1. Does or can the Maximus help the tuning professional get a 'better' tune than a PCV? I had a dyno tune about 43K miles ago. Reinstalling the oem timing wheel would eliminate the chance of the variable timing wheel slipping. Plus the elimination of the PCV box under the left side cover would be nice. But then reinstalling the oem O2 sensors clutters things up a bit.
2. Would or could my CCT benefit from going from my current variable timing wheel/PCV set-up to a Maximus tune?
Its a cleaner install Mark. No ATS. The Maxiumus still has to be dyno tuned by a shop or using the Maximus version of the Auto Tune. The whole package will run around 7-800 bucks. From what I understand, you can use other profiles as well. I have ridden a bike with it and it is a very nice tune. Nice smooth low to high end and you can add the 6,200 rpm shift in all gears. With the Maximus, there is a guy who sends a laptop with the autotuning tools you use and ship back when its done.
Or Kevin, Rylan etc...can all dyno tune it with the Maximus. I test rode one of Kevins Maximus tuned bikes another guy I know has...and man it was nice.
I bought this up on another site before the tuners started with them and got flamed. I have tuned bike ECU's prior with Triumph, Yamaha, and HD and have always been an advocate of that method.
Now its the rage. For good reason. No extra wiring harnesses everywhere, no ATS, and you can change the tune when you want.
However, if you already have the PCV and ATS etc....unless you are like me and don't mind peeing away a few bucks for a cleaner setup...the PCV and ATS are fine. Proven, do the job well.
The nice part of that is...for people with a tighter budget there will be a lot of used PCV and ATS wheels along with autotunes for sale!
