i hear alot of guys putting a 900rr engine in the f3 frame with some new engine mounts and small modding.
that engine adds 30hp and is probably easier and cheaper than rebuilding a stronger carb 600cc.

if you want EFI, i suggest selling your f3 or buying a newer 600cc, although even the 600RR is going to be beat by bigger liter bikes.
All the jazz down here are zx9/10/12r's and they all GO.

Nitrous is expensive, requires extensive timing knowledge and such to make sure you dont blow your engine
Even turbos are (many times) wayy too expensive to put on a 600cc bike. (that and the front wheel never sits)

i would not recommend spending any money on an f3 more than repairs and cosmetics mainly because they arent worth as much as you put in (AKA spending $2,500 in parts to put on a $2,000 bike)

there's always going to be someone with a bigger, faster, more expensive bike.

yea i am on a 1/8 dirt drag at a place called slades park in surry, va ....
i appreciate all the help... i hear that guys buying bikes that have a salvage title and all does anyone know how i would find out who is selling salvaged bikes.. yea the bike seems fast if the other guys wasnt running nitrous it would almost be a close race... jus thought if i did all motor upgrades and added nitrious i could do something..maybe i will be looking into getting a different bike and doing all of this....thanks again
