    NY Fzr project. Trying to get as much speed out of fzr without engine mods

    First off, obv im new to the forum, I live in long island NY and the Fzr is the first ski i have as my own and i have been really happy with it so far but feel like its time to make things more interesting. I originally was going to just get some mods to bump up the power and stay within only using $1,200 but i got into what i can do to my ski that i ended up spending more.

    These are the following performance parts i ordered:

    R&D air intake
    Riva ff exhaust
    Riva E1 sc wheel
    Riva ride plate
    Riva intake grate
    R&D reflash
    Rius Racing Intercooler
    Rius Racing 1000cc injectors
    Rius Racing propeller
    Riva manifold upgrade

    These parts should be arriving early next week.. My question is, what can i install myself and what should be more difficult to install or what will i need special tools for. I want to do alot of the stuff myself. would be a nice project but i don't want to take a chance of messing something up. I was thinking of having just the s/c wheel, propeller, intake grate, and ride plate done by mechanic and do the rest. and for those who are from NY where can i find a good mechanic to work on my ski?

    Do the mods yourself. Everything you listed are bolt ons. Super easy to install.

    I heard that taking the pump apart from propeller isn't that simple..and taking the supercharger apart. I'll probably have those two things done by mechanic and do the rest.

    Any craftsman mechanic's set will do. You really only need a 3/8th ratchet and a set of metric sockets. Any then some basic screwdrivers.

    Both are pretty simple. Get your hands on a FZR Service manual and you will see.

    E1 + reflash with a properly set up pump/ prop combo should be low-mid 80s

    Ed, you have done a really good job of choosing your upgrade parts, it shows that you've done your homework.
    If you dont mind me asking, which reflash did you get? R3?
