Have seen at least 10 other people now say the same thing
Seems like most stock bikes can hit the rev/limit in 4th most of the time.

Thinking Kawasaki got the perfect cocktail right with the stock set up.

But seen Dyno proof of gains with exhaust and intake and both separately
Seems like when a fuel controller is added is when it can go backwards.

Good News is $900.00 for Exhaust, Intakes, Fuel Controllers and Dyno tunes it can run good as Stock again

Easy boys, just a little humor

Sweet! Good advice too! We can compare '17-'18-'19 stockers back to back and see how Kawi has tweaked it over the years. (I honestly don't notice a lick of difference between our Zs, so I'm intrigued by your '19)

Yah, I wouldn't call it quiet, it just doesn't have much character. I think my hole punched in the last baffle chamber is pretty harmless, you get a little bit of grumble on decel but overall no meaningful increase in noise. The hole right after the cats? Too loud, but fun to play around with when I feel like being annoying. Really liking the ability to turn the noise down when I want to. I was looking forward to hearing your ZoOM Brute, but I certainly don't blame you for enjoying stock.

THE MOST IMPORTANT thing to understand about tuners, it they're only as good as the map you load in them. You can install quality tuner such as the Bazzaz or PCV, and make a bike run fantastic or horrible, and that's only a reflection of the map, not the tuner. We have some really specific maps for specific parts combos that work to perfection and build huge power. Change a few parts, and not so much... The solutions are (a) purchase product and tuner packages designed to work together, (b) have a REPUTABLE tuner build a map on a dyno, or (c) utilize an auto-mapper to it's full potential, understanding how it works.

I have the PCV and the available maps were only ok....The autotuner will dial your setup way good. You have to play with the AFR tables but you will get good results with your setup and local conditions. After playing with the autotune my bike with cam-pipe-pod filter runs and sounds great.
