first "mods" are to check the chain and tires. Also check the brakes.

next bring it to a reputable dyno shop and get a baseline dyno run.

Dont even THINK about any performance mods before you do these initial things.

I bought the bike from a dealer and everything was checked out and everything was 100%. I need to replace the back tire since I burned it up. I am actually getting the bike Dyno'd tomorrow. The bike is in mint condition no scratches oil leaks or anything. Thanks

I bought a 96 Ninja ZX7R with 5000 on it about a 2 months ago. The bike has a complete exhaust system. I am not sure if it has a jet kit on it or not. I want to start modding it but don't know where to start. I have always modded cars but no bikes. Thanks

I dropped my bike off at dealer tonight and they told me that when they serviced the bike that they changed my airfilters so he would assume since it had stock air filters that is wasn't jetted. They said that I need to get 7500 mile service done on it so when they do the valves I will just tell them to do jet kit. I am getting bike dyno'd tomorrow to see what it base lines at before I do anything. Thanks for help

The bike will be fast enough as is. The 7R has always been a very fast machine. First hing I would suggest is work on your skills, with a track day, riding school or even just the MSF Experienced Riders course. That will give you more and better speed increases than all the jet kits out there.

Take care and enjoy your great bike!

i agree about track time and all of that, but a jet kit is wise investment in your motorcycle's overall health. stock jetting is a little lean, a full exhaust'll usually make that worse. jetting is a real good idea.

i'd jet it now and do some track time next summer. check out www.teampromotion.com

I've been riding sport bike for about 4 yrs now and feel real comfortable with my bike. I just can't afford the cost of what they charge for going to track and all the safety gear. I think I will just do the jet kit next month along with my scheduled maint. Thanks again guys
