want to tune up my 2007 zx6r

i'm trying to get a little more horsepower out of my zx6r what parts should i consider buying other than a PCIII, exhaust, K&N air filter? What are some good ways to modify your motor? Thank you in advance for any help.

Do a sprocket change and you'll feel more of the power you already have.

Welcome to the forum, hope you haven't bailed on us already :lol:

As the others have written, the mods you are already planning to do will give you only minimal power gains, though you will be dropping a lot of money to get them.

If you want to mod the engine, the 2 things I know you can do are 1) lower the cylinder heads to boost compression (easier) and 2) increase the bore of the cylinders (much harder, lots more work and you need to replace the pistons as well).

For both of these mods you will need to have it done by a skilled mechanic and they won't come cheap either - boring the engine in particular (which is what will give you the most gains in hp) will set you back several thousand dollars.

So all in all, I agree with the others... if it's power you're after, sell your 6 and get a 10 - best value for money :smile:

i like the look of the Red stripes better than that of silver ones. Besides, i'm going to be adding a lot more red accents to the bike like ASV levers in anodized red, a yosh pipe in carbon fiber which has the yosh logo in red, among other things. I bet you like that homemade "pit bull" stand holding it up though eh?

i'm going to go with the 2008 ZX-10R... i've talked to the dealership down here and they told me i would be the first to have a black one, considering we buy five bikes a year from them.
