We are about to do some serious testing and tuning.
This will involve testing the Zard silencer, the Trident half system, the Chain Reaction Dual and low mount single, stock header, modified header, and custom CR header. this will involve a bunch of tuning as well.
As a bunch of speed freaks, would you want to see a comparison to the stock silencers, or do you even care about it?
I prefer not to waist time testing stock, but if you really want to see it...
I'm running a modified stock header, with cleaned up ports and removal of the pre-cat. My silencers are original Chainreactions. The whole system is ceramic coated inside and out. Right now I'm running the 10088 tune (non-SAI) but when I get a minute I'll try some of the other available tunes. Oh yeah, I'm using Kuhlka's SAI block off plates.
The thing runs like a raped ape right now. Definitely pulls harder just about everywhere than stock. I had it at the track once so far, and found that it was slightly quicker in the 1/4, and quite a bit faster at the line. Then I found that stupid kinked breather tube! Haven't had it on the track since I fixed that.
Meet in the middle on this one. Just a dyno run, bone stock, stock tune. Just for a baseline. I wouldn't think that would use much time or money. A baseline run on the same dyno we are gonna run everything else on would be a good idea. I wouldn't do it if it cuts us close on time though.
Limebone - We do not have TORS to test, both CB and I have sold or given away our TORS. And a 955i will not be tested at this time. Perhaps later.
Right now the issue is scheduling. Getting CB here, and getting several consecutive days of dyno time is proving to be an issue. I HAD tenetively scheduled this Friday and Saturday, but CB cannot make it - something about a court appearance out of town.
So we are looking at alternative dates.
I may test the header on my bike this week so I can get an idea of what to expect on CB's bike and start working on a few base tunes to start with.
Don't piss me off CB!!! What do I care if you have arrest warrants issued in half the country?!
I just want the header tested! My scoot is sitting up on jack stands cuz the wheels are still with Durrani, and I'm waiting for the results to see if I can go ahead with the final prototype. Then I have to get it out to bid before I can put it on my bike.
Mean time, the weather has finally turned warm, I got the speakers installed in my Shark lid, the new LSL rearsets installed, but all I can do is sit on my bike in the garage and play the soundbite in my helmet!!!!
Crap! You probably rode Old Yeller to court! (I'm pausing here so you all can wipe your eyes)
I hope ya'll are saving your pennies for your header. At least that will make the ride depravation sort of worth it.
Guv asked about the "feel"--I don't know about the Tridents or the Zard, but my dual is 10.5 lbs lighter than stock and the single is about 15 lbs lighter. I could feel the difference before I got out of the driveway the first time I rode with the dual system, and the single is endearing itself to me for the same reason. I still think the dual looks the best, but at 5 lbs ligter and lower still, I swear I can feel it. That's one of the reasons I'm so anxious to see Dev's dyno results. I think it performs a little better too. (Incidentally: Anyone who has my dual and would like to also have the single, for $75 I'll send you the stubby mid-pipe and a new clamp with a spring clip welded on and a spring) By the way, the header will be about 3.5 lbs lighter than stock, so with a full, low system you could lose somewhere around 19 lbs. Factor in the added hp and the all important power-to-weight number should get a substantial boost.
And as for the total weight, I could have sworn that when I weighed my bike on the scale at the dump it was 460 lbs. Did I remember that wrong Devious? Was it 560?
I don't need to see the stock baseline numbers. I think Devious2xs did a stock run before he went with the TORS, 112 hp but not sure about the tq, and that is good enough for me. I would like to see numbers from the Triumph/Arrow short pipe with precat removed and Triumph tune or TuneBoy map.
