33BHP restriction help

More progress towards my kawasaki gpz 400r has been made but researching restrictions online means im totally confused!

I've heard of 2 things, restrictions from FI international which look to be a massive con especially when looking at reviews, price and how it ruins fuel economy acceleration etc.

The 2nd was dyno, i dont really understand this but from what other sources ive been on have said, its possible to restrict it via a dyno? (is this basicly like a service like on a car to recover lost bhp?)

I called my local Dyno place in malton, and they said that they cant restrict it via dyno but can restrict it with restrictors which he said will cost £140 to buy in or make himself with an additional £40 fitting cost which tbh sound like bull!

I read a review from this very site (which did help a lot) saying that you dont need a certificate at all as the crash inspector will find if its been fitted or not. Thanks in advance, im sure im not the only one in need of answers!

2 years

Does it really matter that the original post was approx 2 years ago?

There are new bikers, like me, who will pass on a 125 before moving up to a bigger bike within the 2 years restrictions.

The info remains current, only the cost (may) have changed.
