Cometic gaskets.

There is no such thing as a degreed cam kit. You "degree" cams. Meaning you adjust the point of opening and closing ( which is often described by what is called the lobe center, or midpoint between them) back or forward to attain the desired effect.

APE has adustable sprockets, about $100 each, and you need a good shop to press them on and tack weld them

Cometic will make any gasket for you....if they don't have it on file already. Just send them an old one to scan and tell them how thick and they'll cut one out of copper for you. I wouldn't change base gasket to bump compression...its really thin to begin with. Don't expect a lot of power out of a compression bump...the gains really flatten out where these engines are already.

The ZX6R has bolt on sprockets from the fatory...so the kit is quick to install...as for the degreeing (is that a word?) process, it takes some specialized tools (degree wheel, dial indicator, TDC stop), and patience.
