How to make a 650r fast

Just wondering if anyone has modded there 650r to run 11's. If so what mods do you have. Im looking for more power out of mine but dont really wanna upgrade to zx6r. I already have a slip on arrow muffler. Ive heard some people do the power commander but most people say it isnt worth the money. Isnt there anything I can do to make run 11's?

I ran mid sevens in the 1/8th at the drag strip on mine when I took it, which should be good enough for a high 11 in the 1/4.

That said, its a big waste of money to try to get it to go much faster, you would be a lot better off trying to drag race a faster bike.

Sure, you could spend 4K dollars turbocharging it, but it still only be as fast as a stock 600, and still slower than a liter bike.

If you want to race in a straight line, get a more powerful bike.

Lose weight? lol, nah, check out mrturbo.com. They sell the parts for a 'universal' turbo kit, but there'd still be some legwork on your end for fabbing piping, oil lines, etc. I don't recall seeing any 650 over the counter kits like those for gixxers and busas. If you do successfully turbo it, I'd be interested to see the results. I'm sure it would be a worthwhile experiment considering these engines could probably handle a turbo quite well and pump out more ponies. I don't know about the air and fuel delivery system, though.

If you're really that concerned with power, I've seen ZX-14's sitting at the dealer for like a hair under $9,000. You'd be insane to bother modifying a 650.

Good word there.

And if you are bracket racing, like around here,
it dont matter what you are riding.
Just be consistent and don't beat your dial in.

And I'd argue on the PCv AND AutoTune...
but I dont want to wast my breath.

Good luck. Hope you find what you are looking for.

You're beginning to damage my calm.

I'm pretty sure you can do it with an extended swingarm and an extra wide rear tire. Go try this and let us know how it turns out.

Or just realize that what you're suggesting is a waste of time and money. You can get a ZXR6 used from a few years back for cheaper than you can get a new 650R. If you wanted fast, you should have bought fast in the first place.
