Dyno run didn't go exactly as planned,
After a couple of runs rear brake started binding which confused the Dyno chap as the fuel /air mix was getting altered closer to optimum the power was going down,
With the caliper moved off the disc he had another go.

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-)

I see the 34 BHP at the wheel! I thought they would have given you an output/graph of the run, Max torque and BHP and the revs it attained those figures at. Not to worry, I was only interested.

yes arry,
should have got that , but with the fuel alterations and brake sticking on i thought it a bit cheeky to ask [ i had 4 runs he only charged for 1]
and a queue behind me,

my 604 with 41 hp on the same rolling road[for comparison]
