Re: Arata equipped 954 dynoed at 151 hp!!!
The bikes will vary as well as far as how much difference each system will make. For example, on 2 R1's I did recently, one bike gained 7h.p with the Arata system and the one I did yesterday gained 14h.p. Same bike, same system etc. And Arata said the same thing, (because I asked what the hell was going on). Different bikes will gain more, and some less, with the same mods. I have seen that with other bikes too. So to say that ON ALL BIKES the Arata makes 2h.p more than the Hindle (on all 954's) I don't think is right. On THAT bike it was, but on other bikes, I don't think it would be.
I have seen 149 from 130 with the Arata and mapping, so I don't doubt your mates bike is putting out those numbers (but it is a different dyno, the GAINS are what is important). And maybe your bike didn't get tyhe gains that other 954's will with the Hindle system. It ain't all just as cut and dry as most people think.
