5th Gen Race Kit

Any information or advise about race kit parts? What would be the best option to start with? Cams? I just ordered my 2018 zx10rr, the bike would be used for racing and i would like to take advantage of the engine ready that the RR has but i just cant find good info about this parts. I have been racing on a small championship on a zx6r but always stock engine, now the 1000cc category is free on this kind of stuff and im new into all this, please, any advise would be nice. Thanks!

For me well i judge others by my low standards lol. Seriously if id been racing stock 600's it would take an entire year for me to be at the point on a 2018 ZX10R where I needed more power to be faster. Forget about engine upgrades for now,l get a full system & race filter get it flashed and tuned in for now. That's me though.

100% this^^^

Just do an ECU unlock/tune on 93 pump gas, slipon and decat. Thatís 190-195hp, then just ride it for a year.

^ Also agree. But if you do end up doing the kit cams, head gaskets etc. get some pre dyno numbers with a flashed ecu so you at least know you didnt make things worse. From what i have read over the years its really difficult to make power with the kit cams unless they are degreed perfect. Make damn sure you have a good tuner.

This is a recent thread on the thinner head gasket. Good read to understand piston to valve clearance if you were to swap it out. https://www.zx-10r.net/forum/f28/thi...as-350943.html

Have not seen a lot of threads on kit cams, most the time its done by a professional shop who keep their secrets.

I was thinking on this not beacuse i think i need more power but just to take advantage of the RR features that i already spent in hahaha and i was thinking to go with the oem kit cam and go to the dealership expecting that everything has been tested and prooved and that they have a manual with the procedure to do it as they should and gains should be there. im i thinking wrong about it? Any way hardly i would spend that money soon.

The race kit cams will likely void your warranty. I seriously doubt the dealership would know how to correctly install them in order to get anything from them.

I hear at best they are worth 10hp at the extreme top end of the rpm limit. The cams are cheap, the springs and labor are the expensive parts. If they aren't degreed correctly they wont give you any gains.

You May want to just enjoy the RR badging and autoblipper.

If you have not done so already, an ECU flash is IMHO mandatory on this bike, as is a gearing change.

I already have the ftecu bike side kit, nice chinese gp shift pattern rearsets, high flow air filter, m4 echaust cat delete, - 1+1 Sprockets, motion pro short throttle, abs dongle, all caps and plugs needed to remove all evap and ais systems. I will break in the engine, try once at the track then install everything and taste the changes, most probably i will shim 5 mm at the rear but track will say that 😄 if anything else is mandatory on this bike please let me know

Steering stop protectors from R&G to protect the frame in a crash. Same with GB case covers. Don't want to mar up that fancy RR case cover.

I found the electronic damper not up to par. Replaced with mechanical Ohlins.

Velcro grips to hang on.

The bike rides like shit without the ECU flash. Gearing helped a lot as well.
