    Riva stage II FZR tested today

    I just finished testing my 2010 FZR after installing Riva Stage II+ kit.
    The + is because I skipped the IC upgrade and went for the Riva Power Cooler in addition to R&D Engine/IC Cooling kit.

    Of course Riva Stage I is already installed with R&D ride plate and intake grate, and I kept the 13/22R.

    Last week, the top speed I achieved with Stage I was 68.9mph, I ride in gulf water where the water is little bit wavy and the climate temp was around 42c.

    Today's top speed achieved was 73mph. Acceleration improved big time.

    The only obstacle was when I go full throtle from 0, there is a delay in the reponse, the technician said that I should play with the FPR. It was 60 when I tested the ski today. Tomorrow I will try 50 - 55 and will post the results.

    And then will see next weekend if the boost clamp worth $200 and the $112 shipping cost.

    The boost clamp is shipped from green hulk store and will be installed on Friday.

    The boost clamp should make a BIG difference.

    My guess is once you'll add the boost clamp, you'll be producing lots of power and you'll be on the rev limiter.
    So you'll have to repitch your impeller to bring you're rpm down....or....just do the reflash (to unleash the tiger!!!). It is WELL worth it.
    You'll have to be patient though. I waited 3 weeks to have mine back (4-5 days from Angola to the US, a few days for the ECU reflash, then another 5/7 days to received the ECU back from the US). I guess that it takes +/- the same amount of time for your to receive your parts from the US to Abu Dhabi. But if you can afford it (I know Fedex & UPS shipping cost to our countries are expensive), do it!!

    Hitman, will post the results after this weekend.

    Lucky, I paid $112 to ship the post clamp from US to here in 3 days to have I. Installed before the weekend, will tune the FPR tomorrow and see what can I get without the Boos Clamp. And yes I will reflash my ECU in winter. Do I need a powershot too? Or the FPR is enough? And what prob shall I go for with that?

    Do you have a an LC-1 to read A/F ratios? If not you don't have a way to dial in the fuel pressure and you will need to call Riva and ask them what to set it at.

    On their site they said to set it at 55 psi.

    You should repitch to about 14/25 and get the riva reduction nozzle. That's what they're reccomending for their stage 2 kit to keep it off the limiter, but I still don't think that is enough though. If you could have gotten your 0-30 time that would have been awesome as well.

    That will definitely help without an LC-1. I would follow Riva's recommendations explicitly without one.
