You need to work on your front tire chicken strips before worrying about putting your bike on a dyno

Get a good map put on it by us or someone you trust. Don't waste your money on a dyno tune unless you have a built motor, turbo, nitrous ect....

Get the autotune kit and tune it yourself. That's one of the great added features of PCV vs. the old PCIII.

That's what I've got now. You put a baseline map for your particular exhaust and then it autotune on how you're riding and temp/humidity conditions etc. really cool. I agree with BEVO, Work on thos chicken strips first. BTW what tire pressure are you running front/rear?

I was told that a PCV + Dyno would perform better then the Autotune + PCV.

PCV costs 300, Dyno Costs 100? maybe 80 if I found a deal, Autotune costs $250

Please inform me more about PCV and Autotune combined, thats all I need?

Patrick do you have this in stock?

The autotune will pay for itself after one tune. Any changes you make after that will be free. I have used mine for maps after big bore motor work and nitrous. Its is flawless. I tested it against a dyno and there was no changes the tuner could make to improve what the autotune did

The real question is: would getting it dyno-tuned or autotuned make enough difference for you to want to pay for either at this point? Is the fueling that far off on your 650R (I assume) to warrant spending $400-$600 for PCV + tune?

Anyhow, one thing about the autotune is that you are paying $250 for the hardware, which is mostly reusable, possibly on other future bikes. Dyno tuning pays for the service one time on one bike under one set of conditions.

A man can do what ever he wants to his bike, its his bike, and i'd rather pep it up a little then buy a super sport

A dynotune would easily run 200+. Nothing beats an experienced dyno tune, but for the money, the auto tune really can pay for itself easily!

I can get you an dynojet auto tune kit for the best price you'll find anywhere. Give me a call if that's an option you'd like to go with. 281-651-1961

The problem with the auto tune is all you can do is select a target AFR and it puts it there.... You don't know what the bike really wants.... For full throttle tuning the auto tune is OK but, for part throttle/light cruise operation, you can't just have it set at a single AFR range...

All that being said, unless you have gone into the engine, its probably not worth tuning it at all....and a generic map off dynojet's website will likely hurt more then it helps...

I spent a LOT of time on the dyno with my 1000 perfecting the map... But honestly the bike ran great with the full system and stock map. 4hrs on the dyno netted me 2hp gain at peak over the stock map....BUT we did pick up a ton of power in other ranges and different throttle positions... You just dont know what they want. Some areas we picked up 12-13 rwhp at 40-60% throttle pulls.

At some throttle positions/rpm ranges, my bike wanted to be in the mid 11 AFR range, other areas it wanted to be 13.5 afr. We tuned it for power, not for AFR...

But on nitrous stuff and turbo stuff, you have to tune for AFR to keep it alive.
