I went to the dyno yesterday

To start with, I met a new friend and found an AWESOME shop too!
www.CompetitionMotorcycle.com in pearland. Jeremy is a super nice, super HD smart and just an all around way helpful guy, and on top of all of that, they have a fantastic selection of anything and everything, rice to HD. Some wicked race bikes and a dyno set up. The whole staff was more than friendly and just a cool place and I'll be back.

on to the dyno day report:

Blah, poor design of the charge pipe made for a wasted trip:BangHead: . Under boost, I leaked like a seive at the charge pipe and intake connection.
Anyways, it sucked cause they were folks all gawking and expecting umpteen bazillion hp and it didn't even crest 80 . I am thinking in a repaired state, after what I saw, I should be able to do my 100/100 goal.
Boost guage was fluttering like a butterfly and the HP was a measley 78.blah :-) Anyways, making 5 hp over stock and blowing enough boost out of a 1" wide spot to totally remove the paint on the charge pipe! Wowzas! So, today, I am going to duplicate all of the below pieces into a one piece charge pipe /Y pipe assembly. Then back to the dyno on Tuesday hopefully. Ends up the fab work isn't done and this is the joy of R&D work (note: sarcasm). Screaming Eagle makes an intake for carb mounting that has a , I could wait for one of those to come in and make a for the charge pipe to fit, or make a one piece and ride today. I think I'll get busy.
intakepieces
note the missing paint from the boost washout. blowing some serious leakage there.
chargepipeleak

I also noted that when the air cleaner was off, at WOT, I had some reversion issues, so I think I'll reduce the exhaust downpipe diameter from 2.5/3" to 2.25 then 2.5 bottom pipe. That should give more velocity and a scavenge effect to the exhaust. Hopefully cancelling out the reversion and also increasing the torque too. Trial and error testing

Yea great people at the shop, thats who I called for looking for some help and dyno time. Sorry to hear you didn't get to do a serious pull, but I'm sure you'll get that resolved in a short matter of time.

I'm gonna ride it again today and should be on the dyno on tuesday if all goes correct. I am hoping it will all get ironed out and actually make some decent power. I would be happy with 100/100, I am at 80HP because of the massive boost leak and it hauls bawls, I sure am gonna like 100 with this HD gearing and torque.

As far as the reversion issues which were slight, that is due to overlap of the cams and the exhaust work won't help it. I also need to order the new filter K&N 3x5 angled.

Are you going to manufacture some kind of sheild or cover for the turbo? I was just curious if you ever thought about cleaning up the look.

I'm riding today again folks! whar' ya be?

As far as the power goes, I am not sure what I'll get today, I do know it flat hauls . Its reliable enough for me to let my friend take a ride on it and he loved it!, Of course he rides a slow big twin. His comments were that it pulls smooth and hard at the same time and had to shut it down at 90 in third and had a lot left to twist.

seems weird to me, the harley crowd spends big money to get 100 HP, and thats with a heavier bike also. the sportbike guy can go and buy 150hp with full warranty and thats 200# lighter.
My bike with the power it has, prolly 90 or so, seems like a freaking rocket ship to me! I would love to feel the rush of a 150HP

That's what I was thinking, my RC makes what 120HP? the Busa 150+? and I think even the Busa is lighter than an HD.

yeah my bike is lighter, cheaper, faster, quiter, smoother.

when i first got on the sportster i was expecting something really slow and sluggish compared to my bike but i was pleasantly suprised. although it has less HP i loved the feel of the raw power i guess it pretty much has to do with torque
