Honda CBR400RR race bike Dyno set up

By 21st November 2012 Honda, Race Bikes

The owner of this tidy Honda CBR400RR race bike – Joe – wanted us to set his bike up, so left it with us. We did an initial run on the Dyno to see what was what; luckily, not much was wrong, just minor fuelling changes (tweaks on the needles) and a slipping clutch to fix. Interestingly, Joe had felt a loss of power (and his competitors kept gently creeping away from him on the straights) but this was likely to be down to the clutch letting go at peak rpm.

Good luck next season mate!

Here’s Joe with his Honda CBR400RR booked in for a Dyno and set up. His dad (who came in with him) had actually re-built the engine; he was a Honda technician for many years.
