Most hp on 2008?

What do you folks think would be the most horsepower I could get out of my 2008 rr? I'm looking to do some track days, but would still like it streetable. However I don't mind if it's a little rough. Not interested in installing turbo or NOS and would like the stock motor for now, but I would like to get it up toward 200...closer to wsbk specs. I'm definitely not opposed to inner engine work. Anyone know?

Re: Most hp on 2008?

you got 1000cc's right. isnt that fast enough...

pipe it and a power commander. have you done trackdays yet? if not i would sign up before you start wrenchin on horsepower and see how you are with what you got first.

i personally wouldnt touch the internals of the engine unless i blew it up first, if it aint broke...

last i checked arent the 08+ around 170-180hp at the flywheel.

Re: Most hp on 2008?

Yep it's got good power, and yep I've done track days. Just thinking ahead...wondering what others have done. Not saying I don't love the bike just the way it is...

How much money do you have and how long do you want the engine to last?

Re: Most hp on 2008?

Forget about figures. If you want to go faster gear it down -1front, maybe + 2 or 3 on the rear. Get the suspension professionally setup - this will make you faster than any power mods. Perhaps some braided brakelines too, will help reduce fade with the constant braking thats inevitable at the track.

As for some extra 'cheap' power, full system, aftermarket air filter, pc3 and custom map will see you with another 5-10hp pretty easily, without effecting engine longevity much at all.

Or if you just want big numbers for the wank factor?

I agree with the suspension setup and brakes etc...as for the power, I am more curious than anything at this point. Just wonder what would be obtainable, but not need to be prepared with a team of mechanics or a 15 minute warmup cycle. Thanks for the reply.

Re: Most hp on 2008?

Well everything that I've seen as far as "cheap" upgrades for horsepower
actually don't help much at all. Aftermarket air filter installation has show 2-5 horsepower loss in comparisions that I've seen. Exhaust from the heads back
also showed loss of power. I feel that the manufacturer has spend countless dollars on research and development to give the bike as much horsepower and performance as it currently has. I agree with the fact that you should
take it to a trackday and see how you do with it stock. The brake lines and
suspension setup is worth alot more that you'll every spend money wise on
it..... that's just my opinion.

Re: Most hp on 2008?

I am looking at a new 08 black and yellow and am thinking of including some extras in on the loan. I am thinking about the setup in the link. It doesn't cost that much and I am thinking that would be more than enough power that I would need.
