FAQ: Kawasaki: ZX-14R (2006-2017)

  1. You offer big bore kits for the Hayabusa, but do you offer one for the zx14 or anything that would increase its displacement?

  3. Will your CT Dual Full System fit on a Kawasaki ZX-14 that has a 240 rear wheel kit?
  4. Where can I find a full exhaust system (race) with two canisters? How much do they cost? My motorcycle is Kawasaki ZZR 1400 (=ZX-14R), year 2007.
  5. What is the HP gain from adding your dual slip-ons to a stock ZX-14 with the flies out?
  6. What does the Brock’s PClll programer do for the ZX14 2006. What kind of performance will I get out of it. Does it enhance the power of the bike?

  8. What are the differences between 2006 and 2008 Alien Head slip-ons for a Kawasaki ZX-14?

  10. Is it hard to install an auto shifter on a zx14? Can I do it myself or do I need to take it to a shop for installing?
  11. If I don’t want to put your exhaust and pc5 on my ZX-14R at this time, can I still flash the ecu on the stock bike to get rid of the safe mode and increase the max rpm etc.?
  12. I’m from France and was interested in your ECU reflash for the ZX-14R. I’ve heard the keys are coded with the ECU. If I get the ECU reflash, will I have to reprogram the keys to my bike?
  13. I’m considering whether to buy a CT Megaphone Full System 17″ Muffler ZX-14 (06-12). The reason I’m considering is because of the oil plug and oil filter. Is it necessary to take off the muffler when I change the oil and filter? If there isn’t a problem I would buy this exhaust system(Brock’s mufflers are very cool).
  14. I want the loudest and best performance exhaust for my 2012 ZX-14R. Should I select the Alien Head 2 in 14″ or 20″?
  15. I purchased a set of your heavy duty clutch springs. Since there are only 5 springs is it possible to only use say 2 or 3 heavy ones with the others remaining stock. Will this jeopardize the feel or operation of the clutch?

  17. I installed my new CT series exhaust on my ZX-14R and the studs on the head do not engage enough of the nut to even be flush when torqued to 10ft/lbs.
  18. I have an 08 ZX-14 with a ShortMeg, secondaries removed, tre, BMC race air filter, and a PC5 with Brock’s map. My question is will a Brock’s flashed ECU help me pick up more power?
  19. I have a zx14 with a smeg, no flies, no filter, and your track map. Will I gain anything from removing the baffle and would I need to change maps?
  20. I have a ZX14 that I want to put a sidewinder on, but first I have a few questions: Do you need a cut oil pan? Can you remove the oil filter without removing the pipe? Do you have to remove your oil cooler? Is the rear brake usable after install?
  21. have a 2013 ZX14-R. I’m wanting to buy your dual CT full titanium system with PC V. I always ride on the street, & would use pump gas; 92/93 octane. With no other modifications, what kind of performance can I expect to gain? Thank you.
  22. I have a 2013 1400R, is it best to put a short exhaust on or long to increase power?
  23. I have a 2012 ZX-14R and I’m trying to decide between the CT dual and the Alien Head 2 exhaust. My bike is a street bike that will spend 90% of its time on the drag strip. I like the look of the CT dual and I know the Alien Head is very lightweight. How do they compare with power/weight? What are your thoughts?
  24. I have a 2012 ZX-14R and I removed the secondary flies. The bike wants to “buck” when decelerating and approaching a stop. Could the flies being removed cause this?
  25. I have a 2009 ZX-14 and I recently installed a 40 shot nitrous kit for track use. I’m looking for advice on strengthening the clutch. How much stiffer is the clutch with each of your spacers? What set up would you recommend for my use?
  26. I have a 2007 zx14. The clutch chatters horrible when I launch it at the track. I see you make a kit for the 2012, any suggestions for my 07?
  27. I have a 2007 ZX14 with a full alien head exhaust, K&N air filter, PCIII power commander, and the Guhl flash ECU. Will it benefit me in HP gain and top speed to pull the secondary flies or does it matter with the Guhl flash ECU? Also is there a better air filter out there than the K&N?
  28. I have a 2006 ZX-14 and I’m installing a 240 wide tire kit that’s extended 6 inches. Do you have an exhaust that will fit?
  29. I am trying to change my front sprocket from 17 to 16 teeth but can’t seem to find the right size socket to get that nut off. Also, it seems to be super tight. I tried putting a little heat on it to loosen any locktight that might be there. do you have any tips? Thanks.
  30. How much clearance from the oil drain plug to the ground should I have on the ZX-14s while racing? How about on the street?

  33. Do you have or recommend a ZX-14 smog valve removal kit that helps my bike’s performance? I have a full Brock system, Power Commander, BMC filter, and secondary plates removed.
  34. Do I run my AF sensor in the new Alien Head II system or no? I am installing a Brocks tuned PcV with the exhaust
  35. Do I need to remove the flies on my 2008-09 ZX-14 for maximum performance? I read on the Internet that the flies are opened at the same rate as adding a TRE 008 to the earlier model ZX 14’s, so there is no reason to bother removing the flies?
  36. Considering your Guhl/Brocks ECU street flash for my 2012 ZX-14r. Bike is all stock. Do I need to map it for the ECU reflash?
  37. Can you use the KTRC (traction control) on the ZX-14R and/or ZX-10R even if you attach a Power Commander V (PCV)?
  38. After installing my new exhaust system, my ZX-14 overheats/spits antifreeze on to the ground when I turn off the engine. I removed the radiator during the install, but put everything back the way it was. Any idea what could cause this?
  39. My Bike is stuttering when I cruise around 3000 to 5000rpm
  40. Do you have a gear ratio calculator?
  41. Do you have BSTs for a 2013 Kawasaki ZX-14R with ABS/KTRC? Will the BST hubs come machined and ready to use all the ABS/KTRC components (sensor rings, etc.)?
  42. The Speedo Healer for my 2008 Hayabusa didn’t work around the stock speed limiter. The product is installed and working properly as far as I can tell. I can program in different % offsets and the speedo reacts like it should, but the bike ran 180MPH in 6th gear on the dyno and signed off.
