Fella's, dyno figures need to be taken in context first make sure the Dyno you go to has an operator that knows what he is doing.
Second find out when the Dyno was last calibrated, does the Dyno have a ram air system? What were the weather conditions at the time air temp humidity ect.
All these things have a huge bearing on the final figure, the guy that works on my bike runs the Suzuki race team in Australia and really knows his stuff.
He has a brandnew Dynojet Dyno that consistently reads lower than any other Dyno around so all reading are conservative corrected SAE rear wall HP.
Stock reading no [email protected]
after a pipe and filter slight carby mods still very rich on [email protected]
Another interesting matter is the speedo and tacho both read high at 250kmh indicated actual speed 228kmh at readline 12500rpm actual 12000 these figure taken on dyno runs.
Engine noise, had the same from new and complained, told this was normal but the noise fades as the temperature reaches about 50+ c, funny how Kawasaki say they went to linerless plated bores for tighter clearances and a quieter engine?
But all things considered still a great bike to ride!
