Smoother Power on gixxer1000?

I'm looking to get a smoother power delivery out of my 01 gixxer 1000. Right now it's pretty abrupt. I'm sure a few people on here have made some mods to theirs. Suggestions?

A power commander, a pipe and a BMC filter will smooth out the power.

You can also try a TRE

TRE is a cheap investment and worth it.

I did the TRE on my 750 myself and it didn't make a noticable difference in power but it made it much smoother running and maybe its just me but it seamed to be not as buzzy if that makes any sence.

It wasn't hard to do if you can solder. http://www.81x.com/bugman/gixxermods/

I didn't see a LOT of difference with the TRE, but it came with a gear indicator that was worth every penny

The throttle bodies must be synced just like carbs. I've done my carbs dozens of times, but I've read that you can't use the same type of mercury tubes on FI bikes. Anybody with FI ever synced their throttle bodies?

I've had the tb synched but I've never done it myself. I owned an '01 GSXR1000 and had a Yosh pipe,bmc filter,Yosh power commander(can't remember the name of it), and a T.R.E.. The pipe eliminated the exhaust valve and I think that lowered the hp/torque numbers (in the mid range)which resulted in a lessening of the mid range "hit" making the bike easier to ride. It's the same thing I did to my '06. My '03 on the other hand was smooth to begin with,so I just got a slip=on for noise and let it alone otherwise. It was cool that the bike would wheelie at 100 in third gear but it got alittle scary when it wasn't by design!!!

I thought a power commander might help. Why a BMC filter? Next question is do I bother putting $$ into this one. I saw the pics of the 08 1000's. There's my next bike.

thanks for the info.

I'm not sure about that,the last time I bought a K&N it let dirt into my engine and caused probs Also,if you get a BMC,I reccomend the street model and not the race for the same reason. Good luck!
