I am New to this forum and in Kawasaki z1000's in general, I will be taking delivery of a 2018 z1000r Performance in 2 weeks time. I have not ridden an inline 4 since 2009 so am looking forward to a refresher on how smooth these motors are and how they perform now.
My question is what is the best tuning upgrade for this engine ie de-cat exhaust ECU flash ECT and does this improve power ect or am I just as well to leave as is from new.
ride her for a few months as there is plenty of power from stock and performance mods will invalidate any warrenty on engine, that said i tuned mine after 3 months, full exhaust, free flowing filter and an ecu flash and this added around 8 bhp,
Thanks yes you are right, I don't think I will touch anything for a while, still to see how this motorcycle will perform on twisty back roads, I suspect it will be at home on the twisty B roads which is what I bought it for ...fun fun fun... without the electronic wizzardry ..... back to basics with just twist grip ..... can't wait !
