nothing wrong w/ D/L them, but there are so many variables that go into mapping.

To many variables.. Altitude, Type of exhaust, Type of air filter... You will never get the full potential out of your bike unless you have a custom map... If im going to be spending over 1500 in parts for power im going to make sure i get every last little pony i paid for :lol: Thanks for the heads up though

That is going to be one killer exhaust and setup.

Let me know which shop you chose and how they are I am looking at doing something similar to my 06.

Been racing and riding R6's since 99 so the rider is just fine.. I just enjoy ridding my R6's more than i have my R1's so i just try to get all the power out of them i can. But im not knocking your advice... there is always room for improvement... even if your a pro

Andy at Metric Motorcycles in the Heights. Great in-house dyno work! You won't be disappointed.

He does all of our race bikes, and many other racers too.

So Chris, where do you race?

Andy at Metric Motorcycles has the Eddy Current dyno with forced induction. He's extremely meticulous and does fantastic work. Well worth the money!

Anybody have price ranges on custom mapping. I have full arata titanium exhaust, k&N. Do bikes usually run a little rich? Ive tried to lean it out through my PC3 but havent had any luck.
