Hp4 power topped?

Is it possible to extract more power out of the hp4 through programming or removing restrictions?

I believe the top hp is the same as the existing S1000RR and only in the mid range there was improvement.There is always the HP kit for more power...

As so many have said so many times before "speed is money, how fast do you want to go ?" Of course you can get more power out of it.

The HP4 is going to pull more on the dyno than a S1000RR, due to the wheels being lighter and the exhaust giving it a few in midrange. I would guess we'll see a few more on top due to the lighter wheels.

I qualified for an AMA superbike grid on a bone stock 2012. Didnt even have any fuel management. The bike is already plenty fast. It'll make that R1 of yours feel like a pw 50.

Edit: I did have a full exhaust and changed my gearing.

Uh oh, there's worms all over the place.

btw H2 - I know of more than a few guys that have installed a full system and not bothered with any fuel management changes. The bikes run fine, maybe not as well as they could with a custom map on a PCV, but well enough for the owners to be satisfied. Our local dealer even endorses this activity.

I thought there was HP kits at three levels to bump up power. Not that I would need such a thing!!
