What are the stock rods good for as far as HP#'s ? I have a set of JE pistons stock bore but 13.5 to 1, kawaski race cam, full exhaust, pc3 usb and a few other mods. I dont want to spend the money for new rods if im not going to need them. Bike is manly used on the street not much track time but topping the bike out is almost a every week thing.

If there is no plan on using alot of nitrous, the stock rods will work fine.

You can do all those mods plus a 1051 overbore kit, and still use stock rods. The reason Superbike teams use Carrillo, and even more exotic Ti rods is the rev limit. Lighter, and stronger rods are needed when you start reving a 1000cc motor 16,000 to 17,500 rpm for more power.

No forced induction (turbo / supercharger) and no nitrous oxide, and you are observing the stock redline? Should be no problem. Anything below redline is fair game.
