Guess my bike sucks compared to other numbers I've seen thrown around:
Or, if the R6 should have been 115, that would make the dyno about 13.1% low which would make mine around 190.9HP if it was also reading 13.1% low. But the question is what's the "right number"? I don't think that's actually an important question though. The real question is what is the % of change from one run to another after making a change in the exact same conditions. A number from a single run on a dyno is fairly meaningless. The important thing for me is translating it into larger size trophies and to be honest a higher number doesn't necessarily translate to larger trophies. There is one track that I am just as fast at on my old beat up ZX6R (small tight track). But again, knowing that a single run doesn't really mean much it was just for amusement. It was a bit like swinging the hammer at the fair and trying to ring the bell.Like you said i reckon its just the dyno.
The R6 should have been around 115hp off my head. So lets say its off by the same margin that makes yours around 184.5 which is 1hp less than mine had last week with essentially same mods.
Holy crap! Didn't think about that, and that could very well be where a few HP were lost! It's a duh moment now that I think about it. Yeah, race slicks, cold, right out of the trailer. Probably around 21 psi. Son of a....Another thing to consider, I've heard that tire selection and pressure both have a major effect on the readout. Supposedly slicks and anything less than maximum pressure (regardless of slick versus street) eat up a lot of power. Was the bike dyno'd with a track tire? What was the pressure? I'm just speculating here, I'm not an expert by any means.
Yeah I saw the signature picture with the race plastics, yellow number plates, thought :idea: "dude probably runs a big ol' 190/60 slick with 20lbs of air in it" I feel kinda smart now! :crackup:Holy crap!
