Okay, I gotta request that you no longer respond to any thing I'm the original poster on again. I'm not joking. You never really contribute in any meaningful way and all you do is get me irritated. Thanks buddy.

Who did your flash and also, no restrictions isn't the same as flashed with a tune for that 3/4 exhaust. Improper flash can be a lot of it.

Shut up and ride.

I, personally, wouldn't use full synthetic until the 1000 mile mark minimum. I also wouldn't have changed the oil so early. Those metal shavings are needed to help wear everything in for the first 5-600 miles. You can check my post on my ZX-10RR and see the power I am making. I changed the oil at 600 miles and am still on mineral oil at 1200 miles. The engine will make more power as the break in period goes on, but it shouldn't be a drastic change. I got the 10RR after I totaled my gen 5 10r, and the RR makes maybe 6-8 hp more when fully dyno tuned.

Nope, cant do it. I've been here a few years now. Just can't anymore. From telling people that flashing doesn't make any more power to the other nonsense that he posts... I'm done. It's cool that you're backing him up and I know many others do as well, but I just can't. He's flat out given people incorrect info and it could cost someone eventually.

Woolich.. when I get some real dyno time i will be doing the tuning myself. I'm more than capable and tune on the side. This was just a shootout and the first and only time this bike has been on the dyno.

Don't these bikes come with synthetic from the factory?

No sir, they come with MO from the factory. I continued MO after the first oil change, but my next change will be to full synthetic. Unfortunately full synthetic doesn't allow the pistons to wear against the cylinder walls enough for break-in which is why it shouldn't be used until break in is finished.

I've never been one to believe in that stuff.. but screw it. I'll swap in some regular and see what happens.

Ya, it can't hurt anything. Just make sure you ride normally and your ecu is fully derestricted, and you'll see it make a lot of power after you get rid of the cat. Keep us posted on your gains!

Also, have you checked for blow-by? Are you losing any oil between changes?

Cats off.. graves 3/4.. hence why I'm even more concerned about power.

No, haven't checked. Doesn't appear to be an issue based on my levels so far.
