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!

Thanks for posting the dyno charts Devious2xs, I'm a little computer challenged. To say my S3 rips is an understatement. Just to keep things in perspective the last bike I owned/roadraced was a Honda CBR 600 F2 so all you guys coming off an R1 or 1000RR might not be as impressed. Throttle response is crisp, clean and immediate. All the power is very usuable across the rev range...I don't have to wring the S3's neck or downshift 3 gears to get it moving. By my financial standards (I'm remarried but make no alimony payments and have no children) all this power has come pretty cheap, between $1800 to $2000. I think I'm good with power for now, although Devi's latest projects, like the header, always keep me interested. Next, and probably last, will be sending the forks off to Traxxion.com for better springs matched to my weight, syn fork oil, a revalve if necessary and a Penske shock. Then it's off to Summit point for a track day! As always, none of this would have been possible without the generosity and tuning guruness of Devious2xs. Thanks for helping me out, Wayne.

Ron, the dyno guy, also said it was rich but not enough, in his opinion, to adversely affect driveability. It feels good to me but I'm no Val Rossi. The money I'm saving on this site is pretty eyeopening. Someone, I wonder who, had to rent a dyno for $65 an hour and spend several hours mapping a tune. I download it for nothing and go riding. What's not to like! I do wish I had more to add to the site. I 'm starting to feel like a freeloader.

Cheapbastard,
Initially I liked the Zard and seriously considered buying it. I asked my wife, whom I am almost certain has no idea where the rear brake is but who has an extensive background in art, design, form and flow how she liked the Zard and she said she liked it. Of course that immediately turned off to the Zard and I went with the Trident because I knew Devious2xs had one and was using it as a test mule and I wanted to copy what I knew would be terrific hp and tq gains.
