A couple weeks ago I did a Dice Run and won the grand prize which was a free dyno tuning from a local bike shop. The folks in the room that knew I rode a wing had a good laugh while I accepted my prize. Today I took it there just so I could get the real numbers of my personal bike. I was very happy with the results.

It was 75 degrees, pressure at pretty much sea level - 0% correction all around. Final numbers is 103hp at 5400 RPMs and 118 lbs torque at 3400 RPMs. The power curve is fantastic. Very smooth. I'm happy.

What year wing do you have Fuse?

The "sniffer" tells if you are close to the magic air/fuel ratio number for maximum power....lean or rich.
FUSE, to add to what Transformer says.... Its placed inside the exhaust pipe.

I ran mine a couple of weeks ago. It was 103F with high humidity and about 800' elevation. My numbers were less than yours but they were dead consistent.

Thanks to both of you who posted your hp and tq figures. The graph posted by Brad Felmey explains a lot.

The wide nearly flat torque curve across the engine operating band and in particular, from about 2,500 rpm to 5,000 rpm tells us a lot about our engines. For one thing, our engines are running at peak torque at around 75 to 80 mph. I like to cruise at 74 mph on the interstates in daylight and good weather if I'm going somewhere, not just out for a ride.

The torque curve does suggest that our engines could pull a second overdrive, sixth gear but torque would be reduced some.

Ahhh, no he didn't do that. I would assume it was for two reasons. One is it was free for me :) so that's just an extra step and probably because we knew from the start there would be no tuning. I have to say, with the curve shown on the graphs it really shows Honda did a great job tuning these motors.

Nice. I as well had three runs, they gave me three separate printouts instead of on one sheet. Also wish they did color. All of mine were very consistant like yours as well.
