Ummm..... Dynos are "off" by a percentage.

If you had 100 HP, 20 would be 20%
If you had 40 HP, 20 would be 50%

Dynos are not "off" by a set number but by a %

Your buddy needs some training.

Crazy

He had tuned his own bike 2015 Road glide the week before so put it on and it was down by 20 on the numbers couple days after my first pull. After further investigation the second drum was goofed up. I don't know what that means, but you can dyno 4 wheeler s on his dyno also. Don,t go by what I say on here. This cat has some very strong running bikes that he has built. His ZX 12 was over 300 hp with out nitrous still has it and that was done back in the day before his dyno. Mostly from just head work he did to the Kaw a few years ago. Anyway after a few miles on my Highball and 110 ft lbs tq at around 2800-3000 rpm cruising down the highway my bike at just a crack of the throttle in 6th just is a beast running down the highway. I am finding really no reason to down shift and make the header loud at all just running around to work are anything else. And just rolling no clutch it will fry the tire in first. Kind of got over that after the first few days. Figuring a rear tire was around the corner if I didn't quit lol. This Vic motor just runs up so fast compared to my HDs and they run good.

4800 miles so for

Bike still runs like a champ. first and second on the highball at full throttle mostly just spin. A 116 kit etc with 140 hp and tq would be usless in first and second on the highball. The rear tire spins pretty easy now. The thor sounds great. But my pipe covers had a bad coating and rpw wanted me at my cost to send them to Oregon form IL to have them recoated. I refused to do that I would of had over $900 in the pipes. I Used high quality heat paint and put them back on. Lady couldn't understand why I didn't want to have them done right. I said the exhaust is new And I was at like $860 in the pipe already. Ceramic coating was junk on my pipe. 2015 highball is a screamer for sure.
