It's 347 miles from KC but dudes a great tuner. Maybe somebody else will chime in. It sucks that dyno's are so far apart and good tuners are more rare.

There is a dyno in Sedalia Mo, I have never been there but that is the closest to KC that I know of.

ok sweet, I'll do some calling today. Thanks for your help on this guys. On a side note, I'm new to the dyno world...can a motor cycle shop with the technology do this, or is it completely different programming?

Boatman, do you know the name of the place in Sedalia?

I think it is Yeager Cycle, I know a guy that flat track's a 450r and that is where he does it but 450 is carbed so im not sure on their FI ability.

What's the typical price on this...not that it matters, but I just want to know what I'm walking into. Should I figure $100 or $500?

Just a quick update...I'm in contact with Olathe Suzuki about possibly doing this for me...I just have to talk to their guy about this when he gets back from lunch. They're dyno certified though, so it looks promising.

The guy that does the tuning said he does quads all the time. With that said, I don't know if there's a difference in tuning between the two.

You should meet me over there for the tuning. It's Tuesday from 4-5p. You can watch the process and see if it's something you want to do.
I might see about that.

Yes I went up there and got it completed. I have some really crappy cell phone video's that I was going to post of the process, but they're brutal and it really doesn't do the process justice. Everything was very professional and everything was completed in 75 minutes.

I have the paperwork at home of the gains that the machine has made. The main thing that he improved was the lower end of the machine, the fuel/air ratio, and the throttle. It used to be that even with the throttle pinned wide open, I could only get 85% of full throttle...now I get the full 100%. The fuel/air was set in 19's, he reduced it to a steady 13.0 through all gears. Then he went through the mapping process and completing changed everything.

I haven't taken the quad out yet to run it because of the rain.
