Ok I plan to buy a tuner soon and I was thinking about a FP3 but I
really like the Idea of the TTS and having the ability to upgrade the engine to whatever and not need a different tuner.
But at present I don't plan on much and I don't want to pay$$$ for a dyno tune for just air cleaner and slip-ons.
So I have talked with TTS about the V-Tune feature and they say its not that hard to take the base map that is close to what I have and V-Tune to get it closer.
MY Question: How difficult is it to use the V-Tune to successfully adjust the Map to suit my set-up?:confused:

I havent V-Tuned mine yet. Runs real good and have some good MPG.
I read the how to session. Doesnt seem too difficult. May try it this summer if I get bored.

I used TTS for around 3 yrs on my 2012, no real issues. It works really well. I had the black dongle so I had to drag a computer everywhere. With the new units you don't need to, but on the other hand, you really can't see the cells your hitting or missing during the vtune process. I switched to Powervision with target tune for the new bike. That works well also. Being a person that likes to tinker the PV has advantages, but the TTS is solid. I like the TTS software a little bit better, might be because I'm more familiar with it though. The documentation for the software, TTS is a clear winner. PV has more convenience to it. Really nice to be able to see the cells you hit or miss, plus you stop save the changes, save the tune, and flash to the bike, and your off for another tune or data run without ever having to get off the bike. Both are very good systems, you can't go wrong with either. For me at this time the PV/TT is as good as I need it to be.

It's ridiculously easy. The base calibrations are pretty good, but you can get a whole lot better by V-Tuning to your bike. Again, this is (to me) a no-brainer....You have a powerful tool at your disposal; use it.

But....

There is only so much you can do without the benefit of a dyno. A good operator can create a better tune than what you can do on the street. And as mentioned, a dead-stock bike will benefit from a tune.
