Dyno result before and after modifications

I will be installing the Remus full exhaust (headers and mufflers), the Booster Plug, and a K&N air filter on my stock 2012 K1600GT today. Already did a "before dyno" run, which I will post the results of, later. Some of you might be interested in the power gains from these three modifications, so I thought I will share the results. Hopefully I can finish the install by tonight, and have the "after dyno" results some time tomorrow.

Are you doing them one at a time so you'll which one(s) gave the gains (or losses).

I will go out on a limb and predict <2 hp and flat torque gain. Purely a guess and make sure bike is in same mode each time and not like when initial Remus readings were rain mode then dynamic. Miraculous gains were a result!! lol.

I'm betting 15/20 lbft torque and 2 HP gain...

your pessimist is another guys realist..

But… ..always fun to debate and a a Cycle world dyno showing 112 TQ and then Motocyclist coming up with 107 doesnt change the fact these are some potent heavy weight touring bikes with a tendency to lean towards the sport side of touring… ..

And some of them are known to lean a little to the left, too (literally, not idealistically)

Torque and hp gains within the tolerance range of the Dyno +|- 5% for a Dynojet brand. You need at the minimum 5 back to back runs to establish the average. Less than that you have erroneous results.
I predict around 2% gain at high rpm for hp.......
