    Default 03 zx12 engine mods

    My dad and i just purchased a 2003 zx12r Engine. We are putting it in a dirtbike hillclimb chassis. Which the bike will be run in the open class and that makes it so their is no rules on what can be done inside the motor. So im looking for a good source of help with making my motor make good power. We both are new with this motor but from all my studying these motors are sick!!!!!

    so if anyone will let me pick their brain for some help its greatly appreciated.

    get raedy to open your wallet wide stick with pistons if you can no strokers they are hard to make live only a hand full of people I would let build a stroker 12 motor. good luck with the project send pics when you get started if you get a good head and that 1287 piston kit it will be a wicked ride for sure especially if you can run a lil nitro and make it live I would love to come see it run.
