HP is just an estimate, you could run it on 5 different dynos, and get 5 different readings. Stock HP is meaningless anyway. If you are trying to make performance improvements (not much you can do with a Vulcan 750 in that regard), take all your readings on one dyno, as they will always be "relative" readings. Jerry.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

I like mine real well and it is quick,but lets not get out of hand here,I don't know who you are riding with but they are not getting the full potential out of there bike ,A good rider on a 500 ninja can give a vn750 all it wants on a crooked road,a 6oo class or above,with a skilled rider will show us taillights.It has more to do with riding skills than what you are riding.I know riders on very fast motorcycles I can dust off with ease.I also know other skilled riders who can make me look like a rookie,just because they are on a sportbike doesn't make them Vallentino Rossi, it also doesn't make them the idiot kid down the street that only knows how to wheelie in front of a crowd,but a curve scares them to death either,I feel most riders ,me included can not use a modern bike to it's full potential ,but it is fun trying isn't it!!!

Thats me in a nutshell... But at least with a bit more power we can catch up in the streights......
I ride occasionally with an older group and mostly they just drag along, and that really gets ho hum, and it seems like I get in a lot more trouble that way, than when I ride by myself and take the curves at a speed that is more toward the limits of my capabilities (which ain't much), I guess I'm just not as cautious at slower speeds or something......
Have a good one...Old Dog...
