I guess there is nothing that is not possible given enough money. I guess the question is why? You must be a hellava rider to already be using what the ZX-10R has to offer stock. Me, I ain't even close. Please tell me you ain't got 1" chicken stripes.

well, if you have the time and the money. then do it. I just think you will have more of headache. you will need higher oct gas. if you want more hp. the place to look at will be the head. don't know who does head works or how much. with cams. high com pistons and head work. your 10 should put out some killer power. for me. the stock 10 is just fine for me.

I have seen the head, there is not much to do.

A ton (ie buckets full) of money would be spent for marginal gains which would probley make the bike less streetable.

The motor can be bored to 1051cc's and the cylinders plated again. This is a perfect way to gain some torque/hp without loosing reliability....sneaky too.

head work is a waste of money. the intake ports are damn near straight down to begin with. they don't leave a lot of room for improvement in these liter bikes there already most of the way there.

I live my life a quarter-pounder at a time. And for those 500 calories or more, im free. I need FRIESSSS! Two of them. The big ones. Oh, and I need them tonight. You're lucky the double shot of BBQ sauce didnt blow a seam on your nugget box.
