Without spray a CR500 is never gonna make 100 horse period, end of story.

Ive got a pipe, silencer, reeds, heavy porting, modified piston, milled head with modified squish running straight C12 and it still aint nowhere near 100 horse without juice.

Just about all bike manufacturers rate the engines for crankshaft horsepower. Assuming a stock CR500 makes 65bhp(the factory rating by end of production), two of them would make 130bhp.

Where is the extra 40hp/cylinder coming from for a 210hp rating? Without special equipment, that also is 210hp after accounting for transmission losses. I'm not saying it's not a real working engine, just that their power claim needs some explaining. :banghead:
