Not necessarily . Once the motor runs 'good' ( tuned to factory specs ) , then the rest of the machine has to be made to 'run' as good .

Obviously , the rear wheel will have a bit more drag when on stand , due to transmission interaction .

Those last few MPHs are the hardest to have .

Always remember that it's the little things that make the big things run . ;)
