2013 Racing Head Gasket

Does anyone have the Kawasaki part number for the thin racing head gasket for the 2013 ZX6R?

see here:
thin head gasket new 636

and you can download the race manual here:

you will be able to order the gasket(s) through the dealer. you will need a bit of time to "spec" the motor to get the right gasket there are about 6 of them of varying thicknesses. the tighter you go the higher octane fuel you may have to use. the tighter you go, the more possibility you may have the valve strike the piston. there are returns of good power to be made but, you have to be smart so, you don't make it too tight and hurt the motor.

pistons are in the hole .005" to .006 on stock 2013 and up engines. The thinnest gasket part number is 11004-0071 and it measures just over .016" this morning on one we assembled. that got the flats of the piston down to .021" or so, which is plenty safe........ for race gas purposes.

How many hours of labor did it consist of? And what kind of fuel and fuel system would you have to use?

For just a cyl head r/r and time the cams, we charge 5 hours. That is with engine brought to us out of the bike. Also doesn't include milling the cyl head, which we usually take .010" or so from that model. Stock head will be around 4.173" tall from deck to cam cover rail..... That's an average and we've had LOTS of these apart.

We flash our own ecu's to fix the timing problem and run a bazzaz with self mapper on the race bikes. U4.4 fuel.

best bang for the buck on the 2013+ 636. I gained 13 total hp with thin gasket, degreed cams, and VP u4.4 race fuel. with mr 12 or mrx02 (big dollar race fuel) you can gain more.


without the vp fuel, I gained 10 hp at the rear wheel. Ski

so +10 with 93 pump and the thinner head gasket?

the thinner gasket didn't cause detonation with regular pump gas?

I haven't run regular pump gas in the bike. the "pump" map I have is for renegade fuels p95 (95 motor octane). it is a non ethanol, non oxygenated, unleaded fuel. I buy it locally from a distributor. I ran that all last season on my 05 636, and the end of the season in the 13 636. it is a great stable fuel, safe for fuel systems and long term storage.

when we put the .050 mm head gasket from kaw in it (not the thinnest made), it took the compression from 12.35:1 to a solid 14:1.

the mr 12 fuel is only 87 motor octane but, "pump rated" for 93 octane.

my motor and tuner guy was not sold that it would be safe for long term use in my motor and wanted a octane cushion. so, that is why we stayed with the renegade, and then tested the vp u4.4, which has a higher octane rating as well (108 "pump rated, if I remember correctly).

Now that it seems that I will be racing at least the first round of the year, I need to get my ass in gear and put my bike back together. I am doing the exact same thing as Ski although I will be running Sunoco 260GTX (AMA spec fuel) which is 98octane.

Looking forward to seeing what I can get out of that motor with a proper tune and some proper fuel.

I am an old dude

I will race novice classes of senior superbike middleweight, superstock c, and superbike c, in wera north central division. I am also a track coach for STT northern region. busy summers.

with wera I would be up against the 750 cc bikes but, the bike could possibly be competitive in b superstock, and superbike b as well. but, too many races for one day on this old body.

this year will be my first full year of racing sportbikes. it will be the 5th different discipline I have raced on bikes. what I really want is to get my expert license and plates for 2016, set out wera next year, and race pikes peak on a supermoto bike. my wife is gonna kill me. good thing she, rides/races too.

so you guys know, these motors react well, to very little updating to make LOTS of extra power. I have heard rumors Jason Farrell has a super stock legal 636 motor that makes 139 at the rear wheel on VP Mr12. Ski

I am 45 years old, you cant have all that much on me, if anything and I am able to run at the front of the expert brackets...you can too.

I heard the same rumor about Jason Farrells motors but after he popped two at Daytona...I think I will stick with just my slight mods =)
