installing mine as soon as they arrive but quick question. did you need to have a jack under the engine or dude you just pull bolts out one side at a time?
I don't think it's necessary but it couldn't hurt.
What I did was use my tie downs in my shed to strap the bike vertical and I did put a jack under the engine to prevent any movement at all.
Then I did one side at a time.

One side went easier than the other. If I recall, it was the left side that gave me a slight alignment problem. The right side, which I did first, went perfectly. I installed the sliders and torqued them to spec.
When I did the left, even though my bike was upright with the engine supported, the holes moved a fraction of a millimeter. I used the jack under the engine to align the holes do that the bolt would thread in easily.

Make sure you use anti-seize on the bolts. If you don't have any, go get some before the install. You are threading into a boss on the engine block and you don't want to bugger up those threads.
Also, you should be able to thread your new bolts completely in by hand. If you feel you need your ratchet to thread them in, then something is wrong.
To test the alignment you can rethread the factory bolt to make sure the bolt hole is aligned. I say this because I had such a problem. It turned out T Rex shipped me a defective bolt, it wouldn't thread cleanly.  I called them and they overnighted me a new bolt without question. (Good company). If I had a die large enough I would have cleaned up the threads, they are custom made bolts.
Hope this helps.

A lot of that has to do with the fact the Z900 runs rich above 4K. While I can't imagine anyone wasting the time, but you could probably gain 5HP if all you did was custom tune a bone stock engine.

Also important to note, the air temp at time of his tuning is pretty cold....these gains will NOT be the same come summer time. Even with the dyno correction factor..

Fair point. The ignition timing was interesting too. I was a bit confused when he said that there wasn’t much point playing with the timing, but then reading your points above regarding the octane, that makes more sense. Seems that most tuners play with the timing, so I’m guessing that they do so on the assumption of people using better quality fuel.

I was surprised at just how big the gains were for just the full exhaust and air filter.

Hey buddy, you’ve been pretty quiet. Heated grips aside, I see you’ve got a different brake fluid reservoir there, what master cylinder you running now?

The hole covid things got me behind everything.
I have a stock 636 ninja master cylinder and have gone through a couple ebay reservoirs, I will be doing a video some time soon on it.
