Just got off the phone with Graves re: some stuff for my bikes and while I had 'em on the phone I inquired about the Daytona tire tests next week and their 04 R1s. They said they couldn't give me exact numbers but that the 180hp figre was indeed at the crank and was also very accurate for the stock engine.
Hmmm, that translates to about 155-160hp at the rear wheel. Mmm, daddy likes!

Is that with the ram air in effect?
That means on a stationary dyno it would probably be 150'ish - similar to the GSXR-1000.

Im more interested in how it holds the power up top - that high redline ( 13,700 ) leads me to think there is a huge wide high power area up there. If it could hold 140rwhp+ from 10 to 13,7 that would be amazing.

Well, I just checked the Daytona lap times and the R1 in Superstock trim (ergo no engine mods, stock fork tubes, etc) is only .008 seconds off the CBR1000RR's best time and the RR is in superbike trim (ergo complete factory superbike engine, aftermarket suspension, etc)
BTW, both are faster than the GSXR1000's to this point.

This from the AMA site...

Yamaha's Jamie Hacking rode the new Yamaha R1 at Daytona on Monday. The reigning Supersport champ posted a best time on the scoring monitors of 1:49.552, a remarkable time for a Superstock machine and nearly as fast as the quickest Superbikes at one of the biggest horsepower tracks around.

"It's going to be really good," Hacking said of the R1. "We're still waiting on some of the parts for it so we're improvising right now. It's going to be a heckuva motorcycle, no doubt about it. I had a 1:49.6 on my dash. That's on a stock bike you can go buy at a dealership. What (lap times) are the Superbike guys doing?"
Ooooooooh yeeeeeeeeeeeeah! I gots to get me one o dose!

I guess the 47.650 Bostrom just laid down doesn't matter either, huh? I checked and last year's pole (B. Bostrom) was 48.376. Fastest race laps were 49.398, 49.711, etc. Only 5 riders ran sub 50 laps at all. Me thinks they're gettin' it on at Daytona right now!

The Yami laid down a couple more 49.5 and they say the bike isn't turning becuase they're using R6 suspension bits since they don't have the rest of the pieces yet. Hmm, going to be an interesting year fo sho.

Im starting to wonder if they are going to run the 1000cc bikes at Daytona. With the high speed tire failures it may be decided that its not safe enough. Mladin has already been talking about racing the 200 on a 600.
