What can be done to make it fast

I may have mis-lead you, try the bender website I think its got the package. Still a good deal.

Exhaust: I would recommend seeing Maxximums web site, (Yamaha specialists) For $80.00 they will take your old can and gut it. Looks stock, only 4 dec. louder that stock and is a weight savings and a 5 hP difference in the low end. Unless you are going to Pipe it (not a fan of that myself) Its cheap HP in conjuction to all the other great recommendations you have got so far.

Transfer rods are your number one concern. Makes a huge difference, You'll be spinning out of the corners and never leaving the launch pad if you don't get the rods. Easy install too!

At the end of the day, you've got a decent sled, All the bolt ons recommended with give you lots of zip out of the hole and for the first 500 feet. You will not be the fastest 700 on top end by any means but this should get you out of the hole in a hurry. Not sure if you have any anti-stud laws in your area, would recommend 144 if you can do it.

I would take a guess you will not get much over 105MPH-110MPH on a good day. If you are looking for some more top end....back to the drawing board, sorry to say.

Let me know if you need any more info. I thrive on this crap!! I've done allot of research on the subject.
Easy, easy.....it's just a couple of dimes.

Stimp, Thanks for all the feed back, you guys are probably getting sick of hearing from me. But I still have a few more questions.
1. Does a stock 2001 sx 700r come with stock transfer rods? I was looking at and I think there already some on it. Does not look adjustable though, do I want the adjustables, will it make that big of a difference? I have already ordered the transfer rods from my local dealer, stay these or no?

2. Having my exhaust gutted is what you recommend, what if I were to go with and aftermarket silencer, what is the real difference? Money?

3. I have never messed around with clutches and all that, is it really that difficult, if you have a guide?

4. Tracks: If I were to go to 1" or 1.25" camoplast track would I have to change anything else or can I change the track straight up?

5. The intake spacers and boyessen reeds. How do you change these?

Thanks again for your help, I am learning as I go.

No Problem,
The stock transfer rods are just straight that bolt from the upper rail to lower rail. Aftermarket (adjustable) are various but they all are two piece with a sleave adjuster either knurled or two locking nuts...the can vary. They are real easy to install.

This goes for all of the anything that you buy from Hauck, Bender, etc. They all give you very specific intructions and diagrams how to install. Also you should check out Totallyamaha.com. There are soem excellent reviews about all the aftermarket pasts avialibile for your SX-R and a ton of tech tips with real good instructions. All the work recommended is very easy.

Clutching can be confusing at first but for example a stage 3 Hauck clutch kit come with a primary spring, a secondary spring and a helix, It is a 30 minute job at most, just follow the instructions given with your package. You will not need to get into "cams" or "rivet weights" unless you get into making heavier mods to pipes and engine. Once you do it once you'll see theres not much involved, they give you specs and set up instructions as well.

Exhaust: The aftermarket cans do not always fit properly, they tend to burn the heatpading and are noisey (my opinion) and for $2-300.00 I don't think they are worth the money.

On the track issue...Not sure about that, never been involved in a track change on this sled. I run studs. I am sure you can do a straight up track change.

Once again the reed spacers are easy, detailed intructions come with the kit.

You'll be an expert Yamaha Tech once you are done. Set aside an afternoon and you can probably do all the recomended changes

Keep me posted. Let me know if you need anything else.

As Stimp said, get the adjustable transfer rods. You'll want all the extra hook-up you can get.

My brother-in-law's exhaust looked completely stock after MaxPerf punched out the can. You can only tell something was done if you have it out (or by the sound, which was very nice). All they do is cut a hole in the side of it that will be hidden, clean it out, and weld it back together. Very neatly done!

1. Is that something I can do myself?

2. Can the dealeriship do that?

3. If not to the above what is the turnaround time and what is the cost?
