I need wisdom and ideas on upgrades for a 2006 999. Nothing wrong with it but looking for future options because I am getting restless. Also any ideas of costs in today's $ since our econ is going crazy. Currently has a full 57mm, Dubeck chick (similar to PCIII) Chris Sanders at Batley's installed and tuned / dyno'd. Larger air tubes, removed all the emission pluming using using the TPO stuff, K&N crank breather. Done other stuff to the bike but this is what is motor related. Thanks

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.

You got the wrong idea here, if you want to improve fuel consumtion you cannot get better throttle response.If downgrade the carb for better fuelling then of course it will has less throttle response.More response means quicker petrol consumption.
It sounds to me as if there is a carb out of balance. If it will only run when the choke is on, it sounds as if one or more of the idle jets has become blocked. This could be caused by rubbish in the fuel tank getting into the carbs or by using bad fuel. Either way it is not something that would normally be caused by a carb clean. It sounds, from what you say, as if they are right. sorry. Drain the tank and flush it. also check the carb float bowls for any rubbish. And change the fuel filter, or fit an in-line filter to help eliminate this problem in the future.
I wonder why the kit to begin with. Unless you have changed the back pressure. It does sound ALL wrong anyway Less back pressure = more fuel larger jets all the way around The needle will also need to be larger. WRONG KIT I think If you keep changing things you can make it really loud and have less H.P. & torque and get 19 MPG. After you start riding again be aware of the mixture by looking at the plugs. If you run it lean enough it will get so hot it will melt the pistons
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

First off did you buy it new? Second has it gone through its break in tune up yet?Did you do the re jeting? My guess is it was re jeted wrong & neeeds to be re jeted again or could also need more air(upgraded air kit) or a tfi or power comand fuel mod.My bike also poped untill I did the air & fuel upgrades & them upgrades will also give you a much needed house power needed for this rig.
The gears ARE probably fine. The problem is a slightly bent shift fork. Since the engine is apart I would STRONGLY advise you replace the shift fork. If nothing else it is cheap insurance that you won't have to replace it four weeks later because it won't shift into first. I have replaced shift forks that looked perfectly good but were bent such the you couldn't get into 2nd gear. Looks can be deceiving.
