Power Commander V and custom dyno tune $285...
Try again unless Big Dave owns and operates his own dyno shop as well.

Your bike reminds me of my last GS....basically the same build....an outstanding motorcycle for sure.

What a beautiful bike! Top-shelf components across the board. I hope that in 6 months all the hard to clean places are full of road grime and you need a new memory chip in your camera.

It is time for a bit of a "refresh" on my '09. Looking hard at the Ohlins and your steering damper has me wondering as well...

Yeah the Dyno Tune runs about another $300 in addition to the cost of the power commander. Some shops charge more, some less.

Its actually pretty funny, thats exactly how this build started, looking at bikes on here and doing the math. I must have built it on an excel spread sheet twelve times before I ever bought the bike!

I run a damper on all my bikes and have the GPR on my ZX-14 as well, just seems to smooth out those "Oh F@(!" situations and avoid a good tank slapper or worse.
