It's like anything else performance-wise for your motorcycle. Cost is based on what work is done and by whom.

You can get some of these local shops that have a dyno to do some work for you and pay very little. What you'll get is very little.

If you take your bike to a respectable shop that has a good reputation and does lots of performance dyno work, you're probably going to pay a lot more, but the results are much better!

All that said, dyno tuning is a waste of money for a street bike with little or no mods IMHO. Unless you have a full race exhaust and/ or you're having performance issues, spending money on dyno tuning is money better spent on other things (like track days, safety equipment, performance parts like brake lines and suspension, etc).

Dynotuning can improve the driveability of your bike, even if it is not heavily modded.

Usually, decent tuners will charge around $250-300. I would recommend Johnny Cheese to tune any bike. www.johnnycheese.com

He gets $300 usually. He tuned any and everything.....nitrous, turbos, big strokers, twins.....He will get the most power out of your combo while maintaining a safe tune.... If I don't tune my own stuff for some reason, I have Johnny do it...

I hear Andy at Metric Cycles does a great job also. A buddy of mine with a 230hp all motor ZX12 swears by Andy's tuning ability and meticulousness...

$20 for a single run? what a joke.... They should have atleast done 2 pulls....Usually the 2nd pull is the stronger one.....I mean how much longer does it take to make the 2nd pull, like 30 secs total?....

Johnny Cheese did a dyno day(all busas) a couple years ago, he didn't even charge for it and he made 3 pulls each....Needless to say, he picked up quite a few map jobs after that. He has also done dyno days for the VTX boards.....

If anyone is interested, I could probably talk him into doing a dyno day for $20-30 a person, 2-3 pulls on each bike......Maybe we could get a group ride together to ride up to his shop(in Round Rock) then spend the day there dynoing all the bikes, then ride back that evening....>that would be a of a cool day.... We would probably need atleast 20 bikes to make this happen.

Then you would benefit from dyno-tuning, it would almost be essential I would think after you make those mods.

Well, define "heavily modified". A full exhaust is not "heavily modified", but the bike would see some benefits. Folks who simply ad a slip-on and air filter (like BMC) will likely see little to no effect on performance. Not sure what you mean by "driveability", but unless what ever mod you did caused a serious flat spot or something, nothing will change from the way the bike runs/ drives unless you have the aforementioned mods (like full exhaust +++).

Johnny has a very good reputation, as does Andy. Motorcycles Unlimited has many loyal customers that really are happy with the way Patrick and Co. tuned their bikes, so don't ignore them either (not to mention, he's a site sponsor www.motorcycles-unlimited.com).

Those of you just looking for a number, educate yourself a bit on the subject first before you get too excited about your 200 hp on your GSR1RRX 600. Lack of calibration, ignorance of proper dyno readings/ operation, and purposeful manipulations by the operator can do many things to your readout.

If you want real tuning, hit up a reputable shop that educated folks on that subject suggest- or- do a lot of homework on the subject, contact the recommended shops, and make a good informed decision. There are a whole lot of folks here that have real experience with racing and dyno tuning though that can get you started in the right direction too.

Some bikes have flat spots or dips in the powerband that I have seen cleaned up with a power commander and dyno tune.

My RC-51 felt a lot better after I put a PC on it and had it tuned and all it had was slip ons.

I definitely think the R1 will benefit from a custom Dyno tune. There was a big dip at 6,500-7k that Andy at Metric Motorcycles was able to remove on mine. Andy has a very nice setup and is extremely meticulous when performing the tune. He may cost a little more, but he gets the job done right and makes sure everything is perfect. He knows what he is doing and doesn't rush it.
