Nels put my '07 990 Adv on his dyno at 2 Wheel Dyno Works (2wheeldynoworks.com) in Kirkland, WA. His computer was having trouble with TuneECU so we used my laptop & cable. Got about 8% horsepower increase and 16% torque. Gas mileage remains near the same. Could have probably gotten more power, but wanted to keep the gas mileage.

I wasn't looking (necessarily) for more power, just wanting to smooth out the twichyness and a flat spot from 3,000 rpm going to wot. Nels did that in spades. Previously I had to really jerk on the bars to get the front up by throttle alone. Now it is hard to keep it on the ground. More importantly, the throttle curve is very smooth and consistent. Much more ridable (even at very low throttle opening). Probably the best money I've spent on this bike yet.

Bike has a pair of FMF Q4s, gear selector sensor disconnected, sas gone and secondary butterflys gone.

A plug for Nels - I didn't know Nels previously, but he seems to be known on the PNW road racing circuits. Has 3 dynos and been doing dyno work for 11 years. He has a dyno in a trailer and travels to a lot of races and events in the PNW. As others have said, his work is magic and his prices very reasonable.

That's great news about 2wheeldynoworks.com. I'm gonna have to get some time there.

So groundhog, the twitchy throttle is gone, or attenuated? I appreciate the HP and torque, but I mostly want a smooth throttle.

Damn you guys are hard on an old man. I had to look that one up (attenuated).

First, I have the G2 throttle tube which seemed to help. Second, I hurt my hip (and I'm old and fat) so didn't do much off road riding on the way home. With that said, I think it helped the twitchy a bunch (maybe not cured it). (see, I can talk without having to use those big words )

The throttle is very smooth and on an even curve all the way through, which it wasn't (especially down low) before. However it is still hard to sneak up on the power from a closed throttle. Once the initial little hit of power is felt the rest is very linear compared to being almost unpredictable as it was BN (before Nels).

All in all, well worth the time and money (to me anyway).

My bike has an HT racing 2 into 1 adapetor and a FMF slip on for an R6. I really like the extra fuel the aux tank provides so I will not trade it in for the extra power of a 2 into 2 system. I saw a 2 into 2 system on a Aprila Tuono that both pipes dumper on the left side, it has me thinking of this for the KTM.....

I will post my dyno results when I get back next week.

From one old man to another,sorry, I guess I read too much.

Thanks for the followup. I'm glad Nels was amenable (willing to work with you(couldn't help myself)) to getting your bike in. I'm out of the country for the next 3 weeks, so can't wait to try to get in with him with my tuneecu. I'm back to a stock 07-08 program that helped some over the shitty 06 Akra map. Still moderately twitchy tho. Other than dual FMFs and a G2, I'm still stock. Hoping to get some miles on tomorrow to check a mpg baseline before loading the updated Akra map. Haven't had time to strip out the extras that we get with the bikes. I stripped it all out of my 950 and was very happy.

Those secondaries look really easy to pull. Tempting. And my block off plates are sitting there ready to go.

Thanks again.

Kenbike, I've got a 2-1 with a wings ready to go, just not much time to play with the bike. That said, I'm not sure I'm gonna put the extra tank on when I try the 2-1. I'm kinda cheap and a couple of Rotopaxs do the same thing, just not as conveniently. If I find that I lose mpg for a smooth throttle, maybe I'll reconsider.

What do you think about this?

Thanks !!
I think what bouboule is asking is the same thing I've been wondering. I have an 08 adv, I'd like a few more ponies and a new map. So theoretically I should be able to drop in Super Duke cams, then copy and paste Power-tripp's current model year map into an 07-08 map and upload to bike. Anyone see any reason why this won't work?

Adventure Dakar map...!

Hey all!

I'm looking to install the Adventure Dakar map on my 2010 ADV. Could someone provide me with it? I know that those bikes run much smoother than the others, so I was wondering if you own or know someone that owns a Dakar and if you could read it off the bike...

Thanks a lot guys! Keep tuning!!

Hi, thanks for your impression! You have a perfect bike now.... what's your bike's year/model??

Good to know there is someone nearby. Once I finish modifying my bike I'm going to call him up and see what he can do

Checked the TuneECU list and the Dakar is not listed. It was my understanding the Dakar and the R use the same map. The 2011 maps are listed and they are supposed to be better than the previous. The difference between the R and standard is that last part of the secondary map goes to 100% on the R but only 70% on the standard.

Wayne felt the 2into 1 really limits my top end.
A little off topic and probably too late, but the 950 HOW contains hotwire instructions for those times when a key is needed.

Sorry if this has been beat to death but does the 990 use a gear selector to pinch off the power at lower gears?
This is the first I've heard of this.

BTW, I installed the 990R US Map on my 2010 Adventure (White ABS) today. Then I did the 15 minutes routine, which I didn't do the last time with the 2011 Map, and it's nastyyyyyyy!!!

I don't know if it was related to mine not doing the 15 min thingy, but with the 2011 Map, I think there was some knocking in the engine, way down low, like below 3000 RPMs. With this map, smooth smooth smooth down low, and a huge power surge when you twist that right hand grip!!

Don't know if things would have been different if I would have done the 15 min idle...?? But when I used to twist the throttle, there was no way that I would have done a wheely!! But now,it's a whole different story!!
