got a deal i couldnt pass up on it... free.. just had to get rid of my rocket.... i cant turn down a 7k bike for a 4k bike... i figure its probably smart as i ride like a child on the rocket.. as it dynod in the lower 190 range with the work i had done... hopefully someone will make a piston rod combo for the street so ican push the limit with some juice or a little boost..
and nice i used to have a 86 gt.. now i own a 04 mach 1

Welcome aboard and congratulations on listening to your mom. LOL


You're in the right place because we have lots of interest in addressing both performance and appearance of the new Street 500 and 750.

"A little boost" you say? I'm just waiting for someone to be crazy enough to add an NO2 system to their Street. LOL

That may be me :p if anyone knows any killer mods for it let me know of any performance mods.. if we can bore this puppy's out.. nitrous ran through my head... I pick it up Wednesday :) must get rid of my zx10r soon.. thanks for the welcome guys :)

already ordered a firebrand exhaust and I am putting a hid in it also.. plan on seeing what I can do suspension wise pretty soon.. I love the look of the bike.. but I want her to rip a little harder

I'd say if you want to do anything to improve the bikes performance it has to begin with the suspension. Corners are free speed, IMO exploit the free speed with suspension mods before looking to raw mechanical power...

I wanna feel how it rides.. I can make it handle better quite easy.. but making it faster straight line is a task. I'm wondering how much nitrous the cylinders could take.. what compression is set it how the head will handle the pressure ect.. if I can slap a 33 shot on it.. and it rips.. great! If I can slap a turbo on it and make a 100 horse beast.. great.. if I can do a piston rod combo with nitrous and change the gears around alot I'll be even happier.. I want this to be a sleeper and I think it has the potential.. exhaust will be here Thursday bike will be here Wednesday at 330 lol

While my experience compared the handling of my Street 750 to my Sportster I found the handing to be much better reminding me of my Suzuki 600 that I had in the 1970's. On the flip-side my partner in crime was involved in professional motorcycle road-racing in the past and complained that it pushed a bit going into a turn.


Of course this is comparing the opinion of a street rider that wants very good performance and a professional racer that focused on the maximum possible performance out of the motorcycle. I would never find myself in the position of a professional motorcycle racer really pushing for maximum possible speed through a turn.

I would suggest ordering the service manual and parts book as a start. Best to know what you are starting with before deciding what to do.

Straight line fast....

Going to need to look at the hooks on this thing first. While I personally think the brakes are manageable. Straight line fast is going to require a caliper and pad change.

Forks are going to need to be worked on as there is a lot of pogo in it with the stock oil. Heavier oil will dampen it, but I would look into changing the valve set up it altogether if you are really going to straightline it.

The tires will take whatever you do to it. They are solid.

First gear is seriously low. I would not look into the gear box as much as changing the ratio of the output cog and the rear drive sprocket. I believe from the low gearing in first gear a taller ratio will be supported on the output to tire drive.

Planning on Nitrous or anything other than naturally aspirated engine you are going to need a race tuner or other way to play with the ratio on this EFI motor.

I would suggest a fork brace and a triple tree dampener as well. This is not a showa front end. This is an endurance front end. So I would be real careful when making go fast stuff without looking at the flex, follow, wobble and recovery of the front fork system.

There is a thread on here from a father son team that are at Bonneville speed trials now. They will have a lot of good information when they get back.

Someone posted a link to after market brake pads that are probably softer and will provide better stopping power (although I believe the stock pads are fine but this is from someone that rode motorcycles with drum brakes LOL). I don't believe a caliper change will be necessary with softer pads.

I agree that first gear is low enough that the final drive ratio is where a change can be made to improve top speed without adversely effecting low end performance. Stock it will climb a cliff in 1st gear and unless you plan on climbing cliffs a higher final drive gear ratio change will work well. I'm thinking of doing that as well.

I'm expecting after market EFI programming software for the Street engines to show up in a month or so.

picked the bike up today... gave it a run... pushes a bit outside... torque is very nice on it like how its flat not a surge.. very workable.. deff needs some steering stabilizer brakes need break in time so i wont judge them just yet.. mostly highway and curves.. not much braking so they were a bit spongy.. yet again brand new..
i have already looked at a tune for it iv got a bit of experience with that..
forks didnt feel too bad as for dampening but didnt get to really test it out.. ill reserve judgement.. but overall peppy bike... very quiet cant want until firebrand exhaust comes

BTW The Firebrand is going to be on the same lines as the Screamin Eagle Super Trapp and Vance and Hines is the best choice, you can run that straight if ya want.... Be sure to get tune up with up grades, don't burn a valve
