Tuning program options - August 17, 2008, 10:17 PM

i overheard a couple guys talking at the last TGIF meet in greenbelt and one guy mentioned that he got his bike tuned without an aftermarket program (i.e. power commander, etc...) the bike he was speaking about is a 06GSXR so heres my question, is there a way to tune a bike without purchasing an aftermarket program? if so, how is this done? i just want to educate myself, i have a pcIII on the way. thanks in advance

the PCIII comes with dynojet software in order to view maps and tune if you wish. A proper tune requires a dyno and a probe that measures the air fuel ratio...that program is the same thing that comes with the PC

i understand that, i had a power commander on my old K1-1000 but i heard that there is a way to tune bikes with just the "stock ecu" and "some software" thats what the guy was saying anyway... the only mention of Power commander was "junk that thing, its not needed" that statement made me very curious cause until now ive never heard of tuning that way.

Yes there is. You can take it in to a Suzuki dealership and they can do it for about $25. It's the same thing a power commander does, but it's permanent. If you want it adjusted, u'd have to take it back each time. Its just a way of saying your cheap...I did it, lol.

I guess try and think of it as an ecu flash for a car. It's not going to be a "custom" tune ala PC3 w/hours on the dyno. It should be roughly in the ballpark for whatever your mods are.

I know for triumphs they have 4 levels of tune that the dealership can do for you.


I believe i can see the future;
because everyday i repeat the
same routine.
