dyno tune, good or bad??

I have heard a few people say that a dyno tune is really not worth the gain vs the stress and wear it puts on your engine? Any opinions??

I do know that some of the tire manufacturers don't recommend riding on a tire after using it to dyno a bike.

No more wear or stress than a good hard ride...that is what this bike was designed for.

Thats a fucking retard saying things like that! I have over 200+ pulls on my Turbo Hayabusa and at least 20+ on my new 10R. Like said before it's no different than the stress put on a bike going down the track or up on the back tire doing a wheelie for a couple of miles. Those are girls who feel that way! Don't worry about it! The bike can handle it and if it can't who wants a bike that breaks down doing something as little as a Dyno Pull.

^^^Although I don't have his dyno experience, I can confidentely say that nothing could be done to a bike on the dyno that I haven't already done to mine on the street and especially the track. These are race bikes with lights. They're not meant to be babied.

Although the guy you heard that from obviously doesn't have a lot of knowledge in engine tuning, he's not all together incorrect.

You see a bike tuned for racing will run more risk of decreased longevity in exchange for increased performance. A bike tuned for the street, which basically means getting an ideal a/f ratio in all situations, and will do NO harm.

I've had 3 bikes mapped so far and every time I tell my tuner, and he makes sure to ask....."How is the bike going to be ridden?". And it's written on the work order like that. If a tuner knows it's a streetbike he's going to tune is accordingly.

And besides, The ideal map is far from the Powercommander supplied maps, so you can really do nothing but positive changes with an experienced tuner.

Good Luck
