Part introduction to me and my bike, a 59 A10RR.  Had it for far too many years, rebuilt and repainted it some 20 years ago.  It is due another overhaul but just keeps on going.  Fitted a new 28mm Mlkuni and decided to put it on a dyne to check out the mixture and see how the bike performed.  The pistons are about 7.25:1 and the rest of the bike is "standard".
Impressed with the web site and the information on it.  Well done to all concerned.

 Superb machines but where on earth did that torque figure come from ?
My 2003 FJR1300 has 143bhp with 99 ft lbs of torque at about 8500 rpm.
Same year Suzuki Hyabusa 101 ft lbs.

152 ft lbs sounds quite a lot for an A10.

A10Rocket,
You were more alert than me!

From the dyno run data sheet, the 152 is lbs (pounds) Tractive Effort.

By my calcs, 21.2 ft lb of torque is produced @ 5,455 rpm and 22 HP.

Oh well, back to reality!
