So, I've decided to do a detailed write up / tutorial on the jumper mod. I know its been covered, but I had to go through quite a few different tutorials online until I found the info I was looking for. This tutorial is for people with absolutely NO experience with doing modifications, so many of you may find some steps redundant. I'm just covering all the bases here. This mod only works with the 05-08 ZX6R and is said to give an extra 6-12 HP.. best part, is this mod is absolutely free! So here we go.

Only tools you will need: #5 Allan Key (simply for side fairing / seat removal)



Remove Side Fairings



Remove Seat



Your ECU will be wrapped in electrical tape onto a larger wire. Remove the electrical tape to get at the ECU.





Simply remove the top cap to uncover the connectors



For this step, you need a piece of wire. Some people use paper clips with rubber coating, some people use guitar strings. I used a piece of copper wire and stripped each end to uncover the wire which will be slotted into the connectors.



This step is optional, but I soldered the copper wire to prevent it from unraveling.



Shape it into something that looks like this.



This is the most important step to get correct. You will be using this wire to bridge the Yellow/Black wire to the Aqua/Green Wire. Simply find the wires and its correlating connection. Slide the copper wire in. I had to flatten my wire a bit with tweezers as the slot was quite small.



Put the cap back on, and you're good to go! Free Horsepower! :pirate

For all US models, the 05-08 ZX6R were toned back in power after 13,000 rpm to meet the stricter US emissions standards. This mod bypasses that to you actually keep climbing in power in its "power zone" like it should! It sets it to EU standards. It's well worth doing! very easy, and gives you a heck of alot more pull after 13,000 rpm. So yes, all top end.

You can use a paper clip or even a guitar string, as long as its bridging the 2 connectors! I just prefer copper as it doesn't heat up as much as other metals.

One strand out of a piece of telephone wire works good too. It's the perfect size to stick into the connector, and is solid so it won't unwind like stranded wire. And it's copper.

Yea but thats why he soldered it so it won't unwind. Not to mention That hole is so small it would take some really skilled vibrations and bad luck for that to not only come undone and out

You do put the cap back on so it can't come out.
