Heres asn idea...Why don't you do a how-to on the MP ? I'm going to install mine and could use a how to
Oh I see. I really don't think there's anything special about doing it on the zx10 over any other relatively recent bike. I'll definitely keep an eye out for any gotchas and make a mention about it and provide pictures.I think he means you do a How-to post here in your thread or a video on the YouTube to demonstrate how to install the Motion Pro kit. It's rather straightforward but replacing the actual throttle cables I imagine will be the most arduous task.
You can get them here:Where do you get those clips for safety wire? Any other pictures of your safety wire job?
I watched a DYI video by Motion Pro and they said cables weren't lubed and to lube them so that was my guide. Speaking with an AMA mechanic, he said that he doesn't lube cables at all but those bikes don't have a long lifespan so go figure.Thta's odd, I thought the new kit came with PTFE lubed cables, are you sure that's how they were supposed to be?
The orange cam is the second most aggressive one right?
As I said, the only PITA with replacing throttle cables is attaching them to the throttle bodies but other than that it's straight-forward. That clipon looks like it's well organized and ready to go, looking forward to your feedback.
Likewise brother. It w a good to meet you too. I looked for you in the pits a couple of times but couldn't find you. Must've been out riding.Lanister said:Got to meet Abo7maid in person (very cool dude!)
Is your bike's ECU flashed? Flashing my ecu helped tremendously with engine Braking.Lanister said:Another thing that I've noticed is that the bike naturally has quite a bit of engine braking, so much so that it caused a few rear end slides going into T14 and T3 when my rear tire was not up to full temp (way after downshifts were done). Once it was hot, no problems. Apparently that's a known characteristic of Gen4 clutch and I'm sure my 16/45 gearing didn't help that. There are a couple of mechanical hacks that you can do to improve things but I need to do more research on that.
Speaking of gearing, as my pace improved throughout the day, the gearing was asking to be taller. So next time I'll try to run 44 on the back and see how that goes.
I was pitted at the back of the second bay of the second canopy. We were in different groups so you probably missed me because I was out, so you're right.Likewise brother. It w a good to meet you too. I looked for you in the pits a couple of times but couldn't find you. Must've been out riding.
Yes, my ECU is flashed by Archer and no complaints for the most part.Is your bike's ECU flashed? Flashing my ecu helped tremendously with engine Braking.
-2+3 is more or less what I have going on and it's very nice to get to the top of 5th gear by the finish line. By the end of the day I was going into 6th for a short squirt, which I wasn't too keen on since it was a lot of work for not much gain. I'd rather have a taller 5th gear next time and it would probably help to keep the wheel down through 3rd-4th gears. That's where 44 or maybe even 43 rear would come in handy. I bought an extra rear wheel with a sprocket hub so I have it ready for a quick swap next time. For Laguna, I'm sure it will be 16/45 again.I am using -2/+3 and I think I am in absolute love with this gearing on Thunderhill. Finally I am up in 5th gear in the front straigh. What tires were you running? What pressures? I had no issues at all on the pirelli slicks.
I prefer Dunlops and last weekend I was running GP-A Pros. Medium front and Medium+ rear. 33 psi front and 23-24 psi rear (both hot). No complaints there. I have a few rear medium compound take-offs that I have amassed that I'll be chewing through this season but ultimately the KR451 dual compound rear slick is what I'll be running going forward.What tires were you running?
