exhaust mod

I am new to the motorcycle world. Can someone help me out by telling me what needs to be done when installing a full exhaust(Muzzy) on my Kaw ZX7R? Are the valves supposed to be adjusted?

it's an 02 with carbs. I'm told I also need to buy a jetkit. Does this just consist of needles for the carbs (tring not to sound like an idiot)

All zx7's are carbed!

Yes, you SHOULD buy a jet kit...stage 2 at least. And if you're not ready or knowledgeable about carbs you need to find a shop to install it. The carbs will need to have the jets replaced with the jet kit and adjusted to your bike's needs. It would also be good to sync the carbs while they're being worked on, after the jet kit is installed!

Furthermore, you will love what the full exhaust and jet kit will do to your bike's performence!!!

Yep, that's what WOS just got.

Go Brighton Super Bike!!!!

The owner and main tech has been doing race teams and mods for years. Has owned many race teams/bikes. And been the chief mechanic for many other teams. This guy knows his stuff. Now he's moved into the same place WOS meets for it's meetings. He's the one attempting to make Cale's TLR fast!

I still have to drive 1 1/2 hours for a dyno or, about 45 minutes on the bike.
