You-- how did you get Kait's vulcan on a Dyno grid? Did she send you the info or are you able to take data and create an actual Dyno?

She sent me the nasty, greasy, smudged page that she scanned in (It wasn't really nasty, just greasy and smudged). The only thing in the picture that is original are the borders on the left, right, and bottom, and the little grid lines next to the borders. The text, regular gridlines, and graphs were all redone in photoshop. The picture is a standard vulcan pic from kawasaki, and I removed the background and placed it behind the gridlines and graph, then changed its opacity to something like 35%.

Great job, Ernie. But for the record the RED line is the Horsepower and the blue is the torque.

cheers, kait

In the graph, torque doesn't hit forty. But at the top the label says 41 ?

I saw that too, but the lines on the graph were not especially clear, so I think it was just a blip at 41. But the Dyno was instructive for other reasons. I think it is clear that we have a couple of places to tune, but at 90 bucks an hour for dyno work I just can't afford it. I am happy with the 54.7 horses and the torque as it is. If I want HIGH PERFORMANCE, I would sell this one and get a Ducati... I like the cruiser, I like the v-twin and I like the price I paid ($2800) so for now at least, I will stick to the bike I have.
