Couldn't have said it better! thumbs up!Im well aware of what a dyno does, ive had my bike on one enough times! You can measure road speed as well as HP and Torque!
If i were paying for engine work or a turbo i would want to see before and after dyno charts of HP and Torque so i could see where my money went and what i got for it.
But then as i didnt pay for this work i guess it doesnt mater does it!
To be honest, im suprised that youre happy to quote an "about" figure for the horsepower. Sure you have a graph of road speed but a dyno graph will tell you more if you know how to read it. Its not just about how quick it is flat out but what the power and more importantly the torque curve is like. Its no good having nothing low down then loads of horses at the top end, you want a good spead of power throughout the rev range on a road based car. A dyno graph will show this better than any speed graph ever can!
So come on, get it on a dyno and show whats been acheived please!!!!!!!
