1190 Adv Dyno test power outputs. How does this compare to yours?

    I'm not sure if I should be disappointed with the measured power output of my 1190 Adv R that comes in with 127.3 HP, so to try and understand this I thought to start a thread and ask that when others test their bikes that power curves be posted so that we can see what is normal and what isn't.

    My bike is fitted with a long Wings pipe with the bung removed. Apart from this it's standard and running on 98 Octane unleaded from BP.

    Would love to know what other bikes are putting out just to check if mine is normal.

    As a brief explanation, the upper curve is the final power output after fault codes were cleared that the dealer said were caused by the optional KTM bad fuel dongle. I know a KTM part causing fault codes doesn't sound right, but the dealer insists this is the case.

    parasitic loss on a bike is somewhere between 15-20 percent....so your numbers look spot on...

    You may well be right but I think 20% is a lot of loss, especially when you look at most standard 1200 Multistrada's are testing between 135 - 145hp at the rear wheel. (There is a lot of test reports in the net)

    The only Dyno test I can find on an 1190 Adv R is showing 148hp. See below from Remus.

    Guess I'm a little worried that my bike's air box wasn't screwed together properly (ie. not sealed at all) and I have be riding it a bit in dust. Is sealed now with uni filters installed.

    So thought I'd ask what others have or will measure at the rear wheel just for a reference point, and figure if I need to be worried or not. If several others are sub 130hp, then I'll sleep easier.

    I do understand there are marked differences between dyno's and parasitics might be as high as 20%. There also will be differences in ambient temp, humidiy, pressure etc. But 150 published and 127 actual on a recently calibrated dyno is a fairly large loss.......

    Phil, was that with the bad fuel dongle plugged in?

    150 at crank and 127ish at the rear. Sounds correct and healthy.

    It is 15.5% on a bike not fully run in yet (that is a guess as I don't know how many kms you have). Sounds ok!
    Crank power should be 147.

    Green= Offroad
    Blue= Sport without dongle
    Red= Sport with dongle

    All runs were done with traction control off

    Wow thanks for posting that, Im very suprised that the power difference
    from 129.75 to 130.72 with Akra slip on is a 0.97 power gain .
    Considering the Akra is a $1,599 Aud price hardly seems the effort.
    Of course it looks great but you would think for that money it would give a bit more ...

    I was told that it actually lost a bit of power when it was put on. They made some adjustments (I'm not sure what they are able to do) to bring it up a bit.
