Default modding the 98 zr 600

So at first i was looking for cheap performance mods to do to my 98 zr 600, but then 2 nights ago my motor let go. So now im throwing quite a bit of money at it with boring, port and polish, gearing, new clutch kit also redo all the bushings and buttons. Looking for a mbrp can to throw on it also. A lot more money then i wanted to spend but guess now is the time to do it.

Couldnt tell you. I just picked up the sled this fall and the spring is to dirty to tell what colour i believe it was a epi trail kit.

What size are you boring it out to anyway?? And if you're going through the trouble to bore, re-chrome, port and polish etc,, why run a stock stock pipe with a can?? Get some twin pipes+stingers or get a y pipe-single pipe and a can, run a timing key maybe/possibly?, get some reeds and jet it accordingly(most important).. Mine is a stock bore 600cc with all the mods listed above(twins, reeds, timing, ported, etc) set-up for sno-x and its faackin awesome to ride. wheeeelie machiiine for a smaller cc sled... Its even better because its in a 00 440 sno pro chassis

The y pipes and single pipes are hard to come by now same with twins, but if i can find a full set of single then ill definitly run that with it. I was planning on buying reeds and a timing key, what degree key do you recommend? And ill be porting it myself.

For the gains you will see from the pipe/pipes, it isn't worth the purchase unless you get an insane deal...I have the twins installed and the biggest benefit is the improved fuel mileage.

There is a stock pipe setup for your sled floating around the forums...supposed to be quick in 1000' and quicker than the same sled with aftermarket exhausts/clutching.
