Mapping is adjusting the air/fuel ratio from what it is now to what it should be accross the entire map (Throttle position vs rpm) "Tuning" as most people would use it is more akin to Carb'd bikes, where you'd get them "tuned" (balanced, set up, float levels set etc etc). These days they more refer to "tune ups" as "servicing" in bike shops. It's just a word, don't let it confuse you. have fun

Nah, let the people here know where you are and they'll all chime in and let you know the best place to go. You need a Powercommander to be able to do it as well.
