Getting a Dyno on a 2011 Triple

I have an appointment to get a dyno run on my Triple next Saturday. There is a place in Santa Clara that uses TuneECU specifically for their dyno tuning and the owners are british. They had a few triumphs in their shop too so I feel fairly confident although I didn't see any reviews on yelp for their dyno work. I trust them more than my dealer. The question I have is though, should I map with or without the SAI blocked?

And for all the work you have to do to remove it, let it stock....

You need to block SAI to have reliable measurements on the dyno. If SAI is open the fresh air will throw off the exhaust gas analyzer.

You can re-enable SAI after dyno if you so wish.

I would also weld a M18 O2 sensor bung onto the header collector, to improve readings on the dyno.

This. You don't get proper readings if you inject air into the exhaust.

Exactly as Martin says - the dyno operator will probably insist anyway

What is the shop?

There is also FactoryPro in San Rafael or JT&S Performance at Infineon Raceway

Hey DEcosse.

Ok. Gonna plug it tonight. The shop was gonna be Evolution in Santa Clara but I don't think they have a lot of experience. Fastline was recommended in Fremont. What do you think?

I still have to sort a high idle problem. Think my open and close cables aren't set right. Lots of play on last nights run after replacing the throttle body assembly.

I doubt if Fastline has even seen a Triumph?
Have no basis for that - just a feeling

Are they using DynoJet?
If so, not ideal for tuning with TuneECU or TuneBoy - most DynoJet operators are not real tuners, they just run the automated programs.

Ask them if they have experience of a Keihin Triumph and understand particularly how to manipulate the L vs F tables.

Either of the places I mentioned are good - I have personally worked with Jim at JT & S on the dyno and he is good guy;
I think FactoryPro might have the most experience.
Check out their velocity stacks! - http://www.factorypro.com/Prod_Pages/prodtd_955.html

Thanks. I'll go wherever the most experience is with Triumphs. If you say JT&S then I'll give them a ring.

Evolution runs a mustang dyno and uses TuneECU exclusively. They did have a couple triumphs there but I think them having a dyno is new.

Not sure about Fastline yet. Didn't call em but they came recommended on the barf but those were Japanese bike guys.
