Dyno is just numbers on a piece of paper to me . Long as it's breathing good I am fine .. Now that I remember who has the 255's . Probably do that and save some bongos...

Dynos are numbers but that tells you somewhat what to expect. I don't have the money to try 27 different sets of cams and 9 exhaust systems to find out what works for me and my riding style. Sheets helped me narrow it down to a couple.
Dyno sheets are a tool. How its used is up to the individual.

This is correct! The only thing that I don't pay attention to with dyno sheets are when people try to compare against one another on who has the best peak numbers. If it is a good tuner doing the work you can tell a lot from the sheet.

Right on Ken. If you haven't seen any of Sheffer Performance posted sheets its worth a look. Man spends some serious time getting motors tuned as good as he can. Super flat. Nice guy too.
Where the power comes on is what I was concerned about. My bike has been to 4 grand maybe a handful of times. The pull it has from around 2200 to 3700 is great, that's where I ride

I've seen numerous sheets of his and he does great work. I made a comment one time about the visual effect he uses when posting the sheets and really pissed off a couple of guys. What he does is widen the sheet left to right and shorten it top to bottom and this makes the curves look flatter than they really are. Not saying at all that it is a bad tune or even relatively flat but it is visually exaggerated at the least. He does do good work but he also seems to know how to present a product to maximize it's effectiveness.

I don't know anything about the visual effect he is doing with his sheets. Maybe its his computer? Something else? On purpose? I have no idea.
Like you said he does good work, also, very helpful to me in my choice.
He gets some praise on the tech forum. To get that on that forum is pretty good. Tough crowd over there.

Well it may not be on purpose but I don't know why you would do it that way for any other reason. Not saying he is dishonest either. I think it's harmless enough whether it is on purpose or not.

Jack if you are going to keep the motor stock except breather and pipes Cycle Rama CR-575 is the way to go, plenty of torque, comes on early and pulls long. It doesnít like high compression so it is designed for guys who donít want to bump the compression.

By the way JtB , Fuzzy claims you ride slower than grandma on a 3 wheel bicycle, so why the cams?
