Nice 10 man!!......super clean!!.....
don't bother with the ex race cam....you'll lose hp!!
but you should see signifigant gains with the race intake cam and a thin HG...
20.....?........probably more like 12-15.......but hey ya never know..?..........its all in the tune, ya know.?

:+1: on the good looking bike. 20hp is going to take more than a cam and head gasket. Full out head work with full on cams and a 3mill bore will get you closer. As far as compression goes, the thin head gasket will raise it a little bit but for those kinds of gains, you will need a decked head but you may be running a volatile compression by then. I wouldn't suggest decking the head because you are going to end up rebuilding the engine before you know it. However you will get a decent gain with cams and head gasket (~10hp on a good day).

Not to many choices on cams... orientexpress does sell the regrind web cams... not much gain there... just a little more duration... http://www.orientexpress.com/Kawasaki/Sport/ZX+10R+Ninja/Camshafts/ look at webs site... http://www.webcamshafts.com/ they make a much more radical cam... the 04 05 cam looks like a some what similar profile to the kaw intake race cam with a much better exhaust cam... the factory kaw race cam you can't get at the moment... it's about a two week turn around for web using yours as a cores... the other choice is megacycle cams through carpenter racing... but they couldn't give me a date... maybe a month maybe two so I went with web on my 07... hope to have it running in a few more weeks...

Carpenter's cams are megacycle... Cycle concepts uses web cams...

Remember you are on a 10 and not a gixxer. They generally get more power than the 10s. So don't expect to be hp for hp when it comes to modding the two. There is a lot of R and D that gets done on the Zuks. And somehow they get more power out of them.
