Which is better value for money? engine life? cost of install? and of course.. power..
If you call Ducshop (Mark) they will go over options, prices, dyno #s, and anything else. Great folks to deal with.

Do you have the velocity stack kit? Best bang for the buck IMO. Big difference you can notice.

In order of importance, IMHO

1. Airbox & filter mods
2. Performance exhaust with DP ECU or PC (tuned)
3. lightened flywheel (2lbs)
4. Cams
5. Head porting, with oversized intake valves
6. HC pistons
7. Big bore HC pistons
8. Ceramic coated piston tops & combustion chambers

Ive done all the above...

why Ceramic coat ? my bike doesnt overheat...

just wondering what the purpose other then heat dissipation would be ?

Also change the gearing...

I have 98mm High comp pistons .... what do you guys have ?

Ceramic coatings help keep the "heat" where it belongs in the combustion chamber, for better efficiency, also protects the piston crown from detonation.

I run the 100mm HC Pistal pistons from the Ducshop

I spoke to Mike from the Ducshop, I'm going to try out his velocity stacks and see how we go. should be +7-8hp if all goes well.

just a question tho, would the pistons give a better low down HP gain and than cams?

You will like the velocity stack kit!! Yes the pistons give an overall HP gain where the cams focus on a little midrange but bigger top end gain.

hmm... I'd say all of the above. joking aside, I can't add much to this thread because i just bought the ducshop hyper last week and it has ALL the engine mods. (cams/HC pistons/2-1 termi/ 100mm bore/KN velocity stack/ etc.) But I CAN say that if you go that route it is an absolute rocket... it's now more of uni-cycle than a motorcycle (can't keep front end down) :D

What's the problem, I do that with a full Zard system,DP ECU, DP lid, DNA filter, and a PCIII. Gotta roll of, then on hard but it does it. A few more HP would make it easier.

Out!
