Engine rebuild.

Can I use a stock zr800 pipe on a stock zr 900 engine?
My 800 engine broke, and I wannt to build it up as a 900.
Anyone done that?
Is there any other things I should know.


Thanks.

By using the 800 pipe it won't make near the horsepower as the stock 900 pipe but it can be used. Other things to consider is the timing is different on the 900 so you will have to buy the new coil pack for a 900. B)

I have done 2 800-900 bigbore kits using wiseco 86 mm piston kit. The stock 800 pipe will work fine but an aftermarket pipe or 900 pipe will make more power. The jetting seemed to stay the same but careful how you recut heads and leave plenty of squish (70-80 thou). I had detonation problems (minor ) with tighter than this. I have run over 2000 miles with coated pistons and they looked great still. also be careful with exhaust valve clearance. The mountain cat CDI box works best or run a 2 degree key for best performance. Good luck

my friend had an 01 zr 800 with D and D twin pipes and when he got his new 900 they said he could not use them he had to buy 1010 pipes for it
