What was the temp and humidity? If it was really hot and had high humidity that could affect the numbers in a negative way. Curves look pretty good but I would've thought they could have tuned out that small dip at around 2k rpms. Aside from the numbers how does it feel to you? That's the most important thing.

Did you get it tuned or just a dyno run

I had the bike tuned. Temps were quite warm with moderately high humidity. I suspect the V & H I have n restrict performance too.

A good 2-1-2 exhaust and you can count on some better numbers I'm sure. I really believe that V&H Super Radius is holding you back a little although I bet it sounds good.

Both of yours were better than mine.
Rhinehart Slim True-Duals 4" with Stage 1 and tune. I thought it would be a lot better as well. The mpg is not great either. Averaging around 33-35

Ditto, I have the same set up as you and I'm lucky to hit 34 mpg, of course I only have about 1900 miles on, so probably needs a few more break in miles!

First to Acesneights. We should meet up and ride. Plus, I don't know if my numbers are inflated or yours are low :confused: My dyno was done is when the humidity was about 75% and temp was 79 degrees that day.

I posted my numbers in another thread. Not sure I can post them again here. I'll try.

My numbers were 90.11 hp and 111.63 torque

Exhaust are Freedom Performance True Duals. They look just like the true duals on the 96" motors. I run Big Boar 2.5" baffle slip ons. HD race tune

Aces: I will definitely be there. I usually hit Whitts Inn, Long Acre and the Sugar Shack on Thursdays. Then ride Southern Indiana on Sundays.

My mileage is very good but I just rolled over 6000 miles. Perhaps yours might improve. Thanks for posting your results to compare.

I just hit 1500. I've already talked to the dealer about a free re-tune after I get a few more miles on it. Coming from my 1998 RG EVO that got 48-52 mpg this is a big drop. Hell my Camry V6 gets 29 mpg.

Any comments? For some reason I was expecting more HP....
That exhaust is probably the main reason for the low HP #'s. Unfortunately that's one off the down falls of having an exhaust that short vs. a 2-1 or 2-1-2.

dozer, I'm praying I don't get numbers like that. Any reason why you would get that low numbers? I'm installing the dragula 2 and a PM max hp air cleaner. I'm thinking the tuner I'll take it to uses direct link.
