    Quick question for FZS mod

    Hi,

    I currently have the following parts (not installed yet on the FZS, ski still waiting for customs clearance, hope to get it next week!):

    Riva air power filter
    Riva manifold upgrade kit
    Riva freeflow
    R&D intake grate with seal kit

    My goal is to be within the 70/71 mph range without reflashing or upgrading the intercooler.
    Are these parts enough? Otherwise I'm thinking about ordering the R&D C1 SC wheel (as it works fine with the stock intercooler) and may be the Solas 13/22R impeller.

    Conditions are choppy water and air temperature is usually 85-90°F.

    Thanks for your advice

    L.

    Get yourself the VX rideplate as that's probably the biggest upgrade for you right now.
    I'm at 72 mph with similar mods + rideplate.

    hi, i have about the same mods that you're going for. was at 70.3 couple of times today, on an almost empty tank. temps over here 33 C air/ 27-28 C water. going to do the RIVA intercooler upgrade soon. then i will need another impeller, then another SC wheel...

    cheers

    Thanks for your input Ato.
    In Luanda, we have the same weather as in Singapore, so I guess I'll achieve the same top speed as yours. No need then to add the impeller.
    May be the C1 sc wheel from R&D will add a bit of a boost.

    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    I'm about to collect my FZS very soon and intend to install my mods parts as soon as I get it.
    As I'm having trouble findind blue loctite or blue permantex here (I've ordered some online, but I will only get it in 2 weeks), I'd like to know what other product I may use on the bolts for the intake grate and intake manifold. I don't think some kind of silicone will be enough. Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    L.
