"go fast" ideas for a 900rr

A friend of mine bought a '97 RR a few months ago and we want to make it go fast(er). That thing is piss slow. I think my old F2 could beat it in a race. It already has a full exhaust,jet kit, and a K&N air filter. Are there any hidden secrets to make that thing go fast? It needs it "bigtime". Thanks.

Oh Yeah, money is very limited!

take it to the dealer or a good mechanic and have them check it out, if you;re saying its slow there could be a big problem. Maybe an engine problem, something warn in there. The carbs could need adjusting. It shouldn't be "slow" as you say it is. maybe it just need a really good beating to show it who's boss, I'm always a fan of that one. Try throwing some fuel system/carb cleaner in with the next tank of gas and beating the hell out of it.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Re: "go fast" ideas for a 900rr

yeah being its a carby model
id suggest getting the carbies cleaned and balanced first and making sure all cylinders are firing (chk to see if any headers are cold 10 seconds after starting up)

Re: "go fast" ideas for a 900rr

what everyone said up above...

I'd also say, chuck away that K&N, put a stock system back on it, and start from stock...the blade in stock form was nothing to write home about but definately wasn't slow either.. maybe it's running on Reserve

Look, Lean, Believe..

Not sure, but maybe the K&N works better on the carb models. But it wouldnt hurt to try the stock filter since they do seem to out perform the k&n on the newer models.

Re: "go fast" ideas for a 900rr

I am sorry to hear that yours is not performing as quick as you think it should. I think its quite likely there is something wrong with it. Mine runs a k&n filter, dynojet kit and a micron can and is plenty quick enough for me, i think it gives 133bhp at the crank........................not bad for something that getting on a bit now.
If you stuck it side by side with one of the new breed of super quick 600's I doubt it would be much quicker(if at all) but it is certainly easier to ride because of the torque.

Re: "go fast" ideas for a 900rr

i hate to say this, but if you still think it isn't quick enough after making sure it's functional...don't dump a lot of money into a bike that is that old. i'm a firm believer in "if you want a faster bike don't dump a lot of money into a slow one, buy a bigger faster bike". any of the new liter bikes should be enough to scare the piss out of you....if they don't you need to seek professional help

Or start racing

On a side note the whole thing sounds screwy to me. A 900rr should not be slow at all. I personally would pick up a good manual and start tearing it down Take off the tank, check all the lines, fuel filter, clean/replace the air filter, plugs/wires and definately look into the carbs

I am starting this on my RC next week, which runs great simply cause a used bike is just that used. Unless you know the maintenance schedule that it was kept on I would go through the bike with a "fine tooth comb" and make sure every thing is performing 100%

Re: "go fast" ideas for a 900rr

if u still find the 900 slow, try changing to a flatslide carb + racing CDI + exhaust. just had a fren who happened to buy a track bike done up this way, n when we take it for a spin on the twisties, even a 929 with PC3 cant overtake it. my bike eats dust compared to his bike...
