2001 Bandit S 600

Hi, I have had a 600cc Bandit for about 6 months and really enjoy the bike. I do however want to pump the output up some. Aside from a jet kit and exhaust, is there anything anyone could recommend for the 600? I'm familiar with Dale Walker and Holeshot Performace but most of his stuff is 1200cc not the 600cc like mine. Thanks for the tips!

If you want faster acceleration, the easiest and most cost effective method is to change the sprockets, -1 tooth in the front or +3 teeth in the back, or some combination in between, or both. Your gas mileage will drop (as it will with jets and a pipe), but the bike will accelerate faster throughout the entire power range without any type of tuning. It's also very easy to undo if it turns out it's not what you're looking for. I'd try that before anything else.
