Tuner in Central Jersey / NYC area needed

After a long, slow and hot fundraiser run last week, my bike started bogging, popping, backfiring and stalling. I spoke with Jamie at FM, I have their 107, pipes, and PV, he recommended getting it dynoed, but trying the auto tune. I did that yesterday but incorrectly, will try again tomorrow.

What really surprised me, I went to DynoJets site to look for a certified tuner in the area, none. DynoJet looked and confirmed, a lot of dealers take the class but don't get certified. I called my dealer, he did everything he could to sell me a Race Tuner and a tune, and everything he could to talk me into losing the PV.

I looked into a transport company to get the bike to WI, 1400 round trip, so that's not happening. I'm confident that the auto tune will help, but not get it to the optimum point. Any recos in the area anyone can share? In NY, I remember Orient Express in Freeport LI and Rosa's out in Suffolk somewhere, need to see if they are still around. I'm in Union County NJ.

I spoke with Maroney's, they wont tune any DynoJet products, they recommend the race tuner or TTS. About 700-750 with the tuner and tune

Rosa's will tune with a power commander but will not touch a power vision. If a tuner needs to be purchased, they highly recommend Techno Research. They are about 600 all in for the tuner and tune.

Orient Express will do tune with a Power Vision, not crazy about it or tuning Harley's, says its a very slow process, tune is 450.

I'm going to see how the auto tune works out for a little while, but not sure if i should hang onto the PV or not.
