Wunderlich Performance Fuel Injection Tuner ?

I'm in the market for a GS tuner and wondered if anyone here has experience with this one.

I'm pretty sure you can do a search on "performance controller" or "Wunderlich" and get a boatload of results.

I've seen threads on it here many times...


cheers!

I've got one hooked to my 2007 1200GS, I love it. I have no cat and an aftermarket exhaust, it really helped out through the entire rpm range, and with throttle response. I'd get one again in a second.

Thanks for that input!

I'm in the market for one too.

I recently installed a slip on, and the throttle response is not so great at low idle, cracked open, in traffic stuff. I've also notice my MPG has gone down by 2~3 MPG, which surprised me. Didn't think that would happen until I put a controller box on it, and bumped up the fuel a little.

I have a buddy who used the Wunderlich and was happy with it.

I've also heard that the Wunderlich unit is by Dobeck Performance. But there isn't an application for the R1200GS on their site..

The best (only) price I've seen is $275 from Wunderlich. Has anyone else seen better prices?

Yes, mine says "Dobeck" on it somewhere, but I'm afraid they're only available via Wunderlich (http://www.wunderlichamerica.com/mm5...e=R1200GS07-U), I actually purchased mine used from another inmate here for $200.00, you can find them from time to time but they go VERY quickly. My fuel economy dipped from 41mpg to 38mpg with this mod, but it could have something to do with my excessive "testing" of the new found power, ROFL.

Isn't a Power Commander a more advanced and better unit at similar cost?

Eddie,

I believe the Dynojet Power Commander has a limited number of "maps" available for download, whereas the Wunderlich box allows the end user to custom tune the fuel delivery for his/her personal preference. If I wanted to put my bike on a dynojet and have someone tune it, I'd probably try to find a Dynojet tuner and use the Power Commander. I like the flexibility of the Wunderlich unit, just my personal preference.

I have the PCIII and you can adjust the maps using a PC. You can also set the target A/F ratio, which is really slick.

I paid $249 for my unit from customdynamics.com The Dobeck unit works well on my 2007 GS1200 and full aftermarket exhaust.
Make sure its the generation 3, I believe.
I bought it about 3-4 months ago.
