    Personally I wouldnt go for a "kit". Each company makes good parts but some better than the other. Do your research on here and see what feedback some of the guys have given on the fzr. Buying each part indivdually and testing it to measure gains each time you do a mod seems to be the best way. that way you know what you have gained with everything you purchase. Try to get the best possible combination of parts. I pretty much have a mix of the two companies and it seems to be working very well.

    Matt they don't need much work there a great stock ski. I would only start modding your ski when you see tony go past you 80mph and then if you catch him mike on bumble bee
    will go past you at 91mph.

    AWSOME SPEED GUYS
    don't think i have the balls to hold on to one of them machines. 80mph is plenty fast for me as long as cavitaion goes and it accelerates hard thats all i want for now
    looks like seperate items instead of a complete package is the the way to go. think i'll just copy wot tony(FZR N) has listed
    makin a list, checking it twice....ho ho ho
