Dyno run

So my local shop was having an open house day and offering free dyno runs the other day. Classes were broken down by CC size.

Put the '08 K12S in the que in the 1001+ CC class. My only mods are a booster plug and I've removed the cat from the stock "potato launcher" muffler.

Ahead of me in the que, a modded 'Busa and a modded Kaw1400 ran up impressive numbers, untouchable by stock bikes.

Then right in front of me was a new Duc V4 Panagale with very impressive 194 HP

Operator told me they were doing most pulls in 4th gear, and I'm assuming thats what they ran me in. Started off with a couple of mid rpm run ups to test everything was setup correctly and bike was secure on the stand.

Then two strong pulls all the way up. She easily ran right up to and popped the rev limiter on both pulls.

Officially 153.1 HP at the wheel without any ram air effect.

Interpolating 10 % for drive line losses and 10 % for ram air probably puts her around 185 hp at the crank. I can live with that.

Nothing else in the class even came close. I finished the day behind the Panagale for stock bikes.

That's impressive for a mostly stock bike. How many miles does your bike have? And what's your elevation? I'd be happy if my bike dyno'd those numbers with 50k miles on the odo and at 5203 ft elevation.

That is just about exactly with my K13S did. 149 HP with stock exhaust and then I put a Remus hexcone with no baffle on and it ran 154.5. K bikes rule. This is at sea level but we all know comparisons have to be done on the same dyno due to differences in the machines. Still, lots of fun. The bike was fresh with only about 20,000 miles on it. Now my baby probably is a little tired of that nonsense as it has 120K miles on her. Still a handful when you want it to be.

So Florida so right at sea level, with almost 30K miles

Great to hear. I looked at Motorcycle Consumer News and their report on the K1300S in stock configuration---151 at the rear wheel on the dyno. I think Cycle World had it at 149.

I've been riding GS's for a long time--had a K1200S back in 2006. Forgot how incredible these machines are. Recently added (no cat):

MikeM - Greetings! I have the same Remus on my K1300S and love it! Where did you purchase the carbon exhaust heat shield and did you remove the cat?

Thank you kindly sir!

Yes, it’s the earlier version without the cat. The heat shield is from Bestem and bought on eBay. I’m thinking I like the stock heat shield better—after I spray it with satin black heat treated paint.
