finally got my 999s dyno'd. it has full 54mm termi's and 14t front with slipper otherwise standard. realsitically was looking for 130+ at back wheel. it came out at 120!
crank figure was 130 which is 6 down on stated figure for a standard bike. now i know dyno's vary etc etc but surely it should be chucking out more than this. the whole reason i paid out £1500 quid was to get more power for track days and i seem to have ended up with less! unfortunately i didnt have it done before the cans went on so dont know if it was poor before or just as a result of the cans.
spoke to ducati ashford where i bought it and as it happens there was a guy there from ducati who was asked what i should be expecting. he basically gave it the "different dyno's, looser engines, ram air" blah blah blah. im no dyno expert but there is clearly something wrong when other 999s's with similar set ups are producing at least 10bhp more. i asked what they could do about it and he basically said if i want it taking back to original cans, tested, then new cans put back, and tested to try to find the problem then it would be at my own cost!.
if i wasnt happy i would have to write to ducati uk (which i most certainly will be).
i'm well fed up, am i being overly sensitive here?
