Hi I've just swapped my 748 Ducati for a zx6 & looking for a bit more power from the bike.
I assume everything is standard on the bike apart from a scorpion exhaust.
I was told this had just been serviced but I'm gonna do it again anyway, bike gets to 110 mph fine but struggles after that.
What mods would be a good cheap starting point for me?
Also which pads would be a good upgrade compared to the oem ones fitted?
Looking forward to help & advice

welcome to you!
I mostly read around here, but I can tell you this, I have a 2000 zx6r j1, and if your bike struggles around 110 mph, its' not running real good.
My bike is pretty much stock with a yosh pipe, and although I wouldn't bet much on the accuracy of my speedo, with stock sprokx it reads 130 and still has more....
I do think my TMNT brake fluid container wraps probably add about 10 mph tho...:rolleyes

I dont think its right but dont know where to start I think oil & filter change will be first point of call then plug change might even consider a dynojet kit and see what improvements I get from that

yep, i agree, give her a tune up, clean the carbs, plugs, a.f., see what that does. assume stock sprockets on her?
wish you luck, I just love the j1's my bike is just great with handling and all.
Love the ergos on her as well, 'course i'm not 25 years old either:smile

cheers mate
