Dyno PCV tune cost?

What is a reasonable / expected price for having a PCV tuned on the dyno? I've called around this AM and the one shop that actually picked up the phone quoted me $300. Seems kinda steep for a little bit of work to cost as much as the PCV itself... so I figured I'd ask the experts.

2008 1000rr
Yosh R-77 Slip-on
OEM Air Filter
No Flapper Mod
No PAIR Mod

Currently running the map from the PowerCommander site for my setup, but was hoping to get a custom map if it was reasonable $. The bike is still all over the place at idle, but I've noticed a marked improvement in the sputtering when around neutral throttle when riding around.

I checked the maps threads stickied, but couldn't find one that matched my setup.

That's exactly what i got quoted on....apparently they do three runs to rev limiter....i've also research and found that a "great" tune is done at 500rpm increments...either way im having mine tuned in a week or so after i install my full exhaust...i wouldnt mind paying $500 if they tuned it at every 500rpm increments...just saying

wow. it's expensive where you guys live. $300 for installing a PCV and a custom tune, and not 3 pulls, more like 6-10, including test rides as needed.

It also depends on the dyno machine, the newer the more the owner needs to pay off the machine..

I will say, a custom tune transforms the bike.

Local Harley dealer in my area said 400$ for a PC(which of course ill buy from superbikesupply for way cheaper) and 250$ for dyno tune. However I didn't ask what all that includes but he also told me I would be the first sport bike. So I may pass all together

Your jumpy idle might be your IAC valves out of sync. Mine was jumping all over the place too until i put a carbsync tool on it.

If you want a cheap map thats tons better than the PC maps on their site talk to this guy

A custom tune is probably the best performance mod you can do to your bike...well worth the $ spend.
$300. is what I paid for a quality tune from a reputable tuner...(and that was a discounted price).
