New stuff from R&D
There are a lot of new parts on R&D's website. (maybe not new to us but they finally put it on their site)
Who's gonna step up and spend the bucks?

there goes my tax return......

already spent the bucks before i even filed the damn return. unless they come up with something that adds to the pulley kit, plate, and intake mods this year, i'm done spending.

Looks like they added a couple new items as well.
B-Man, If I didnt have to buy the Oil-Sep kit, hell yeah I'd be getting some new perf. Mods....But gonna blow a load on this kit, and glove box filter.
I need to get a aftermarket bilge pump put in as well, I dont want to sink in the pacific when/if something goes wrong! Sorry man, wish I could do more! I could always save my money, and just do oil changes after EVERY ride I guess, but nah, dont want to risk the engine.

Ultra 250 Temp Sensor Interfacer - Now Available
R&D Performance offers a unique supercharger air temp sensor interfacer which will be necessary on Ultra 250X units with the Stage 3 Engine Kit. The added boost pressure of the R&D 1.05 to 1 and 1.1 to 1 pulley will bring along elevated intake temperatures which can be defused or lowered back down to safe temperatures with the R&D Intercooler Upgrade Kit. However, the air temp sensor is located between the supercharger and the intercooler therefore transmitting a temperature rating that is higher than what is actually entering the engine. The R&D sensor interfacer will keep the engine out of "limp home mode" during a race moto. There have been some Ultra 250X models that will default into "limp home mode" if the charger temperature sensor is peaked prematurely. Any Ultra 250 which has this default occur on long rides on hot (115 degree) days should install the R&D Supercharger Temp Interfacer Kit. The Interfacer is an inexpensive fix for this randomly occurring problem.

Ultra 250 Cylinder Leakdown Test Kit - Now Available
The R&D Cylinder Leakdown Test Kit for four stroke engines is the fastest and most accurate method to test and verify the condition and performance values of a four stroke engines cylinder, pistons, intake, and exhaust valves. Simply find top dead center on the compression stroke of the cylinder and insert the cylinder test kit and inject air into the cylinder. The percentage of leakdown will instantly be displayed on the gauges. Accurately test for cracked or detonated pistons, leaking ring sets, and leaking intake or exhaust valves. The R&D Leakdown Kit is more accurate than Snap-On, Matco, or Mac Test Kits as the R&D second gauge reads in P.S.I. and not a large window range displaying only good, fair, or poor rating. The R&D Kit comes with comprehensive directions that has a calibration chart enclosed that will display leakdown percentage at 100, 90, and 75 P.S.I. ratings. The R&D Leakdown Test Kit is accurate, fast, and efficient. Kits are available in 10 mm and 14 mm threads, and optional adaptors are available.

Ultra 250 Anti-Cavitation Cone - Now Available
The R&D Kawasaki Ultra 250X/LX Anti-Cavitation Pump Cone Kit will reduce overall internal pump cavitation within the Kawasaki Ultra 250ís offset reduction/compression nozzle design. The O.E.M. Ultra 250 reduction/compression nozzle is offset 5 degrees, while the O.E.M. pump cone/bearing cap remains straight which causes uneven pressures within the pump and reduction nozzle. The R&D Anti-Cavitation Pump Cone is offset 5 degrees and reshaped to match the O.E.M. reduction nozzle offset promoting even pressures, which will substantially reduce cavitation, increase pump hook up, boost acceleration, and increase top speed performance.

just ordered the r&d plate and shoe pump seal kit. Been waiting for this. Guess I will be testing as soon as it comes in.
My ski runs 66.7 bone stock (low fuel, 225 lb rider). I will test with added rd cool air kit and 1 degree wedge. Then I will test with the rideplate and seal kit.
Then I will test when i lose 50 lbs.
