Dyno Testing should I or shouldn't I

So I got a flyer for a local Harley dealer, they are having an event in a couple of weekends. Demo rides, food, fat chicks in tiny tank tops all the good stuff they have at one of those. One of the things they are doing is a Dyno test, 3 passes for $40. Kinda want to do it, so I have a baseline. So when I get around to re-jetting, de-goating with 'H' pipe, and putting my HD dynas on I can see how much of a change it makes. If I go somewhere and they have a dyno again. All I have done now is drill the baffles, which I can't see make much of a difference in power from stock.

So I am curious what ya'll in your infinate wisdom think of doing that. Is it a decent price? I don't know if they will give me a detailed report or not. Be sweeet if it had power readings graph, plus accel times. I don't care if I am the only guy there doing it on a metric or not. I think it would be kinda cool to do.

Hmmm, sounds like a very good price... I also wonder how it would come out against the Sportsters (883s & 1200s), so if you do it check out how they did against your VN750...
Have a good one...Old Dog...

if you do the dyno have them run the horsepower /torque then you can check it agenst what ma kaw says our bikes have.let us know if there is any diffrence. we have a bkie night here in my area on friday nights , they charge 20 bucks for two runs, dont see a need for three runs.

The reason for the third run is so you have a third run is so you can have a better averge. typically an engine runs different once it is completly warmed up as compared to cold.

I personally would definantly want to do a Dyno. Is this the HD dyno Drags???

Naw slim its just the annual party this dealer does I think. yeah 20 for two sounds better. I would be paying twice that for one extra run. It would be curious to see how it stacks up to the stock HD. It might be close to the 883, but don't the 1200 have close to 100 stock?. What would be interesting is seeing a graph with the powerband. Since our bike revs up a lot higher it would be nice to see where the usable power is at, how long it lasts, and where it drops. That'll help with timing shifts when I'm street dragin.

When someone does a dyno run do you just go all out or do you take it slow?

You might be close to the 1200 they are no where near a 100 Hp stock more like around 60 so it might suprise you.
