Tuning options??? ECU Flash or Power commander?

Don't know too much about the tuning process. I've had my 2016 zx10r for around a month now. Just got the 600 mile service done. Almost done with the break in period.

I had a two brothers exhaust installed on day one. Would like to know the best options for tuning the bike.

Ecu flash, Power commander etc.

Is the Autotune with the power commander worth the extra $?

Thank you in advance for any input.

Forget the power commander. That only does fuel changes. There's so much more that can be done from hacking the ECU with a reflash. If you don't have access to a dyno or just want the easy approach then get the auto tune with the flash kit.

Best bet is sending in the ecu for a reflash

like 2 Wheel DynoWorks ECU Flash for example. or schnitz, or graves uses ftecu but it's not so great at the moment, and i'm sure guhl's working on something

Shut up and ride.

Woolich Racing has the flashing kits and autotune kits available as well. There are some benefits of having the kits yourself. Also, if you don't know what you're doing, we can assist you via TeamViewer, copy and paste maps or you can bring the hardware in and any shop with a dyno should be able to handle tuning it.

ECU flash should give you around 185-192 RWHP with just slipon cat delete..The new 2016 has lots of potential ..

SAE maybe. It's making 190-195 on a lot of dynos after JUST a flash in STD correction. See Justin from Woolich; his was 194 after flash. AKRA has their making 183 STD stock, no flash. Brock's has it making 182 STD stock, no flash.

Wrong.

That bike was 100% stock; EUR/AUS version.
