A properly tuned bike sounds crisp and responsive. Like I said save up and do it right. The bike runs fine now,put off the instant gratification and wait. You really do get what ya pay for.
Didn't mean to offend you.
Like I said, I'm new to all this hooha.
And my perception was that the gizmo just needs to be plugged in,
then a file dropped into it. I'm sorry if that is not the case.
I feel like I've mentioned before I'm not looking for every ounce of power.
I have no doubt that a properly tuned stage 1 will be the pants of one fitted with Xieds.
Now all this talk has really got my head spinning.
3 things I'm mulling over now;
1. Adding a slipon with no other changes isn't going to melt my new motorcycle?
2. How the crap do you decide what tuner?
3. Someone mentioned their stage 1 cost 6 bills,
that seems awfully cheap. Is there an average $ here?
Maybe if I start wrapping my head around some numbers,
I can start to justify it to myself and the old lady.
