hi everyone i have the 2005 kawasaki kdx220R.it is in showroom condition and has not many scratches on it. It has been taken care of like a baby lol:applause: but anyways when i first got it i dynoed it stock.to the rear wheel i got 37 hp.according to the japanese engineers in japan from the kawasaki plant they said the motor its self is 65 hp.i said how can that loose to much power from the rear tyre they said look, most bikes make that much but not as much as the 220(200,250,300 enduro competition race bikes).so they told me the percentage of power it looses and also because the rear end of the bike stresses more wieght to decrease the power and torque to the enginefrom the rear wheel.so now i learned a thing or 2.also they said its not really 70 on the manual but they rounded it to 70 from 65 on the specs for the owners manual and changed it later on by to inputting the power or torque as a factory error really the engine has 37hp they said it was a factory eeror thats why in the owners manual they put *specs subject to change in the future.so now i have my facts straight.it really makes 37 period well to the crank to the rear about 30 – 32.now i have bought mods for the bike and here is a list of things i have done to it so far.
– kn air filter kit
– fmf gnarly desert exhaust pipe (gold series)
– fmf powercore 2
– modified air box (protection of less mud going threw and more air flow)
– rejeted carb
note *: please guys i need to know how much horsepower and torque you think these 6 mods gave me in addition to adding them on the bike already. i felt with these mods more power at the bottom – top.but over all i can feel it in the middle giving me both.in my opinion altogether i think these mods overal gave me a horsepower gain of 3-4 on top and 2-3 lb-ft torque on top can you give me a answer if you think i gained more than what i thought or less than what i thought thanks guys .now hers the thing i want more power and torque so here are the three things i am listing that gave more interest to me than any other add on part for the kdx that i thought would add the most power on top for all situations bottom end – top end performance.
-#1 frp (freddette racing products) torque ring
The FRP Torque Ring installs quickly and easily between the cylinder and pipe for improved bottom-end performance.
note *: is that true what the aftermarket part guarentes about these specs is it true that it would add more power on the bottom but also on mid – top can you please tell me the horspower and torque that will add overall thanks.i think it would add 0.5 hp and 0.4 lb-ft
– #2 – MOOSE TORQUE SPACER KITS
Simple but effective way to shift the torque curve to favor the low to mid-range band of the rev range
note *: is this true what the aftermarket part guarentes about these specs is it true that it would add more power on the botom to the mid reange band of the rev range an somewhat ovbiously on the top.can you please tell me the horsepower and torque that wil ad on top overall to this bike thanks guys .I think it will add 1 hp and 0.5 lb-ft torque
– finally #3 my favorite as my belief of what this says even on the dyno charts wow probably the best add on part produced for the most power and torque. SCARYFAST POWERNOW SYSTEM
The POWERNOW SYSTEM™ includes (1) POWERNOW™ and (1) POWERNOW PLUS™. With the original POWERNOW™, only 1/2 of the problem was fixed, and now the introduction of the POWERNOW PLUS™, the whole problem is fixed.
With the POWERNOW SYSTEM™ expect your bike to pull longer and harder through every gear from the low end to the top end.
POWERNOW SYSTEM™ is available for most late model applications. Check the POWERNOW™ and POWERNOW PLUS™ charts for your application.
To order, please choose the POWERNOW™
note*: is this true what the aftermarket part guarentes about these specs
is it true that it would add more power on the botom to the top an .can you please tell me the horsepower and torque that wil ad on top overall to this bike thanks .cause when i saw these gains on the home site my eyes were balling of how much horsepower and torque gains there are for this high stage part.they said the full system wich is the powernow system the ultimate stage for the scaryfasracing product adds and i saw on the dyno to any bike in general 8 hp on top but at 1/2 throttle opening and 7 lb-ft torque at 1/2 throttle opening.can you please tell me if it really makes this much or less than what the manufacture guarentes of hp and torque at 1/2 throtle opening or less. and can you please if overall it makes alot of hp and torque guve me numbers here for all and ya for the powernowsystem the horsepower form the bottom to top thanks guys thanks alot. i think it will add 3-5 hp and 3-4 lb-ft torque
