Can my 900RR be made to run with 1000's

Hey I was just wondering if only using engine mods, (no nos & no turbo) could my 1998 900RR be made to run with the new 1000 cc bikes, I was thinking big bore 970, head work, cam, and big carbs. I was just wondering what your opinion was. Thanks

maybe in a straight line but the 900 is a tank compared to the 1000, I think...

Re: Can my 900RR be made to run with 1000's

it all comes down to the rider and the situations. When i had my f3 I could out ride many 1000cc bikes through the corners but in the straights they were gone.

Re: Can my 900RR be made to run with 1000's

Yeah I doubt this bike will ever see a track since it's a streetfighter, right now it's a good everyday bike I just want the most power I can out of it without having to brake down and get a new liter bike... So as far as horsepower to the rear wheel can it match the new bikes, and if so what is the best way to accomplish it?

take the money you were going to spend building the motor and combine that with the sale of your 900 and buy a new 1000. The 900 will never handle like the new 1000s do, and once you put all that money into the motor, you will have a much more finicky motor that needs more maintenance.

If you ride the bike I wouldn't do it. You will end up spending a ton of money for a bike that needs more maint. and is much harder (breaks) parts. Adding 30-40 hp to a stock bottom end in an older bike is sure to break stuff. Plus the bike won't be worth any more money when you do go to sell it. Just ride what you got for now, and buy a new ride when your ready.

learn to ride the 900 to its fullest before thinking of upgrading. A lot more of it is in the rider than most think

Better yet pass on the new 1000 and buy a nice used 954

Even better in the corners.

Re: Can my 900RR be made to run with 1000's

If the 1000 is too pricey you could always get a 929 or a 954. They are also quite an improvement over the 900 IMHO. Please don't be offended when I say that riding a 900 once was all it took for me to decide that I didn't want one. It was love at first ride for me on the 929. It's only natural to want newer faster better whatever, there is value in being content with what you have. (which is a stinking fast bike) I agree with sinfuldragon about learning to master your ride. I am considered by friends to be an good rider, but I have a long long way to go before I would say that I have mastered the 929. I intend to practice until either I have mastered it or I reach my potential and I don't give a damn if I can keep up to anyone.
