I've been doing some looking around for a dyno tuner and found these guys. Anybody out there used them for a tune on their victory that would like to share your opinion?

Thanks.


*EDIT - My mistake...they only have a mobile dyno that stops by once a year....Dr Dyno.

There are canned tunes for the PC-V, if that's what you have, for just about every combination of mods. If you can find someone with the same or very close to what you have; maybe they can share it with you.

Yes, every engine is a little different, and to get the very best tune; it will need to go through the dyno tune process but you can get 9/10 of the way there with one that is close or the same as yours. In fact, for some people, this tune is just fine for them. For others who don't like to leave anything on the table; a full dyno tune by a true professional Victory tuner is all that is acceptable.

There are some tunes in my sig line under Free Service Manuals. You're welcome to try them. Just make sure to save what you currently have so you can revert back to it if none of them work out.

Thanks for the info BBob. Been thinking of putting the pcv in myself like you said. I would be curious to see what my bike is now on a dyno though before a tune for better comparison. that was one of my questions about the pcv, if it will allow me to save my current setup. so before i take it in i can put it on that setting for a baseline?

I'm sure there's a way but I haven't had to mess with my PC-V other than to try new tunes since it was installed nearly 6 years ago so I'm not the best person to ask.

I also run an Auto Tune Module that compensates somewhat for changing elevation and seasons. That's purely optional. I don't think it gives a very good tune on its own either. I've gotten better results from trying out the other tunes folks have provided. I've never had it dyno tuned but it pulls like a team of Clydesdale's going up a hill generally leaving everyone in the dust behind me. Hehehe; sometimes it really irritates guys who think they have a badass car or truck because they'll zoom up behind me after I settle into the speed limit.

hmmm. there's an idea. maybe i should go the route of an auto tune since i'm having trouble getting to a reputable tuner? i'll have to start doing some research on that.

what mods have you done to bike. If its just exhaust and air filter you'll be fine. Right now you might be at high 80's or 85 horse
