I'm not one of those 'pissing contest' guys that's all about having more power than the next guy and rubbing it in, far from it.

A friend of mine is like that, rides a GSXr 1100 and is all pissy about me not being able to keep up with him on the straights.... gee you think?!?
Gets all childish when I tell him he looks like a clown dragging that lump through tight corners
Atleast he's a good guy other than that...

I was just genuinely suprised to see how big the difference is between what the internet will have you believe and reality.

The articles Royal posted clear up some confusion.

I suppose the factory numbers would atleast HAVE to be crank hp's instead of wheel hp's to explain the discrepancy

I've had more powerful bikes aswell during the time I've had my XR, this is the one I kept
'87 XR600R, 17's and fully black
