Everything Canceled

Posted January 14th, 2016 at 06:59 PM by HoneyBadgerRy

On my way home from PT I saw a dodge pulling out of his driveway, I swerved to avoid him, when I tried to bring the carb back it hit a wet ice patch and spill rapidly, I hit a power line pole and totaled my car. This leaves my torn apart Ninja as my most reasonable form of transportation in Northern Indiana. I slapped the motor back together left the fairings off, and all modifications are on hold until I get another beater car. (Might be this summer, might not he till I get back home from boot camp.)

Suspension Upgrades

I cut the fork springs to have the proper strength for my 134lb ass, slid the forks an inch up, and mouned clipons above the trippleclamps. Installed a 2004 Zx6r shock with zero preloaded, made 6.5" dogebones, and installed pirelli mt75s front and back. The bike feels planted. I had to remove the dash and install the trailtech vapor, lighter weight, more accurate, better looking, its a win win. The bike has more stance, I haven't pushed it yet (wet pavement dark, new suspension = no pushing), but it feels a lot better.

Engine Mods

My goal for my engine is most HP between 10,000 and 12,000 rpm and increase throttle responce, drivability, idle, and power below 8k doesn't matter.. I installed the K&N R-0990 and measured to make sure the intake track was the proper length, it was 7.5" perfect, I also removed all casting flaws from the head. I will either install high compression pistons, or deck the cylinder, I will broaden the intake port, polish the combustion chamber and the exhaust. I plan on installing an intake cam in the exhaust and retarding the cam gear a few degrees, but that is uncharted territory, and I won't have any dyno access until the beginning of April, and even then it will be difficult and I won't have many tools, so I don't know if I will be able to adjust cam timing. So far the bike is running a hell of a lot better than stock, pulls very smooth, jetting is perfect. Let's hope the engine build keeps going this smooth.

I'm not sure how far the stock coils will...
