I would like to do this mod, but would like to know the best way of going about it, and if anyone has step by step pics, or pics of where the secondaries are... please post! I want to make sure I know what the hell I am doing before dismantling factory engineered parts. :lol:

Thanks in advance.

search rider forum.com it has a long story on this mod. after reading it i thought it was a bad idea. if all kawasaki had to do to the 03-06 zed was remove the secondary butterflies i do not think they would have spent a bazillion bucks changing things in the 07-09 zed heavy crankshaft , smaller valves.throttle bodies and cams if all they had to do is do this mod instead.

I have a factory service manual for my bike if you want to look at it sometime. I'm sure that would help.

I imagine that this mod would make more power but I wonder about throttle response at low speed. The throttle on my bike is already damn sensitive when it's lightly loaded.

Jim, Thanks. I imagine your motor, and mine are probably way different. Mine is just a re-tuned ZX9 motor. I have the factory Service Manual for my bike, and it is almost worthless.

Z1000 Rider, Thanks. Have you done this mod, and if so was it a night and day difference?

Yes, I have and it does make a difference, moreso if you have a Powercommander though to get the fuel to air ratio 100% of course. It gets rid of the very slight flutter, if you will, that happens around 6k. Basically it pulls more cleanly all the way up to the top.

If you want to try it first to compare the difference real quick, turn the key to on and unlplug the black connector on the side of the bike, then fire it up and go ride.
The difference by doing the process listed in the link above will make it so that your FI light will not be on unlike it would be with just the connector unplugged on the right side of the bike.

I have mine removed ,but I saw the piece on disconcerting the two plugs.so I decided to try it, so I didn't here the motor but it didn't work the FI light started flashing. I thought I did every thing that it said but my bike is 07 not 03-06
