Power Commander V, Dyno, Tuning..

So I am in the process of building my Ninja 300 for the track and have "all the best parts" purchased. High Flow Air filter, Full Exhaust, etc.. in the past on the Ninja 250 you rejet the carbs and take it to the dyno but these new fangled computers and things.

Any suggestions where to take it where they have the equipment and know how to dial it in? What does something like that cost?

my thoughts....the 300 isn't a power house...I don't think you really need a tuner will gain you any power but will probably just get your fueling correct for those mods. Id just try to find someone with those same mods and ask for their map or use a generic one on the PC website. Or you could get the auto tune and always tune the bike for the conditions for that specific weekend and track during practice the day before the races.....

Im mostly worried about fueling and smooth throttle when messing with MAPing which I am horrible with.....if the throttle is snatchy during the mid range and when your mid corner its gonna mess ur head up!!


I wish I could buy ur 250 man! I wanna get back in the game but I have too many irons in the fire right now.....I need to quit some of my hobbies!!

That 250 is pretty bomb. If you change your mind let me know. Id like to see it go to a good home.. I am kinda attached.

Just get the auto-tune module (does the 300 have an O2 bung in exhaust?)... it takes most of the guesswork out of it.

Otherwise, Andy at Metric Motorcycles, or the fellas at AF1, are who Ive had my best results from.

I have used "other" tuners in houston, and back-to-back tested AFR's and dyno readouts between 3 shops.

Dynojet dynos are real generous, and there are some "cheaper" tuners in Houston which will not give you a full tune... but rather do 100% throttle pull and around for whatever remaining time you are paying for.

PM if interested in more info, dont want to step on any toes.

We can tune a 300 for $200. This is a complete map, top to bottom. Takes a day to do, normally shorter but because of the severe heat we're having we have to let the bikes cool to prevent heat soak.

Feel free to give us a call- 8329643535. We have tuned numerous track bikes, actually have one on the dyno as I type and two more sitting outside the office door waiting to be tuned, as well as Solracers old R6.

And FWIW, unless you are turbo we do not charge hourly. It's $200 whether I spend 10 hours or 1.
