Custom dyno mapping for the street, unless you've got engine mods, is a waste of time IMO.
Install the map, set up the TPS, accel pump etc., tweak it a bit and you're done.

Patrick: Do you guys installed and setup the PCIII USB in the Speed triple that I got from your shop??

I noticed that the slip-on is not the TORS and seems to be a custom job for the way the exhaust is solder.

I download the software and the map currently installed is: M502-002: 2000 model with Two Brothers slip-on exhaust with stock or aftermarket air filter

I just wonder if the "accel pump" feature is worth it?? I'm afraid that it will increase the use of fuel but I'm not sure about that.

Thank you.

Dyno vs Reknown Mapper with Pressure Induction

Keep in mind a dyno run would be the best option to Map for a bike that doesn't use a pressure-forced induction; ie front air dams intake systems. The pressure increase at high speeds is significant. Suzuki spent over 10k just on the design of the intake tunnels for maximum pressure build up at higher speeds you can actually feel the difference when you remove the tunnels and ride the bike.

So dyno tune would be fine for lower numbers, but a reknown mapper who has seen and experienced the specific application may shoot a closer map right out of the box with your installed components.

Its an ongoing debate... Do what best fits your needs.

As for the dealer-programming questions, yes suzuki does have adjustment in their modules. It's like a dimmer switch on your home light. It is cheaper and if you don't go wild with your mods, don't bang the stock electronics and say PC3 is the only way to go, if that's how you feel strip the stickers off and build your own bike; you gotta appreciate what you ride.

lol to everyone, not stepping on any toes. I'll get off my soap box now.
