You contradicted yourself in the same post. You dyno'd your bike on 2 different dyno's with 2 totally different setups (strapped and not) but then state it's best to use the same dyno for consistency. Strapping your bike down will not be worth 13whp even on the same dyno.

The 6r has some work not alot but it's in the right places being completely redone front suspension(piston kit, spring, etc...) brembo rcs mc and ss lines. It'll become a race bike next year, with a few more things as it's going to go down again. It's a tough ass bike.

I can't photoshop it with gold wheels and unfortunately. I'm either going to go with BST wheels or the new marchesini's in gold

With respect mate, I did not contradict myself I was merely backing up what I already knew, which is if you are doing work on your bike it's advisable to use the same dyno/operator for consistency, and I stand by that.

Both Dyno's that my bike were put on were exactly the same model, and no work had been done to the bike between runs on both Dyno's, the run on the second Dyno (not strapped down) was done (for free) because the owner of that Dyno did not believe the figures from the original runs on the Dyno where the work was done, the runs on the second Dyno was only a power run.

Additionally, as for the difference in readings between Dyno's the figures speak for themselves, apparently it is fairly common that this method is used by some operators to manipulate figures. Not my words but the words of the guy who owned the second Dyno.

All I can suggest is that if you are sceptical, you could always take your bike to an operator put your bike on thier Dyno and get them to run your bike using both methods and see the results for yourself.

And finally when I fit my new full system to my bike, it will be going back to the same operator that did the original work for consistency, so no contradiction there then.

Firstly- Bike looks great!

Did it come clear coated from OPP? they make nice fitting bodywork, when I bought mine many years ago it did not come with clear coating....After clear coating the weight savings over OEM (GSXR-1000) was not that much. This was a disappointing and CF needs a clear coating when exposed to the sun, IMHO enchances the beauty of cf.

Now someone racing, looking for the lightest option prolly would care less but the general consumer maybe not will have the same opinion

The biggest weight savings in aftermarket bodywork is the gas tank. add up all the rest the combined weight savings total is do not equal what the gas tank savings would be ( greater than 8lbs) I had a nightmare with a different companies gas tank delaminating.

Additinally seems in my case the OEM body work absorbed the engine sounds much better. Not an issue once you know this but if you do not, well that can make for some panic attacks!

Just some insight for those that maybe like me was not aware of. I do regret dealing with OPP and will leave at that.

The next bike purchase would be hard for (me) to justify the expense vs weight savings
