One question, is there a difference between the 04,05,06 R1 when it comes to power?

Some dealers swear that the 04 is a dog compared to the 06, I've had the 05 but my experience says they wrong. What have you guys found?

Also they say the ECU limits the bikes performance seen as there was a change for 05 on the ignition curves, now if that is the case, won't a dynoject ignition box sort that? Hell, does the 05 harness/ECU fit the 04?

I've been searching and calling around to the tuners...concensus is that the 04-05 are the same when it comes to making power, even if you have worked the motor. The 06 tends to make a bit more power, 07 totally different motor with regards to the head not being the Genesis 20valve.

The ECU's are different but what I don't know.:boobies ..dealer tells me ignition timing...

I also asked about the Dynojet Ignition module, tuners say for the R1, the gain is not worth the cash, very small.


What I wanna know is cam's, a ZX10 made 178rwhp compared to my 150rwhp, this at altitude. BUT, the ZX has some hot cams and is being used for drag racing. How in blue balls hell do you gain so much just by working the cams??:dundun:
