Eastside Honda does very good work. Have heard they even do work on some of the pro stock bikes when nhra comes to town. Bad dyno room set up over there.

I would work with who usually wrenches on your bike and the dyno of their choice.

Yeah... I think Motorcycles Unlimited uses Northwest Honda's dyno man. I've had multiple bikes dynoed at Northwest and they've always found some HP while smoothing out the curve. Worth the money. I actually plan on taking my '08 10R over there soon!

He was near a perfectionist when he did mine.

I'm building a vintage track bike and would like to get the final carb tuning done on a dyno. Any rough idea what to expect for a cost?

Depends on the bike.

As far as Dyno tuners go, James Shaefer at Extreme in SA is amazing. R&T uses him exclusively. He's an ex Yoshimura wrench as well. He knows his stuff.
