Dyno Follow Up

Well, after more dyno work, I have two more bikes in a good state of tune.Pierre's bike is up to 60 hp. This bike has my high comp pistons, 750ss cams, and Bruce Meyers heads. A homemade exhaust system was killing his top end, to the tune of 6 hp! I strapped on a wide open Conti headered open magaphone system and instantly got it up to 60 hp.

My bike is very similar to Pierre's except for 900ss cams and a full Conti 2 into 1 system. Note the results. 67 hp/45 ft lb! Those 900ss cams are the hot ticket. The other run here is the same bike with a 2 into 1 with a smaller diameter secondary pipe. The Conti 2 into 1 has a secondary pipe length that is tapered, which obviously works better.

Thanks again to Andy Palmer at West Coast GP Cycles for dyno help.

Ally Stuff

Pierre's Alazurra racebike has been naughty. Damn thing sawed through the ignition pickup wires. I zip tied the crap outta the wires to secure them afterwards. The wires were also grounding out on the engine case in 2 separate places. it took me 3 attempts to fix all this stuff. The bike dynoed at 53 hp on West Coast GP Cycle's dyno. The bike has 750ss cams. Bruce Meyers heads, Carrillo bottom end, and 12:1 compression. There's more power in there somewhere...this one should be just above 60 hp. I return to the dyno on monday. Stay tuned....

Another Ally

I bought another Alazurra the other day... I think this is around the 13th one that I've owned. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it...racer or street bike. I dunno.
