    Just a quick update from previous threads & you will have seen my posts re spending £830 on Brentune that didn’t work, once I showed them the comparison Dyno runs (stock v their tune) showing that there was no difference and if anything the low load fuelling was worse they ignored all my emails/calls, I took this up with Barclaycard which thankfully I paid through, sent them all of the email threads and Dyno graphs and Barclaycard has now fully reimbursed me with an extra £50 customer relations gift. Oh they also paid for the Dyno run. Happy days and just a reminder to pay for anything substantial through a credit card  :169:

    Save yourself the bother and fit a PC, i’ve Only tried to beat the system once with a Rexxer map on my K1200 sport and that will be going the PC route..I really should have known better  :034:

    Can the PC alter the timing curve? how about the quick shifter and cooling fan strategies? throttle blade opening rate?

    Last time I checked  all it did was fuel which is only one part of the tuning process,  but maybe things have changed...

    I think the latest ones can do timing but that's about it, I prefer the bespokeness and no wire jungle for an ECU flash albeit I'm probably still going for a rapid bike evo cos it's just so much cheaper and it's good enough to get headers fuelled right on the road.

    I’ve bought two secondhand PC’s(but have also bought new)that had been mapped on similar bikes and even then took 4/6 dyno runs to get it right, having had dealings with a couple of different tuners over the years because of time and situation, but in fairness they have all been the same the way they operated, no two bikes are the same and the flexibility a PC gave me worked great.

    Never had any problems fitting them myself, Dynojet always supply a new PC with a starting map, and I guess the first one I fitted must be 18/19 years ago and still runs like a good’un.

    As for timing curve etc...it’s a road bike but the very best of luck if that’s the road you want to go down, i’d Be thinking aftermarket suspension and BST of Dymag wheels first but hey each to his/her own, and if anyone does go that route with the wheels it’s the front that makes the difference, the rear helps the job along but take a lot more ‘Feel’ to sort that out.

    Best to check with Dynojet first if thinking of purchasing a PC, they don’t do one for a 2019 XR so I doubt they do one for a Gen 2.

    2019 is identical to 2017 and 2018 though

    ...

    Thats a pretty silly statement considering its about a $400 difference between a PC and a complete tune...( and worth every penny) if you can do suspension and BST or Dymag wheels  for $400 , your doing OK ..I spent $2600 on suspension alone on my last bike....

    But its all personal choice...some guys are fine with just fixing the fueling..Im not one of those guys, I want a complete tune where everything is optimized to work together...once you have had that, there is no going back..... just like quality suspension  ..once you have ridden it,your spoiled forever.
