Ok, searched everywhere on this site and this is only thread that I could find about the stock LTR Horsepower? Sorry to drag up an old thread but I am really curious about this <_< ... and thought someone like KidsDad, Junkie, Fuel etc. would definitely know for sure? I am talking completely stock as it comes out of the factory :) Thanks

when i bought my ltr the sales man told me suzuki rated them at 43 hp stock. i laughed at him. lol

That # doesn't sound way off to me. In a magazine test I read a LTR was dynoed at roughly 44 HP. Of course we are talking about HP AT THE CLUTCH here.

Yeah, but honestly, who talks about hp at the crank?

So you guys pull the engines out and dyno them on a stand? Or do you just not dyno the bikes at all? The rwhp seems the easiest....

:p No, same dynos, same method. Add the average loss - voila! Don't ask me why it's done like that, probably because the higher hp-# looks better.

its just my opinion but i think dyno #'s and hp are stupid. its tells you nothing. every dyno reads a different number. no 2 are the same. i know guys who spent $20,000 on profesional motor and almost cried when they ran it on the dyno because the numbers were low. but when they took it to another they got a reading that was 200hp higher. all a dyno is good for is tuning you motor. so what im sayin its kinda pointless to go braggin that ur hp #'s are better than every one elses. the real test is on the track or where ever you ride or play. im not bashing any one its just my opion on dyno's and people who brag about there hp.

The dyno is a tool period. When you mod a bike you need to look at what changed in the curve not what the peak number is. Dyno racing is pointless...but a dyno is an invaluable tool.

I use the same dyno for every run for all our bikes...I can evaluate what a modification did on my build and use that information to help determine if I will keep the mod.

Dyno numbers used to brag about HP numbers is worthless. Now when the same dyno is used and conditions are duplicated ...... Dyno numbers used to show HP increases are PRICELESS.
