42 miles ago, I installed some Factory Pro Velocity Stacks, BMC "Race" Air Filter and removed the PAIR Valve (using Dan Kyle block off plates) on my '04 600RR. As a result, I decided it was time for a custom map as I also had an Akrapovic Slip-On. During all of this installation work, I also did an oil change so the bike had very fresh oil in it. This time around I put in Red Line 10W-40, as I was too lazy to get my AMSOIL 10W-40 motorcycle oil
that I've been using since I switched to synthetic.
The guy who did the tuning is Mike Velasco (http://www.brotherspowersports.com/default.asp
, an "approved Dynojet Power Commander Tuning Center"), one of 2 "reputable tuners" here in the Seattle area. Mike has worked with "Freddie Spencer. Fred Merkel, Dave Sadowski, Mike Sullivan, Larry Pegram, Buddy Antunez, Brad Hagseth, Ryan Villopoto, Kevin Urquhart, and many others!"
After installing the new goodies, I loaded the PC with an off the shelf map from the Power Commander site. It was a custom map for a "European Model, Akrapovic slip-on and stock air filter"
. I'm really kicking myself at this choice, as this map served as the baseline today prior to the custom tuning by Mike. I wish I would have loaded a "zero" map instead. Oh well I guess. I'm still very happy with the results.
Here are the results:
The baseline map was an off the shelf map from the Power Commander site for a European '03 with an Akrapovic S/O and stock air filter.
The factors that I know or can recall that may or may not be of importance:
'04 600RR with 6,297 miles on it after the tuning. It has a PC3 w/ Accelerator Pump disabled, Factory Pro Velocity stacks, BMC "Race" air filter, Akrapovic titanium slip-on, PAIR Valve removed with use of block-off plates, fresh Red Line 10w-40 oil, Pilot Powers that were 36F/35R cold (about 800+ miles on them with 3 or so track days), stock chain and gearing, Chevron 92 pump gas, and the dyno was done in 4th gear.
