He means an ignition advance.. Typically a 4 degee.
You don't have to rejet with a bolt on but it does not hurt. You cna also go the easier and cheaper route of shimming the needles. I just did a jet kit on mine though only about a 100 miles so far but my 4k to 6k hesitation is GONE and the bike "feels" stronger (butt dynos are notoriously inaccurate).
I'm going to dyno it in the next few weeks to see what it does. Depending on the jet kit you may not want to change the air filter. I know Ivan does not recommend swapping out the OE filter with his kit.

you can't swap the filter with his kit? hmmm, kind of odd since the combination of the intake and exhaust change usually are the reason leading to the rejet

You can but he recommends a different jet - his point is that there's nothing gained in swapping out the OE filter, at least in his testing he claims less than 1/2 hp if that which is not worth slapping an after market filter in for. At least not with just a bolt on.
Some OE filters actually flow very well. I know BMW OE filters (car) flow as well as or better than K&N, UMC, etc. Apparently our OE filters are pretty good to start with.
He recommends K&N with some of his jet kits and not with others, the ZX6R/ZZR is one he claims the OE filter is just fine in.

He did offer to take my $60 for a K&N filter if I REALLY asked him nicely..

Is that a Yosh RS3 bolt on you have? I'd be interested in seeing the dynos if you get them. I'm thinking about the Yosh RS3 CF pipe, and I'd like to know if the jet kit is worth it. I'm also planning on the ignition advancer, and that may end up being my first mod. I only wish there was a place around here that tuned bikes. There may be, but I can't seem to find one.
