I called a shop and asked about increase in hp. Taking a stock 95 cbr900rr, add kerker exhaust with factory pro air intakes, then add a stage 1 jet kit, get it installed and tuned properly. He told me I would only get like 5 hp.
:eek: Is this true? Cause damn, if it is, that sucks. What can I do to increase hp.
In addition, I have a 4 degree ignition advance plus I changed my sprockets -1 and +2. What else can I do?

The shop's estimate sounds about right. If you're looking for 20 hp, you're not going to get it from a pipe.

Kerker? Are you shopping from the JC Whitney catalog? :eek:

j/k :p

How much money do you want to spend on an older bike? You can get it ported, big bore kit, etc. I think you can get a bore kit in 945cc or 970cc.

After all that, you'd probably save money by trading for a newer bike. ;)

How much power you want is all relative to how much money you can spend. After getting a big bore kit, getting all the motor/head work done, then reworking the suspension you might as well of bought a new bike.

Unless there is sentimental value to the bike then just get a new one.

There is no one mod outside of a power adder (nitrous, turbo, super-charger) that is going to give you HUGE gains on a motorcycle.

Whatever. An Arata exhaust is proven to make massive gains on any bike ever made in the whole entire universe. The greatest tuner on the globe even says so.
