OK, so I'm going to sound dumb now.


What purpose or gain would I get from a dyno check on the Pan?


What would I be able to use the information to improve on the bike?


I don't understand the whole process :scratch:

If you dyno tested your bike and found it say 20bhp less than what its surpossed to be, then you'd know there was a problem for example. Or you might have fitted a new exhaust and want to know if it has increased your BHP by 0.00000000000000005%. :lol:

You will also get a full rev-range readout pitting power against revs.


This can highlight flatspots and weak ranges which can in turn diagnose a carb/fuelling or intake problem.


Theres loads of uses, even if you dont perticularly want to tune your bike, or up your BHP.


Personally i'd love to get a readout done on my Gixxer 1100.


Its a standard 86' 1052cc block with a straight through exhaust/intake system and an ignition advancer. Cam shafts look new aswell. But i cant tell if they are simply replacement ones, or modified high lifters. The power delivery above 7-8000rpm is brutal and instant.


Would love to see what my power output is.


Standard list power is 128BHP. I can say it is DEFRINATELY making this. How much more i couldnt say.

Ideally...


the whole point of a dyno test is to tweak your bike. You would run it, then make you adjustment, re run it etc etc. Normally done when altering fuel maps.


A one of test like the above would just give a read out to take to the pub to show your mates really...


And don't forget, a dyno test show RWHP, not crankcase BHP like the manufactures' claims!!

LOL, Yeah, i remember in 2004 when the 10R came out, Kawasaki was claiming 170KG - 170BHP. I.e the first ever production sports bike with a 1:1 power to weight ratio.



Ahem.



My ar5e.

Well, apart from the recent and ongoing probs with smooth running which will be sorted on the 13th, Honda quotes 127bhp, or thereabouts.


Now, although she will pick her skirts up and run when asked, I am NEVER going to hit the buffers of the actual power output, let alone the stated bhp, so I reckon it won't be on my todo list, even though Tweeks is quite close to me.


Thanks for the info.
