Highfive’s First Dyno Test
"It is what it is!" That sums up my first R² dyno test today.
I'm am blessed (or maybe cursed) to have one of the most accurate dyno machines made....the DynoStar...conveniently available to Rancho Highfive. I'm told its a $36,000 machine versus the more common $15,000 models. Not sure if that matters to anyone, or not. Just saying...
These are the Experts: Koweta Custom Cycles
Here's R² all buckled up spinning the drum:
Dyno Test #2
Today was the not-so-long awaited day to return R² to the DynoStar at Koweta Custom Cycles sporting the shiny new FMF Powerbomb Header & Q4 combo. We spent 1½ hours on the Dynostar, made 7 runs, and learned a lot!
Before the whining begins, I'll clarify that the atmospheric conditions were fortunately similar to my first test.
Test 1 on 12/08/08: 58.9 degrees & 28.88 in. HG
Test 2 on 12/19/08: 50.0 degrees & 29.39 in. HG
So, not too much to complain about there.
For a refresher, let's look again at the result of Test 1; 22.1 Hp & 14 ft-lbs Torque. This was with the stock header & muffler, with SA removed and Graves Insert installed. FMF-PP at 3-3-3-8-8-8.
