I’m not an expert but I’ll share the strong opinion of two race tuners in the PAC NW who have built championship winning bikes. Don’t go the PC or Bazaaz route. Find someone competent who can flash the stock ECU. Dan Zlock has a ton of experience building race bikes and in his experience, piggyback systems can be really unreliable when you don’t expect it.

Remember that all you’re really doing on the dyno is tuning the Air/fuel ratio to where you want that to be. There isn’t really a range for that - either it’s optimal or it isn’t - so find someone who knows the numbers and has a dyno they have experience with. One other thing to note: don’t go to someone offering a “opening special on our new dyno”. You’re rolling the dice with someone who doesn’t have a ton of experience on their equipment. It also goes without saying that you need to do the mods first because when you change the exhaust / velocity stacks etc you alter the air flow, so you need to alter the fueling accordingly so don’t put your bike on the dyno until you’ve done the mods.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the info and yeah I'll look around for a respectable tuner who can flash the ecu. An I don't plan to do this until all the mods are installed.

Also I'm hearing that PC's seem to fail a lot.
Torque moves you, horsepower keeps you going.
