First, my name is Chris and I have a '07 ZX4 ST, silver, basic stock but I have added an Axxes XM radio tuner and iPod cable for the stock radio.
I am glad to have found the site, for now I will lurk and learn what I can. I hope to avoid ever posting the obvious questions!
Looking forward to reading all the good tech.

Welcome to the site. So how do you enjoy your ST so far? I have a feeling you are going to catch the mod bug like the rest of us. [wrenchin][headbang]

"Catch the mod bug?" oh yeah, already have it. Just little things like rent, tax day coming due and trying to get out of debt keep it in check.......for now.
Today I hit a rock with my front right tire. Stupid but I couldn't help it, I was watching a four ship of T-38s fly up to the runway and by the time I saw the rock all I could do was swerve but still nicked it and put a nasty dent in the rim. Not sure if it hurt the tire but I am guessing it did, no visible damage to the Pirelli.
So I was going to surf around and see if I can find the weight of the stock rim/tire combo. Then see if there are upgrades (17-18") out there that wont add weight. Then look into lowering (slightly), the stock rim/tire package does not fill the wheel openings to my taste.
It has the 2.3 so maybe down the road I would like to fit a Torsen diff (if available) or look into ways to lowering the cruise rpms at 75-80mph, I feel she is taching way too high, and if I can get it down to around 2k, mileage would improve......
which would allow me to add power without losing too much mpg (its a dream, I know)
Other than that, I am always on the lookout for self cleaning seat covers that allow dog hair to be magically sucked out the window when rolled down!
