Opinions please..... went down to Fast by Ferracci today and talked to them about doing a high compression piston and port performance upgrade to my 03' 999. I was going to do a "stroker" kit but it's too expensive. Right now I have a 54mm full exhaust, DP ECU and PCIII custom mapped. I had the mapping done when I had a Termi 1/2 system. The PCIII along w/the ECU and 1/2 system gave me 130/77. Now I have a new DP ECU along with the 54mm full system and haven't had it remapped because it's running too well right now. So... has anybody installed high comp. pistons in their 999 running a similiar set up. I not a horsepower junkie but I'm wondering if this is a worth while upgrade. Its about $1500 all together for the work.
bcm has 102mm big bore kits 2006 999s with 57mm termi 136 rwhp. same bike with BCM 102 kit with stock heads and stock cam timing 148 rwhp They have been racing a bike with this set up for 2 seasons with 0 problems. kit is pistons and nickasil cil ,job done in the frame 10 hour job
call them on tuesday and talk to leslie the owner or miles at the front counter they are very helpfull. they are currently installing a 100mm fx kit in my 749r i was impressed when kyle showed me the power curves from the 102mm 999s and when i was there kyle was porting the 102 and freshining the motor after 2 race seasons. the pistons that came out were mint with no visible signs of wear after all the race time he felt that in the street applications they will have absolute no relibality issues.They told me all there parts are race tested before they go on a single street machine
Bikes all together, owner also installed a yoyodyne lightweight flywheel. Just waiting for a decent day to take it for the test ride, we just got a bunch of snow and ice so that's gonna mess things up for alittle while.
Hey all! I just dropped off my 03 999 at DUCPOND motorsports in Winchester, VA. I met Donnie and his wife and took me on a lil tour of the shop as well! All I have to say is that he is a very very cool person and that I can't wait till I finish the rest of my tour in the middle-east so I can ride my 999!
I was gonna take it to the local dealer to get the 6,000 miles service, but one of the mechanics told me about the DUC POND and I was going to get my cylinder heads ported and all and get the Pistal high compression pistons insalled. So I am getting my 6,000 miles serive and all that above at DUC POND while I am gone. Im also gonna get a valve angle job and etc.... So I can't wait to get back and feel the outcome!
It will be dyno tuned over there as well and as soon it is finished I will get the numbers and let you all know!
