    any one tried this?

    Build a Bike Dyno- calculate YOUR HORSEPOWER!

    I love indistructables.

    I know it will not be accurate (it will understate power due frictional loss and motor inefficiency) but give a baseline. And how many garage sales don't have a new $10 tread in the back.

    It will give you BHP, just like dyno shops for cars and bikes, it should give you a good idea of what you are making to the ground. Not a bad thing.

    Even if it didn't give you total or accurate to-the-ground HP you could use it to test the effects of any modifications you do to an engine.
