I don't see a turbo in my future.

I still need to get used to the speed at this level couldn't imagine a turbo bike.

Hopefully weather will clear up and I can get to a shop this week. anything on the NW side?

I don't know of any on the NW side. Houston Superbikes has a dyno and it is reasonably priced. I think I paid $120 for them to tune my bike. Probably 15 runs or so to get it tuned nicely. Just to do a single run to figure out hp would most likely be a lot cheaper.

They specialize in turbo setups, but they also deal with nitrous setups and built motors. Couldn't hurt to call and see what they are about.

Albert, get ready if you got the bike just for drag racing. You will start spending money chasing lower numbers. Spent plenty on my car getting lower ET's. I thought about getting rid of the car and building a drag bike (figured it would be cheaper but came be just as bad as the car). Shane Stubbs sent me a pic of his new bike. This is going to be quick.

That pic doesn't even come close to doing his bike justice. A 1k on dope is quick if you are light and know how to work the clutch. A lock up clutch takes the idiot factor out of the clutch work

This pic shows more of the engine. Albert, Sorry for hi-jacking your thread a little.

No worries Byrd.... You can make it up by bringing your 10 out to the track. ;-)

I was decent on a street bike back in the day.... but this power will take some getting used to. I have time before I feel I'll "need" more power.
I only have 3 hours of highway speeds and maybe 20 minutes of neighborhood riding. I haven't even tried to launch the bike yet. I haven't even hit WOT throttle yet.

Picked up the last of my gear last night. Just need some seat time and or good weather for the track to be open.

This bike has an auto tune system on it.

just curious.
That's not a true dyno, it's an accelerometer. It has a heavy wheel which is accelerated and horsepower is calculated. A true dyno will hold the engine at a constant RPM and the torque required to do so can be measured at specific RPMs. Since horsepower is directly related to RPM and torque, a true dyno measures true horsepower.

In my opinion an accelerometer is a better machine to measure real world performance. For example, if you lighten your crankshaft and rotating mass, there would be no change in horsepower measured on a true dyno. However, the engine would spin up faster on an accelerometer and that machine would give higher HP numbers.

Probably wont take my bike to the track to race. Have a car for that. You beat me back in the day on 610 and would probably beat me now. haha Take some time to get use to the bike before you hit the track. I put a Riflemans 1/5 throttle insert on mine (sure it is the same for the GSXR) which makes it easier to get full throttle without have you wrist in a weird angle.

I still have the interior out and electrical out. Upgrading to the MSD Power Grid. Did you ever see the current motor? 11's was a long time ago with the Pontiac 455. It will run 9.70's in the 1/4 on all motor with the 598 (on 93 octane). Think I'm going to finally mini tub the car and get ride of the stock suspension.

Yeah its been a very long time. it's been over 10 years since we worked together. it you are old. ;-)
I think the best thing about you car is the fact that your car runs those numbers and is still a street car. Once you tub it, its just another race car.


So now you don't have an excuse to come out on the bike.
