    MODS for a new FZS??

    I have decided to go with the FZS and plan to go make a deal tomorrow on a leftover 10' "BLUE" one.

    I plan to work in some modification install per dealer cost on the deal.

    So from what I've read one this forum over the last week or so the FZ's have a bucking issue.

    I for sure need:
    R&D Intake grate/ride plate FOR SURE...

    I would like to be able to here the SC'r whine is that possible? Also a little exhaust note would be nice. What would be my best options on that? Those few things is all I plan to do until next year. Is there any other simple cheap mods I should do while I'm at it?

    I'm kind of a HP/supercharger junkie.... Here's a picture of my dodge I just sold and my wife's ''V'' we just got.

    This is a post I made on another thread regarding what I'm doing with a buddy's stock FZR:

    A friend of mine has a stock '09 FZR that he rode last summer. He wants to mod it a bit and here is what we are doing:
    1. R&D Intake Grate and PPK (A MUST FIRST MOD IMO)

    2. Air intake (Riva)

    3. FF Exhaust

    4. Intake Sleeve for ribbon removal

    5. R1 Reflash
    Will see what the RPM's are with the stock prop and go from there.
    Next, I'd do an IC then a wheel.

    But...you need to hold off on the ECU reflash if you want to keep your warranty. You can still get away with upgrading your S/C wheel but just stick with the power shot. If it needs to go in for service work, you can always pull the power shot out and chances are they wont know. If warranty isn't an issue, absolutely go with the r1 reflash
    Also consider getting a Blow off valve to help with the life of your S/C clutch.

    What is this?
    4. Intake Sleeve for ribbon removal

    What's the difference in FF exhaust and thru the hull? I would like a nice sound but nothing real LOUD.

    The intake sleeve is a round billet piece that fits in after the throttle body. It replaces a restrictive honeycomb piece to allow for greater airflow. A lot of people complain about doing this mod because it takes a good 3 hours your first time, but the work you need to do (pulling the intake manifold, wiring harness, fuel rail, etc) is all relativity easy to do with some basic knowledge.

    I have the ff exhaust and like it. It's louder than stock but not over powering. It drones from about 3000-5000rpms which is a main complaint of many people. The rear exit exhaust won't drone like the ff.

    Here's what I'm thinking to start with this year.

    R&D intake grate/ride plate
    Riva thru hull exhaust
    R&D intake
    Riva HKS BOV

    Where's the best deal I can get on all this?

    Use the coupon code "greenhulk" for 10% off most Riva and R&D parts.
    I would add the manifold upgrade to this list. It's 40$ and you'll get great gains from it. To get the full potential of this set up, you'll need a new prop or a repitch on the stock prop.

    If you plan on going the route of pulling the intake manifold to drill and tap it for the vacuum line for the BOV, i highly recommend doing the intake manifold upgrade now. You will kill 2 birds with 1 stone. I have no desire to pull the intake twice. i also drilled and tapped both ends of the intake and plugged the hole i am not using for now for future use.

    You can also T the line that goes into the MAP sensor for a BOV to save yourself some work. Or you could go with the R&D pressure port adapter and run a vac line into that for the BOV.
