Anyone here Dynoed there Foreman, did you use an automotive Dyno, or a specific motorcylce/atv dyno? Would there be a problem using an automotive dyno, like a DynoJet or something?

It would probably work, but I think you have to use a fairly mild tread tire, and not have a full time 4wd bike.

Its a machine used to measure horepower and torque at the rear wheels. It more accurate that just engine HP, because it takes into account the parasitic loss of power through the tranny and drivetrain.

Its mainly used on racecars, to maximize their potential power. And find increases/decreases in HP after modifications.

I've had my 450 dyno test a few times at Percision Motorsports
They use a Mobile Atv/Kart dyno
Click on MY SITE and go to the dyno testing page.

How much did the dyno run you?

I wish we could find one around here.

Thats not bad to maximize the bike's potential. One of those is only an hour or so away. Most are in S. Florida. Thanks for the link.

I got the hook up in Orlando, but its a Dynojet automotive dyno. I could easily get a group rate thing setup, and could get it all done for a good price, But will that work?

Robb - You might want to check with them on the width of their dyno , to make sure the drums are not too far apart for a quad.
Also make sure their computer software will read horsepower & torque down in the 10-15 range.
