Cutting Edge Just Got Sharper !!
The ZX10R in standard trim was awesome.................added the cans and it got better................. removed the baffles and it got ragged.
1000 Bhp per Tonne!!
This bike is mine and doubles up as the shop demo. Why change the cans? - Well don't tell anyone else but I wasn't that keen on the originals and as Kawasaki market these cans as OE accessories I thought well - why not!.
What did we fit? ....... We fitted a pair of Cans, and a Power Commander.
Akrapovic End Cans: These are bolt-on "race" end cans produced by Akrapovic in full carbon or titanium with carbon end cap finishes. The Akrapovic cans fitted very well indeed and instantly made the back end of the bike look lighter (they weigh substantially less than the standard cans). They sounded good and rode very well with the baffles in. I have to say however that with the baffles removed the bike suddenly felt viscious and ragged and was obviously affected by the big change in airflow.
It needed the fuel mixture setup. - On with the Power Commander and off to Stevo in the Dyno. (I used to do all the fuel work myself until Steve stepped in, took onboard what I knew and improved upon it - The art of leadership - know when your beaten!!).
K&N High flow Air Filter :
Dynojet Power Commander:
Dry weight on this bike is 175 Kg - Therefore power to weight ratio is now in only just shy of 1000 Bhp per Tonne at the rear wheel without RAM AIR being taken itnto account. (Another 10+ Bhp).
Is this still usable power? ........
