I just got a 03 ZRX1200 and want to do some upgrades and mods, any suggestions? I already have a 8inch arm for it and I'm ordering clipons for a sportier look. But I really need HP. I haven't even riden the bike yet so I might be in for a treat. I thought I would drop a tooth on the front to start with and invest in exhaust but after that I don't know, TALK TO ME! :p

mods for ZRX

The only engine mods you need are a pipe and jet kit (K&N Stage 2) for handling you really need a steering damper, but they are expensive. at this time Muzzy and Hyperpro are the only ones I know that offer them. The Muzzy goes for almost $500.00 and the Hyperpro is only a little cheaper.:D

If you already got the arm and are going to have to put a different chain on it anyway, I would suggest going up 3 or 4 teeth in the back rather than down in the front. It is MUCH stronger and puts a LOT less strain on the chain. I would put a full exhaust on it first and then ride it and figure out any other mods then! Congrats on your new toy!

I have an 01 1200R. I put a Muzzys full system on it, stainless pipes and a titanium end can. Not only did it shave off 20 or so pounds, but gave the bike a "freer" feeling and an aggressive exhaust tone.

I did the same thing but went with the stainless oval and factory pro jets and the difference is night and day!! :grin:

cmikimoto's mount over at zrxoa goes for $150 and mounts a stock GSXR damper.

You could literally go broke on mods and still want more.
