    Default TH2 & Free Spirits Air Box

    Hi all,


    I began the tuning work with the DPV I used for my Nightster (I had to buy a license for the XR).

    I started in Winter and had to stop after 5 autotune sessions only as the weather would not permit extended/fun rides.

    Later, I did not resume the autotune work but decided to see what a custom dyno map would give instead, as I was given the opportunity to do so.

    So the graphs here are not a stock vs dyno comparison but a DPV ''incomplete'' tune vs dyno.

    The results are pretty good in my opinion, and I could immediately feel that the dip at low rpm had vanished ! The tech could have squeezed a few more hp without the db-killers but I am not a big fan of the TH II sound (or noise).

    Still, the DPV did a fine job. However, not sure at all that I could have been able to flatten the torque curve at low revs, even with a lot more autotune sessions.

    To sum up, nothing replaces a good custom tune.
    But if you're far away from a dyno, a DPV would produce very acceptable results for a similar amount of money + (lots of) patience and some good DPV literature !

    Good job!, I'm happy with the power vision, made about 86 hp with mine, but I didn't do a custom tune on the dyno.

    Quite respectable numbers there.
    You see in this world there are two kinds of people my friend.
    Those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

    Very good numbers indeed.
    Show up on time, do your best and don't grumble about the outcome.

    Any time you're achieving > 90 RWHP with bolt on parts you're doing well, dyno tune or no.
