4-5 HP from a sparkplug change... PT Barnum would be proud!

Brisk Premium Motorcycle Spark Plugs are unique spark plugs that are designed to
- increase horsepower,
- increase acceleration,
- improve throttle response,
- reduce emissions,
- improve fuel efficiency.

Brisk was founded in 1935 and collaborates with
Lamborghini
in their spark plug designs
.

360 degree spark ignition: Spark gap allowing extremely long surface spark discharge and utilizing the
option of spark discharge around the insulator nose (360°). The spark discharge
is always in the point with the highest fuel concentration. The firing end of
BRISK PREMIUM LGS spark plugs is projected far into the combustion chamber. Dramatically
higher combustion speed in the initial stage of flame extension within the
combustion chamber allows for perfect utilization of the fuel energy. The combustion
speed linked with knocking sensors of high–tech engines allows for increasing the
engine performance.

BRISK Power Chart about + 4-5 HP

I'm going order 8 of them for my the V8 in my truck. 8 x 4-5hp = 32 -40 hp increase, plus the better milage. Wow!! I always wondered what the Laborgini secret was... (the Lambo sunglasses didn't seem to work)

Front fairing looks great, in fact the whole bike looks great. If somebody is selling a fairing like that, I am buying. My fabricating skills could never come up with something that nice.

I'm with you man, 8 for the truck, 4 for the car, and 6 for the bikes. Thats a total gain of 90 HP

Anybody running a Topar case saver/sprocket guard know if it will accommodate a 16t cs with little to no modification?

No I'm talking about the slip way up on 4610 (the FS won't fix this one), past Squaw on the way to High Rock, a great loop for a DRZ

Hey guys,

Recently picked up a 07 DRZ400SM with 17,000 on it (now 18,000). Looks bone stock but well maintained.

I dunno if the past owner did the locktite fixes, waiting on the clutch side gasket which should be in Monday to do 'em all in one day.

Once those are done, where would you guys start as far as mods? I'm just asking for an opinion, I have a pretty good idea as to what's available. I'll be ordering a JD jet kit next week so I can get the 3x3 mod done. Thinking a MSR ProComp (the SSW seems to be too friggin' loud... Maine and their exhaust laws) and a K&N filter next. Would it be worth throwing in E/aftermarket cams next? Or should I grab a FCR MX 39 first?

Considering an Athena BBK since it's so cheap, but I really don't want to sacrifice the bulletproofness of the bike. Can I get away with a ProComp and not a SSW if I'm just doing the 440 and not stroking it or anything like that? Anyone have any issues on the reliability of the Athena kits?

And anyone have any news on the status of knobbies for 17s? It looks like everyone ends up running rears on the front, or has someone finally made suitable knobbies?

EMS - the Athena is way more 'spensive than the Cylinder Works big bore kit. From what I've read, it's not a wise use of your money to buy it over a less expensive kit.

However... It *is* your money, so spend it as you wish.

The FCR carb is a nice thing for immediate response to the twist. Open the airbox & exhaust and you may be pleased w/o changing the cams or displacement. If a tire-burning, wheel-standing sport bike is what you want, you should'a bought one instead of a DRZ.

Jon

Conti is making the TKC80 in 120/70/17 now but from what I hear they're impossible to get anywhere yet.
