Maximum Power Modifications

There was a thread a while back that Ken from Evolutione posted on where he listed the tested engine output for the KS (190+ HP) and mods (including an electronic engine management system @ around $4k - $5K) Can anyone point me to the thread please.

Found what I was looking for - 2 posts by Evoluzione 14 March 06 (Dimsport control box) and 3 Feb 06 (ECU interceptor box). Now that the latest engine management software upgrade is showing definite improvements a little more bang for the buck looks worthwhile. Easily found bolt-on power and torque gains with low speed manners looks good. Opening the engine for head mods is a major undertaking - not attractive.

how much power is needed

Lenz,
I have to ask... how much power do you want? over 200 hp?

what do you want to use the bike for...riding or picking "fights" to the next stop light?

I ask because 167 to 175 ( crank shaft) is doable with a laser can & chip about for about 6 to 7 hundred dollars US. You would have to get 190 hp ( crank to realy see a difference) after that point.

maybe you need to look to the UJM's?


Just wondering!

look here for lotsa power! http://www.mab-power.de/turbowerksta..._lzgallery_pi1[showUid]=104

Incredibly wise words. I wish I could loose 40 pounds! That is worth 4 horse power!

I guess my real issue is an engine hobbled by things like low flow induction and exhaust plus engine management that is compromised by nonsense emission targets. Emission targets for bikes while a "nice thought" have the same effect as an ant on an elephants
arse when compared to the greenhouse CO2 emissions of coal fuelled power and industry. Have a read of "The Weather Makers" by Tim Flannery to get fully informed on the very real issues of CO2 / Greenhouse gas...........unbiased and very relevant.

Enough of my personal irritations, I just see poor design outcomes and can't help myself. You mention a chip to go with a Laser can - what chip would that be ? I've had a look at the Dimsport site for an engine management alternative but have a feeling it would be like opening up a bag full of snakes - you'd better know what you're doing if you want to go there....garbled Italian / English translations of supporting documentation leave me cold.

What is a "UJM"....an Ultra Jooce Maker....I'm just a simple farm boy sir thets easy confused....please tell me what you mean. I'm looking for the most bang for the buck which means non-invasive, bolt-on performance parts. IMHO turbos are more trouble than they're worth.

A UJM is a universal japanese motorcycle.

So named because they're all pretty much alike...or were at one time.
The term has been around for a long time, I'm thinking at least since
the 70's.

Had a look at the turbos on that link - awesome engineering and output - a serious ripple effect on transmission and rider skill / healing ability. My wife would be collecting on my life insurance policy if I owned a turbo KS or KR.
