I would just start calling the motorcycle shops around there..... In the mean time..... Smell for "wet exhaust gas" smell... Like when your behind an old car.... This is not stone cold... But It is however an indicator....towards a rich running bike... and no back firing.

Dyno

Give me a "duh" Zaner. But I found the same site about 2 minutes after I posted the question. Making an apt when I return from Moabia. They told me it costs 250, they keep the bike for 2 days and of course they do custom mapping.
This should be an education for me. Has anyone else done this and do they have mapping suggestions?

I was in Chicago back in 96. A friend of mine had work done on a gixxer 750. The shop that did the work was called Franx Machine Worx, The guy knew what he was doing... After the gixxer was put together, the bike was ridden to a sportsbike shop where the guys tuned the bike doing dyno runs. I'll PM you the name of the owner of Franx machine worx, if you can get a hold of him, he could point you in the right direction.

Dyno testing

Dropped off the 800 yesterday at Chicago Performance. All the sport bike guys were admiring my bike, or maybe that was my imagination. They said they would "optimize" my PC-V and, no, I'm not allowed to watch. I'll do my best to report back what they did. Probably Monday. Paul

Deal breaker for me...... That's pitiful..... Specially when they are writing software maps... That if done wrong could destroy the motor...and Warranty. Worst case scenario.... but never the less I need to see the a/f ratio's.... I have seen too many shops done bad dyno's..... Hopefully this is a good shop.....and all will be fine..... Are they tuning for max. power...or max. Fuel efficiency..... since you cant have both.... or are they dual loading...and will show you how to switch maps...... Sorry if I confused you... But just trying to help.....

Dyno

Ken at Chicago Performance "optimized" my GS. The printer was broken so he is sending the results, but he apologized for only being able to report a 3hp increase over stock. The bike runs pretty much the same as before, which is to say terrific since the 4 mods(Remus header, Akro pipe, Uni Filter and PC-V). So I don't know if it was all worth it if adding hp was my goal. But the bike FEELS quicker, faster and more powerful in virtually every gear, even sixth has added power, so I won't find it always necessary to downshift when passing.
Next? Scott's damper and a Shorei battery.

Did he release the Dyno graphs..... Before and after..... It would be awesome if you could post the HP and TQ graphs here..... I for one would really like to see them.....

I'd suggest you pass on the shorai battery. The weight savings isnt worth the chance of getting stranded on a trip & difficulty in charging it. (you can only use a shorai charger). I've seen a few fail at the track on trackdays.

I went with a deka. Happy with it.

Oh & glad someone reported on the PCV. I've been waiting to see the results.

Maybe post it up in a new thread?

You can charge these batteries with a dumb charger ie one that doesn't desuphate, pulse, recond etc. Just charges.

Does anyone know the decibel ratings of the pipes discussed in here? Calgary is going to start ticketing for excessively loud autos and bikes. I'd like a pipe that will allow a balanced pannier system but don't want anything louder (much) than stock.
Thanks

Thanks Erling,
When will you go into production for your latest evil project??
Loud or not I'll take one.
I'm almost tempted to start playing with CF myself...or perhaps you could make me a replacement body for this
