Had an appointment today to get the bike dynoed and make sure the a/f ratio is right. Turns out it was running rich, which should have been obvious because I could smell exaust/gas smell. Gained 2 hp and 4 lbs/torque. Man does it run like a dream now. Throttle response is noticably better and gained 5 on the top end. Guest im just surprised that the Wiseco programmer was that rich after putting cobra dragsters and the mach 2 air cleaner on.

-86 hp
-104 lbs/torque
-top speed 130 +/- speedo error

Ya the factory says they are rated for 106 hp, but that is at the crank. By the time the power is transfered to the tire it goes down considerably. around 90 is pretty much the common number unless you do some serious mods.

i would suppose that would be about right at 86-90 hp after you take away the 15% loss for the shaft and other factors....

I think the newest harleys (96 -103 configured will run). Add cams and they will run well. The beauty of an X is you have to add NOTHING.

I have a 1300 that I want to Dyno. Guy at bike week want's 50.00. Is this a good price? I have an open air box & cobra long shots and have done the Scar on the carb but I'm not sure I have the A/F adjusted right.

Ya 50 bucks seems to be a good price. I paid 100 to have mine done. The real only way to see what the a/f is besides ear is to have it dynoed. Then you can make sure its running perfect and you can have ease of mind knowing its where it needs to be. And if it is ok and they don't make changes, at least you see what your bike can do. Because I am sure you have been wondering...lol
