There are few points in a bike build that have more potential for self back patting and/or self loathing than the inaugural visit to the dyno man. It is the place where a curved line graph and 3 magic digits coldly define the fruits of a long winter spent chasing those elusive extra horses.
Dyno runs don’t normally come cheap but thanks to OSS member Havoc ( Tom Davidson) we have secured the use of a dyno provided by RTR in Nottingham. Dyno sessions will be 20-25 minutes for just £25. Each dyno run will come with a full print out as well as advice from RTR’s proprietor.
The date for the planned dyno day will be Sunday the 31st of July starting at 10am and it will be held at RTR Motorcycles, 7 Moorbridge Road, Bingham, Nottingham NG13 8GG. The venue is just 2 units down from Allens Performance so we will try to arrange carb jets to be available for tweaks between runs.
In order to make the day financially viable we’ll need 12 people so once we have 12 people paid up the event will go ahead. If we don’t have 12 people by the end of May we wont do the event. Details on how to sign up and pay can be found here on the forum. If we have more than 12 people and our costs are covered any surplus will go to the air ambulance fund.
Tom has also arranged for a catering van so that members can keep up their strength on the day.
If you are looking for a dyno run to set up your bike or you just want to know what it’s pushing out at the back wheel £25 is not a lot of money.
Naturally we will start a competition where members can claim a BHP figure before the start and depending on the results we might resurrect the OSS bullshit award for the biggest difference in the dyno result.
Please bear in mind that your bike’s mechanical well being is entirely your own responsibility and OSS takes no responsibility for mechanical failure or any resulting mechanical damage that may occur during your dyno run.
