I like how detailed this build is. You seem to cover every base and take every precaution. Awesome inspiration to my project.
I have done more or less the same with mine, but doesn't have to deal with the fairings as I am making a Sprint ST "Daytona".
Mods to date: head ported, daytona headers, daytona cams, increased compression by shaving of 0,6mm, velocity stacks, KN filter, daytona valve springs, ported++ throttle bodies, 18/45 gearing and Carrillo rods.
Went with the Daytona cams at 104/105, seems to work fine. The bike is still strong at 2500 rpm with around 90 Nm, peaking at 7750 rpm with 116 Nm.
With the Daytona cams, the peak power is not reached. So lifting the redline is a must. I went to 9900, but won't go above that until better pistons are in it.
I use PC5 for fuel, and to save cost on the dyno. With PC5 and autotune, the dynorun only managed to get an additional 2 rwhp out of the bike. So, very happy with the autotune function.
My aim is to get between 170-175 rwhp out of the bike. And around 125 Nm.
So far 150.55 rwhp, have a lot more to do, so my goal is not that far away. Lift the redline, bigger bore and get it breathing better should bring it in the 170 rwhp area.
I have no issues pulling this engine all the way to 11000 with better pistons. From what I can understand from the various forums I have visited, the max piston velocity is only theoretical. Engines have been built with piston velocities of over 50 m/s, as long as the hardware can take it. Good connecting rods and pistons designed for racing, should be able to take the extra forces from an increased limiter.
The extra velocity does increase the friction between the piston and the cylinder walls, resulting in a loss of power in the upper rev range. To battle this, I will look into getting coated cylinder sleeves.
So far not done anything to the ignition, probably do this when all the mods are done.
I was not aware that tuneecu have maps going above 9900, I was looking into getting a gadget that I could adjust the limiter 20%. But if there is a map that can use, then that is much better.
What numbers are you expecting on the dyno?
