buying 2012 zx14r

Hello,

I am thinking of buying 2012 zx14r, however i have few question for members before i make the purchase.

1) hows the reliability, any known issues. (I had 07 zx14 and its plastic casing around air filter would wrap and allow dust. )
2) how does it feel to ride at low rpm compare to previous gen. my 07 felt slower than my current 08z1000 below 6k rpm
3) is abs and traction control standard. can you powerwheelie ?
4) $10k for bike with 5k miles is it good price
5) changing exhaust pipes to slip ons do i need power commander and dyno ? - i personally never modify stock bike however 2012 has the ugliest pipes i have ever seen.
6) how difficult is it to work on the bike. ex changing spark plugs.


Thank you for input.

No ABS for 2012
I can't believe you didn't mod the 07 remove secondaries and full system and it's a different bike and no z1000 will come close at all.
I would offer no more than 8500 or so for a 4 year old bike stock.
I have an 06 so that's all I know except spark plugs should be the same pain.
