    YES!!!

    Finally broke the 70mph barrier. Only rubbing I done to my 14 FZR so far was...
    Cleaning up the stock grate,stuffing the voids, sealing over the bolt heads and leading edge. Ride plate is next.
    Installed a R&D VTS cam and fine tuned the nozzle settings.
    Drilled out the stock water strainer. Could visible see improved water flow.
    Performed a foam delete.
    Done the Tommy Jordan free flow exhaust mod.
    Today the temp was in the lower 90s, fresh water temp low 80s and just passed through a no wake zone with a 1/2 tank. Tuesday my SCOM will be here and until then doing a simple mod that Tommy Jordan suggested to improve IC cooling. Sorry I didn't notice the RPMs, too busy holding on.
    All I can say I'm a happy boy! Happy boy!!

    I don't doubt him. I ran trim up and down. At the current setting it was the fastest. I'll check what it is later and report back. Playing with the IC cooling lines now.

    He suggested running a billet strainer. For now I opened the holes in the stock strainer. Seems to help.

    Yes that was one of the first mods I did. I used the riva pump strainer. It has much larger passages vs the oem
