Bike dyno in Houston.

I'm looking to so if anyone knows where theres a dyno in Houston. I need to get with them to see about renting if for a few hours so I can tune my bike. And I is the clue word. I'm at the point in my tune where the bikes making too much power, traction is becoming an issue, and the top of 4th gear puts me at well over 150mph. So I think it's time to put it in a controlled environment, and run it on a dyno.

Any suggestions?

I know of Johnny. My whole point is so I don't have to travel. I don't have a truck, nor do I have a trailer. My bike isn't really set up for a 3 hour ride.

I'm also experienced in tuning, and rather do it myself. That's why I'm looking for shops to call that might have a dyno I could rent hourly.

Yea good luck with that too, there isint any shop gonna just turn U loose on there dyno, liability for one, U might find someone who will work with you on tuning, even that might be pushing it, Johnny is the man, if U have a bike like that then havent ever thought about a truck or trailer? and exceding 150 in top of fourth, I have a stock 1000 that pulls over 100 just in first

Get a wide band data logger..

Or heck, pay for gas and lunch and I'll run you out to Johnnies.. maybe get mine done as well.

+1

Get a wideband... All of the Innovate stuff is good....

OR...

Use Johnny...

None of the locals are going to let you use the dyno....Any shops that DO let you buy time by the hour around here and let you do the tuning, likely has old equipment and maybe not even weather stations...

Do you ride your bike to the track? What happens when it breaks?

I have a data logger, but I don't have the real estate in my area to run it all out SAFELY. plus like I said traction is an issue. It's more set up for the track.

150 is a rough estimate. I don't pay attention. Roughly 300hp wakes up real fast.

Truck...no use for one, trailer, once the bikes done I'll get a small one.

I know johnny cheese is my best bet, but like I said getting out there is a big challenge to me, plus my work schedule. I heard he only tunes on saturedays. Couldn't do that.

You can rent a fullsize truck by the airport for a couple hundred, I would just do that and take it to Johnny. He will tune whenever he has time weekday or weekend. Heck, when he was taking classes he tuned my bike on a Thur night since I was off Wed/Thur at the time and that's when he was free. Give him a call he will work with you and do what he can...

Otherwise, texlurch said he would run you out there for gas/food cost...
