An air filter will make things worse if not fueled properly. But you should do both at the same time imo Wink

Hello..............here is the graph

DB9 before_after by Gavin Robertson, on Flickr

As you can see the graph shows an increase over the standard issue DB9

The standard Diavel kicks out 162 hp according to the factory... which is 129 bhp on the X Bikes dyno (obviously horses in Peterborough are bigger than in Bologna)

So...in real terms the Bimota Walbro ecu and standard DB9 settings are about 1 hp up on the red bikes down the road

More importantly is the change in graph shape ....where I use the bike.

I very rarely push above 8500- 9000 rpm being somewhat mechanically sympathetic......... coupled to scaring easily.

Final figures were achieved using a K&N filter and no cat, however, since then I have added a Arrow Titanium exhaust and reset all setting, as well as wearing tighter trousers.

I hope that this helps


regards
Gavin

arsenic and Gavin,
Thanks both for your suggestions and info. At least now when I get a dyno run on my bike Ive got something to compare it with!
Will let you know how the fueling issues go.
cheers again

Rich

Richtea,
How are you getting on with the DB9?
Is all good and are you enjoying Bimota ownership
Or are you still using plastic cutlery

Regards
Gavin
