dyno #'s tire?

Recommended Posts

I dyno'ed a fresh 450 for daytona yesterday and it came up a measely 53hp. I was expecting around 56-58hp out of this bike as that is what we have gotten in the past with similar config.s But this bike was dyno'd with a maxxis DT tire on the rear and all the bikes in the past have been done with Goodyears on them. I gave the guy a goodyear to put on but he and the dyno owner both thought the tire change would make no difference. Has anyone had dyno results differ between these two DT tires and please explain why. Iunderstand if I used a knobbie but these are similar DT tires and I wouldn't think there would be a huge disparity between there results?

it must be something other than the tire , I dont even think a knobby would be off 3 to 5 hp , but I have never used anything but a street tire :applause:
