Factory Pro and BMC  have produced the finest cleanable air filter for the VTR that is available. Manufactured to European standards -  High quality injection molded filter frame features integral breather plates, like the original filter. Actually, after seeing and using one of the BMC filters, I'm don't know why anyone would use any "other" aftermarket filter! Yes - we are the US BMC importers!

This kit requires a bit more work to install than the 1.0 or 1.1-ti ProKit. The advantage is that the kit will produce a bit more power at all rpms than any standard, drop-in style kit. Tuning is actually easier after the installation at base settings.
There is no loss of lowend power.
Although not tested, there's no good reason why the 1.7-RK Kit wouldn't be useable with a completely stock exhaust system with stock mufflers.
This is simply the best kit.
The BMC filter is the nicest air filter available for the VTR - it's one piece, instead of the other filter that is available, which is a multi-part, comparatively complex unit.
Use below listed the Ignition Advance for best mileage and performance -
Emulsion tube information
Also - as with ALL VTR1000's - the TPS must be checked and set to 500 +/- 10 ohms - or low speed cruise  smoothness is impossible to attain.
They have been seen as much as 900 ohms as delivered.

hi marc, your advice about the tps on the vtr was spot on. mine measured 919 ohms after taking it down to 509 ohms, its a different bike and returns 120 miles per tank as apposed to 90.
its running sweet.
thanks again - ps: your website is ace.

Hey guys,  been fighting a losing battle with my Dynojet needles for my Super Chicken.  Ordered your jet kit and it's like night and day!  Thanks for all your support.  I fabricated a true 2 into one exhaust....22 inch mid pipe with Hot Bodies Racing Growler canister, K&N air filter, NGK Iridiums..... running 50 pilots, 182/185 mains, needles on # 5 groove with 2 shims, set the TPS to 490 ohms and she runs like a raped ape!  Thanks again....you guys rock!

Titanium needles for lifetime use. Adds more low-end / midrange, if the proper main jet is selected, more top-end power. Easy to install and tune - no slide drilling. The Ti ProKit has the same needle profile as the 1.0 kit.
Works with a completely stock exhaust system, stock headers and full systems and has enough jets for the BMC air filter.

Improve MILEAGE!!!! (and power)
Our suggested standard advance rotor advances the timing 4 degrees. With stock engines with stock compression ratios, there is more power everywhere. Part throttle power is improved - helping corner exit speeds. Improved in-town drivability. .5-1.5hp top-end increase. The VTR's poor mileage is increased, also - as much as 10% under cruise conditions from reports back.

Works with or without a Carb Recal Kit - Works with stock and aftermarket exhaust.

Make shifting MUCH quicker and virtually eliminate missed shifts. Helps address missed shifts caused by poor shift detent "star" profile. MUCH more consistent shifting!
Not at liberty to disclose WHO used this kit on their F4's.........
Note! The H21 kit does not include a gasket for the F4i - You will need to supply your own clutch cover gasket.

User's comments

NOTE: Quickshifters must decrease shift kill time by aprox. 10ms.

Installation:
Remove right side clutch cover.
Remove clutch assembly (impact wrench and 30mm socket)
Install new EVO Shift STAR, Microbearing Detent Arm and and Factory Pro Detent Spring.
Reinstall clutch and cover. Sealant only - No gasket required
No case splitting required.

Estimated install: 1 hour, if you are super quick and have all the tools laid out.
1.5 - 2.5 hours at normal human speeds and what we would charge for in our shop.
3-4 hours if you are a "working hobbyist" and have impact and sockets.

Actual Screen on EC997 Eddy Current Dyno


This graph shows the difference between original ignition timing and our +4 Advance Rotor.
The +2 and +6 rotors, when used with Factory Pro #1.7-RK RaceKit, did not make the same improvements throughout the powerband.
The 1-2 True HP increases show part of the picture, but a big improvement in throttle response was realized, with more snap response evident at every rpm.

Results with the standard #1.0 or #1.1-TI Recalibration Kits should be similar.

(Remember, these HP numbers are True Rear Wheel HP Scale, measured on an EC997 Eddy Current Dyno, so they will be 12% to 18% lower than lightweight inertia dyno readings!)


Tech

General Technical Support  
            including emulsion tube location!

Throttle Position Sensor setting

  1. MUST be set at 490 ohms at idle setting

    1. Unplug from harness and measure sensor across 2 of the 3 leads.

      1. It's common to find them set at 800 to 900 ohms.

      2. If the TPS is not set correctly, idle and CRUISE quality will be poor / too rich.

      3. It may be necessary to remove the brass collar.

      4. Use 5mm x 12mm to replace torx bolts.

         

  2. Emulsion Tubes

    1. They are different - front to rear

      1. The rear one is leaner at cruise than the front (as delivered)

      vtr_emu2.jpg (16148 bytes)

    2. For persistent over richness at cruise, you can use another rear emulsion tube to lean out the front cylinder. The higher holes delay the onset of fuel delivery. Diagnosed by the need to have the front fuel screw almost closed for best idle - That's a superb test for pilot jet size.

    3. Best idle should be obtained between 1.5 and 3 turns out - if you have the correct size pilot jet and TPS adjusted to 500 ohms and you don't need a rear emu tube in the front - as some vtr's require -

 The advance plate has made a difference to mileage and throttle response, just like you said it would... It's so hard to find companies that produce a product that actually does what it says. Keep up the good work, I'm one happy customer so far.

Just a quick note to tell you what a fine job you do on R&D. I just installed a Ti kit in my 99 ZRX (Kerker slip-on, K&N filter, foam removed from snorkel throat, and trimmed side cover). 100 mains, e-clip on 3rd slot, and 2.5 turns on mixture screws. Pulls great from idle to redline using your recommended base settings. By the way my other 3 bikes (98 VTR, 97 Bandit 1200S, and 94 CB1000) have had the same results with your kits. I never even consider purchasing kits from you know who.

Thanks again for well researched products.

Hi,
 
 Just got a 1.1 Ti kit for my '98 Honda VTR1000. What are your recommended carb settings with a K&N filter and Sudco or Hindle slip-ons? Power is great where I have it. I never thought wheelies could be this easy!

But...idle fluctuates between 900-1400 rpm depending on heat of the engine, and sometimes it dies when coming to a stop. My current settings are:
 
 #50 slow jet
 182 main front
 185 main rear
 clips on 4th from top
 mixture screws 2.5 turns out
 
 I'm thinking I need to turn the mixture screws in about 1/2 turn. What do  you think?
 
 Thanks!

Hi Greg,
Try just adjusting the front cylinder fuel screw only for best possible idle. Once you've done that, adjust the rear cylinder fuel screw.
Don't fret if they are different.
Once you've done the best you can with this method, email settings. Sometimes, there's more that can be done - but you have to do the fuel screws first to diagnose!
There are NO absolute settings for EVERY vtr!
Cheers!
Marc

I installed a spark advancer, works great, doesn't seem to vibrate as much as before. Could be that my nerve sensors are gone. Anyway it sure runs great.
Needles are in the #5 pos. and #182 jet in front carb and #185 rear works great.
Thanks for all your help in the past.

Hey Guys, got a question, I have a Dynojet Stage 1 kit installed on my bike, I can't seem to get the thing tuned right, everyone recommends your kits, however, since my slides are already drilled will this be a problem switching to your kit?  I honestly know little about what drilling the slides does, or if it will be a problem, so before I buy your kit just wanted to know what the rundown was going to be..  Thanks Alot, Josh

Use 5 minute epoxy to seal the overlarge holes and a very sharp (aka: "new") drill bit to redrill them smaller.
