Hi, we are from Hong Kong and newbies to engine tuning (motorcycle) . We have just joined your course and found the topics and knowledge are very useful.

Recently we have bought a Dyno (dynojet) and started doing some testing for race teams and customers bikes. Our first question is what gear we should use when we are making a power run?

Thanks for your time.

Hello thanks for the message

the gear used depends on the bike and the dyno, the best gear is the one that gives you the best control over the power of the bike on your dyno but typical is the 1-1 gear in most bikes that is 5th in a six speed but often if the bike has very little power you may need to use 3rd
