gco, if you dynoed at two jacks, they should have a stock 98 gsxr run in the computer to compare it to. magazine usually won't give the same #. 131 is a good number for 2 jack's dyno for a gsxr750. several more than my stock 00 750

does anyone know where i can get the past shootouts from 98'??? im also looking to see what the horseys my bike came with because i just put it on a dyno (131 hp) and i want to see what it came with, to see if these mods i made had any effect on it
Trying is the first step towards failure.

The clutch, rear-sets, brake lines and cosmetic changes must account for at least 10HP!

I'd also recommend drilling holes in the fairing ala the 900RRs. I covered mine with tape once and lost a good 15 mph on the top.
I don't see how taping the holes would have that effect. The holes are drilled to reduce sprung weight, and have nothing to do with aerodynamics. Was it really heavy tape?

Duct tape of course. I went through a phase where I wanted to change the color of my bike about once a week so I'd just cover the thing with duct tape that way I could paint it whatever color I wanted that day then just peel it off when I got tired of it.

Honda drilled the holes in the fairing to ease air pressure at those points. Theoretically this made the bike easier to turn. One advantage of being older is that you don't have to guess about the history of things, because you were there!
If you look in the back of some of your magazines, you'll see a small ad for Ian Smith Motorcycle Information. For like 10 bucks, they'll send you a spiral bound compilation regarding whatever bike you choose. It's all black and white, but it will include all the reviews, comparos, and ads for that bike. I got one for my '87 Hurricane and was surprised at how thorough it was. Not to mention it showed up in like 3 days. You can order the book online, too. (i think)
