Default Bazzaz Z-bomb?

Should I get one for my k6 600? Do I even need it? I can get one for $30 bucks which is 40 cheaper than retail.

For $30, go for it. The Z Bomb is Bazzaz's version of the TRE. I wouldn't pay full price for one tho.

Awesome. That's what I thought it did and I saw somewhere that it added 7mph?

it bypasses the speed limiter..if a 600 is capable of exceeding 186 i dont know...never tried it on my liter bike..fastest i had it was about 170 i believe...that was fast enough to know i didnt want to do it again.

Default ZBomb

Not to burst your bubble, but I would call Bazzaz and see what the gains would be for the GSXR's. Bazzaz explained to me after I bought it unfortunately,the ZBomb is not a TRE for the GSXR's. I got rid of mine because the ZBomb was only a top speed eliminator and may help smooth out throttle a bit. You will gain absolutely no HP gains like some of the other Honda's . I like and use Bazzaz products but if you want a TRE go with something else if this is the case for you bike.

i disagree/agree, it will not make more horsepower, it does un-neuter the lower four gears...

That's why I would call Bazzaz directly to get correct information

From there site...they have a little truth in advertising issue:


Bazzaz Z Bomb - Most GSX-R's

Z bomb for GSX-R's


Z bomb Eliminates Performance Restriction imposed on bike via stock ignition timing in lower gears
Z bomb Improves Throttle Response
Zbomb Eliminates Top Speed Eliminator on some bikes "allowing the bike to exceed 185mph"
Z Bomb Will allow Gear indicator will function normally for gears 1-5 "will read 5th gear for both 5th & 6th"
Zbomb Can be utilized by itself, or with aftermarket Fuel Injection controller.

Have one on my bike and like it. The healtech is also a very nice one but cost little more. And as already stated it smoothed out my throttle and gave little more grunt to the lower gears. For 30 dollars seems worth it to me IMO

$140 is pretty steep. The guy sold it to someone else already but I'm on the look out for another one.
