Newb dyno run tonight.

Recommended Posts

So we got a dyno a while back and haven't tried it out ( except on a bicycle). Never run a dyno before, any advice, Eddie? Things like set up tire pressure, straps, fans any thing that can help. Drz sm with stock tires and wheels.

Thanks, Alex

Haha didn't have it hooked up but could barely turn it. not sure on the model but it is a dyno jet. Older one with black diamond metal that matches our lift

With chrome diamond plate around the roller.

man a horsepower contest with bicycles on a dyno sounds like a great way to spend the long weekend (and maybe even a beer or 2!:smirk:)

Tried a couple of runs on the dyno but could not get the program to run correctly. The program is sport dyno vs 3.4 my computer sucks so I am working on getting a few pictures up.

Okay so I got the pictures up of the dyno and the screen of one of our runs (looks like a 4yr old scribbled on the computer).

Here is the bike on the dyno.

We were starting to get it dialed in but only said the bike had 24 hp and like 8lb tq.

I know our set-up is ghetto but it was close to free!

Stop using the dyno and educate yourself more. Find another shop with one and look at their setup. They may even be nice enough to give you pointers.

Look at pics on the internet of other dyno setups and read whatever you can on the software you are using. There are lots of settings in the software that you need to be aware of.

you need way more fan than that!

Yeah I know we also had a big industrial fan in the bottom left of the picture, not a very good location though. I think there are only two other dynos in town so I will try to look into it more. Also don't have a brake on the dyno so we would just put it in neutral and wait 5 min till it stops spinning, is there a better method? Didn't want to engine brake cause it just seems like way to much wheel momentum to strain the motor.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
