By power, do you mean acceleration? If so, you can change out your sprockets... depending on how you set it up, it'll give you a lot more acceleration, but a lower top end. And you'll go through gears faster.

But that's just gearing, as far as actual power, you can put a bunch of HP boosting stickers on it!

+1 on sprockets. A good tune may help too.

You've done some of the basics now how much $$ are you willing to spend on this extra power?

Traction control would be a good idea after you get some more hp!

After about the first 10hp the price goes way up. HP gets real high real quick.

Get the motor blueprinted..


But actual numbers vary, some bikes can get 25 percent, and others will make 5 percent or so. Years ago it was a big deal, but with todays productionline tolerances, not sure if the money is worth it. Research the bike you have and find riders who have done it to thiers, and see how much power they gained extra from it.)

I know the basics of what it does, but I think you have to buy all new pistons and internals to be proper.I could be wrong. Others know a lot more than I would about it.

by upgrade the rider, we mean take classes and take advantage of track days to improve your skills. advanced riders could kick your up and down the track with a 600. there is more speed in the riders honed abilities vs. the displacement of the machine they ride.

Put the juice on it. If not that than Find a mad scientist and rip apart the block and replace the piston rings you fried..Classic!!!.I would Stretch the swing arm too..



Keeping the front wheel on the ground is the biggest thing..

Love those quotes.

-1+2 gears. +2 on the back is nearly the same as -1 in the front. Do them both for a real difference. The spray is only for a few seconds.

Dith the slip on amd get a full exhaust. Should be good for a few more hp with a good tune. You could do a lil headwork and get cams. Get some higher compression pistons. Or do it the easy way and put some spray on it.
