This winter I am working on adding a lot to my engine and I need help from you guys!! This is what I am adding and I need help of what companys you prefer: Jet Kit, Top of the line Spark Plugs, Ignition Advancer, Ported Heads, and Full pipe. What companies do you prefer? I already have the Renthol Sprokets 14/42 gearing and a D.I.D. triple gold plated chain, and Two Bro Slip on (might change to full system). PLEASE HELP!!!!

I am going with a full Muzzy Polish Stainless Can with Ivans Jet Kit. He has pretty good numbers. www.ivansperformanceproducts.com About 10HP over stock. I am going to have Schintz Racing tune it once I get it in.

However little you can do to make big gains... withought internal work... New cam, changing port sizes. Your better off just setting up NOS or a Turbo if you can find one. Either way its going to cost money. Or just get a bigger bike. ZX9R with Muzzy 1000cc kit. It will eat a stock GSXR 1000, unless they remapped their systems then it will be close.

I just put in a Ivan's jet kit and i LOVE the way the bike is now. It has power all throughout the rev range....no more popping from the pipe when getting off the throttle....and best of all the bike will come up at almost any RPM in 1st gear. Also, you know when you NAIL the gas, and there is almost a tiny bit of lag before the power actually kicks in?? Well, with this kit that I put in, the power kicks in INSTANTLY...no lag what so ever.

If you have the $$$ go for an Akro system, or if not then a Muzzy, and a Factory jet-kit. Most of the big-power ninja's I've heard from swear by the Factory jet kits over the Dynojet's. Ivan's seems to be somewhere in between.

Ok, Im pretty new the whole motorcycle thing,
and since Im a recovering cager, there are
somethings in this thread that brought up
questions for me.

Namely....
turbochargers on motorcycles.
Now I know there have been bikes
that came from the factory with
turbos (I atleast know Kawasaki
made a few way back when) but
I do recall asking a few years
ago all my friends why turbos
were not as popular for bikes
as they are for cars.

Now the most popular reason Ive been
told was something to the effect that
motorcycles are just fast enough as it
is, even with less drastic modifications
than forced induction.

Of course, I didnt buy that. People
always want to go crazy fast.

But the one reason a friend offered
that made the most sense to me was this:

TURBO LAG!

Now Ive never owned a turbocharged
vehicle, but Ive driven a few and know enough
about them to ask that since sudden boost
can sometimes spin out a car in a corner,
the same results on a bike would disastrous.
Thus, making turbos a considerably dangerous
thing for bikes....

is there any truth to this...
any thoughts?
about them to know that turbo lag can be a big
problem on cornering if you are not careful,
i.e. a sudden boost of power to the wheels

"screw you guys, Im buying a motorcycle!" - the last thing I said to my car club
