what I plan to do to it in the coming months. I built a spreadsheet (I'll share), which will be updated, as I remove and weigh actual parts.

More to come and looking forward to all the information shared.

Welcome to the forum. Seeing your bike in person at the dealership when it was wheeled out was when I first learned of this model. Hopefully I will get mine soon. Yours does look good without the name on the lower fairing. When are you going to take Ninja off?
That looks good

I might have to remove those stickers too when I get mine.

Did you use a heat gun to remove the stickers?

They're new on the bike so they should just peel right off.
I de-badged my Ninja400 and all the stickers came off with no issues. 😂
Good to know. Thanks.
