Anyone familiar with MRP Motorsports? - October 17, 2018, 07:57 PM

I have Daytona cams in my 2010 Street Triple and a tune that I sort of hacked together by copying the fuel and timing tables from a 2008 map into a 2010 map. The bike runs pretty well, but has a pretty nasty on/off throttle that shows up at highway speeds and occasionally lower speeds.

Anyway, I asked around on triumph675.net for tuners in the area that do TuneECU tunes and MRP Motorsports is the only hit I got. A tune is $400-500 which is just a touch higher than I expected ($300-400). Anyone familiar with this shop?

Since you are in Va. I would recomend RnR cycles. Rick is a current Racer and tuner. Some of his Techs are here on the message board.

I never paid that much for my tunes at Ricks... I used MRP also and the tune was not that high also. Unless they are including a ECU Flash and dyno tune.

I did my own ECU flash (Rick and Kenny/MRP) use Woolich flash...maybe other programs also...

Call Rick and tell him what you are trying to accomplish.
He tuned my last 4 bikes.

Well, TuneECU is a piece of software that can edit the fuel and timing maps on the factory ECU. Just plug into the OBD2 port. That's how I've tuned my own bike and how Kenny @ MRP would do it.

I was trying to figure a way to justify the $400-$500 price tag... I can only see it being that high with a full on Flash.

If its strictly dyno tuning... its a tad on the higher side. Mines has been high $200 to low to mid $300s.

I use MRP, great tuning and master Ohlins, Penske , GP tech, and K-tech suspension setup. Prices are reasonable and he's quick.

I haven't done any "real" tuning with TuneECU, but it allows you to make changes to the tables directly, and in great detail. I tuned the fueling and timing on my car via a couple of piggyback controllers, but they had all of three buttons and had only 3 adjustable options to tweak. That wasn't very expensive. I'd think tuning via a PowerCommander would be $200-$300.

I may tell him to keep it in the $400 range. It's possible the bike is already set up relatively well for the Daytona cams since I'm borrowing a tune that worked on my 2008 bike. I just want to get rid of the annoying throttle response that doesn't plague my 2008.

I took the bike up to MRP on Saturday. Kenny is a nice guy who obviously has a lot of experience, but wasn't condescending when talking to a relative noob. He met me at my level of knowledge and did a good job explaining what he did. Took about 4 hours. 4 bills and some change. The bike is smoother now in transition which is what I wanted, and he found some welcome power in the midrange where the mix was way too rich (below 11 briefly). I'd recommend his shop.

Did you guys use TuneECU or another software?

Rick at RNR just tuned my bikes and they are running great. Just got back from Daytona and they were hauling ass all weekend. Zero problems.

I've had good experiences at MRP and RnR, but have not had any tuning done at either shop. Glad your experience was good!
