Is a custom map worth the money?

I have a 05 and just installed: akrapovic slip, BMC racefilter, and PCIII. The people i bought it from preloaded a map for me before they sent it out. After riding it for a 500 miles i feel like it should have more power. Has anyone payed the extra money to dyno tune their bike? If so did you get better performance?

I really think it's worth the money. The mapping is custom for YOUR bike. So you'll get optimal gains in performance. Though I havent mapped mine yet (bmc race filter, arrow full exhaust, pc3) I am making it a point to get it done very shortly. I will say that the generic map online seems pretty effective for my setup. I can only imagine what a custom map will feel like.

I just dont think it's worth the prices a lot of places charge...$350+ is crazy.

Certainly worth the money. Did a full system then a downloaded map. 12K was really lean and I could easily feel it. Custom tune and I was good to go.

Worth every cent. The maps that are loaded on or downloaded from their website are garbage. Just make sure you are done with performance mods before you get it done so you dont need another.

I think it is as well. Out here though they charge like 3-$400 for a dyno+tune. It's nuts. Plus they do altitude changes to it.

Where in Seattle did you get a custom map for $110? What's the shop's name. I need to get my bike a custom map.
What were your before and after numbers?
