New to the Form

What’s up everyone? I’m Dan and I ride a 2015 ZX10R. I’m here in Kentucky looking for ideas and tips to help improve HP and custom ideas for the bike. I have added a Austin Racing slip on exhaust with a K&N air filter. I had the ECU flash and Dyo Tuned. I’m at 190hp now. I’m wanting at least 200hp. Anyone with suggestions?

Hello mate welcome to the forum. There's a lot of folks here that can help with that power info. I don't know enough about the G5 yet, but i think without engine work your going to struggle to get 200WHP on the same dyno. But you never know. Maybe the right system and filter cou;d put you in the ball park.

"at least" 200... the gen5's struggle to make that much power. They need to be squeezed like a lemon! A gen4 will not hit 200 (on pump). You're going to need to invest in MR12, a sprint F2 or MWR WSBK filter, and another detailed dyno-tune. That should be good for anywhere between 8-10HP. Mind you, you're never going to be running that tune though on the streets. The fuel maps and timing for MR12 are completely different so you cant mix fuels, you gotta siphon it out each time you switch, there's no MR12 at any pump period, and it's like $25/gal.

When in doubt... send it!

Aside from that, you can port/polish and cam for like $3500-4K, that's good for, idk, about 12-15HP on pump. You can also get ceramic wheel+trans bearings and get (maybe) 1HP on the dyno.

When in doubt... send it!

Yea that last 10hp is really hard to reach. Thinner head gasket and mr12 would probably get you there. Also unless you're a phenomenal tuner and feel like tearing your bike down a bunch of times to re degree the cams then dont even bother with the kit cams because theyre really hard/picky to see gains with. Welcome and have fun.

Question >> confusion <<

Please don't misinterpret my tone here; I'm simply & sincerely confused on this thread.

A good friend of mine has a '12/Gen4 that was thoroughly built, tuned, and flashed @KWS. His bike has:

  • Ported & Polished Head w/High Compression Head Gasket
  • Race Cams
  • Upgraded Timing Chain Tensioners
  • K&N
  • Competition Werks Full Exhaust

And with all that, I've seen his 191hp dyno-sheet on pump gas. How is a '15/Gen4 making 190hp on a dyno with just a slip-on, a K&N, and a flashed ECU.?!

There's not a major difference in MR12 and pump gas maps. You can fill with MR12 and ride til close to empty. Then fill with pump gas, ride on the MR12 map for a few miles then switch back to pump gas map.

I think it's like, what, a +2 difference on top your base fuel map? I forgot what my map looks like off the top of my head but I remember it being like one or two numbers across the board. So you'll be running a little lean on MR12 with a base map. Not gonna damage your engine like an E85 map on pump would, but you'll be wasting all that money on little to no perf gains. MR12 likes to gum up too, so probably not a safe fuel to run if your bike is sitting for long periods of time.

Did some research after posting that and you're right, no ill effect from mixing :p

When in doubt... send it!
