To mod or not to mod? 03 ZX9R
So ive gotten a little bit of seat time on my bike finally , tho im still rocking the wrong tail lol. Ive desided I like it and am going to keep it for a bit , I had ornigally picked it up off a friend I. Need and just planed to fix it and sell it. Now its time to make it my own , but what to do to it?... Every one keeps telling me the factroy header is pretty good, but the exhaust looks like a damn torpedo so thats first to go. Would a full system make that much of a diffrence if the header is as good as every one says it is? Would money be better spent just doing a mid pipe and can?
Following exhaust im looking in to jet kits , had to find anything besides a stage 1 , would I even need a stage 2? I know on efi bikes its all about the dyno tune. Is it worth messing with on a carb bike or would it be just aswell to simply dial in the carbs good with out a dyno?
Im probly going to leave the gears alone , atleast for now. Whats the compression on these bikes? One thing I liked doing on my gsxr's was milling the head slightly to bump up the compression and just run atleast 93 octane , 105 octane when I get the chance to get it.
Id really like to get new rear sets but havent seen any on the market for these bikes. Dose anyone know of a good place to pick up a set? Ive got big feet , factor in a pair of boots and shifting becomes a little difficult. My next plain of attack is suspension. Ive got a good line up on that. Im not building a track bike , just want it to suit me is all. Id like to do this all this summer. Just so no one gets mad , yes I have read the fourms and a ton a info on the net but its all been verry contradicting. So who better to ask than the owners of these bikes.
