By the Way it is for sale if interested, If you are a light guy this thing will put you deep in the 9's, My weight (240#'s) slows this thing down a ton. E-mail for more info. I'm in San Antonio, TX and can assist with Delivery. D.



P.S. Diggs did those cams help much? Have you done anything else to the head? If not do you think you would get more from the cams after that head work is done? D.

I may look into adding a 998 piston kit or something like that as well as adding stroker to my 01 9r and since you have already done it I had a few questions and would appreciate you input.



How reliable has the motor been since the stroker (ie..overheating, running hot, starting issues etc..)?



What shop did the work?



What effect has the motor done to red line horsepower ie..how far if any has the power moved up at high RPM's?



Are you running pump gas ie..89,93octane?



And how does the bike compare to a gsxr1k since the motor has been done?



And what type of clutch setup are you using?



I ride on the strip and at track so I'm looking for the best of both worlds I'm looking to run low high 8.9's-9.3's on motor. At approx a 60 inch wheel base, lowered, strapped and geared w/an air shifter (I'm 155-160 suited up)



Thanks

Draggit,

I went with the 936 pistons by JE and Stroked crank by Falicon W/ Carillo Knife Rods, basically because I heard the 998 kit by Muzzy leaks and the 998 kit by Superbike Mike Overheats.

Having said that my bike does run hotter and has made me nervous a couple of times by going through all the bars on the heat gauge and flashing red light, but the guys at the shop say that is pretty normal and that as long as the water is not boiling in the overflow tank that it is not "OverHeating".

I had my work done here in San Antonio at Extreme PowerSports on Judson Road, James is very intelligent and seemed to do a real nice job.

As for the PowerBand it starts about the same place 7500 or so and now pulls through 14,000. I shift at about 13,500 and I used to shift at 11,500 due to it stopped pulling, so it made an incredable difference. I got about 4-5 tenths and 3-4 MPH in the quarter with the big bore and Stroked crank, You beeing so light you will get alot more top end probably 7-9 MPH in the 1/4.



My compression ratio is right at 12.6/1 so I run a mix of 93 pump gas and motor sport 103 which is 99 octane, that seems to work best for my combination if you go higher with the compression ratio you will be able to burn a higher octane fuel.



The GSXR1K as much as I hate them is a bad bike, but I tend to leave them at the line and then they are coming after me on the big end, it always depends on rider but if they have a pipe and jet kit I can usually out run them, if they have much more work then that or they are lowered and can launch hard they tend to give me more problems, but if they are at stock height they are easy money.



I'm currently using a stock clutch set up with stock steals and fibers, I tried aftermarket fibers and I ripped the fiber off them after two races. The stock ones last much longer and avoid the barnett clutches all together, the stock ones are more expensive then barnett or I think it is HJC but it is well worth it, got about 200 passes out of my old stock one and about 15 out of the HJC and the Barnetts are not made for Drag Racing.



That sounds like a good goal, I would say low nines is well within reach at your weight, You could probably run that on mine right now foot shifting it with your weight, so your on the right track. I hope some of this helps and hopefully you can learn from a couple of my mistakes. E-mail me if you have more questions, I'm sure there is a little more I could share with you, I tried to stick to your questions Good Luck my brother in putting thos busas and 1K's on the trailer. D.

I appreciate the quick response. I look forward to talking with you to in more detail to see if I can't get this 9r to run like a bat out of hell. I don't have your email but you can email me at [email protected] and I will get back to you.



Thanks again

what gearing are you running on your bike? has the arm helped you out any? I'm running stock wheelbase with on 01' with 15/42 gearing. I'm going to see if I can't get some 9.7's-9.8's out of her at about 140-142mph.



How's the light conversion coming? It should work I've seen it done it just seemed to me as it was a little tight fitting but that was about 2years ago when i saw it done.



And with all the work you have planned you must be going to a track only setup...huh

Arm helped alot, it will take at LEAST a tenth off short times if you know how to use it. i run 1 down in front 2 up in rear



Trying to find a used 00-01 upper is not very easy, but i will not go back to the track again with that ugly single light(yuk)



my motor has got a 9.6x in it i know because the few 9.7's ive ran have been in the texas heat with............PUMP GAS!



when it cools down going to throw some chilled NUTEC in her and look for 9.50-60's @143-145

I may look into the arm, do you know if the arms are interchangable ie..98-99-00-01.



NUTEC should run better in the heat at least from my experience.

The arms arent interchangeable the 98-99, then the 00-01



rickey gadson told me about two years ago that NUTEC that is cold runs better, ive seen camps with the cans sitting in a chest if ice!!



did you get that 142 mph yet??

Muzzy 998cc Kit

Muzzy cam sprocks

Muzzy Full Ti w/Ti can

Factory 1.0 jet kit added #40 slow jet

Fox Twinclicker



The kit has been reliable, I 've put over 3k on the motor since I did it. I don't do strip runs but I might have to try

one just to see what it'll do.

One of my ZX9's is a 1999 model.........



998cc MTC pistons (lighter than the stockers) 13.5-1

Akrapovic pipe

Ivan's Carb kit

4 degree ignition advancer

Ohlins rear shock

OZ wheels.... 6.0 inch rear / 2000 model fork lowers and brakes

16/42 gearing

slotted cam sprockets...... 107 in./104 ex.

160hp 87ft/lb / 93 pump gas



Does not run hot......even in traffic......the kit has over 4000 miles on it and is totally reliable.



Just make sure that when you order ANY piston kit w/cylinder block........that you measure EVERYTHING.......if something is wrong......send it back, or fix it.



First time ever at the strip in my life (believe it or not)

best run of 10.40 @ 144 mph (1.8 sec. 60 ft)

I probably could have improved the 60 ft time if I had dogbones.......but all that I brought was a strap for the front.



I set it up more as a roadracer, so I was just a bit curious as to what it was capable of....



Eats GSXR1000 for lunch !!

Bought it used/crashed. Still looking to see what it has on it. Stock except for a jet kit (see post on trying to figure out which one).

sorry i have not replied to your question sooner. my modem got struck by lightening. i think the cams helped the bike alot, especially in thr 1/4 mile. it made 150.0

without the head being milled and only the intake boots being matched to the intake ports. it has been milled now .010, and i am going to use the .005 copper base gasket also. so when i get it back together i will let you know what kind of gains that i see both on the dyno and the track (the true dyno)

diggsms,

Do you have the specs of the web cams (lift / duration). Did you have any clearance problems after install (I am guessing no, since you are shaving 10 thousandths and going with the thinner base). I have a set of Muzzy cams, haven't put them in yet. They are .338, 244° exhaust, and .413, 253° intake.
