Yep, today was the day. Took it in to Blais Cycle in Miami. It is being surgically altered. 140HP is the goal. The guys at Blais are big time Suzuki guys and I spent a lot of time chatting with them before I decided to do this. I think they understand exactly what the goal is. We want 140HP (at the rear wheel) without going into the block and without using any artificial chemicals. They are confident they can do it and I have a bunch of stuff to take them in a week or two. First they have to get the motor out. (Did you know that some of the nuts for the engine mount bolts are not reusable? - - - I didn't either until we read the manual).

I hope I have the bike back in 4 weeks so I can ride it up to Daytona in late October.

If you are down in North Miami Beach, FL and want to check on their progress you can stop by Blais and I am sure they will give you a peek. They are pretty cool about going into the shop.

http://www.blaiscycle.com

I will be going down there a couple of times per week to take photos and I will post them when I get anything worthwhile.

While I was at Blais a customer had his Rocket there and we got to talking and I asked him if he had ever seen the Rocket vs M109 race video. He had and thought it was great.

They had another customer who had somehow heard about the Dyno run on my M109 when I hit 118 or so. He had a Kawasaki 2000 and all he wanted was his bike to be able to Dyno better than mine. They did some easy stuff (pipes, power commander, etc) and his bike matched my HP but had better torque. Blais said he ran around the shop gloating that he had more torque than me.Â

The M109 is really catching everyone's eye and thats one of the reasons that Blais is so excited to do my bike. They would like to become the experts on it so they can do a lot more of these.

Re: Kissed my M109 good-bye today

P.S.

I know that one of the first questions is going to be:Â What are you doing?

Here is the viewable portion of the list:

1. Dyno bike before removing the engine

2. Remove stock clutch to install new high performance clutch

3. Engine-increase compression by 1 point

4. Install new cams

5. Port, polish and totally go over the cylinder heads and valves

6. Install pair valve covers

7. Power Commander with MAP.

8. Install new wave front brake rotors

9. Install new air intake system (done)

10. Install new 2 into 1 pipe

11. Other small tricks yet to be decided

Here are my last Dyno runs so we can compare when this is done:

I am not running any fuel management system at the current time.

So here is what we got on June 25, 2006:

NO BAFFLES
118.82 HP
111.11 Torque

NEW BAFFLES
112.25 HP
109.00 Torque

Re: Kissed my M109 good-bye today

Here is a little game we will play. Copy the list of mods above and type what HP increase we will see for that item. Do it for each applicable item and then add it to 118.82 and that will be your guess in the "DYNO MOD CONTEST".

When the bike is done we will Dyno it one last time and the person who guesses the closest number to the actual will win a Dyno Jet Power Commander. You may be surprised where the number ends up if you add it up piece by piece. So put your best guess and you may get a free Power Commander.

And no matter what happens the final dyno is the answer. Even if any of the items are not done. If you think the cams are impossible then don't add anything for that. Or anything else.

Just place your entry in this thread.

  previous dyno run done in arizona 118.82hp and 111.11 ft lbs of torque minus 7 hp and 6 ftlbs for miami conditions
111.82 hp and 105.11 ft lbs of torque adjusted
111.82 plus 42 =153.82 rwhp and 137 ft lbs of torque
My Dyno runs were made in Miami. No corrections needed. Lamonts bike was Dynoed in Arizona.

That's 28.5 more on top of 118.82 equals 147.32
. My guess 147.32
That would be sweet.

Re: Kissed my M109 good-bye today & DYNO CONTEST

So far it looks like you all are telling me that 140HP is in the bag. I actually think its gonna be a lot closer than we think. I think some of the items may produce big gains when done by themselves but I think the gain declines when combined with other mods. As you go up in HP it gets harder and harder to squeeze more HP at the same rate as other issues will start to pop up.

No intent. I just put down on each line my best guess. When I added it up, I was kind of surprised it was only 139. I thought about rethinking it, but then decided to just go with my first instincts. I think the compression and cams will be a slightly higher proportion than most seem to think, but some of the other stuff down the list I'm thinking won't be quite as large as most are projecting. I guess that's why it came out a tad shorter.

This is a very interesting project. My heart says I hope you get 145HP out of it!!!

Re: Kissed my M109 good-bye today & DYNO CONTEST

My Revised Guess
1. Dyno bike before removing the engine = 0HP

2. Remove stock clutch to install new high performance clutch = 0HP

3. Engine-increase compression by 1 point 5HP

4. Install new cams =8HP

5. Port, polish and totally go over the cyliner heads and valves =1HP

6. Install pair valve covers = 0HP

7. Power Commander with MAP= 2HP

8. Install new wave front brake rotors = 0HP

9. Install new air intake system (done) = 6HP

10. Install new 2 into 1 pipe-JR style with a twist = 6HP

11. Other small tricks yet to be decided =0HP

= 28HP

118HP + 28HP = 146HP

Best of luck Hal..(your my hero for being so adventurous)..I hope it's more than 146HP
