Old rider...new member..PC V map questions..dyno

Hey guys,

Im fairly new here. Though I've read dozens of posts, I've written little. I have a 2008 zx-10r with a few mods, including a PC V...I understand that all dyno's run different numbers relatively. I recently took my bike to Spectrum motorsports Ducatti dealer because its the only dyno I know of around my area.. Installed prior an Area P exhaust, k&n, block off plates, and a pc v (with a slip-on map loaded, synthetic oil, newer sparkplugs, serviced regularly...They wouldnt allow me to watch the dyno run..I didn't even hear my bike running..a few minutes later they brought my bike back out and handed me a paper graph, which claimed 154.98hp...I was surprised to say the least..they claimed they could custom make a map that would be better than my generic slip-on map by "ten-fold"..this all seemed a little shady...I noticed a huge diff when i put on my exhaust alone..then an even cleaner, smoother, stronger bike when i had the 8k service with k&n air filter change and pc V installed, smog block-off...is it likely that this 154.98hp figure is real?? Does anyone have a map that would be better for my setup.. Thanks for any help in advance.

I'm no expert but custom map is always better. The 154 is a number I have seen for a "STOCK" 08 zx10. When compared to other liter bikes it was still more than the other japanese bikes.

Your mods you should be closer to 165HP at the wheel.

154 is a lot of WHP but you should be easy into the 160HP range.

Stock numbers for GEN III I have seen from 154 to 170 so there ya go...


Nice mods and nice bike

Area p told me that the akra full exhaust map would probably work better than the Jardine slipon map I'm currently using.

The dyno is for comparing changes you made...You should have dyno'd the bike stock then made the changes so you can see the difference in power. The 154 does not seem out of line.

That sounds reasonable..I agree with you I should have done it before to compare..at the same time it seems as though it should be a higher number based on all the stock and aftermarketed zx10 gen 3's that I've seen. All in all the numbers don't really matter, the power to me is ungodly..more than suffient..but does anyone know this exhaust that has mapping advice?

Some dyno's read low, some read high. You could ask him how it compared to other litre bikes that he has dyno'd recently. I had the same question when i first bought my Gen 1 last year. Bike dyno'd 145. I'm thinking, wow, that is way under what i expected. Ask him about the last sport bike he dyno'd. Said it was an older Busa and squeaked out a whole 146 hp. Like Quick10 posted, its more of a comparison tool.
