Re: Considering PCV and custom tune

In other words, there's nothing the Supertune pro does a flash or PCV/custom tune can't do better?

Re: Considering PCV and custom tune

I went ahead and scheduled at flash and dyno tune with a well reputed local.

So if anyone want to buy a supertune pro for $140 shipped let me know

Correct. Supertune is based on its in built map which you can adjust the edges of. If you need outside of that you are stuck.

Only thing my flash didnt do was reset the clock.

I see the Supertune as very old tech. So much more you can do these days.

Sportrider magazine seems to get a different curve to the Holeshot ones.http://www.sportrider.com/project-su...0fa-gsx-essive
That contradicts what you said here in post #10:


First run is with the stock map and the Supertune pro removed. Bike ran better without the Supertune in it.

Can you please clarify?

I dont understand what you are asking. Bike was so fat at idle its sounded like a V8 with a big cam. At 5% throttle is surged due to being too lean, from there up it went so fat it wouldnt tune out with adjustment.

American maps are often way to fat here.

Re: Considering PCV and custom tune

OK answer me this, even with stage 2 my 1250 doesn't seem entirely happy below 3K in anything other than 1st, maybe 2nd gear. Has anyone else noticed this and were you able to tune it out? I'm talking about a grumbling deep within the engine that makes no sense to me looking at the stock dyno chart. From 2K up there's a wave of torque but the engine doesn't really smooth out until you clear 3K. My ZX14 did the same thing.

Yes. Mine is perfectly smooth from idle through the rev range in any gear, not that I'm below 2k except from a stop. It pulls cleanly from 2k up in any gear. Since you have a stage 2 call Dale and ask him - his help comes with his products.

Re: Considering PCV and custom tune

I put the dyno tune on hold after reading so much about how Dale pretty much has it as good as you can get it. Given that the bike is in such a mild state of tune I'm questioning if it's worth $550 to have someone screw with the ignition and other parameters especially when Dale has already done the work.

Plus I already have my 2nd's out and full stage 2 installed.

I assume you are holding on to the Supertune Pro then. If not, I am interested. Don't think my PM's were getting thru

For now yes. Not sure if I can improve on it yet.
