08-09 ZX10R RWHP Results help...

Hi guys, just had my bike dyno'd the other day and I have a couple of questions.

My bike is fitted with a Akrapovic Slip-on with Link-pipe and a PCV. At the star of the dyno I was running 156rwhp and after being remapped I got 162rwhp. Spoke to some mechanics at the Kawasaki service centre and they seem to think I should have been in the mid 170's atleast.

Just want to know if these results seem right or should I have gotten more?

What have you guys gotten from your bikes and what mods have you done to get the best results.

And what can I do to get into the 170's?

Cheers
Sutto

All dyno's read differently. If it is faster than it was before the dyno then the job was done (if the power is higher then you're good). A dyno is a tuning TOOL not a measuring stick.

All dyno's will read differently. The dyno you were on 162, go to another and it may say 172 or 152. They should just be used as a tuning tool, or you will just get wrapped up in the #'s game. Take your bike to the track to more accurately find your performance #'s

Dude those numbers seem solid, EVERY DYNO IS DIFFERENT...Could also be differences between SAE and STD. But they seem good...


Best thing I say after a good tune is...DOES IT FEEL BETTER? Power?Throttle response, over all feel? If it does who cares about numbers.
