saturday morning was a trip to the dyno of truth,

Image

bottom line 34 hp, [yamahas figure is flywheel this is rear wheel]

but ive now got correct AFR [air fuel ratio] after a bit of adjustment so i now know i wont melt the forged pistons,

its taking a bit of getting used to as the power is way up the rev range,

im now re-learning how to ride like a teanager 8-)

Shouldn't be too difficult seeing as you write/spell like one.
