Ive played with ignition on my second gen and picked up a 2hp with an ignition module. Theres been a few post about it if you wanna try a search.
(in good humor) and focused more on the initial post -
Just remember what I meant in that R6 forum post -
1; On the IGN module - on an R6, "10" means 2 to 3 degrees. (proof: you can't change the timing 10 degrees and only have a 1% or 2% power change).
2. I MEANT to emphasize that you NEED to do IGN testing under LOAD - in Steady State - in order to get the engine's combustion chamber MATERIAL temperature to a realistic real world values.
A 7 to 8 second sweep test is totally un real world cold.
What works best in a cold combustion chamber isn't likely to be what works best in the hotter chamber, real world.
The reason why we started making EC997 dynamometers in the first place is because the "optimal" settings for a dynojet dyno run - did not equal what worked best in the real world - It's still that way - and a careful tuner will say that.
Most of the better dynojet tuners fiddle with the AFR values to get better street and track running.
3. When quoting me about tuning, dynos and bikes, be aware that I tend to qualify my statements fairly well.
When quoting me about music and movie reviews.... "not so much".....
If I "know" how a dj IGN module works on an R6, that's what I'll usually write.
It doesn't mean that I know how that module works on a zx10 or any other bike.
If I make a blanket statement, it's because I've seen it over and over and I've probably talked about it with other good tuners, too.
That being said, there are positive benefits to changing ignition timing and, for best real world results, I suggest that any ign settings be done under load, like on an EC997 or similar "low-inertia" brake dyno..
