[quote=zl1000 pilot;110466]as for the cams i have both manuels for both bikes and the valve timing isnt much different only 5 degrees in duration the main difference is in the brain or cdi the timing advance is very short on the zl compared to the zx-1000 A
another thing to note in the carb issue is the fact that the ZX-10 b or tomcat models had large horse power differences the unristricted B1 was 137 bhp the restricted B1-3 was 125 bhp this was achived the same way as in the ZX-11 the carbs didnt open fully
to gain the 12 bhp you changed the carb tops so that the carbs opened fully in this case in is practical to asume that changing the carbs on the zl from a "restricted" 34mm to an "unrestricted 36mm the power gain could be from 110 bhp to 125 bhp as with the example above
If I remember correctly the difference in actuall running duration was like 15 degrees wit a tadd bit more lift and diferent opening and closing points on the valves as well. So I think you are really limiting your performance gains by not paying more attention to the cams.
I really dont want to be the one to have to say this but if you believe that the HP gains suggested by the sellers of jet kits and pipes, ect are what you will get with each and every install you are sadly misled.
