You only got 54 hp out of the stocker?? :shocked:

And only gained 4 hp out of the optimal map. And what? $300+ bucks?

Do you have the same sheet for the Suzuki Gladius?

Something is very, very, wrong w hp numbers indicated on the graph. I agree. Significantly down power numbers to everything I have read regarding the new motor. What's up with that!

Your reading it wrong. Your reading the torque curve on the horsepower axis. It actually shows the stock bike is about 57HP and the modified fuel map gives 58HP (+1). The torque axis is magnified to make the torque increase look bigger.

As it is wheel horsepower it should be 10-15% less than the crank horsepower that manufacturers like to quote.

I found the gladius
http://www.bazzaz.net/Z-notes/PDF/Suzuki_Gladius.pdf

Looks like it went from 62.5 to 62.8 HP, but fixed some big holes in the torque curve.

Yep, your right. Around 57 rwhp @ 8200 I assume for the stocker.


Boy, that gladius stocker, How in the hell does it run?? :shocked:

$379 bucks plus $$$ for tuning to get 2 hp?? Seems like Gladius cams and pistons are good for about 4-5 hp.

Thank you for clarifying this for us. Great catch
