Not happy

Was at a bar where the had a dyno there they put my bike on and it made
109.9 HP and 115.37 Torque I was hopping for a little more because the afr in the front cyclinder is very high I was told my controller was bad the heat that day at time of dyno was 109.84F 7% humidity tried to load dyno sheet but failed many times

Same exact build as mine produced 121.16 hp and 124.57 tq I would have thought I would be around 118hp and 120 tq but as i said my front cylinder afr was about 19 instead of 13.3 like I programed and I am sure the heat did not help

If it was hot and you know your AFR was off then why are you unhappy? On cooler day with the proper AFR don't you expect to do noticeably better?

I can't say I didn't see this one coming. Get that tmax tuned or find a real tuner.


Regardless on how thundermax promotes their tuner it needs to be tuned to get the most power out of it. Ignition Timing is everything.

Tmax isn't a plug and play unit. Just a bunch of BS

Maybe you could try a dyno that's not located at a bar

The 1st thing you'll learn about dynos is that the last liar always wins.

The 2nd thing you'll learn is that they're ALL different.

The 3rd thing you'll learn is that every engine is different, and every tune is different, every set of pipes is different. Getting the same numbers as your buddy even from the same tuner is a crap shoot, and if it the 2 engines were built by different builders it's even more difficult.

You're numbers are basically less than 10% lower than what you expected, the temperature alone could easily account for that much.

Getting 1 HP per CI is pretty good with a Harley ..

Never understood the fanaticism over Dyno sheets .

I don't care if it delivers 110 HP/TQ at 5000 rpm .. My motor don't live at 5000 rpm ..

To each his own , I gave up chasing HP/TQ numbers long before every dealer had a Dyno ..

Feels good passing a truck, but I'm with you JTB.

Harleys are SLOW period! You have to pour THOUSANDS into a Harley to make it even fun(if fun is defined by speed).
