I had the MM replacement from ThunderMax. It is great if you can find someone to tune it. There are a couple of people that know how to tune it. I upgraded to the MM TMax when I built the engine on my '01 RK. Took the TC88 to a 95 with head work, cams etc. I could ride it on 1 wheel through 3 gears! But it took some time to get it dialed in. It was a ball buster of a ride if you could hold on to the handlebars!!!! I did the next generation TMax on my '13 RGC and love it.

I did have the autotune and it did okay. The key was getting it dialed in as the basic map was close but left a lot of power out of the tune. I did a complete build including ported and polished heads, 95" kit, S&S cams, adjustable push rods, Feuling cam support plate and high flow oil pump along with the MM TMax. I loved it when it was tuned to perform. And Zipper's is a great company to do business with. That is why I put their tuner on my RGC and I really like the performance.

as a shop own/mechanic/tuner ive sold dozens of these over the years.. the throttle body unit for the mm is the best system in my eyes and their support is second to none ive built several 99-01 103 plus motors and everyone of them were absutley happy with them and as he said in earlier post 3 gear wheelies are possible i even seen a broken swingarm from the power

upgrade

When I did my top end last year I went for the MM HPI throttle body, and the Power Commander. Pro street heads, gear drive cam,yada yada. All you need then is a good tuner. Like nite and day. Got to lose that throttle body.

TMAX is great!!

When I worked at a dealer, we installed a ton of TMAX w/ autotunes, we had huge success with them, Customer service is top notch!!, I run a TMAX on my agressive built motor and love it!! My buddy has a shop and it is the most installed tuner there as well!!
