Ok, today's my birthday and it's either a TEKA tune on the dyno at Factory, or a PCIII and I do all myself without a laptop (long USB cord from the desktop in the garage may do it).

I was talking to Raul today at factory (he did my race bike motor back when) and he says that he couldn't custom map the PCIII as well as the teka, and therefore not quite get the same numbers on the dyno. That alone sells me. He also says he'd give a deal if and when I go with exhaust to redyno and retune.

What's your opinions on the two products?

Let me make sure I have this straight ... the guy at Factory ... the company that makes the TIKA unit, is telling you that the competitor's (Dynojet) product (PCIII) isn't as good.

There's something I wouldn't expect :D

Both ways can get you where you want to be - they both change the FI mapping. Someone with a dyno and a good clue on tuning FI can get the same numbers with either tool. However, with a PCIII, you have the ability to map it, anytime you want, anywhere. Or ... you can pay the guy with the TIKA unit.

Yeah I agree, but he's a friend too, and I trust him. I just can't afford the tool yet to adjust mapping myself, but couild be had later.

Personal opinion...have the guys at Factory do it. I have always had better luck with their products and have the highest regards for those guys. Besides, as you should know (if you know the guys at Factory), Marc and his crew eat, sleep, breathe, and live to tune motorcycles properly and safely.

I actually had a very good discussion with Marc at the dealer show this year and it just reaffirmed my opinion of the quality of their methods and products.

I have never used that unit and don't know anything about it.
I put a PCIII and TRE on my 05 and it seems to be great (no dyno yet)
I also have a full Yosha TRS exhaust.
I will let you know the dyno numbers when I get them.

05 what? And could you really tell a difference in power (butt-o-meter) or just better running?

Update....

Went to Factory and Raul started the tuning. I say "started" as he they didn't actually have the new air filter in stock. Therefore, he tuned a bit rich with anicipation of the filter correcting most of it. I don't doubt his ability, but I can feel the lack of "punch" on throttle whacking at 5-6K rpm and up. Thankfully, he will throw it back on the dyno when the filter comes in and tweak it to perfection.

For now, it's nice not having the stupid off-idle hesitation that the bike came with,
