Tuned bike. Learned a little bit about the dyno world and how HP numbers are figured. Algebra...and the formula is always subject to change. Tuned bike last year with vacuum leaks at TB adapter, missing TB caps, filthy (never cleaned since birth) TB, leaking battery, new plugs but old wires, and re-used exhaust gaskets (tech told me it was ok to ru-use, found out he's wrong). Made 96hp 105ftlb.
Replaced TB adapter, replaced vacuum caps, cleaned TB, new battery, new plugs, new Taylor 8mm, new exhaust gaskets. Yesterday's numbers fresh off dyno - 89hp 96ftlb.
I couldn't help but wonder - what the actual F*ck?!
My tuner, who basically had a masters in making sh!t go fast, broke it down for me. It's got to do with the Correction Factor used with the new software updated into the Power Commander software - SAE 1.02. You can see it at the bottom of my new Dyno sheet. I'm not gonna even bother to explain it, because I myself don't fully understand. But, in a nutshell, it's a new formula used to figure HP. Last years Correction Factor was STD something something something. That Correction Factor boasts greater numbers. One can only help but wonder the amount of grand hussleing going on with the ability to manipulate Hp numbers to appease a customer. Dirty.
But at the end of the day, I rode my machine and she's never felt so smooth and powerful. Took my a$$ from the seat to the rear fender on the entrance ramp. Have the absence of dust to prove it haha. Fuel curve is on point and I couldn't be happier with the tune. Rant over
