Power Commander Maps from Fuel Moto

Anyone ever got a custom map from Fuel Moto for a power commander? I know that having my bike custom map is the way to go but I was wondering how good some of their application driven custom maps are. I have a í06 GSXR 1000 with a Two Brothers Slip-on V.A.L.E exhaust. Both Dyno Jet and Two Brothers donít offer maps for this application. Any experience that you can share is greatly appreciated.

I haven't bought one thru them. I am not sure if they would just give the maps away...I was under the impression you only got the service if you bought your PC thru them.......but could always emailthem and ask.

Yeah...I was thinking about getting both map and commander from them. Just wanted to know it they did good work or if I should just go ahead and plan to get the custom job done sooner.

When i got my PC from them, they loaded the map that was already out for my bike with a Yosh pipe. I didn't know they have custom maps. I was thinking that they loaded maps that were already on the DynoJet site.

i got mine thru fuel moto, and it was programmed before i got it, just have to give the information about your bike; make model mods and year

if you do a custom you have to bring your bike in and put it on the dyno so they can tune it for the bike, but that cost $$$$

Yeah...I wouldn't really call it a ideal custom job. I think that they do the best that they can by taking bikes of their own that are the same make and model of your bike with the same modifications and tune the power commander. I can see how it could be pretty close but not as close as someone taking your bike, puting it on a dyno and doing the map. My guess is that DynoJet and Two Brothers do the exact same thing, but neither of them have a map for my application at this present time. I was just wondering if Fuel Moto did good work?

Nothing beats a dyno tune man. I wouldn't waste my money on anything else. If its free with the PC then do it, otherwise get it somewhere thats cheaper and get it dynoed.

I've had Jamie at Fuel Moto dyno tune my old 00 GSXR 750 and my current bike, 04 ZX10R. He also dyno tuned my brother's old bike, a 03 R1. Obviously this is not the same as him putting a map he created for another bike on yours' but I can say his work is excellent and he's a very good tuner. I would and have recommended him to others.

You start out motorcycling with a full bag of luck and an empty bag of experience. The trick is to fill the bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

Thanks for the feedback. This is the type of thing I was looking for.

On another note, how does your ZX10 compare to your old 750 as far as handling? The ZX10 was one other bike that I looked at when getting mine and I would love to get my hands on one and check it out someday.

Not saying that my 10R is a bad handling bike, but my old 750 handled better. A lot of it has to do with the 10R is so twitchy that you have to be really smooth with the throttle otherwise you'll upset the suspension. The 750 was just easier to ride.
