i have a 01 zr8 and was thinking about reed spacers and maybe replacing the stock reeds to get a little better throttle response and maybe even mileage..........anyone have any ideas on this or other things i can do...........i love the sled and will keep it for a while but i'm a little bored and i need to tinker with it a bit...........the motor is stock and i'm not looking to spend a ton of money on it

I think reeds and reed spacers would work out fine! I'm sure there are lots of people on this site that have made that upgrade especially on that particular sled that can give you an opinion on whether it's worth it or not. There a plenty of bolt-ons you can do, also. Many of us headed straight for the clutches because there are so many things you can do to them. You can gain so much without even touching the motor! Whatever you decide, research the hell out of it, 'cause you can never have to much info and you learn about the pros and cons :div20:

Honestly if that's all you plan on doing I would just skip it.

You'd be better off w/ a clutch kit and some aftermarket skis.. :div20:

does the torque arm make a big difference............did the 900s come with them and just not the 800s?

It greatly increases belt life and keeps your clutching far more consistent. No it did not come on either on em. I'm using the Sno tek arm, easily installed and does not increase vibration through the bars like most of the other offerings out there, plus Bill is a great guy to deal with.
As for clutching, over 20,000 miles (yes that reads correctly) on two different '02 ZR800's using Goodwyn clutching with zero complaints.

I almost forgot..............read up on the exh valves hitting the pistons and make yourself a set of spacers, best $10-$20 bucks you'll ever spend.
