A custom map is only good for the bike it was designed for. If someone sent you their custom map is might be as close or as far as any other downloadable map. Find someone in your area to map your bike for you.

It wouldnt be very 'custom' if someone else gave you the map from their bike...

Like everyone said, a good map is only good for the bike that was put on the dyno. Elevation, fuel, miles, engine condition....so many factors play into it.

Plus I paid $300 for my maps, why should I send them to anyone for free?

Get your own map done bro...it's well worth the expense.

You paid $300 bucks for mapping...and why wouldn't you send them to someone for free? Not like it's a copyrighted material that you're collecting income off of...

toyotafj40's, just like NRR said, get a custom map for YOUR bike for best results.

How is he stuck up? We all put a lot of money into our bikes including getting them tuned and mapped. Why should someone pay $300 to get it mapped just so you don't have to? Unless your cashing up a little dough to the person your getting it from, i would say screw u too basically.

Get it done right and take it to a Tuner.

If I paid $300 for a map I would give it to someone else in a heartbeat... Help a fellow member out... Not if he was calling people bitches though.

Wow... I don't even let my friends around town use any of my sh*t.. cuz it's exactly that... MY sh*t.. If I want something, I don't go asking them for handouts, why should I give them... and do what everyone else says.. get a custom map done.. if you can afford a 8000$ bike.. I'm sure you can afford a 250$ map... It's basically the same price as a jacket.. or helmet.. or don't you have those either? Someone wana let him borrow thiers :)

i got a question about custom maps actually!

when u go to get a custom map, what exactly do they do for you? i appreciate that every bike that comes off the production line is a little different and they have all been ridden (worn) a little different, so....

they make a map best for actual bike, to suit ure engine?

and also, do they map your bike to react the way you want it too? cos if i had one done i would want it as smooth as possible?

thanks in advance!

yeah thats basically what they do, they tuned the fuel map to your bike specifically, changing the numbers to run a good a/f ratio and make good power and torque.

thats why it takes a while and sometimes several runs, because they somtimes to make the right power and give it proper delivery they may try adding, then that may not work so they take away, and do this throught the entire rev range, sometimes they gotta add more here, less there, lean it out a tad there.. thats what your paying for, to spin their dyno and get thier expertise.

If you and i had a dyno and tools to do im, im sure we god build an incredible map in 2 days of dyno testing, but thats not very cost effective or realistic is it?

no not at all, there are very little dyno's around by me, is it a mechanical job? or is it just gettin to know the dyno equipment, cos it could b a bit of a money spinner for me, getin a dyno.....something to consider anyway.

that may seem a bit mad, me knowin nufin at the mo, but id make sure i did my research and obtain the knowledge etc

it'll be worth it dude, youll gain a little power burn a little cleaner, maybe improve gas mileage in the process, and the improved throttle response and smoothness alone is worth it IMO.

nah, i meant buying a dyno machine, for me to dyno other peoples bikes...is it a in depth mechanics job or could i just get used to the equipment and do it? if its just computer settings it very achieveable isn't it!
