I will be dyno testing the KFX450 Next week. I will dyno it stock to get the best BONE stock HP number. I will then have these runs.

Thanks again for the first LTR numbers you provided about a year ago. Looks like you might be providing the first KFX numbers now. Gee, what are you going to be dynoing next year at this time? Maybe the new KTM? Anyway, how about throwing a newer stock YFZ or LTR on the dyno at the same time so we can get a good comparison on how the new green machine compares to its main competitors? Not expecting much of a difference but you never know. Your the man!

Thanks ..... i try my best to get and share all the info i can. I have stock LTR450 number from the same dyno. So we will have very good side by side runs for the LTR and KFX. I know they wont be on the same day, but they will be off the same dyno and under the same conditions. I theink BONE stock vs. BONE stock the KFX will beat the LTR. Now the KFX will not touch the LTr with baffle out, lid off and a cherry bomb. I will have a power commander for the KFX too so we can see what it will do with the lid off, Power commander and baffle out.

I got the ESR pipe on saturday. So i now have a Pro circuit and a ESR pipe to test. Now i just need to get my bike back so i can get some tests done. We are working on the a-arms. Dasa is working on the pipe now. So as soon as the a-arms are done i will get some numbers.

Hey Fuel, can you also measure sound levels too? I know that I am looking for a quite core pipe (<96db) for racing requirements.

"Using the SAE J1287, the sound level is measured 20 inches from the exhaust outlet, with the sensor held parallel to the ground and at a 45-degree angle to the exhaust centerline ~3200RPM."
