More Z900RS stuff, dyno charts on Ivan's site. Possibly relevant to our derivative or possibly not?

WOW!! this looks very interesting.

The Z900rs air box does seem slightly different. The RS gets its air from the bottom as our Z900 gets it air from the top 2 holes. I was looking at Brocks Racing and he is showing just to change the 2 center velocity stacks. Keep us posted on your results.

Finally the high seat won the battle.

Also some grip puppies.



First seat impressions:
- As soon as you sit on the bike you immediately feel you are in a higher position.
- High seat is no softer than stock seat.
- I felt that we have less tendency to slip forward.
- Definitely less bented legs (that's what I was looking for).
- A Little more afected by wind  at high speed, due to higher postion.
- Good handlebar control.
- Maybe more pressure on your wrists (very litlle, That's why i got the grip puppies).
- Should be the stock seat.
- Much better looking on the bike than stock seat
- Very expensive (here was 180 Euros).
- In the end I think it was worth it (to me).

Nothing fancy...$50 radiator guard through Amazon. Tomorrow well see how much rattling it does. It is attached sturdily enough that Im not worried about it flying off, but Im not impressed with the upper mounting points (it hooks over the top).  :084:

Wow, big list!  Would you say the dynojet PC has made a difference? I have  same set up as you minus the PC5. Weight loss and power gain has made a difference but have always wondered if PC and a good map make a notable difference?

You can get a reflash for cheaper than a PC5 and will adjust cooling fan (for better cooling), timing, fuel and few other things a PC5 simply can't do. Not saying one will not notice a difference with a PC5 but there are better options that make an even bigger difference.

A re-flash will also disable O2 and PAIR sensors so you can easily disconnect them without error codes or having to buy bypass plugs (an additional $50).

I still really like the PC5 (all the DynoJet products) but only in VERY specific setups (generally more advanced configs).
