its cool if you cant say yet

thats great news Chip , from all the teams (NON Factory) you guys have an Amazing program ! (also have lots of respect for the Pegram family)

i would say IMO 2008 was the best season you guys had in years

still dissapointed that Suzuki, Kawasaki and now (as todays press) Honda teams are out .... anything can happen ...

Thank you very much. You have no idea how much it means to us when people notice.

Unfortunately, I can't say anything at this point, but stay tuned.

Re: GSX-R1000 Performance Questions Here!

I know you are a big fan of ceramic bearings, how about the reliability of them for main and rods. I have always used stock bearings, never used ceramic. In a motor going for good power but also reliability would you suggest ceramic. Not wanting to gain a few more horse at the cost of reliability.

Hi Chuck!

Get the motor in yet?

They make ceramic transmission bearings...but not ceramic main and rod bearings.

The ceramic trans bearings are really nice. Less friction and they last forever.

Oh ok got yea, never have looked much into the ceramic bearings so don't know anything about them, I'll probably try them in the tranny though.

No not yet, I have all of the parts except for the case back from millenium, I sent both my case and the 14 at the same time so I'm sure it will take a little while untill I get them back, but will deffinatly be wrapping it up asap once I do get it.

[[email protected];3368640]I really like the LeoVince stuff. The single sided factory system has produced the most gains on our dyno.

Chip,

Just wondering if you are talking about the Factory Corsa racing Ti system or just the normal Factory Full Ti system. Any thought about the difference (what would I need to have installed on the bike to maximize the Corsa system) between the two. Is the Yoshimura full Ti system far behind?

Thanks

The Factory system. It is a stainless single sided system that retails for a little over a grand.

The Corsa system is a dual Ti system that retails for over $2K! Not worth the price unless you are racing.

Re: GSX-R1000 Performance Questions Here!

Hello, Chip I hope that you can answer this question for me because its not one that I've seen here as of yet. One of my bikes is a k7 and it has that electronic steering damper and whenever I'm out on my bike it just feel really crappy in the front end and my other two k5's I have hyper pro's and they feel way more stable than the k7. My thoughts were to replace the stock one with one of the hyper pro units but is that going to give me an error code of some kind if I disconnect the stock one? thanks for your help

Re: GSX-R1000 Performance Questions Here!

Hey chip i have a weird question for you.

Tranny shafts have circlips to limit the gears side to side movement.

I have heard, but never seen, of people shimming the gears to limit their movement for better operation. Have you ever heard of or done this?

Where do you get valve spring shims from?

It really suprised me when you said valves do not bounce when closing. I had always thought differently. hard to imagine them stopping so fast at such high rpms.

Again, thanks for this thread, and for the time you have spent answering our amature questions.

Re: GSX-R1000 Performance Questions Here!

I am club racing a K7 1000 this year. The bike has been raced in superstock. I am looking for the performace mods that are easy and safe and wouldn't have been allowed in superstock trim.

Should I remove the secondary butterflies? Can the complete motor, sensor & shaft be removed (plugging the holes obviously)?

Any others?
Thanks.

Re: GSX-R1000 Performance Questions Here!

Hi Chip, I am moving up to a 08 Gixxer thou this year for racing. I am wondering what my options are for traction control on the new bike. As far as I can tell the Yosh EMU does not offer any form of traction control so that leaves me the Bazzaz system and what others if any?

Secondly can a privateer club racer realistically program and effectively use a Bazzaz TC system or do I need an in-house nerd herd to write algorithms to keep me off my head? I am way too old to Jorge Lorenzo myself to the moon each weekend dialing the thing in.

Last season when I was racing my 750 in the open class races I noticed that most or the 1000cc Bazzaz TC equiped bikes were still cutting the igntion long after the bike was fully upright which leads me to conclude the system was either not set up properly or the system is not complex enough to to be effective on corner exits and in WFO stituations where some spin is ok. Your thoughts?

Toss the damper, and leave the soilinoid connected to the harness and then zip tie it to the upper brace. Thats the easy way.

The expensive way is to buy an EM Pro and then turn the damper off.

Transmissions. Yes. We have shimed transmissions to promote better wear.

Valve Spring shims are available from a ton of different places. Valve spring maufactures are typicaly a good source.

Yep. Check Roadracing World, Superbikeplanet, or cyclenews.

Nope. Leave the secondary butterflies in place. There is very little hp gain and it makes the bike worse in part throttle applications.

The Bazzaz system is the cheapest, most effective, and user freindly system out.

IT IS NOT A SAFETY DEVICE! You can still highside yourself to the moon.

TC is like suspension. You tune it constantly and there is no absolute right answer. It is what ever works best for you.
