And now on to the elephant in the room and to answer the question 'what did she do on the dyno?' I'll put the graph with the before and after runs below but here is the summary:

Old = 185.8 BHP / 97.71 Ftlb
New = 187.04BHP / 97.5 Ftlb

Sounds like a waste of time looking at the numbers but what it doesn't tell you is the shape of the two curves when compared side by side. Between 4-6k revs, the after curve has a massive increase in both torque and power (about 20%) which is what I was feeling on the road. Before, it would chug at ow revs, get going and then go bats hit crazy at 7500+RPM. Now it pulls smoothly and like the proverbial train before sgoing just as crazy after.

It makes it feel far less of an all or nothing bike to ride which is one of criticisms levelled at the 1199. I know it was improved for the 1299 but neither like low revs too much. I'm a little disappointed there wasn't a bigger headline number but 187bhp (at the back wheel) is pretty damn healthy. I don't know if the second run was hampered by the bike wanting to slide on the dyno roller but the tester seemed happy with it.

Here's the graph:

I'm trying to upload the second run but the first dyno run is below:

The stop gap solution to the knackered tail tidy arrived today so I got it / them fitted. The solution is an integrated tail light by Whitelights and a NRC plate hanger which is a common mod there in the US but not so common over here - mainly due to the size of plate that has to be used due to the lack of clearance under the bike. Both parts were supplied by Design Corse and actually arrived really quickly.

Here's what came:

The tail light is a smoked, rather than red version which I think fits in well with the rest of the bike. Here are the OEM and replacement units side by side:

Of course, the other difference is the wiring for the indicators being included on the new one. It was pretty easy to fiddle with the routing of the wires as the new tail can be stripped down in a matter of seconds now.

Here's the finished job:

The new number plate is on it's way and should be here tomorrow. I just hope it doesn't melt straight away!! I've heard some plates are fine and others are rubbish so I'll have t wait and see. It may even require a pressed metal plate in the end.

Although the above looks pretty nice, my goal is to actually produce a new version of a tail tidy that allows me to run some normal indicators and a slightly larger plate so as not to attract any attention. Right now though, it's simply the case that I can't ride the bike without the stop gap above!
