Hey there, i was wandering what bhp output is a result of akrapovic exhausts and a k&n air filter and a power commander with a specified map to suit, i know i own an mt-03 but the engines are identical to the xt660's, ive got a pair of akro's on order and already have a k&n installed, but im interested as to what bhp i will get from this.

cheers

Tom

On an XT, you can get anything between 49 to 51.3 however these figures were achieved by people that fitted a Power Commander and a DNA Stage 2 filter, which to my knowledge (this filter) is not availble for the MT-03.

The pipes alone will give you a couple of hp more, but changing your existing filter for a k&n will not give you any increase in power output, the only beneifit is that you can use that filter for a lifetime as it is washable and can be regenerated by spraying it with the K&N oil kit.

I think they quoted the MT03 as having 65 bhp when it was released but have never heard of any real figures from the dyno.

I would be amazed if the MT-03 had that much power I had one for 2 weeks as a loan bike, and it wouldn't go faster than 95mph, it did feel a bit quicker at the lights but that might be because it has a larger rear sprocket, but from the comparison below from the Yamaha website shows no indication of HP only torque and it doesn't seem to be different from the other models with the same engine

Well Supermoto's and Enduro's were never designed to break the world speed limit, they are not sport bikes are they Ben? Laughing

the MT and XT may not be world record breakers in a straight line, but id like to see a 600 sportsbike beat a well ridden MT-03 in the twisties, as im yet to see it happen! although ive reached 107mph on mine, on private of cooourrse it is a slightly underpowered engine, but in an exquisite chassis, quite possibly one of the best handling bikes you can buy!Thanks for the responses by the way!

Cheers

Tom
