Jet kits

Ok for my 02 ZX6R, and its a toss up between Factory Pro and Ivans, now Factory claims 98hp but I think its without exhaust and Ivans is claiming like 105hp but with Ack. exhaust. I dunno the price is 120 for ivans vs 180 for factoy and if its better then I really dont mind droping an extra 40. Thoughts, ideas, comments, concers? After this im getting is Dyno tuned in and im not putting the kit in myself so there should be no worries.

The question is, Is it a full exhaust or just a slip on?

I cant help on which is best other than posted numbers. I would check with your dyno guy before ordering. He should be able to jet accordingly and probably has what you need in stock.

The Ivans is the full Ack. and I dont even know if the Factory has any. My shop does all bikes and they told me to order a dyno jet kit, with alot of different jets and they would just put them all in an see which one was the best. But why do that when these manufactures have already done that. So I dunno I have have basicly all bolt on mods you can get for my bike. I just wanted to know if someone has run both or one and could tell me what you thought of them.

I can say that not all bikes run the same. Having an array of jets to chose from in tuning is great. It allows YOUR bike to be tuned right for the area you ride the most in and for the parts installed on YOUR bike.

FWIW, I prefer Factory Tuning jet kits...they are usually very easy to dial in. Don't get caught up in the marketing BS of HP claims.

Rarely is the question stupid, but sometimes the answer is you need to run everything you read online through your own personal BS meter to determine if it makes sense to you.

Well I ordered the Ivans. I called both and asked them both why I should buy their product over theres. And Ivan was ALOT more informative. True it was talking to a sales rep vs the guy who actualy makes them. but Ivan seemed very good he said he spent about 4 months the kit for my bike and it ended up with 4 angles per needle and mostly eliminates all flat spots (because some bikes differ). But the mods I have on my bike is what he used on this test bike. Seemed like he really knew what he was doing. SO Ill get this in and dynoed and ill let you all know how it works out.

OK OK im sorry I took so long getting back on here Iv been busy. The final results were when I took it in it came in at 96hp to the wheel, after It left it now has 103whp. And let my just say that 7hp is a kick in the pants, ALOT smoother powerband and no more flat spots!! So the Ivans kit rocked as he promised. And all is well!
