This is on a 2016 RGU CVO with the 117 kit installed, SE Eagle Street Tuner, SVT Boneshaker slip-one and everything else stock. 117 kit was installed at 5,000 miles. I am not overly familiar with what a proper dyno sheet should look like but that dip is not something that I've seen when I've had a bike dyno'd in the past. I am having some issues with the dealer, which is why the name is blacked out, and just want to get your thoughts on what you see. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here's what I see: tuned by a guy whose only qualification was that he slept at a Holiday Inn.

IMHO, the very last place I would take my bike to get a tune would be a Harley dealer. 99.9% of them have no idea what they are doing. Are there exceptions? Sure. But these people are clearly idiots.

I'm sure there are plenty of competent tuners in the Houston area. Get a recommendation, take it there, and please post the results on this thread.

edit... I looked on other forums, here's what I came up with:

Southern M/C in Aldine. (281) 987-3324

Mutant Motors, Baytown, TX - http://mutantmotorsbywolf.com/

Top Dead Center in Richmond, TX (832)595-0832

Monster Performance Cycles - Cypress - (281) 758-2622

That is funny - I must be lucky in my parts as I have a few dealerships with exceptional tuners

Sorry to see that Sheet amigo - That Pull & Dip is not what you paid for - If you wanted a flat spot, you could have saved a ton of $$ but getting a flat chested Hooker

1. That Tuner is not customizable and only loads a Factory Approved Map
2. Your CAT is KILLING your flow

Did your Kit come with new intake as well? - Looks like a flow & tune problem to me amigo - The foundation is there, just need a fine tune

It did not come from with a new intake so the bike has the stock CVO SE Ventilator.

I had the bike dyno tuned at 1000 miles and the graph was very smooth, especially compared to this one.

You need to publish that dealer's name so we can bash their stupid asses all over the 'net. My stage 1 CVO had numbers very close to that with a good tune. Someone mentioned Steve at GMR in the Dallas area. He's got a good rep on the CVO forum and a few of my friends are happy with the builds he did for them. I'm sure there's great tuners in your area as well. Someone will chime in with one more local to you I'm sure.

Here's my dyno sheet for comparision. Red line is after the tune.



Here's my first CVO with just a D&D and a good tune.

I finally had time to take my bike to an independent. I added on Cobra true dual headers and had them dyno tune the bike. End result was 117 HP and 132 TQ. The bike is a dream to ride now. Top Dead Center Performance and Josh did an outstanding job. Thanks for the help.

There should have been a base map to start from for a straight up 117 kit
Had heads done and 585 cam with mine took the dyno guy about 5 hours to get it wright and he was breaking new ground.
Take it to another hd dealer ship where the guy knows his stuff

not right in the Houston area, but a decent ride away.
