Well, depending on what way your going with modding your Z... I went the stunt route, and have to say that the pussycat that was below 5k has since become the lion that roars all the way into 4th...lol

My biggest problem has been finding a crash cage for the Z??? No one seems to make them!:(:(:(


-2004 Z1000
Thus far: Yoshi RS-3 slip-ons, pcIII powercommander, K&N filter kit, airbox mod, zero gravity windscreen (with custom paint), z1000 tank pad, red billet bar ends, carbon gel grips, 919 style mirrors, arrow short stalk front signals, LED rear integrated signals, Hyperpro CSC steering damper, billet "Z" engine covers & sliders, 15t fr/50t rr gearing... ***3.33***[:p][B)][xx(]

Have you looked into getting rid of the stock (huge) fender? It's a fairly simple mod - I posted a how-to AGES ago from my work on the 636... same tailsection...

You can cut it how ever you want. There are a few different versions of this mod on riderforums.com. All with the same idea. Get more air into the airbox. A lot of users have dynoed nice gains coupled with other mods and a PCIII.

djkj6: Crash cage is made by 905. Check out their site at 905racing.com. I am pretty sure there is a ZK on there! Please keep us posted with that stunt bike. I was thinking about building one myself

What kind of detail are you looking for? I posted a picture up in the thread on how to cut the airbox lid. What more were you looking for?

O.K. I did the mod on the airbox lid. Is there any mod or ideas on the right side of the airbox where it forms to a cone under the injecters.

The cone shape of the lower airbox is there to increase airbox volume. Airboxes are designed to resonate at certain frequencies to promote cylinder filling. This is used to smooth out the torque curve. If you are interested in this sort of stuff, read Kevin Camerons book, Sportbike performance handbook. Lots of good info there.
