Hello, this is my first thread posted. I absolutely love my r6, ive' put 15,000 miles on her in 6 months!My question is this: In the future I plan on doing some major engine work and modifications and get into the 130 140 hp. I know this will cost $$$$$$$$$, i am prepared. BUT what is the best/cheaper route to do this? I am learning the mechanics of my bike myself and do absolutely everything I can before taking her to the shop. She already has a full akrapovic system, pc3 and I just did a valve adjustment and went back to OEM CCT. So, what is the route you would take if you wanted to get your r6 AS FAST AS POSSIBLE. and no I do not want an r1 at this time.

    you'd have to do a heck of alot to get the bike to 130hp.
    That includes $28/gallon race fuel and the management menagerie that goes with it.
    Where a stock liter bike makes about 73+ ft lbs of torque and at least 160 hp to the rear tire.

      Okay so what about the big bore kit and get an aftermarket head? How much would this change the power?

        ok read my post slow. If you had $7500 to throw at the motor... you might be able to get 130 at the tire on MR12. Maybe a few hp more. Thats about all youre going to get. Unless you can ride the balls off it at the daytona 200 it wont make as much power as a stock liter bike made in the last 10 years.
