Its odd cause I was reading another dyno test done by another magazine article and they said the street 750 produced less power.

So motorcycle usa did a article on the first view of the HD street 750. When they did the dyno the 750 produced 52.8hp which is close to 5hp less then what the other article said the bike made. I know each dyno is step up different then others and also other things play a factor. 5hp may sound like very little but it can make the deference in performance.

Breaking it down into percentages it does then seem like a lot, which it is and shows you it matters. Hopefully this is not widespread. Thanks for sharing

Very true. In the past I had a ford focus svt tuned at a local performance shop after they got done tuning the car they performed a dyno test and showed I had 215 at the wheels. Which I was super happy cause at the time I had not done nothing major to the engine. Later at one my local car shows that we having in the spring came around they had a mobile dyno test machine. I got it up their and they did the run and showed I had lost close to 20 hp. I was not happy by this so later I took it back to the shop and they ran another test and it still came back to 215. I was really surprised by this and the guy told me it comes down to how used the dyno is as well for the calibration being done. So it comes down to how the machine is set up and how often it calibrated.

Good point, how well calibrated the dyno is, is something I think some people overlook. Might be best to go for a 2nd test somewhere else if you have doubts about the original test you get
