1. Install a larger main jet to your standard fxr150 cabrurettor. We suggest fitting a 117.5 main jet, also remove the airbox and replace with an appropriate pod type airfilter. you will notice a gain in power and also a cool induction noise! 2. Fit a new aftermarket carb like a Keihin PE28 this is a chrome round slide carb which has the advantage over the stock carb that while still being 28mm there is no butterfly and shaft obstructing the airflow. 3. Another easy option is a GN250 carb, it’s a CV type of about 33mm, you can fit this with stock GN jetting and the engine will run GREAT and give quite a noticeable gain in power all over the rev range. 4. Try a flatslide carb from a DR200 if you can find one that is! I have one fitted to my race bike (see projects section) and i'm now looking for the best jetting options, but for now with the jetting i have made it looks to be a very promising carb for the fxr150, check back soon! 5. Honda XL250 carb, this so far has worked by far the best with my race engine and also very good with the std engine, but i did have to make a new throttle cable. For my standard road engine i used a 140mains jet, for my race engine with cams i had to drop the size and use a 130 main jet.

Trying to figure away to upgrade the performance on my 02 zx9. already got jets, and timing advance. Yes, I should just get a new bike because the major mods would probably prove costly and carbs are a...

Hi and welcome to fixya,

By the way, nice bike! If you've already twiddled with the jets. there's only one option I have in mind. Performance Exhaust, open type exhausts for added +15 HP( or so they say).. but its guaranteed to improve performance. a turbo kit would be insane. Performance filters as well. K&N would be a good choice for air and oil filter.

Hope this helps

Hi there. To upgrade your old rear shock is a good idea, however very expensive. Makers like Koni, and Ohlins, will have a rear shock to fit your bike, but unless your willing to part with about $1000, then considermy second solution. Have your old rear shock re built, or re furbished, by a qualified suspension mechanic, for a fraction of the cost. It is also possible to customise, and taylor your old shocky to suit you. Example,shorten the spring?, add a spacer to stiffen it up a bit, less oil, or more oil?
I would look into a rebuild first, unless, like i say, you are prepared to spend about $1000 plus.
Anything you choose, will definately enhance your bike.
Good luck

I want to upgrade my stator on my Virago 250 to accomodate heated gear. What can I replace it with and where would I find it? Thanks, Vtwinbabe

hi,this may help,upgrading a stator is a very expensive option,(the standard ones are expensive enough),by heated gear i assume you mean heated hand grips?.if so then a better option would be to have the heated accessories wired through a relay and feeding direct (via the relay)from the battery,also look at a higher rated battery of the same external dimensions,both of these options are easy and relatively inexpensive,i have heated grips,seat,driving and spotlights and a 200w per channel stereo on my goldwing simply with everything running thriugh relays with a direct switced feed to a heavy duty battery and have had no problems at all even in a minus 15 deg c newzealand winter...cheers

Upgrade the exhaust

The 07 bikes have the 02 sensors hat self adjust in cruise mode. The problem is that the mixture is real lean in this mode for EPA regs. When you add just slipons, the mixture will become a bit leaner and the 02 sensors will self adjust. Problem is they can only self adjust so much and are at the edge of the air fuel ratio that will give you a good running engine. With the addition of a fuel adjusting unit, whether it be a SERT or a PC III or TFI, the fuel will be richened up to a more workable ratio and the bike will run better and cooler. The Stage 1 intake is optional but consider the addition of the stage 1 with slip ons and a fueler of sorts will add about 10-12 HP and also TQ which will make the bike run better and a bit cooler also.

2006 999 motor upgrades

Nichols lightweight flywheel. Nemesis ecu +3 520 conversion Carbon BST's if you can afford them, apparently a world of difference. You're close to me, if you want to check out my setup to see let me know. Besides that, cam timing/squish and a overbore/head modification by Ducpond might be nice too.
