LOL. One thing I've learned about dealers over the last 30 years is that they don't have a fookin' clue about the products they sell

Lolol I agree, but I did not buy the racefit from the dealer.

Well it's done and paid for. $900. I will say the bike is more responsive at low end and runs smoother all the way around than my last bike with a slip on Yoshi and no PC and tune. It was a 2013 also. That one did seem to bog a lot at low RPM. Not so anymore.

So it runs better but $900 worth? Still seems like a lot. I'll chime in later after I've ridden it more. He charged me $400 for the PC and $500 for labor. His hands may be partially guided by God because he's a bit expensive all the way around.

Thanks for all the replies.

One things for sure. I'm so glad I'm rid of that Ducati 959. I absolutely hated that bike.

400 for PC is about right but 500$ for labor is way too much, the 500$ includes the cost to dyno correct?
Btw I am around flagler/volusia county. We should link up and ride one day.

I do not need 10 on the fly, I only have 3 stored right now. Maybe some people need 10 who knows. Just saying its better than a full PCV cause it allows you to store 10 and not have to use a PC to change them (if you do not mind not being able to use all the other dynojet accessories)

Are there download tunes that remove the limiters etc or just adjust fueling?

Found my own answer: No

I wish someone did an open source tuner for us. The closest is the Woolrich stuff but it's pricey. With cars you can buy a $200 cable and software and edit darn near everything in the ECU. 2 step, rev limits, fuel, timing, other limiters, everything.
