Master tune

Short intro, just traded my dyna for 2010 rg and im really liking it. Will post pictures later. My question is why nobody on this site has mentioned using a master tune. I thought Doc was dealer but I might be mistaken.

There are a few threads in here where it's mentioned. Maybe because it is a bit more expensive, and/or its a do it yourself type tuner. I dont know
All good things Ive heard about them, but I went with a PCV from Fuel Moto.
My dealer only uses the Power Commanders, so that pushed me in that direction of the PCV. Search TTS Master tune and some threads will pop up. Here are a couple:

I have the TTS Master Tune, and in my view it gives you the best control over fuel management, since it allows you to make changes to your existing ECM and with Vtune, to create a map specific to your bike and your preferences.

However, it is expensive ($425) and what you're really paying for is their software to run on your laptop. In my opinion, the "black box" only serves as a fancy interface between your bike's datalink plug and a USB connector to your laptop.

If you buy the box, you'll be able to load their software onto your PC, but you still won't be able to use it until you buy the cable... another 79 bucks. TTS has been hanging around MOCO too long: sell the product, then sell them the accessories so they can actually use it.

But it is a well done program.

In my opinion, unless you plan to make changes over time to your bike and would need to have the map compatible, I think you might want to wait until you get any major changes made, and then get the PCV from Fuelmoto with their maps that'll probably be pretty close to what you have done. Of course, if you pull it out of your system, you'll then be running the real map that's in the ECM and your scooter might not sound so hot. Remember, the PCV modifies what the ECM has to say, the TTS actually changes the ECM, Either way can be very effective.

But I'm NOT an expert!

I have the TTS MasterTune on my 2011 RGU and on my best friend's 2007 Ultra.

I love it!

I like the fact that I have control, and can change, and Vtune and remap...

It is a bit spendy, but I bought a $25,000 motorcycle, why not spend another 4 bones for a tuner?

AND, when I'm ready to dyno tune, it's one of the most comprehensive programs on the market in the hands of a pro...

I bet you've spent that much in chrome....

before buying a mastertune check out the Dynojet power vision. It will be released soon and looks like a very nice unit for the home tuner.

TTS here, too. We used it on my Springer and my wife's Street Glide. When I upgrade the cams on the new RGU, Doc will be tuning it with a TTS as well.

Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
