i guess the 07 is meant to be A TRACK BEAST?! so, as for it being ridden on the daily street, it WILL FLAT OUT SUCK..i guess itll be ok, itll just be my weekend canyon toy..thanks guys..IF THERE ARE ANY MORE INPUT ON THIS, please FEEL FREE TO ADD ON..Originally posted by 99gixxer600
For every point of compression it equals 3% increase in power. ( with all things being equal) To run that high of compression, Kawi would have to pull timing out of the motor so it will run on pump gas, this will lose HP ( what ever was gained by running a high compression) The reason they ran a high compression is that in AMA SuperStock you can run race gas there for raising the timing back and increasing power. This is why alot of 6RR's pick up more with a Kit ECU. I think, the new ZX-6R will make great midrang power but taper off in the upper RPM rang do to still runing small 38mm TB why'll the rest of the 600's are running 40mm to 41 mm TB
its not the HP im concerned about, its the response from the motor..not saying i will be gunning the heck out of it..like the new r6, for example. i had to ride that thing 8-10,ooo to get anything out of it...it seemed as only around 8-9 or close to 10k is where the motor started kicking it...i was just curious about the compression ratio on the 07's..didnt mean to get you on the defensive side of this topic..to make you happy "THE 07zx6r WILL BE THE KING OF THE 600's THIS YEAR"..[8D]Originally posted by Rivetgeek
are you guys high?
"it will suck for streets"
Ok the first person to ride anywhere within 50% of this bikes potential on the street, come find me and I'll buy you a case of beer. Flat out, this bike will outride you. The chances of you ever needing any lost HP are zero on the street or canyons.
exactly, we are talking about the difference between a 12 megaton nuclear bomb and a 15 megaton bomb. Either way, shit is gonna blow the fuck up.Originally posted by spitz04
A lot more comes into play with compressision ratios than just that.. Head design is another major role in how everything interacts. Im sure kawi did their homework, and im sure the power will be ample, when is it not on these bikes?
So does this mean it's gonna user higher than 91 octane?Originally posted by keith_phan
with such a high compression, the ignition will be severely retarded with stock ecu, for engine reliability purposes. that means the kit ecu will be a hugh benefit.
