Just had my roadstar on the dyno
today. (IT was free at lynnwood cyclebarn, as they let the first 20 bikes get done for free as part of the bike show and burnout.) I was a little reluctant, but figured it was free, so what the hell. Results. 68.9 HP
, 99.9 ft lbs of torque 1st run, 68.1 HP, 98.7 ft lbs. on the second one. Here's the nitty gritty. Exhaust gutted, with the stage 3 drilling mod. Intake is ported. Radiused is more of a better term, as the "T" has been cut down so the flow is better, even on both sides. Dynojet 195 in the carb
, with a K&N intake manifold and the stock air box cut out on the bottom to let in more air, stock ignition and engine otherwise.
Questions...what are the stock numbers for the 1700? (2007) I'm curious as to what the gain was for the work I put into it and cost of less than $150.
Is there anything else I can do increase the numbers, inexpesnively. I know there will be answers saying "HP costs money, i get it, but with what I've done so far it's been a good gain. I'm only interested in more HP and FT LB because I'm 6'5" and 300 and like to get a little more oomph. I'm thinking maybe the dyna
ignition, but what real gain will there be.
After I retire from the military and I have more money than time, and the warranty is gone, I'm going to try my hand at turbo charging this bike. Insanity? yes. Doing it anyway. going to be unique. I'm sure that's enough to digest for now. Thanks for any and all replies.
