Lightbulb Got any winter mods planned ?

Whatcha got planned for the winter mod season ? Anything special? New exhaust maybe? New tires, jet kit, power commander? the possibilities are endless as we all know...or maybe you're planning on doing some cosmetic stuff instead ?

No, not me! I still have a timing advancer to put on, but can't do that till riding season. Other than that, there isn't any mods to do to the 9R that already haven't been done!

Seriously, the list on the bike is so rediculously long...

The front suspension on my CBR is good, but not great. I'm planning on getting a Race Tech gold valve kit and fork springs. And I'll change the seals, bushings and fork oil. I'm also planning on getting a Factory Pro jet kit. But I wonder if I should do a before and after dyno run before I install it.

If you can do a b/4 and after dyno run, do it. It will nice to see the power difference from what you have now, to when your finished installing the jet ket. Plus its a handy reference tool as well.

I'll probably look at some heated gloves. It does get cold to ride during the winter months.

i was going to do the heated vest gloves and chaps(all underneath riding gear) because itll be 32 degrees or less for then ext 5 monthes, but after i bought my cheap winter gloves.. im happy with them and fleece pants nad sweater under the leather...Tourmaster PolarTex gloves will make your hands sweat at 40 degrees... they really work best for FREEZING weather or less.
Id beout today... it was 30 degrees out at noon except the stupid snow all over makes riding a bit of a dumb idea.... i wonder how studded tires would do...
but as far as mods go.. this year just get rid of that huge undertail the Z has. Next year..... ZX9R race lightened flywheel and stator stuck in their.
Then once the warranty is up and i ride some more miles on it the engine rebuild from muzzys.... extra 42cc's and 1.5 increase in compression and cams... year or two after that.. if im still enjoying the bike.. nitrous, and maybe a lil longer then stock swing arm.

I have tons of mods 1k and Racer. But i cant tell you guys. The Racer is undergoing a huge transformation. The only stock part on it will be the frame. As for the1k it will be getting a color change and a few upgrade from gixxerzone.com

Its kinda hard for me to do the mods from work.....northern BC....not much for roads let alone space to do mods to a bike....and I get home for maybe 1 week every 3 months through the winter.....but nothing getting done is stuff i really need to do anyhow....welder is building the subframe, machinist is building the billet pieces, painter doing the paint, etc....I did what i could before I came back to work, but for what they pay me out here, it doesn't bother me to pay for labor....and then I can ride all summer.

Yeah with all the money he is spending on that "classic" I would hope so. We had a guy ride with WOS a few times that had a tricked out RR and he tried to catch me and super, and wadded it up. I felt bad...he was trying to sell it. He wadded it up on of my fav turns too. He said it had like 140 hp. My thing is tho, Why spend so much dough on an old bike. But to each his own.
