Keihin Carbs

I have a 1997 zx11 and getting tired of the CVK carbs. Has anyone tried using
the Keihin 41mm FCR carbs? And if so did you get substantial performance gains? Thanks for anyones help on this. $1300 for carbs is a lot for me but could be well worth it. Iam looking to better my 1/4 mile time. Currently [email protected] It was my first time ever drag racing a bike so Iam on a learning curve

I don't do the drag strip thing, but if that was your best time for your first runs,

I would get some more seat time before even thinking of spending $1300.

Thanks Dave.

The stock carbs as far as I know are fine,(Save your cash for other things)Have you tried rejetting? I have a 1109kit and stage 3jet kit and a Blackwidow pipe and some other small mods and the bike made 155.3 RWHP. How much more do ya want? The ZX-11 goes 10.40's in stock trim! if your bike is in good running order you should have no problem running high 10's. Just get a bit more practise in. When I first bought my ZX14 and went to the track and went 10.80's I thought dam something's wrong with my bike, no way! 60 passes later I ran 10.10 @142, I was happy with that.
