Race Spec Thundercat

Post  Cooper494 on Sat Sep 07 2013, 20:14

Has anyone made any big performance enhancing mods to their bikes? I'm hoping to get a quick shifter and various other bits. Different Sprockets etc

What would people suggest? Sprockets should be fitted next week. Needed more acceleration tongue The bandit 12 jump was abit much for me haha

Up 1 tooth on the rear sprocket and down 1 or 2 on the front will improve acceleration, but knock back your top end speed, and will make your speedo read inaccurate.

Stage 1 & 2 tuning . . . carb re-jetting, free flow exhaust, head skim, polished valves and high lift cams etc. etc.

How much money you got ? What's your level of spannering ??

But of course all of the above are "modifications" and you'll have to inform your insurance . . . which (if your age is correct in the profile), will significantly bump up your premiums.

It's direct off the front wheel on a Cat, so should be fine.
