Getting my bike back today!

I dropped my bike off about a month ago and finally it's ready. I put a new EBC Clutch kit in it, a 520 x ring rk chain with -1 +2 sprockets, a timing advance kit, speedo healer, and carbs cleaned and re synced. Next on my list is a full exhaust and jet kit and a steering damper.

It'll feel like a new bike with those mods.

So you didn't take my advice and decided to let that shop f&*k the chit out of you for all that work?


Congrats on the bike though.

You know... there are some shops that don't f over everybody.
Some guys do really good work for a fair price. And quite frankly, my time is worth money too.

Each to their own.

I agree, but he and I discussed this before. He told me how much he was paying. Pure Rape-age.

Did anyone else miss the part about him dropping it off a month ago? Hell those mods I would do in a normal weekend of wrenching. Where did they order the parts from? the moon? hope you didn't pay too much man!

Glad you like the upgrades though!

Nice choice of upgrades. I dont know bout how much you paid. but I definatly did all that stuff myself on a saturday in my garage. A month is a bit of a strech, but its great you got it back. Alot of that new power is from the gear change and BOY does that liven it up, heck I only have mine dropped one up front. My next kit, will be one down two up. If you get exhaust or any other upgrades try them yourself. And consult us or me if you got any questions.

2002 ZX6R, Shark Skinz, custom paint, Ignition advance plate, Shift kit, Yoshimura TRS Full race with Duplex header, K&N, 14/40 gear and sprocket, Ivans jet kit and Dyno tune for 103hp at the wheel. 110hp with 110 octane!
