A dyno tune will get your VFC set correctly but, that's not going to guarantee the popping will be totally gone. Just the nature of the beast!

The posts I've read on this site report $400 to $500 and that is probably the case if they go to someone experienced. I paid $900 for 7 hours on the dyno tuner but I think my bike was the first Victory he had ever done.

I thought the same thing, my car tuner charges $350 and that is for the tune and allows for me to come back and get tweaks done when I add new mods. I have about 8 hours of dyno time on my car at least.
