New member and a request for help

Hi all,
I ride a 2012 versys and am having trouble locating a local shop to dyno tune my bike for a reasonable price, the only shop I found wanted 350. I recently installed a powercommander V and am looking to buy or borrow a used auto-tune module. If anyone has a unit they aren't using and are willing to sell or loan out for a week or 2 please PM me. I would gladly pay for shipping.

I'll jump in.



Unfortunately I can't offer any help though.

Welcome! Not from your area, but the typical price for a full dyno tune/custom map generally runs about $300, so that price isn't unreasonable.

Don't you have to drill a hole in the exhaust, add a bung for the sensor on an autotune?

Other than that I would ask why? This bike is not a performance bike so why spend the money on all that stuff? Kinda like making the most badd ask Cavelier. What's the point.

I've got a LeoVince slip on with a built in bung for the sensor. Why tune it? I'm not looking to squeeze every inch of torque or HP or anything, but there is a lot of disparity between the maps on the powercommander website. I also did a snorkel mod and put in a pipercross air filter. Mostly I just want it to run optimally and if I gain a little HP great. Given the plugs are kinda a PITA to check seems like an autotune module is the way to go. You're right it is not a race bike, but if we're comparing them to cars I would say closer to a mustang than a cavalier

Half the fun is tinkering with it to make it just the way you want it! Knock yourself out! I had a K75 once that I "optimized". A friend asked me why I focused on its performance..doing things like increasing the fuel pressure, polishing intake ports and sending the stock header to Jet-Hot for ceramic coating..."why don't you I just get a fast bike?" A year or so later the same friend came up to me and said
