Dyno Day ~ Pissing Contest

Post  2wheelsagain on Mon 01 Jun 2015, 1:43 pm

~ Not Bandit related ~

Our little "Non Bandit" group had a dyno day on Sat in Warragul Vic.
6 non Bandits rolled up and a fun day (morning) was had by all.
My bike wasnt run as I was on my way home from Melb in the car but I called in to watch the action and shoot some video.
No mechanical pain was inflicted and top HP was 118 with the bottom at 114 (95 stock) so thats a nice increase for some basic carb and pipe work with bikes weighing in at about 195kg and fat mid range V Twin torque makes for plenty of smiles per mile. The bikes ranged from a 98 with 85,000km to an 06 with 20,000km. I cant wait tio give mine a run next time. I'm running shorter pipes than everyone on Sat but with similar carb work. The narrow spread of power says a lot for the original design I reckon.

As no tuning was requested the trick was finding somewhere willing to just do some power runs. An hourly rate was negotiated with TSP and a Sat cleared and the more bikes we had the cheaper it would be.

Any bike prep was done while waiting and rear tyres were inflated to 50PSI (and deflated post run) Surprisingly a couple of bikes turned up low on oil!

One bike was also tested as a top speed run hitting the limiter in 6th at 285km/h on the dyno) with stock gearing. Obviously thats not real world speed once wind resistance is factored in but pulling the 9,600RPM in 6th is still impressive.

The runs worked out to be $60 a bike and thats pretty good for pub bragging rights.

Incidently TSP (Two Stroke Performance) are milling their own 2 stroke 700cc engine. affraid  It looks wicked on the bench. No photos allowed! geek

Good to hear Warragal featuring in a post. I stopped there once after taking an M1 carbine up to the country for a test firing. I remember watching an episode of "Roots" on the pub TV.

So that's got no relevance to the post whatsoever!

PPS: I don't have the M1 anymore but I do have the DVD set of Roots.

Cheers.
