I'm not worried. Like I said befor all dynos give will give out a different reading. I'm sure there is an explaination for the low numbers. And I doubt a beemer will get more on that same dyno.

God I don't know why people are so stuck on individual dyno #'s?????? The same bike/car will make five different sets of #'s on five different dyno's lmao!!!! A dyno run is only a tool that gives us data thats used as a benchmark or baseline point.

I can care less about dyno numbers cause the real numbers are the ones at the track! I didnt want to say this but my friend was at the track (ROAD RACING) this last weekend and they were testing the new Zx10r 2011 and it went one second faster than the superbike yamaha R1 this was done on a stock bike with race tires only!! I also heard it's gonna be easy to by pass the restrictions.

Agreed!

Lets say the HP is only marginally higher than the GEN III. The GEN IV in stock trim is 22lbs lighter than the gen III and 15 lbs lighter than the BMW and add the fact that it handles better than the GEN III a bike that won a few track shootouts and you have a winner.

HONDA CBR kicks butt with less HP because of handling.

GEN IV is a zx/cbr:eek:ccasion1

My 1st-gen ZX10R did 142 hp bone stock on a dyno that's calibrated to be as close as could be achieved to the Parts Canada Superbike dyno - an "honest" number as opposed to an "inflated" number.

The number doesn't matter unless you compare to something else measured on the same dyno under the same conditions. Suppose that 164 hp was measured on the same dyno where mine was done. That's a healthy increase.

I ain't concerned about it.

It still rocks! :rockwoot: I bet a romp down any given track on - lets say - a euro spec one and the old butt dyno will tell a different tale! Not too concerned about by-passing restrictions at the moment - I just want a chance to dry hump one - and soon! :leghump:

you guys are sweating this bike way too much.. half of you arent even getting it, so why worry about it! Keep the bike u have, make it lighter, add more go fast parts. Oh and go on a diet cuz your fat! it'll help you win a race.

I happen to have a Ti Arrow exhaust system and like it very much. However, the '11 10R is a comletely different bike and maybe Arrow just missed the boat on how to make their exhaust work. Cuz as far as I know, the Leo Vince system has been with the 4th Gen since day 1 and so far it make the most power from all the articles I've read and videos I've seen. For this bike Leo Vince looks like the best choice... so far. :mrgreen: The Pat Clark Motorsports team claims 170 base and 188 w/ kit ecu and full LV system. Look the video up on RoadracingWorld.com. Good stuff.
