I used Andy, will use him again when necessary, and would recommend him to anyone.
FYI, don't necessarily seek for "most power" out of your bike. Rather, look for best efficiency. In doing so, you will better the economy, smoother delivery, and better reliability.

Go to metricmotorcycles.com and you'll find him there. His shop is off W. 27th just inside 610 on the north side.

Andy let me watch the entire process, showing me how/what he was adjusting and the corresponding increases in power.

Don't look to get bragging rights from the dyno. Andy's dyno is real numbers, other dynos are more like wishful thinking (the way he explained it).

Oh im not trying brag about anything, since my internals are still stock u know. The only reason I want a tune is because it is running rough ever since I put the exhaust on and intake, I dont know anything about motorcycles so I just want it to run right.

How much tunning cost for motorcycles? or how much does andy normally charge? if you know by any chance.

thank you, once again

Andy is The Man when it comes to dyno work. Your 'lil R6 will run fantastically when he's done with it

Patrick uses the Dyno at NW Honda, and has tuned all of my bikes. If your looking for that lil extra, get in touch with Billy Weise or Jim Cambora. Both of those guys do AWESOME work. I personally have no experience with Andy's work, but it seems to be quite a lot here that have.

Jim's out of Austin, right? I'd like to get in touch with him. Would you have any contact information? I would appreciate it, John. Please send via pm if necessary.
Thanks again.

FWIW, the tools are only as good as the person using them. Andy @ Metric has good stuff, and an astounding amount of information between his ears. Call him up and pick his brain. You'll understand after that.

Jeff.
