I was just wondering if anyone knew the average hp a tls is putting out at the rear wheel. My buddy just had his 2k1 TL1000S dynoed at 105hp at the rear wheel and he thinks the machine is wrong. Two days previous i had my ZX-9 Dynoed on the same machine at 135hp at the rear wheel. he thinks his tls should be around 112 to 114 in stock form, b/c he wants to to get it over 130 with a bunch of mods. If anyone has any input to clarify a typical tls dyno I would appreciate it. Thanks.

My TLS stock was in the 115HP range and with a pipe, K&N filter, and a speed tune, a dial to trick the bike into thinking it was colder then what it was to put more fuel to it (adjust on the fly) I was able to get it to the 120HP range. Don't forget the ram air system should also give you about 5-10HP added to your dyno run. To me 105HP seems a bit low but the dyno set-up could be part of it and the bike could be part of it. When you figure your only 10HP off of what mine was I don't think that is to bad. Try to find another dyno so you have something to see if it is the bike or the dyno. By the way I sold my TLS and bought my Busa in 2000 and the TLS was a green 98.

My buddies bike (the TLS) just hit a 1000 miles and I kind of think he hasn't run it too hard yet. So I bet you are probably right that it isn't run in yet. Thanks for your replies.

By the way how much more do you think I would get out of my ZX-9 if I put a K+N Filter and jet kit on it? Provided it will be tuned to optimal output with the free use of a dyno.

Javelin, maybe this applies to the 2001 TLS, maybe not, but Motorcycle.com had this to say when comparing the '97 TLS to the '98 TLS:

"This year (98), they de-tuned the motor as well: The EFI map was reprogrammed to calm down low-end throttle response. We measured only 108 hp compared to 114 hp for last year pre-production unit."

Dyno results....

When I did my dyno run(about 3 weeks ago) I was having issues with my Nitrous setup....apparently my bike was running on one cylinder after 9,000 rpm's......When it went on the dyno something happened and all returned to normal. My peak hp was at 138.9 hp to the rear wheel. That was without nitrous because I never had it dynoed with my mods....Which are: Full yoshimura rs-3 titanium exhaust system, K&N cone filters(removed Airbox) Dymag wheels, ohlins suspension and steering damper,ported and polished stock heads and zymol wax:D :rolleyes:

With bigger Nitrous jets to come!!
:eek:

105 is probably about right. Most mags put the recent TLS at 106hp. That's down a few on the earlier models. I have a 97 TLS with slip-ons and a K&N and it does 114. You can probably get a little more with a Dynojet FI remap. Also, I think a full system will pull a couple more HPs than slip-ons, given that the stock pipe is crimped down pretty tight to clear the chain on the left pipe.

Honestly, to me it's not the absolute amount of the HP, it's the sound and delivery of the v-twin that gets me every time I twist the throttle.
