Recently traveled up to Wheelsmith Racing/Factory Pro Tuning in San Rafael. Spent a couple of days running the bike on the dyno with Marc Salvisberg, this guy knows his sh#t.
2012 1700 Storm
Ran like crap, was ok on freeways, not so good on twisties. Normal problems at idle to 1500/2000rpm.
Marc started from low rpms as I do most of my riding on back roads and worked his way up to rev limits. 2 tanks of gas and nearly 300 miles on his dyno and I think he has achieved a near perfect map for this bike. It pulls hard and now can be riden as hard on the turns without the jerky, stumbling throttle response. The bonus is we gained 10hp and 10 more lbs of torque. On the twisties I can now keep up with my son on a FZ09.
I have a hex file of this tune if anyone would like to try it.
