Hey folks, I've been building my Gen 4 engine to land speed race in the standing mile and at Bonneville. Production class, so no visible mods other than mirrors, signals, and sprocket.
Exhaust cat box has been modified with straight pipe. It was ready, but I didn't have the right gasket, so these pulls are with a Akrapovic link pipe and muffler. I don't expect much difference.
Initial tuning is complete, Brian Livengood at Livengood Motorsports in Lawrenceville, GA did a great job. He tunes NA, nitrous, turbo bikes, all around careful and knowledgable guy. He also builds engines.
The engine has stock pistons, with CNC ported head by Jim Gilnack at Competition CNC (.com) - He has done heads for Rickey Gadson's Gen 4, and works with a bunch of grudge bike owners. Cecil Towner also if you know him. Very smart and helpful, reasonable cost.
Kawasaki race cams, 112 intake / 110 exhaust.
Dynotronics ECU flash. Joe McClughan.
Worldwide ceramic trans and wheel bearings. Dave Conforti is the man.
PC-V and ignition module (1.6.10 firmware). MR12 fuel. We spent 4 hours dealing with the PC-V, turns out the 1.8.8 firmware DOES NOT work, I was dropping #4 cylinder off and on.
A few other little things to make and preserve power.
For fun I switched to the STD correction factor, and got 201hp, har har. With ramair it will probably make over 200 for real, depending on weather. I have no idea how the aeros will work on this bike, I think it's worse than my old Gen 2, but who knows. If I can get around 195 in the standing mile, I'll be happy. Wish me luck.
