Be careful man. You tune on a chart, one axis is throttle position, 0,5,10,20% and so forth, the other axis is rpm, 1000,1500,2000 etc. many tuners will just tune at 100% throttle, print the dyno chart, and make you feel good.

The downloadable tunes are really good man, and if the 015 map is rich- it should work fine since you have velocity stacks and are at a low altitude. I highly suggest trying the map, then if you notice a flat spot go to the tuner. Odds are it's going to feel great. If you do get it tuned, make sure you compare the maps before and after

I planned on having him make a pass first,then tune it, and make another pass. Thanks for the input on that. Ill ask him before I throw it up on the dyno.

Oh and I haven't even put the velocity stacks on. I have been waiting for factory pro to get off there and send some out to the stores. Honestly I don't even think I'm going to pick them up. If I do I'm probably just going to leave the middle ones out. There's really no reason I can see for me having them on the bike if Im taking it to the track. I'm not going to be hitting the bikes potential anytime soon. In a nutshell I might just go your route and give that tune a shot. If it doesn't work then ill have them tune it. You got me thinking. it.

Glad we could help lol.

Let us know how it turns out- my bet is the downloadable time will be great.

Well the PCIII is on and tried the European setup with a little increase (315-024). Going to try a couple others when I get the chance. The quickshifter is on the way and I'm swapping out my k&n for the BMC. Thanks for the help and once I check out a few of these other maps ill hit you up for some more advice if need be. As for the tune I will definitely make sure I do get a throttle tune if it comes to it.

I doubt you will notice a difference between the tunes. I never could. Numbers at the drag strip were all the same also. Also the stacks killed my low and mid power. They stayed on for a day and then went to my junk pile of parts

That's what I have been hearing and yeah I'm not expecting rocket like gains of course, but just enough to help performance.

Nothing will give "rocket like gains". What do you get if you cant tell a difference? Not giving you . Just pointing out the lack of difference between the canned tunes

Yeah I agree but it is better for my mid range. I did see some improvement but nothing get excited about.
