Devious2xs was generous enough to loan me his TuneBoy cable and email me a couple tunes. Thanks to my computer wiz landlord everything was downloaded without too much trouble. Just make sure the kill switch is turned off...we would still be standing there scratching our heads if Devious2xs didn't think of asking about it.

The bike starts quickly. Throttle response is immediate and crisp. There don't appear to be any lean or rich spots anywhere. Acceleration is eye opening. I couldn't be happier.

I hope to get some dyno time the first of next month. Until then my butt dyno says the tune is worthy of increased pucker factor.

Is this Devious2xs guy superhero nice or friggin' what!

Now you are making me blush. :embarassed:

I just wanted to get you better tuned than you were after the header work. And it didn't cost me anything but a bit of time.

Helping others go faster is its own reward. We need to be able "rip the lungs" out of the Ducati Monsters. LOL

+1 some great reads.
I was kinda OK with standard but I'm converted to the tuning thing.
I was going to go PCommander but after reading the Dev man posts have bought a Tuneboy and cant wait to see the results.

You're right Monkey...I was never gonna play with the tuning, but I got in on the groupbuy with you. The package arrived yesterday and its installed and ready to go. I gotta find out WTF to do now! ;D

I have some friends with other types of bikes who are seriously jealous of Tune Boy capabilities vs. PC.!

I did note that the new GSXR has a 3 position -on the fly adjustment for mapping now, interesting and could be trouble if someone switched in mid corner or something.

Poor bastards!
Or you will be poor soon. ;)

Trust me, I know this illness well.
The smell of race fuel, the sound of a well tuned engine at full song, the sight of smoking rubber... These are the things that fill my dreams. ;D

Hey Legman

My Tuneboy is on its way from OZ. I'm getting my lap top tomorrow so should be all go over the weekend. I'm just not sure which tune to use for my bike. Precat out Zard slip on, no DB killer and SAI present...

I've told a pal with a Huyabusa all about Tuneboy v PC; he's green with envy. Cool for us S3 types, unique bike, loads of street cred. Why ride Japanese??

pm AlaskaS3, sounds very similiar to his setup, except I think he has removed the SAI. I think him and Devi fine tuned that thang. I'm planning on stealing his tune whenever I git my dang precat out! :violent1:

We can modify an SAI tune (or non-SAI tune - it will simply not turn on the SAI solenoid) to work for you - just like we did for AlaskaS3. We start slow and make changes as you ride the bike and give me feedback. We can get you close this way. PM me for more info.

If you ever decide to get the bike on a dyno in the UK, Tony Woodhouse and TTS are both experienced with Tuneboy and Triumphs. But we can get you close without it.

I really need to work on a Zard equipped bike sometime.

Cata's got the tune from AlaskaS3, I asked him to add it to the upload section last night.... :drink:

I'm guessing it'll get all of us with the Zard/modded header fairly close to where we need to be.

It will still need a bit of work.

What Alaska did was just the first step (granted, a big one), for the Zard. It will still need some work.

Hey Cheap
I guess with Dev's help we'll have something soon for the Zard clan.

Keep it quiet and whisper but we know Yella is best.

I received an email from TightTL today - he had his bike on the dyno again, with the new tune. I am not going to let the cat out of the bag, but very impressive! :-X

Last year, in the first "how much is enough" thread, many said they would be happy with a given amount of power and torque. It looks like TightTL has reached these numbers. ;D

Well done!
