Dyno Charts & Real-World
In an effort to quell the debate over which performance parts make a difference and clearly demonstrate the gains acquired through the installation of such accessories, this page is reserved for real-world data from Raider owners who have had their bike tested on a Dynamometer.
If you have taken the plunge and had your bike Dyno-tested, please send us a copy of the final data sheet, along with a list of the performance modifications you have done to your ride, and we'll post them here.
If you have taken your Raider to the drag-strip, and want to share your results, email a copy of your time-slip, and we'll post that here as well.
Star Motorcycles does not publish HP or Torque figures, and results will vary. To establish a comparative baseline, we'll use the following:
Motorcycle.com - 80 HP, 105 ft-lbs.
CycleWorld - 85.9 HP, 106.3 ft-lbs.
