Great ride today, and finally able to ride the bike the way I want and the way it was intended...



I also got to ride Scot Forry's modified Z1000 (Akro full system, custom tune) and Barry B.s 150WHP C14. Man I'm loving this N1K. It does it all well, and it handles well in aggressive sport riding situations. Very pleased with the product at this point.

Bit of time ont the ninja 1000 today bolting up goodies. Akrapovic 4-1, fender elimaintor, gear position indicator, heated grips, air injection block off plates and a 02 optimiser.

Looks much better...


..and some time on the dyno confirms it goes alot better

Blue = Stock bike
Red = Akra 4-1
Green = Akra 4-1 and no air box lid

150+hp aint bad on a dyno that usually reads low in comparison to other dynos. Looking forward to spending a bit more dyno time finding the restriction to flow in the airbox and eliminating it.

Tuning it with a power commander should net a little more as well

Damn... 151 at the wheel... Thats NIIIICE!

Yesterday when I rode Scot's Z1000 and he rode my N1K his exact words to me were "Don't touch it. I spent a lot of money on mine and I'm not sure it was worth the results". That said, his Akro full exhaust sounded great and I did like the way his PC5/blockoff mods cleaned up the throttle and made it more snappy. I'll probably send my PCM out for a tune to get rid of the fuel cutout and do a full exhaust swap. Maybe do the box/blockoff, but that'll probably be it.

Bought the Cali. Sci. windshield, no matter how I adjust the master cyclinder it still touches it. Helps with the cooler temps and bugs.

You snuck a Z1000 into this thread!

Just kidding, looks nice with the "touring" windshield. The Cal Sci Tech windshield for the Ninja 1000 looks like the windshield of a car. Huge.

Stock these bikes are about 125 rwhp, so I don't think this dyno reads low.
Also, make sure you won't end up with a high AFR, it will register more power, but with increased engine wear due to a lean mixture.

Very nice bike by the way, It is on top of my wish list!

Scot has Carrozzeria rims on his bike. Probably affects the feel quite a bit. Was good to get out and ride.

No way a Ninja 1000 pulls 151 real world rwhp and that too without a fuel controller. That dyno is very optimistic to say the least... the most pulls I have seen are around 140-141 hp including those of Ivans ....

Excellent Blakebird, the corbin looks good! The sargent on my N1K has been feeling great. It took a few hundred miles for it to conform to my sit-bones, sort of a break-in period, and now its comfortable for 500 mile days. I generally get off the bike about every 120 miles for gas, and I can feel the foam "recover" within a few moments - good to go till the next gas stop.
I checked out your past motorcycles - and am interested in your observations and comparisons of the N1K to all those fine bikes you owned.
Cheers!

Winter weather up until recently, and a brutal work schedule have limited my rides to some commuting and a handful of days up in the canyons that were still fairly sandy....no long trips yet and limited strafing. Not enough seat time yet, but I don't see any negatives on the horizon.

I really like the obvious stuff...comfortable riding position, stout midrange and top end hit, slick transmission, compact & light feeling.

the dyno's electronic brake was broken allowing it to spin up quicker and give the false readings :( :(

i really wanted to believe i just had a fast one:) wasn't aware of the hp they usually have

AFR was still around 14/1 or richer with the air box lid off. Safe enough for a run or two. Would need to do something about it if i was going to run it with that much air flow all the time
Ive got a power commander but i need to modify the electrical connectors to make it work on the ninja 1000.
