Well - at least it doesn't make my 2013 seem outdated to me

Why on the green Zx10 are the shock reservoirs red and not green? just like on my green 2013 6R the fork caps are red.

To fuck with you. They'll do it down the track...

One thing I'd love to see and it seems rather basic is a fucking fuel gauge. Sure, up/down quick-shifters, increased displacement, rider modes, IMU and all that bullshit would be nice but give me something other than having to open the tank and eye-ball the fucking fuel level at the track would be so awesome...

I reset my tripometer to 0 every time I fill the tank. It is an easy way to know how much further I can go before I need to fill up again. Number 1 trip meter is GAS, number 2 trip meter is for TIRES. It is nice to know how many miles I am getting on a set of tires. Q3 tires in the canyons ripping= very few miles( i.e. 1,000 miles).

I'm not stupid. I also use the trip meter but it's absolutely WORTHLESS on a track because the amount of gas you use is not CONSTANT like say on the road. So yes, I use the trip meter on the street but the track is where I would love a freaking gauge.

My speed is never constant on the road. Nobody said you were stupid. Using the trip meter works. Even at full throttle. If it works for me in the canyons, it will work for you on the track. Southern California Canyon rides are as close to track riding as it gets.

I agree. It was definitely nicer on the CBR500, and will also be on the R3 now, having a fuel gage, rather than eyeballing the fuel level. Seems like a pretty simple thing to add that wouldn't raise the cost by much. I would gladly sacrifice a gear indicator for a fuel gage.

Yeah, I'm in that habit now however I've been to a day where I went through three FULL tanks of gas. THREE!

Sorry bud, it doesn't (and just goes to show how different canyon riding is). See comment above. Here our track establishments can ban you if you run out of gas on the track.
