Thanks for the props guys!

No, we're not the only shop in Houston, and yes Billy is a great guy and a friend of mine.
Unfortunately he's also going to be closing here in Houston and moving to be closer to his grandkids.
I'm sure though we'll still be seeing him at the CMRA and TMGP races.

As I've stated before, we're not the only shop in Houston, but we try everyday to be one of the BEST shops in Houston.
We may not always be successful, but I think we are, much more often than not.

even though you know good and well your shop metric and wrw are the best shops in houston. I frankly have tried many so i know. Now the bit of shopping i do get gets split only two ways.

BrutusTX told me that WRW packed his bags and moved to the "country".

*edit*
Just read Patricks post. Billy is a great guy. He did a ton of to my bike and he had it back to me 2 days. I told him to go ahead and check out brake pads, etc. after he was done and they needed replacing. Even though I have the knbow how on how to replace the pads I went ahead and gave him my business. My bike has run like a champ since and his customer service was top notch. There was absolutely no BS in the deal....here's your problem, here's your options, you want me to fix it? Anyhow, I too spread the love. Keep your local shops in business...that helps keep those prices down too

Someone had mentioned Klaus Speedworks~ John Klaus was one of the first people that I had ever delt with when starting my sportbike interests, so I still feel a little partial to him as you(I) actually deal with him directly, or nowdays, his son. John had been really ill for the past year due to a gall bladder problem, just about put him away it was so bad!
I don't know his expertise, other than he has a dyno, and machine shop, and a whole bunch of parts. If you had ever been to his shop, garage, barn, you'd know what I'm talking about. As far as shops go, I do enjoy going to Independently owned shops vs. a dealership; they just have the family atomsphere and I'm sure with out a doubt~ try harder!

Yes WRW has probably already gone. I talked to him about 3 weeks ago. I talked to a lady at Motorcycles Unlimited (I can't recall the name) today.

While we are on the tuner note, who can cut me a couple of maps for the ol'1000RR. Basically looking for right now a pump gas map and a VP U4 race fuel map. Somebody that can work with the HRC ECU's and a Power Commander super duper deluxe 3000hp USB model

Are you piggybacking the PCIII with the HRC box?

Well the PC3 just clips on the lower injectors and TPS. I'm using the HRC ECU with the stock OEM harness. Its more less just a plug in play arrangement. The HRC ECU's fuel table resolution isn't as high as the PC3's, and the PC3 don't do anything with the upper injectors where the HRC ECU does. Using the two at the same time makes for an extra long tuning session

From what I can tell, you ball park tune the HRC ECU first with a open PC3 map, then "fine tune" the PC3.

The fuel table resolution for the PC3 can be adjusted every 250 RPM, where the HRC ECU's are only.. I believe 500, or 1000 RPM. The PC3 allows for a bit more refinement.

The HRC programing cable for the HRC ECU's cost just as much as the ECU's them selfs do I would like to get my hands on one so I can adjust the 3 dimensional map for the HESD. That and I would also like to see what it takes to clone the cable

I haven't dealt much with the later HRC ECU's, you're right, the cabling and software is too damned expensive.
I just spent over a grand on new Magnetti Marelli software so I can do Duc's and Aprilias.

You can try calling Corky over at NW Honda and see if they have the HRC stuff to deal with it. Lord knows Ronnie has had them build enough championship winning Hondas.

IMO if the motor isn't really built up, the HRC ECU doesn't really give you much more than a stock ECU and PCIII set up, unless you're really needing ALOT more secondary injector flow.

FWIW, I've run U4 and done before and after maps, they're not that different both in terms of HP or rich / lean settings.

I have the software, its the cable I'm lacking.. you HRC!
VP U4 is noticeably oxygenated, I rather not lean out any.. I really doubt it will make much difference on the dyno, I'm just a perfectionist when it comes to my handy work :icon_bigg
There are 4 different HRC ECU's that I'm aware of for the 1000RR, the Basic Racer, Endurance, Superbike and JSB. The Basic, and JSB I know raises the red line up a full 1000RPM. This is a bad idea with a stock 04/05 motor due to single valve springs. The 06's use double valve springs. Nobody likes floating valves
I wont leek out my motor secrets yet But on a bone stock motor, the Basic Racer from Dan Kyle made a significant difference in feel, the bike pulled like 500 donkeys on a single plow :laughing6
I'm not sure off hand what all gets changed from stock as far as performance goes, I think its some ignition and fuel tweaking, I'd have to review my notes..
I'll get with Corky and see what they have to say. Thanks a bunch
Oh yeah! Did you get my PM about those PPowers :icon_bigg
