I have a k7 600 and it feels like 1st and 2nd gear lags a little. When I take off from stand still it seems like I could be getting a whole lot more. Is it the sprockets? The previous owner changed them. I have yet to see how many teeth. Plus I dont know if the front sprocket has been changed. I will find out more and post it. What is the best number of teeth for my bike to perform better? Or is there any other mods I could do?

The stock gearing for that year is 16-43 try a -1 and a exhaust.
How many miles are on your bike? It might need some plugs and a filter. Just a thought...

Contact the previous owner if you can and ask him about the sprockets. If he sprocketed for a higher top speed, it would be slower down low. Not sure why anyone would do that though unless they are trying to go for mile runs maybe.

Most people like to do -1 tooth in the front and +2 teeth in the back. -1/+2 won't take much away from the top end, but it will make your bike accelerate like a rocket. I love it, definitely a cheap and easy way to make your bike more enjoyable when you get used to or tired of your bike.

edit: thanks hyfee!

you could always look into buying a TRE or doing the mod for it, we have that somewhere on here. Only thing is I think it turns off the gear indicator.

I have been looking into getting that TRE mod. But I have yet to see anybody with it around here with it to ask them what they thought about it.

If your plugs haven't been changed they need to be. On my 600 it made a difference check the air filter and the gearing too. Start simple...

There are a few, I personally am waiting to hear more about GsxrTune. They flash your ECU instead of buying a PC or Bazzaz, and I believe they have you hook up a PC just to record info on how you ride your bike and then build a map that perfectly suits your riding style. It is also much cheaper. Worth looking into.

Actually for acceleration you want smaller sprocket in front and bigger in rear. So you'd want -1 front +2 rear or -1/+2. Like stated in your sig

ECU flashing would help tremendously with the lag... you get the benefits of the TRE without compromised Ram-Air compensation and without effecting the Gear Indicator. Also, We will load up a fuel map and ignition map that will work with your exhaust and automatically be corrected for current atmospheric conditions unlike any piggy-back tuner. this means that you will no longer need different maps for different conditions.

If you are unsure i recommend you contact hyper15125 or Solo-six among the others regarding the difference an ECU flash makes.

Also, Satisfaction is Guaranteed.

We do offer tuning to a data log but unfortunately we cannot provide the data-logger. We recommend using an innovate data logger. You will need to log WB o2, RPM and TPS channels (IAP and SAP also greatly help tuning the low range). Many shops have data-logging capabilities and you could probably find a shop locally to set up the data-logging for relatively cheap. Typically we will just use a published fuel map or a map developed in-house for the base fuel values.

try this....

you need a tre man.. there is a company on the west coast who makes them with the usual 1-5 indicator fix and the new ones have the 6'th gear fix for the gear indicator.. amazing difference. another thing about the tre is that your bike retards the timing for many things...like a fuel or air code... or when the clutch is out of adjustment... funny story...(like a dumbass) i hated that you had to pull the clutch on my 08 to start it so in looking i saw the little button behind the lever that signals the motor that the clutch is in...i figured "well thats easy" and i cut the little tit off.. it worked!!!! but it activated the timing retarder and made it run just like you are saying! me being the anal prick that i am had it in the shop the next day...(rick beggs..at R-n-R cycles in sterling VA.) and my buddy rick said...you are a real dumbass!!! it was costing me about 10hp with the retarder....lol get a tre man. and like i said.. they got 'em now so they dont change the indicator at all.. moral of the story...(PULL IN THE FUCKIN CLUTCH TO START IT) LOL :arsenal:arsenal:arsenal:arsenal:arsenal:arsenal

Agreed, even just a TRE makes a big difference. We offer TRE only flashing for $50. With this, the gear indicator still works and unlike any plug-in tre the ram-air compensation still works.
