Dyno Day.. anyone?

Hey guys.. I was up at Enginelogics a few days a ago with my friend who was getting some stuff fixed on his Mr2 and i spoke to Chris the owner about how much it would cost to put my bike on the dyno. I thought it would be nice to have a dyno day to cut the cost and he said it would be fine with him. He just wanted me to let him know when. If i can get at least 15 people he said 50 bucks for 3 pulls. i thought that was pretty cheap but if you guys think thats high or whatever then i can talk to him and see what we can do. hes going to set up his dyno for us biker people on that day and its going to be fun. i am willing to bring some food and drinks and stuff as well. there are some rules and stuff that we have to follow but this is just a feeler to see if anyone is interested. if so then start listing. Date for this event is aug 12 on a saturday, noonish. After the dyno maybe we can all organize a ride and grab something to eat. if everyone seems like they are up for it then i can present a list of who is going to attend and prepare for this event. PM me if you have any questions or problems.

I dont think you wanna use a car dyno on a bike...wont be as accurate...

kinda like using a 100k load cell on a max load of only 18k, a 20k load cell would be the one to use.

most dynos can handle 1200hp..... our bikes avg around 160ish.

I am not sure that a car dyno will work for a bike and accurately represent the numbers...

this dyno does work for motorcycles. its a Dyno dynamics for those of you who didn't check out chris's website. www.enginelogics.com you can change the load to compensate for motorcycles or something like that.

Uh.....guys? What is the point of a dyno run if they aren't set up for power comander mapping? I get all my mapping work from Lunsford's NW Honda. They will actually tune your bike to that slip-on or full exhaust system you bought for the sound and bling. Will smooth out the overall performance of your bike and give you the HP increase you paid for with that bling. Better bang for the money spent..............go fast bang!
