K8 184hp

Just wanted to check with the rest of you. I've bought a K8 1000.
Pc5 + yoshi pipe + dyno = 184 at the wheel.
The engine feels strong.
Anyone else get results like these?

Re: K8 184hp

I didn't have the bike set up.
The guy I bought it off did. The bike was meant to be raced in super stock series. The joint is reputable, but that is still a lot of power.

Can't break 200kms without reserve light on... So it drinks it's share too

Last week did a riding school, and drive out of corner onto straight... One instructor commented it's a very fast bike, where his 999s could not keep pace on the power... I know not a fair comparison... But still.

And an s1000rr rider on the day was not getting away... So I'm not sure what is what. I wasn't in the right gear.. Being third when could had been in second and was slightly gaining on the BMW.

Will find out better at the track in 2 weeks I guess....

Re: K8 184hp

Regardless,if the bike just has a PC5&a pipe its not making 20-25rwhp more than stock.

Re: K8 184hp

Even if I post up my dyno print on here, i'll be hearing about how they dyno is wrong

I called the mob that performed the tuning/installation of the comander etc...

They utilise a cold air intake (variable speed fan) to simulate real life conditions.
Something most "larger" tuning garages should.

Will find out in 2 weeks, when I get to open it up on the track straights, and see for myself, if it is quicker than other machinery.

Irrespective, nice motor on this thing. Bought it because of the engine and trick suspension/add ons... whilst being a good low km bike... The numbers dont really matter, but i'd be nice to know for sure.

Unless it has internal engine mods the dyno is wrong

You came to ask for opinions..and then when you get opinions you refuse to believe them because that isn't what you WANT TO HEAR.

Re: K8 184hp

Oh and unless you were at a school that had mostly pretty well advanced racers as students, judging yourself to another rider on a BMW is honestly pointless.

I can eat up BWM S1000s on my 06 600 all day in most any trackday group.

Racing? Different story. Gets a lot more difficult .

Most trackday riders, and even many racers fail to get to WOT... I know YOU do... they all think they do, but they dont. It is really common for a 600 who gets on the gas earlier, and harder and stays WOT to pass 1000s with ease. So comparing yours to another based on closing speeds doesnt prove anything. Sorry.

You want to know for sure? Take it to another Dyno. Independently. Get it ran. I BET it is far lower than you think it is.

Not to say the bike is weak. Just normal.

Re: K8 184hp

.......it's when I tuck in behind an S1000 (on the 600 mind you) on the front straight at a track day and notice they're not pulling away when I'm "C'mon dude, you're only at 1/2 throttle"

Sorry GOD!

I asked opinions, and I dont have to agree with people's opinion. What I wanted to hear was to see what others were getting, and when I read through this forum, the range for a 1000 GSXR appears to be between 160-180HP....

So who is right and who is wrong.

All I CAN say is when I swapped with a mate, S1000RR for a short ride.. engine alone, my bike had a far stronger bottom end. BUt then its not apples for apples, as my gearing has been modified..

Just a discussion. No need to get upset that your word isnt gospel bud

you have no idea, i was at autoclub speedway last month and you would not believe the number of guys on 1000's sand bagging on the long ass front straight and not realizing it. i would use all my gearing there.
