Any easy upgrades I should make while the engine is out?

I am dropping the engine to repair something on the top end.

I do not want to build a full out race engine.
I just want to know if there are any simple mods I should make while the engine is out.
Smog block offs or something like that.

Yeah, PAIR removal and plates. You can get to the spark plugs real easy, even if it's not time yet, well, you can do it now anyway. Since the throttle bodies are off the engine (assuming they are) you can attach and route new cables (OEM or a whole new quick throttle)... that's all I can think of.

Put a fuckin turbo on it.

But no really, the PAIR system, and new plugs if you want... Otherwise that's about it. You could power wash it too and clean it all up nice and pretty.

PAIR removal would be easy but still a waste of time IMO. If you don't plan to race and track your time then don't remove it.

Or you could buy a 1K and still be faster.

So what would stock 09+ pistons do? I always thought that's probably what helps them get better midrange and maybe a little better top once you bypass the electrical restrictions....Z Bomb

The Z-Bomb doesn't give power, it restores power lost as the 09 ECU turns down power in top of the range to meet EURO5 sound/emissions (I believe). That's why the 07-08 gain nothing/aren't used with the Z-Bomb.

Correct. I guess I didn't word that good enough.

I think you know what I mean about the pistons.

Oh, my bad. I've never heard of any named, specific difference in the internals but their could be changes - but splitting the cases and doing surgery gets so costly so fast you'd be much better off doing the stuff from the HRC power up kit instead.

Lots of easy upgrades. Question is how much you want to spend? Cams are easy. Sending the head out for porting is easy. Thinner head gasket for more compression, or shave the head while its getting ported. None of this is cheap usually.

'06 F4i- Yoshimura RS-3C, Racetech springs and valves, Ohlin's rear shock, steel brake lines, 520 conversion. 87k miles and counting.....
'08 600RR- Stripped trackbike. CRG shorty brake lever, goodridge front brake lines
'15 1000RR- weekend toy

From what I understand the piston tops are shaped differently.

What is Pair?

Any links to a how -to?
