1Adam12 said:You can get whats called a Stage 1 kit. It is designed to help your engine breathe better with a stock exhaust. Typical cost is 80-90. It may give you 1-2 hp more at best.
The stage1 kit is designed to give you more useable low end to mid range power and a little on top. You are not going to see dramatic speed changes until you go to a Stage 3 kit, but that involves purchasing individual filters. You can retain the stock exhaust on a Stage 3 or maximize the kit by going with an aftermarket exhaust. Again, more money in the range of 300.00
As you can see it can add up quickly.
jet kit 90
I would rather invest in better springs and shocks for the bike.
Fork Springs 85.00
Rear shock varies depending if you do a shock conversion or purchase new. New would be Penske custom, Works Performance and both would off the charts in getting to feel the road and rider better.
Personally me I went with a Ninja 600 shock and progressive springs on the front.
It's a 91 ZX600 shock. I haven't put it together yet, but a for sure deal to fit is the 85-87 rear shock. I may have to modify...but haven't even messed with it yet. I know where a used fox shock is if you want to know. They wanted 225.00 for it.Aikata said:
Sprockets work on ratios. Do you remember your fractions in math class? If you change your 14 tooth front to 13 tooth, then your top speed drops to 13/14ths of what it was. Or another way to look at it is that your highway RPM's increase to 14/13th's of what they were before. So if your top speed was 114MPH, now it's 114*13/14=106MPH. And if your tach said 8,600RPM's at 70MPH, now it is 9,300RPM's.jgriffgsr said:Hey whats up i wanted more speed so i was thinking of getting smaller front sprocket, what type of speed will this give me off the line? alot more power?
