Default Auto tune

I have the ability to purchase an dynojet AT-300 for $237. Is it worth having one? I have the ability to borrow one to actually tune my bike this spring. Just trying to decide if it is a worth while purchase.

Thanks

I just plan on doing everything twice when I start it and that way when it takes 3 times to get it right I'm only half as mad.

I have PC-5 / AutoTune / AT-300 because there is no DYNO facilities here....

If I were living where your living I would find a DYNO and be done with it...

I agree, dyno tune if you can. I read recently that the Auto-Tune modules are not doing that great of a job anyway.
A buddy of mine spent big bucks to put a PC Auto-Tune setup on his Ultra Classic and he still has to bring it to the Dyno for touch-ups

You read that, huh? Your buddy doesn't know how to use his auto-tune module.

The A/T will give you exactly as good a tune as the time you spend learning and understanding what the unit can do and how to use it.

Anyone spending the money to purchase the auto tune module AND paying for dyno time too... well... (don't make me say it).

If you are not willing to put forth the effort to learn the device and use it to get the best tune it can give you, then don't get one.

Of course he doesn't HC, I mean we're talking about a performance item here and we all know the rest of us morons could never do anything right..... Unlike you who is the be all, end all of performance knowledge.

No reason to get your ass up on your shoulders... Your responses are just a little bit inappropriate for what was said... like when someone steps on your foot and you respond by punching them in the face.

You seem to forget that people who read these forums are friends of mine, like in real life, we ride together and hang out, so your implication that I have some huge ego will be met with ill-concealed laughter.

Some people talk shit out their asses and make assertions about things they know little about. So, I refuse to apologize for having some 1st hand knowledge and experience and I'm not sure why this chafes your ass so badly... but ... I'm not one to say "I read" or "I heard" because that would be repeating hear-say. What I would do is FIND OUT if what I read/heard was actually true before I repeated it as if it should be believed by others.

How many times have you read in a post of mine something like, "You should talk to (insert expert Vic tuner's name here) because I'm not a professional"? Or seen people put my name and Kevin's in the same sentence only for me to post "Don't lump me in there, Kevin does this for a living, and I do not"? Nothing but ego, right?
