decking the head
i have a 2005 zx 10r full system, bmc, power commander and custom dyno tune. pulled 169.7 at wheel. my friend crashed his 04 ten but had not put in his 13:5 weisco pistons, sold them to me for 250.00 in box. i have 18000 miles still runs great but antz to use pistions, will they cut rilabilty. i go to quicktime motorsports for dyno tuning and the owner said, with those pistons, degreeing cams and porting head i should get 15 to 18 rearwheel wheel gain. said it may run slightly hotter but shouldn't be a reliability problem going from 12:7 to 13:5 pistons. i have had 13 different cycles all companies, the ten has been my favorite and i cant sell this bike as it was my friends who died ( not on bike ) and i cant let her go. i improved my brakes and put in race tech g2 valving with hyperpro springs ( they have a constant velocity spring ) for my weight. feels like i could manage a bit more power with these upgrades. any comments? how bout you garth?
i was going to give the beamer a try but going from 90,000 to 50,000 a year im a bit shy for it, can handle a few grand though. reason is i put 40000 miles on an 04 and 10000 on this one curious to see what happens. plus gives me something to do besides fight with my old lady ovewr winter. thank you paul
