the K&N pods you want are;
K&N RC-0984 Universal Chrome Filter
2-1/8"Flg,3" X 4"B,2-3/4"H

yes, $135
I thought the same thing, stage 1 vs. 3 but, because of the huge change with the pods and the any change to the exhaust stage 1 does nothing. I would be careful on using ZRX parts. heck the ninja exhaust will work too and are a little larger and would retain a stock look. Didn't someone do that last year, guys?

Subject: GPZ Intake and Exhaust Mods

I have been considering intake and exhaust options. I came across this page on the muzzy site, , showing the effects of different mods on a zrx 1100. It's my understanding the gpz and zrx motors are very similar.
There isn't much difference in power between the stage 1 and stage 3. I would like to stay with the stage 1 but would like to replace the stock air filter with a K&N. The air filter is tiny, only about 2/3rds the size of the filter in my old Ninja. K&N doesn't list an air filter for the GPZ, anyone know of a compatible K&N part #?
If I did decide to go to a stage 3 would I need to buy the reed block off plates? Is there anything else that would need to blocked off or disabled?
Unless I find a really good price on a used exhaust system I will probably buy the v&h supersport. It fits my budget and is the only black pipe I have been able to find. Does anyone know of any dyno charts for the v&h pipe? Or any other pipe and jetting combos? 
Also I have seen a couple sites recommending changing out the plastic radiator fan for an aluminum aftermarket one, is it really necessary?
