Hello all of you Monsters...
Does anyone have a Dyno chart for my '07 695???
I am toying with changing my sprockets & I am looking for the best Setup>>>
I contacted Jim Gnitecki to get his opinion but he needs the Dyno Chart>

Does anyone have any advice as far as what is a good gearing setup?

I think the 695 is very similar to the 620>( 15 front 48 back according to ducati.com)
The 695 is stocked as 15 front 42 on the back sprockets...
My ducati mechanic recommended just changing the back sprocket and leaving the 15 instead of the 14>>>
Any advice on this? He said my bike will be like a trick bike if I do the 14 & 40>>>
I want the bike to be more responsive on the low end but not lose too much off the High end> (I wouldn't mind more "POP" on the Low gears! I live & ride in NYC Everyday... a lot of STOP & GO!)
I do drive to NJ & Upstate NY as well, so I get good highway time also!!!
When I open my bike up (Top Speed) in sixth gear I still have a lot more RPMs (It is between 7000-8000) even though it feels like the bike will not go any faster> between 125-130 mph (top speed 135... Downhill!!!)
That is why I am willing to lose a little off the Top because it doesn't seem like there is anymore there anyway, but not near the Limiter.

Any advice would be appreciated>>>

THANK YOU KINDLY,

BARDO333

Here is a thread about the Dyno on a 695.

http://www.ducatimonster.org/smf/index.php?topic=60861.0

Every bike is going to be diffferent, not just every model but literally every bike can be. If you want to see what results the 14t did you should Dyno now as completely stock then again with the sprocket change....and of course post your results so we can see them. From what I know theory on the sprocket change is that going down on the front is proportional to going up on the back. I don't know alot about it, but so some searched for "14T" "sprocket" and the like and you will find some stuff(i just hate the do a search reponse, but am not a huge help). Someone else will probably chime in too.

Thats true, but for what JimG is doing (optimising the gearing) it's the general shape of the torque curve rather than actual accurate peak numbers that he needs.

And check out the torque curve from that thread!



its within +-5% of dead flat all the way from under 4krpm all the way to 8.5k!!!

That explains why the one I rode yesterday felt like it did... It's _nice_ to ride with a torque curve like that... (and thanks for the test ride Lillia!)

big sounds like you could be tempted to upgrade (to something!) if the spare coin was lying around!

Absolutely ! That's the one thing I noticed compared to my M900 and the same thing I told Lillia - the power delivery is totally different on the 695 - much smoother and linear.

and.....just so I don't feel totally inferior....the M900 stock, is 78hp & 53ft/lbs. The 695(according to the referenced Dyno charts) delivers 73hp & 47 ft/lbs. not much difference, but in the game of one-up manship, I am so glad that I am still a bee's dick in front. ;D ;D
