Smile My Dyno Run Yesterday

Two Brothers CF M5 V.A.L.E. Oval S/O, stock air filter
Custom PCIII Map from www.rentonmotorcycles.com
Runs so much smoother across the entire throttle now, it's like a whole new bike.

I didn't have a stock run performed on the bike. I installed the pipe a couple of weekends ago and have been running on the map specified at the dynojet site.

As for the graph correction, I don't know. I'm sure you could send them an email and ask though.

The map you were running must have been abosulte crap then and shows just what you're looking at doing by going down that road. Good work.

You chose RMC to do the mapping?

Should've went with Mike Velasvo.

That was a typo :p

I've heard of horror stories about RMC's service department, that's all. I've had both George Dean and Mike Velasco tune my bike, and Mike has earned my repeat business without a doubt even though he's further and charges a little more. Mike just did my bike last week, and I'm extremely happy!

Well that's interesting info, but my experiences with Larry at RMC have been fine. Horror stories about service techs abound and I suspect some are true, others maybe not so much. Getting to know somebody and asking lots of questions goes a long ways no matter who you're dealing with.

In this particular case I'm happy with the result and would make the same choice again.

Yeah Birdman, too bad you live so far away otherwise I would have called you first.

Maybe when I finally put on my velocity stacks and need to visit the dyno again I'll retrofit floats and a prop to my bike. ;^)

Always wanted to visit there anyway.

Tony,

We should swap bikes and ride each other's bike :)

But I'm on stock gearing so your bike will be vastly different!

I like the idea, but after too many "incidents" I have a taken an oath to never loan or borrow a motorcycle. (not that I'm questioning your abilities, or mine, it's just a personal policy I keep)

I'm up for a ride, but I think motorcycles are best treated like toothbrushes when it comes to the notion of sharing. ;^)

With the exception of my dirt bikes, which I've been known to use to introduce a noob to the joy of motorcycling. Besides, I think some amount of dirt experience is just good all around for any rider.

But thanks for the offer Dude.
