noob tuner questions

Soo... not too proud to admit I'm completely ignorant to all things tuning and Efi... Picked up a 15 RGS in April and have since put 17k on it including a trip to Surgis from Rhode Island and back. i don't anticipate too many more viable riding days and want to get into the bike and do some work during the off season..other than some basic audio lighting and electrical work (which i am capable of) I am planning a stage I to start which I am certain will lead to more and more work in the future..

I've already purchased the SE street cannons and the performance machine MaxHP intake... will be in the next week or so ordering the fullsac DX header....


My questions are:

What tuners are you running, what do you like/dislike?

What do you recommend for the Stage I and beyond as I'm sure that cams and more will happen as a natural progression

hopefully this all makes sense as I'm just getting out of work on a 34hr shift

thanks in advance for your time and input

FP3 is an awesome tuner for stage 1, and could be a viable "beyond" tuner as it is now more adjustable than in year's past. It is also right up your alley being extremely easy to install and use. Tons of features and some of the best customer service options available. Recently came across this informative review:

SE Race or street tuner. Easily programmable and also will be able to handle when you do major engine upgrades later.

A Power Vision from Fuel Moto will also do it. Stage 1 & beyond. Free maps for life if you buy from them. Great customer service.

I have a Thunder Max, but that's because I have a lot of engine work on my 2010. I have a 2016 and I'm very seriously considering the Vance &Hines FP3, for the cost and what it does, seems to be a good unit. I'll keep reading reviews and decide in the next couple of months.

The PV is a great choice, and the service from FM is second to none.

I have the V&H FP3. It's easy to install, has many maps and an auto tuning feature. I like the various feedback options I can run on my iPhone as well.

Thanks all for the feedback the fp3 is definitely appealing due to its simplicity but I'm leary it may not be upgradeable enough... i understand that with most of the others a dyne tune is the best option. if anyone else has anything to add please do

thanks again

If you are seriously considering more engine mods down the road and you have a certain dyno guy in mind, ask him what tuner he likes to work with. In the long run you will most likely get a better end result. I myself have the TTS Mastertune and am happy with it.

I've used THundermaxx, Power Commanders, etc. On my 16 I went with Direct Link, similar to TTS and had it dyno tuned after cams, etc. I couldn't be happier as it is perfect with timing and with the air/fuel ratio. Also was able to set the cruising area for fuel mileage. Average about 42 mph highway mileage running 75 mph. Good luck with your choice.
