I have been wanting to get the tune done for a while, but was waiting for an "off season" deal. I don't know if it was that much of a deal, but I'm happy with the numbers.
I have not had much chance to feel how well it performs yet. I rode it home 90 miles after the tune, but it was interstate and raining :(
I thought the numbers seemed a bit high for what I have done (de-baffled stock pipes, LLoydz Air Filter, PCV, LLoydz ATW at +4), but I know dyno to dyno varies.
I was shocked at how low the stock AFRs were!
Sorry about the crappy image quality, but their printer was nearly out of ink, and I had to jack around with it to get it this good.
I think I am done with it for now. Just wish I had the nice weather back to enjoy it....
Before A/F, PCV (had pipes, and ATW) 86.8Hp 106 ft-lbs
After 94.1Hp 109 ft-lbs



PS: a BIG THANKS to Toejam (Jim) for giving me a ride to and from getting it done!!!

Well, I'd feel extremely good about those results, after seeing this. It cost the owner about 3500 dollars, to build his 2012 road Glide to Stage IV....

and these are his words.....

2012 RGU with Vance and Hines Power Duals and classic oval mufflers. Added a Street Legal Stage 4 kit with Screaming Eagle tuner. The guy who tuned it was pretty impressed. I just can't wait to ride it. Of course it's raining and I don't want to open it up on wet streets. Lol. Never fails. Clear all week and raining today. Lol.

That is a very lovely, flat torque curve. That's the beauty of the stock cams. While they don't make the huge top end numbers, they do provide near perfect linear power throughout the band. As someone who spends more time dicing up roads that require a lot of throttle finesse than running WFO, I'm a fan of your dyno sheet.

I was kinda surprised to see that you lost a little at the low end. Not that it'd make a lot of difference, but I do wonder if you couldn't diddle around with the fueling down there to get it back? Your setup obviously has the capacity to make that power down low as proven by your initial dyno.

why didn't they move the wheel to +6 or +8 you do have a sweat running bike now.

I did think it was a bit odd, loosing a bit on the bottom end. I don't think I will notice the loss in normal riding, so I probably won't mess with what is otherwise a good looking tune.
I was thinking about getting cams too, but the stage 1 numbers look so good I will hold off a bit. In normal riding I do prefer the steady surge rather than the big hit on the top end anyway.

They didn't have a lot of experience with the ATW, but I told them it was at +4 and they left it there. I may bump it myself and see what the butt dyno says thumb up
I don't want to risk detonation, but I don't think it will hurt to try. We have ready access to 93 octane fuel.
