Best Mods for ZX6R

Hey guys, just wondering what you guys think are the best mods to do to your bikes! i'm looking to do a few simple and cheap mods to enhance riding and performance. I'd love to get a two brothers slip on as well so if anyone has a review on that it would be cool. thanks for anyone who helps

Sprockets and jumper mod. Best performance mod for your buck, hands down. ( one is free !)

i agree with all of the above and i also have a 2 bros slip on. i have the silencer tip in it as well. i didn't think it was extremely loud but it was a nuisance in my old hjc. overall i like the exhaust but hated the undertail/lights that came with it and i rigged up the stock lights up underneath using part of the 2bros kit. it looks ok but if i compress the rear too much i tag the license plate. i'm all of 220 and this doesn't happen often. i also run a lot of preload but i like to make it around a corner. i also recommend a servo eliminator and ditch the servo. i love my stainless lines btw.. the stock hoses by now on your 07 are toast. the difference between the two is amazing. i'd change the oil in the forks too.

Make sure you're valve cover recall work has been done too.

Stompgrips. They really help with body position, and keep you from slamming the boys under harder braking.

if you go down one tooth in the front and up 2 in the rear do you need to get a speedohealer?

how much will you be off on your mileage and your speed?

I did -1/+2 on my 07 zx6r and I think I was off 16.7%
Bu you could probly put a speedo healer on a stock bike and make I closer.
I got the DRD speedo healer and I love it.
I did scorpion slip on and gutted my exhaust, cheap and sounds good!

Suspension. Get it tuned for your body weight. All the performance mods in the world won't help it handle better. Suspension will.

And like SilverSurfer said... Rider mod.

Spend time perfecting your craft.

Best thing you can do for speed is the sprockets. No question, no BS, hands down.

For handling... Not my area of expertise typically... But even in my field, drag racing, a properly tuned suspension is a playmaker. Get it tuned.... Find the right, QUALIFIED person to do it, and you won't regret it. You WILL turn quicker times.
