What Mods To Smooth Power Delivery
Posted July 24, 2004 - 04:25 PM
I was having a real problem keeping the front wheel down even while practically sitting on the gas tank. When additional speed/power was needed, it was comming on way too quickly. For this type of hill climbing it would seem like the power needs to come on smoother.
The only mods I have made so far is the throttle stop and air box cover removal.
For this kind of riding I am thinking a larger rear sprocket would be a big help. I am also thinking some of the carb mods may help with the abrupt power delivery while hill climbing.
Thanks for helping,

Tell us about your bike.

i know this is an expensive solution but, the z-start auto clutch made that stuff alot easier for me. i warn the guys i ride with that if the up hill is bad, i may slow down and then take off again. don't follow too close. they may charge up a hill to carry their momentum so they don't have to shut off and get back on it. the auto clutch lets me do what i want.
one way or another, ride the bike a bunch.

Seriously though, like everyone else said, it would be nice to know what bike you ride and what has been done to it. The first thing that I thought was going up some teeth in the rear sprocket.

It was completely stock when I got it a couple of months ago. I cut the stop screw, pulled the air box cover and installed the GTYR silencer. Afer this weekends ride I have 52 miles on it. Did one oil change at 20 miles and thats it. Due for a valve check before the next ride.
The one thing that I figured out very quickly was you have to sit on the tank to get any weight over the front wheel while hill climbing.
I am leaning towards a larger rear sprocket initially but I was wondering if he BK carb mod would make much difference in how the power comes on.
Can I go up to a 52 tooth sprocket without a new chain??

With the GTYR insert it should be pretty smooth. Adding the 450 cam made mine have more power with less hit, but my CRD exhuast is better than the GTYR and only a little louder.
