    So i must say in your case being crewed = happy rider face
    All the credit goes to my mechanic and owner at KTL Tecnic, I just bugged the hell out of him and hung around the shop like a bad smell hahaha.
    He did the maths, we did mockups and found problems before they can turn into bigger ones, Come up with solutions to make it work.

    My experience is with forced induction (japanese) car motors (love Toyotas) I just bring what I learnt from that side to bike engines.

    You'll have to wait for a bit though.. i am also in line to acquire more horses for my FZ and will also provide extensive data within my capabilities and unbiased review of the RC Kits. I am currently not in Mumbai so once, i come back will post step by step installation pics as i start my RC build and expert advises on the same which unfortunately N-o-v-i-c-e missed out.

    Good or bad reviews, the whole agenda of keeping this thread Noob friendly is to ensure that 'Haters' don't crop up with new threads and posts... without understanding the basics about tuning, troubleshooting and steps for installation of power up kits, in this case for Yamaha FZ.

    Hope everyone will make this thread lively and healthy.

    Cheers,

    Congrats on your ride NOVICE. Continue to break her in and ride hard. Nothing to worry. Make sure you do the fuelling and swap the jet too. YOu will find a world of a difference with the 29mm carb and the new jets that we send it with. Will improve efficiency and power drastically.
    Ride safe and have fun!

    @Joel: I know you are pressed for time with your developments and racing. Would request you to please do fill in few liners here on this thread whenever possible... we would like to ensure that this threads clears all the air surrounding with RC kits and in general helps others understand and look at hot roding in a new perspective.

    Thanks buddy. I intend to break-in and ride hard come what may. The jet's been swapped. Just the nitty-gritty tuning has been going on.

    I second that...do keep posting here.

    Today, a strange thing happened. The flat spots being observed earlier at 2-3k and then later on at 6-7k rpm had changed.

    Now the bike feels slow at 2-4k rpm. But then onwards there's no time to look at the rpm meter before you crrash into someone.

    More tuning to be done tomorrow..

    cheers...

    Ensure that you are gentle with her for some kms.. unless you intend to use motoman technique.. I am not gung ho for it.. i would say follow the stock run in method..

    Hey NOVICE what's the update. You didn't even tell us the mileage with the stock re-jetting and also what's the ODO now. Can't see three people who have modded the bike, the people are Duoscribe, Sydney C and rylan. With such a heated discussion going on I hope these two guys turn up and share their status about the modded babes

    Cheers,
    Don't be too gentle unless you want to glaze up the bore.
    If you let it warm up, then ride it "normally" as per traffic you should be fine, Don't go ripping it in traffic, time and a place for that.
