I don't think there is any real difference in the head, definately not in teh combustion chamber itself. But, the YZF intake ports are oval-ish, at least at the upstream end..which makes them larger, which in my opinion is detrimental to intake velocity.

from about when the first gen YZFs came out until about 2004, 600 intake ports got smaller and smaller(volume) and yet power went up. This tells me the manu's got seriously interested in charge velocity vs. raw flow....they haven't gone back to the large volume paradigm...tells me velocity is more important than huge static flow rates.


Would a port and polish bring the fzr up to the yzf head? Or does the ovalish shapes out do the fzr no matter what? Continuing that line of thinking, would a port and polished yzf head be too much static flow and not enough volocity?

Static flow helps max power, IF your engine is capable of drawing in that much air in a single gulp. Like RR said, most 80s-90s intake tracts were oversized, killing velocity and seriously hurting mid-range and even top-end power. Also, the intake tract should be a little rough, to enhance turbulence and improve mixing of the charge. Polished intakes reduce turbulence enormously, leading to puddling and uncontrolled charge stratification (rich and lean zones). Polish your exhaust, by all means - it reduces heat transfer (reduced surface area) to the head and reduces coking. Leave the intake rough.

i have both the YZF head and my factory head which would be better to use. i am just now seeing the difference in intake ports which would be great going for FI but not going to do that so..would the smaller intake ports on the factory head be better for this build. but if i do that i would need to modify the yzf head gasket right?

Any decent automotive machine shop will have a rod hone.

The one I used uses a rod hone that indexes off the big end so that the small end is perfectly aligned with it. And 'reads' the pin for sizing. They need to take approximatley .018" out radially to fit the YZF pins.


i took my rods and pins to a machine shop in florida and they said that .0400 had to come out. that they couldnt do it and they refered me to some one that could but i am looking at anywhere from 80-150 a rod to have it done. any advice? also with the valve lifters, tappets, buckets or whatever you know them as. they sit between the cam and the valve. can you use FZR's on the YZF head?

Should be a fine setup, take your time and get the carbs right

I THINK im running 125 mains,
