What is a Dyno Chip

Hi All,

Newish rider here. Bought a ZX6R (1999) in the summer and it is meant to be 'Dyno Chipped'.  At the risk of sounding daft, what is it?  Been on the net and am no wiser!

Dyno Chipped

Never heard of that particular term, so can only assume its another term for "Superchipped" (Superchips being a company who supplied and fitted engine management tuning chips for cars, and rolling roaded them; the term "Superchip" became a generic term in the way that vacuum cleaners of any name are commonly referred to as "Hoovers").

If its been chipped, make sure your insurers know.

Hope that helps.

dynojet and superchip are what you are on about ............super chip is  a microchip which locates in a car or bike ecu not sure if a 1999 kwack has that option though  dynojet usually is bigger main jets and some shim washers to raise the needles and sometimes a high flow air filter maybe its just been breathed on a bit:wacko: probably...... is it fuel injected ??...dyno chipped is a load of old bollocks though

Superchips ARE available for bikes.  It will be a little box that is programable.  I guess it's a kind of mapping system.  When you have one fitted, you can set the bike up, remove it and put it on another bike of a totally different make and style.

I have one fitted to my CBR400rr but whether it actually makes any real difference, I couldn't say.  It has been extensively tuned over the years and the dyno graph is super smooth but no matter what I did to it, it never gave out any big BHP gains over standard apart from once where it ran awfully.  I dropped it to get the best midrange and it seemed as quick as many 70BHP + 400's i took it up against.

RGS have the piece of equipment to set up a Superchip Finedon Northants I think)

Dyno Chip?

Another possibility; I wondered if the original seller had confused "Dyno Chip" with "Data-Tag" (-an electronic security marking device from DataTool). It seems more likely on this bike.
