Pistons Anyone?

New here. Has anyone seen or heard of someone installing the wiseco overbore pistons in their 636. I want to do it to my 06 zx-636 but I cannot find any legit comments on this upgrade.

Thanks for your hospitality. My intent is to build my bike from the inside out. Exhaust, PCIII, Brake upgrades will all be done after some internals. The piston kit finishes out at 655cc 1mm bore or 674cc 2mm bore. The extra cc's are what i am after, more power without more rev's. I am not looking for a whole bunch but more down low would satisfy me. I am new to the zx-6r just coming off an 06 10r.

By the time you have spent the $$$$$ or ££££££ id stick with the 10r a lot less hassle or just buy a gsxr 750 ?

if your lookin for more power than what the 636 has already i say sell it & get you another zx10, but simple mods you can do to the 636 without draining the wallet is jumper mod, sprockets -1 +2, pc111 dyno tune, k&n or bmc filter, aftermarket full or slipon exhaust

It sounds like quite a promising mod, but I can't say I've ever ridden an overbored ZX6. Also worth exploring would be a mild supercharger (a turbo will have some lag and generally will hinder throttle response and low rpm power) or a stroker kit (stroking a motor will tend to improve lower rpm performance the most).

I know TTS in UK do a kit for the J1 that takes it out to 654, the pistons and bits and pieces come to £400, then you need a rebore and replate, probably come out at about
£1k all in, I've considered it for my J1, I love the bike, don't want to change it but wouldn't mind a bit more grunt. Plus £1k is a lot less than chopping it against a K1 to K4 GSXR.

I haven't seen this kit. But seeing how the cylinders are linerless...How do you go about boring them?? Does this kit come with new cylinders??

the only thing you have to watch out for when boring the cylinders is wall clearance if to thin you will have to resleeve the block and i also no if you go to far out with the cylinders the bike wants to run alittle hotter than normal

Its not a money thing. Its a kawasaki thing. I want 750 cc performance with fuel injection. The 10r was great but hardly managable. 600cc handling with 750cc performance seems to be the best of all worlds. thanks for the input everyone.

These folks may be of some help. I've not dealt with them personally, but have read good things about them (no idea how reliable the source was though).
