Performance Suggestions - 05 R6 - February 21, 2009, 06:47 PM

Hey everyone..

Not really interested in anything but HP for now..

So far I have:
Exhaust
PC3
AF
Smog Block offs
Velocity Stacks
New spark (NGK Standard.. can't find an Iridium on their site/cycle sport didn't have any in their catalog.. do they make them for my yr/model??)
Oil/Coolant is new

Running out of ideas so any and all suggestions welcome.. someone suggested "port and polish" but I've never done it myself.. how hard could it be???

I'll work on the suspension once I can get it on the track this season.

Oh, and the obligatory "thanks in advance!!!"

Do not port and polish your head yourself unless you have a flow bench and alot of experience.

Do you have a custom tune on the PC? If so I would say you are done with HP on that bike. Sure you could start fooling with the engine but the bang for the buck is going to start going down hill fast. Ride the piss out of it for a few years and then get a 1000cc so you can try and pull your arms out of their sockets.

I second the GSX-R 750 vote.

Or if your set on your 600 change up your sprocket ratio or drop some coin on some lighter wheels.

Prob the best cost effective... mod the nut behind the handlebars.
Track days or riding school and learn to use the HP you have.

A clean properly lubed chain will put more power to the ground vs a dirty gunked up one. Also having the proper slack too. Having a chain too tight is no good.
