What is bhp output on Storm with short TORS

Hi all

Does anybody know how much TORS with hi-flow filter and mapping increases the horsepower (bhp) on a Storm?

The Triumph website states the Storm without the modification produces 97 bhp and I wondered how much of a power increase these mods give.

Excellent question! There are a lot of anecdotal reports out there touting the BBK and the short TORS. It would be very interesting to see some B4 and after dyno numbers. Surely there is some hard data to support the claims? How about it guys/ladies?

at the crank as triumph and others spec them it's 100. At the rear wheel according to a magazine test where they dyno'd a 1600 then installed the BB and dyno'd it again it showed 88 RWHP and 102 Lbs of torque. As a 1600 it dyno'd 74 RWHP/95 torque.

But those numbers are for relative data only. In other words, to compare the bike as a 1600 to as a 1700. A different dyno may read considerably more or less. By the way, at i think 5000 or 5500 RPM's they showed a 18 HP difference. So when you wind it up the 1700 is much better up there where the 1600 just runs out of steam.
