Yep - the Zuke has 4 more horsies that you do. That's my thought. :evilaugh:

Horsepower on a dyno is in reality a rough estimate. There are all sorts of things that play into the factor. Rear tire size. The tightness or loosness of the chain. The gearing. Tire pressue. The pressure of the straps holding the bike to the dyno affect the numbers.

I can keep going. I wouldn't feel bad about 4 missing Dyno horsies.

you can always take solace in the fact that it is a honda and not a gixer, which should be enough. but if not when are you gonna need all that power anyway? at that point its the rider, not how hard the rear tire is spinning.

Yeah You can throw dyno numbers around like crazy and all that really matters is that there's more than enough power there for you to use. My 05 stock got 158 on the local dyno I took it to. an 06 gixxer 1k was put on it and made 148 before a full yosh exhaust and pciii after it got 161, last week an 06 1krr got 146 stock then 159 after a full akro system, pciii and down one on the front sprocket. So of course these numbers make no sense to me since mine made more stock than these other two according to the same dyno.

I have ridden the gixxer and it feels stronger than mine but it's also had the front sprocket changed since the dyno run as well.

Dyno's seem to be a great way to tune for power but as for going by the exact numbers they put out I wouldn't be too concerned about that.

exactly, they are great for tuning and getting the fuel trim correct, but after that the variables are so great and many (gearing, rider, weather, etc.) that all the liter bikes are more than ample for any street situation in my opinion.

when I got mine tuned all I was looking for was a nice gain and smooth curve. got both. 6hp through tuning and almost tabletop flat curves. the thing is so smooth its rediculous.
