Put my girl on the dyno last saterday. sorry but i do not have any dyno print out's she went well and at the end she had 114bhp at the back wheel.
i asked the bloke clinton if that was close to what the mag's say it is.
he told me at the crank you add about another 15 or 16bhp on to it and
thats pretty close to what they say.so it's about 130bhp at the crank.
i've put 3 videos into YOUTUBE named,Benelli on the dyno.
i had to sit on the back of my TNT couse she keeped on braking traction on the dyno. and the tyer got to hot and ripped a chunk out right around it on my new dunlop,what a sweet sound she made as well.
so i don't think i will be putting a PCIII or a tuneboy on her.
every time he hit 8000rpm she would keep spining even with me on the back.

Nice sound in there! ;)

Speaking about putting bike on dynos, I read an article from Michelin's tyre factory the other day. It said it is compulsary to change the tyres after a dyno bench session: pressure and deformation of the tyre are somehow different than on roads, so that the deformation damages the tyre. Too risky to keep these socks on :eek:

Your new Dunlop is dead anyway apparently...

dyno

I've been toying with the idea of setting up a dyno that replaces the wheel. Land & Sea do the basic unit for about $3k. Attach the sprocket of your choice, mount it on the swing arm, hook up a water supply, and go. No destroyed tyres, no slippage.

Fairly specific to Benellis though.

If I did it, is anyone interested ?
