just finished my dynojet jet kit and ti force slip on my 01

I just finished exhaust and dynojet jet kit and it's running great. I am going to tweek it a bit once I get cash up for dyno time. I am planning to do my chain and sprockets next -1/+2. Does this work on an 01? Anyone have any suggestions on things I can do over the winter?

depending on what your looking for, i would do -1/+1. thats what i have on my 01 and its more than enough as these bikes already have great low-mid range anyway, first gear is useless unless you just want to look at the sky, 2nd you even have to fight it to keep the front down. but idk, maybe +2 in the rear wouldnt be much different. makes clutching 2-3rd gear wheelies cake though.

I recently did -1+2 and I thought it was two much. I currently have +2 on the rear sprocket and love it.

slowly rolling on the throttle is the only way to accelerate in 1st, a quick 1/4 turn of the throttle and ur'll be sky high. thats how it is with my set up anyway.

I re-geared my 2000 in 02 and hated it -1F don't remember what the back was. On back roads it was impressive but the first time I rode on the interstate it felt like i was in 4th when I was in 6th. If you never get near or go over 140 you'll probrably like it

My speedo was all screwed up. I would be cruising down the interstate along with everybody else and my speedo was indicating 90mph when I know I was only doing about 70-75mph. Cruising rpm's were way too high as well. Made a lot of vibration in the grips.

u need a speedo healer when changing sprockets.

yeah def, need a speedohealer, im just too cheap to buy one haha. ive trained myself not to even pay attention to what it shows because i know its off. i do know that for about every 100miles, my bike shows about 112, so it will affect the actual mileage on the bike as well unless corrected.

Hey notguilty411, did you notice a big difference with the full exhaust system on your 01R1? Would you say it was worth the money?

i did the exhaust and jet kit at the same time, and honestly i felt like i gained a little more all throughout the power band, especially in the upper rpms. that was coming from stock, so im not really sure how it would compare to just a slip on. and i got a good deal on the exhaust from a buddy, so to me it was def, worth the money. personally i dont know if i could get myself to spend all the money for the akra if i would have had to buy it new, but then again im poor and putting myself through college so money really isnt something i have just lying around.

Thanks for the help. I'm having a hard time trying to justify spending that kind of money unless I can be guarunteed i'll get at least another 10hp out of it.

I would like to know now but 2002 was a long time ago and I only had it geared like that for a couple days. Last half dozen or so time I rode my 2000 I topped it out and only hit 180 stock geared and had a 14, 04 R1 & 2 06 1000's pass me with what seemed like 15mph more to play with. Did'nt think to ask what gearing they had. I have'nt run at those speeds every weekend since 04. My rides in the last couple of years are more hitting curves and stock geared seems perfect any more low end would probrably just spin the tire more than it is.
