    Did the Dyno operator provide the settings information of SAE or STD and smoothing ? That information is important and normally on the screen but it's missing from the chart.

    Powertronic is likely a necessity for the cam and/or the 477?

    The 477 kit seems nice, but I don't know about taking a dremel to the head :s

    Im pretty sure its not the only thing missing, I wouldnt take it but with a pinch of Salt. But the Same Bike has been on the Same Dyno now many times and the weather has cahnged etc but he does his checks and balances. ( my AFR readings are about .5 to 1 out to his ! )What I get is what I pay for pressumably and as I never did the standard Bike I can only go on the Numbers he supplies, But as they go up, mostly I am convinced I have Gained power.
    I beleive its SAE, as Ive has STD's before and didnt enjoy them .:rofl

    There’s a reason every picture of a dyno room has a big assed fan in it.

    I can't remember getting married and I have no head injury. I think that I have blocked it out. I just remember it being stressful. Grooms are just window dressing anyway. ;-)

    You young whippersnappers and your new-fangled technology! In my day we’d just use Krylon!

    Now get offa my lawn!

    (Actually, there’s something tempting about the idea of doing a red-to-black fade paint job on the head pipe... where’d I put that VHT...?)

    Main thing I remember about mine is being a half hour late because I was stuck in a broken elevator at the hotel. Had to be gotten out by the fire department. Hard to forget that.

    Does it do throttle wheelies? I remember my XT did those pretty easily.

    My Dyno results are questionable! to say the Least.
    I would be the first to agree, but not having much else published that is RWHP and never Charting a 411 on this particular Dyno I can only go with the Ups and downs I've got.
    Apparently some have got 20 ish RWHP ( relates well to the Manufactures Claim of BHP with the loss thru the transmission being 4 to 5 HP) so 20 equals 25! (ish).
    My first Dyno chart posted here with an 80mm piston, showed 26 ish ( do we add 4 or 5 here? ). 30% up on other imaginary figures.
    It was running a 462 (Powertronics) map and it was high compression( Too High )and in the process of trying to get it leaner I killed it, died on a Highway overpass( but cooled down and got me home), so I ran Sams old 462 Rebore that he tried to kill and didnt succeed, while I waited for the 477 to arrive and it did but it was as damaged so I waited again ( fkn Pandemic) anyhow since installing the Barrel from Rishikesh or wherever it came from I have suceeded in getting to 31 RWHP and by my my Calculations that is 50% more than a standard Himma:happay, so Give or Take a few percent for the fact that we spin different downunder, I recon Big is Better:kat.

    That is another thing like. life expectancy that I didn't take into account, but I expect that with the O2 switched on and running at 13.6 to 1 that it would use a bit more fuel than it should but cooler and more responsive.
    I'll try to do a longer run.

    Thanks, again. You're right about my commute too.
    I'm hoping to fit a 16T for my trip to Spain in 4 weeks, so I'll just have to be a bit quicker shifting gear.

    Got tired of my side stand sinking without a trace in soft asphalt, campgrounds, and anything less solid that steel (it’s been hot round here).

    lil scrap of mild steel, some brazing rod, viola!

    paint after it cools.
