My tuning methodology
« on: December 27, 2017, 01:15:44 pm »
 A bit long, but loaded with information. This will help you understand tuning, and my thoughts and methods of tuning. An educated consumer is my best customer. Steve

Yeah, if you want true ram air tuning, you better be willing to ram some air! (SiSF)

Great write-up and explanation Steve.  Thanks for being very transparent and letting us know how you do what you do! I've loved my bike since the beginning but I love it even more since getting the SISF flash done. 

Thanks for all your work on this.

Great write up and I don't have a C14 - but a C10.

I always learn great stuff from Steve.

Well that was a good read. Thanks for all you do to make my C14  a  refined performer compared to stock.
Looks like i need to upgrade to the Mountain Runner.

Thanks for the write-up and the background in what you are doing. I have your second iteration of the flash and can say I agree with your statement that it’s smooth, fast, and economical.  I just had a conversation with a long term Cogger this weekend that I convnvinced personally (not to be taken lightly) that a flash would give his 08 a longer legs for a cross country trip he was taking to Alaska. His response when I asked him how it worked out?  10% better fuel economy. The flash is real.
Silver 2011 C-14. Previous rides: KZ-400, KZ-750, KZ-1000.  Keep the rubber side down.  Ride Fast......Live Slow......

Thanks 4 bikes, the 8-9's actually benefit on better economy ever more than the later bikes because they don't have an ECO mode. Thanks for the kind words and endorsement. Steve

 BTW, if anyone reads my methodology and has any questions at all, please ask them. I want everyone to know what they get when doing business with me.
