PCIII - can you detune to reduce HP?
I have what might be a dumb question, so bear with me. I have a 2007 Honda 919 with a PCIII. I had it dyno tuned years ago for optimum setup.
Now, I have never considered the 919 a starter bike, despite many arguments on here over the years to the contrary. Yes, it's light and handy, but I think it's just too much for a beginner, power wise.
Along comes my son, who now at 20, is really pushing hard to get into motorcycling. (Much to his mother's chagrin, but that's a topic for another thread.) You could see the disappointment on his face when I told him that there's now way your jumping on my 919 to start with!
BUT - what if I could tune way 30 horses - now it starts looking more like a beginner bike.
Is that even possible without injury to the engine?
