...but now she's all back together with:

new, hopefully non-defective, Power Commander :headbang
Galfer SS brake lines with speedbleeders
K&N air filter
LED resistors
fresh oil

Looks like fun Brian. How does she feel now after the mods?


Where are the pics Tanya? Did you get her out today and see how she feels?

It must of been a modding weekend. I just installed a Power Commander on the ZX10 and had it custom mapped. What a difference!!

I just did my front brake lines, too... and a new exhaust, air filter, oil change, chain and sprockets... ;)
That didn't take too long :)

What exhaust did you go with...another Akrapovic?

What brake lines? I think I'm going to like the Galfers. The install was extremely easy with the use of the speedbleeders...except for bleeding the master cylinder...that was a PITA!

I got a great deal on a high mount titanium M4 (ebay).

I got the Goodridge lines and speedbleeders... which, by the way, didn't seem to work very well on one side for some reason.... hmmmm... I think I'm gonna like the employee discount. ;)

I'm sure a certain other person is happy with your decision.

I'll have to get back to you on that...I rode it a whole 3-4 miles this afternoon straight home. I was hoping to get out this afternoon but, like usual, the rain is rolling thru.

The brakes feel just as good if not better. I've talked to alot of people that say they will firm up after a few miles of riding. How are yours? I know you installed some a couple of months ago on the 750.

No real difference with the Powercommander because I've been riding around with one for the last 2K + miles. I've been using the map Dynojet made available for a 600RR with a Jardine slip-on with a stock or aftermarket air filter. I've also got the Accelerator Pump feature enabled. I'm hoping to get in for a custom map soon...I've been promised some dyno time at a local shop.

I noticed right away that the brakes on the 750 had improved. It's nice to have a rear brake that actually works!

If you're looking for a guy who does really good custom map work you could always try the guy I took my bikes to. He works at Mike's Cycle Shop in Menasha. It's a little bit of a ride but I've found his work to be well worth it.

They replace the bleeding nipple on the caliper. Makes it much easier to bleed the brakes.

hey guys, what are speedbleeders? Are they located up by the master cyl?
Speedbleeders replace the stock bleeders and make bleeding your brakes a one person job...

...instead of going on any further, check out their site

www.speedbleeder.com

They took real good care of me. I actually talked to them 3 separate times on the phone...A+ service
