09 zx10 performance mods questions

Hey guys! So I just bought an 09 zx10r over a month ago. It was completely stock. So far I installed the full Akrapovic Evo exhaust system with a BMC air filter and the pc5. I downloaded the map for my exhaust system from the power commander website. It back fires sometimes when I'm down shifting. Not sure if this is good or bad. There was one time when I was riding and the motor just lost power and sounded like a v twin motor. I dropped it down a gear and i have it some gas to accelerate and maybe a half a mile down the road i gained my power back and the bike rode normal ever since. I have no idea why that happened. If someone has gone through this or if it's a common issue please let me know. My bike only has 3300 miles on it

I want to add some bolt on performance mods on the bike without having to open up the motor. So far I was looking into velocity stacks and from my understanding is they don't make them for my bike. I'm not sure why... Maybe I'm not looking in the right place? What other bolt ons can I get for my bike?

Power commander issue is what happened when you are saying it lost power and sounded different. It drops a cylinder. Needs a firmware update most likely

"Homewrecker" Gen3 custom build by ZX-SIK-R in progress.... check the build thread: https://www.zx-10r.net/forum/f28/airb...ad-140226.html

Ive actually been dealing with a similar problem on mine for the last week or so. I have not yet gotten to the bottom of it either. I am occasionally getting FI lights as well, but no stored codes and the bike runs fine. I did one time also have a dropped cyl for about 3 minutes. I assumed it has to do with my PCV as well. So far I have pulled all my ecm connections as there was something about the 3rd gens having a coil wire back out. All connections are still good. I loaded a different map into my PCV (i was using the leo vince map and I loaded the akra). That seemed to help for like an hour but then the symptoms slowly started coming back. I will be looking into it more this week. I will post any findings

What mods are you running? I'm trying to see what other mods/tricks I can do for some more performance. And thanks for the help! I really do appreciate it.

I have a full exhaust, BMC filter, PCV, -1 front sprocket, Healtech X-TRE. Thats it for "performance" the rest of my mods are for brakes and suspension.

I just looked at Dynojet's website and I dont see any updates since 1/2013

What's a healtech? And is it a big difference in power?

Not really. Its supposed to allow the bike to have some extra timing in 1st thru 3rd gears. The main reason I got it was it also is supposed to add some off throttle fuel so that when you roll back on the gas its smoother. As a twisty rider I thought that would be helpful, and it did smooth that out some.

It does also disable your KIMS system as well, so thats something you might wanna consider also.

When I was having my issue I called Dyno jet to tell them I updated the firmware and it still was having issues. They said to properly update the firmware you have to do the entire process like 3 times. I tried it and it fixed it.
