That's fine but most of us ride on the street not on a dyno and mostly at part throttle.

At part throttle, engine management, be it an ignition module and carb or EFI makes a big difference in how nice the bike is to ride.

Some guys never get it right and end up with a bike they don't like anymore and just go trade it off...
