Default Question on upgrades and if tune needed before dyno?

OK just sold my old suzuki for a few pennies and I am going to be buying Lloydz cams and a new air box (not sure if torque tubes or just the lloydz air box). I already have the adjustable timing gear in. I have the swept pipes that I pulled the baffles out and installed some lloydz aftermarket baffles.

I plan on installing the cams myself. Question is, can I ride it modded with the stage 1 tune to lloydz? It's probably like 3 hours from my house. I will have him install a fuel commander and tune the bike there, just trying to save on labor.

Thanks

With cams installed and an airbox ? I wouldn't , in fact it may not run efficiently enough to get to Lloyds .... The stock , stage 1 tune are way too lean for what your doing ... I would install the PCV while you have it all apart (Much easier) then download the basic map supplied for models with cams , then go see Lloyd .... Kyle @ KMC in Westerly RI is one of the best tuners on the planet , and actually does Tunes for Lloyd . He may be closer to you too . Good Luck !

Why not just install the fuel commander too? Easier to do than cams. Buy it from LLyods and have him install a map that should get you in good enough shape to make it to his shop.

Install the PC-V ask Kyle or Rylan or Lloyd for a base tune and you should be good. If you can wrench then the installation of the PCV is cake.

Just install the power commander your self. Lloydz can get you a tune that will be close enough with a tune emailed to you to ride it there. Or u can buy the auto tune and set the tune up your self. It's not hard to do.

Good thinking on the tuner....I didn't know they would supply a "base" tune....that's the route I will go!

Power commander V
part number 19-002 for the 106ci hammer 2009? Webiste pull down has a hammer option but for the older bikes...the 19-002 lists for 106ci 2009 and newer bikes. Correct?

Yes , 19-002 model . when you download the software there will be a map available for 106 with cams , that will get you in the right direction , you really just want to avoid being lean .
