Theres a zx14 on the for sale threads taht is only for 6k i think
There's a like new 2007 ZX14 for sale in my area for $5200. Good condition, never dumped and 11,000 miles. If fast is what you want, you can get it cheap. Good time of the year to buy with impending winter months.

Why would you need a wider rear tire? Do you have traction issues with a 160 on your bike? A wider tire just means a heavier tires and wheel, which means more mass you have to accelerate. Wide tires are for poseur bikes, real race bikes don't run anything wider than they need.

Wow, some jokes just fly right over people's heads. Umm, thanks for explaining all that to me. I suppose there was some danger of the OP actually believing it and doing it, good thing you explained that.

Lol, sorry. Guess I should have known you were joking.

Never underestimate someones ability to follow bad advice.

Theres not much you can do to the bike to make it go faster. You can replace ferrings with carbon fiber to make it lighter, replace the exhaust system, put NOS or super charging it, put a BMC or K&N air filter in it, PC Racing FLO Spin On Stainless Steel Oil Filter (wont increase speed though). But if you were to do all this or even some, its going to cost the amount for a new and faster bike.

don't dump money into a 650, buy a 1000 or 1400 if you like the size of your 650, buy a new or used 636 or 600 and put money into something worth the while.

All this is just ADVICE because at the end of the day, you can do whatever the FUCK you wanna do.

Whore your slut out

There is a lot you CAN do but its going to cost money. A power commander is a few hundred and a dyno tune is also a couple hundred. That will generally give anywhere from 2-10 HP. An aftermarket exhaust will drop a couple pounds but that's also a few hundred.

Really though if your goal is 11s practice will be the best way to get there. Nothing on a bike gives huge gains because they are so optimized to begin with.

'2-10hp' on what bike??
Certainly not the 650.
The best a powercommander and tune-up can achieve on our bikes will be 2-3hp at the top end, the more impressive ability of the PC and a tune is to maximise the delivery of said hp
