You can tell it's faked. You can't get that far on one tank of gas.

I found it interesting in how he mounted the bike. Start the engine, kick up the stand, then hop on the bike. Might be vertically challenged (no offense to anyone) I just found it interesting.

Someone needs their dyno checked. All three make around 95hp.

A good friend of mine has the HM S model with the full Termi exhaust. My bike still walks away from him with ease. My bike is completely stock. So yes, mine makes more than 95 hp because his HM was dynoed in at 90+ hp after all the mods. Oh, and I also weigh 40 pounds more than him...

I looked around and checked dyno charts, they all made around 95 HP with +/- 3hp variance between charts.

Final hp numbers vary between dynos of different brands and models. Correction factors used in arriving at the numbers also affect final numbers. What I thought you meant originally was that they all make around 95 hp. "Around" to me is +/- 3 or so hp. 80 hp and 101 hp are not nearly the same. I've seen numbers for MM anywhere from 100 to 110 peak hp. If yours made only 95 peak hp, then all the other dynos around are poorly calibrated, are using an inaccurate correction factor, or all the other MM dyno charts came from modified bikes, or your bike might be out of tune. I would tend to assume that if yours was tested on the same day at roughly the same time as other MM's, it would produce similar numbers to other MMs.
With a stock exhaust, mine made 101 hp and made 105 hp with a good fuel map, at the rear wheel. Those numbers would be reasonable compared to factory specs of 115 hp at the crank.

So I'm trying to understand the "all make around 95 hp" but your bike still runs away with ease. It would make sense then that they all don't make around 95 hp unless your "around" is, once again, +/- 10 or more hp.

15 hp is a lot and 15 lb/ft of torque is also A LOT of difference in a 400 lb bike.

Let's not forget the torque factor here. Regardless of HP when you first twist the wrist it's the torque that gives you the shove.

Coming out of turns I could easily out pull a 600cc sport bike because I had way more torque. Had the run been longer they would have caught up because they had more HP.

Anybody install a power commander their MM. Im looking to get one to compliment my Akra exhaust system. Any info regarding who makes them and where to get them would be appreciated. I'm not looking to completely rework the fuel map, I just want to have a basic setup for a header/aftermarket exhaust sans cat. Thanks in advance.

Curious if anyone has ridden the MM back-to-back with a GS. I'd like to know some impressions about the MM gearbox.

Does it seem more refined, tighter? What about dropped shifts? Just looking for some comparisons and impressions.

The gearbox is an improvement over the other gs boxes I've tried. I've owned a 04' GS, 07' GS and 07' GSA. No dropped shifts for me, but then I can't recall any on my previous GS'es either. The MM shift simply feel more positive :-)

Definitely a much better box then my 05 GS. much eaiser to find neutral, shifts very crisp for a The MM will turn higher RPMs in any given. gear than the GS. I find myself the next higher gear in the MM compared to the GS in many situations.

Question MM fly screen

Happy new year all
I am trying to get one of these manufactured as the person(s) are not contactable who made this one.




I have been in contact with a company in the UK that said they can make them with some help. The biggest step is getting a mold made up of what I want, (something very close to this). I am investigating if I can make the mold myself then send it to them for manufacturing only. But if that is not possible then they will make the mold. For them to do this I need a UK volunteer that would be willing to take their MM to the company for measuring/mold making. I'll confirm what is involved first of course .
The company is based in Stokesly, Cleveland. Is that near anybody?

The next thing to ask of course is....
who would be interested in having one of these? the more people the cheaper it gets and if I can make my own mold it should be cheaper still. In any case I am hoping to keep the price to around 200 pounds but certainly under 300 but that is all guess work at this stage.

any interest?
cheers
