Taking care of your motorcycle is about looking after both the things you can see; tyres, chain, sprockets, brakes, oil, filters, etc and the things unseen like the air/fuel ratio of your motor under all conditions of use. The only way most people can do this is by having their bike on a dyno.
Most new motorcycles come from the factory in a state of tune that is not ideal. There are a number of reasons for this compromise including worldwide variations of fuel, atmospheric conditions, altitude and of course emissions restriction requirements. These euro 3, 4, 5 & 6 requirements are intended to make vehicles run with low emissions. In reality new vehicles are just “tuned” to pass the ride by test for emissions and noise. The way this is achieved is by restricting the exhaust and induction noise through baffling and by restricting emissions by running the bike very lean which can be dangerous for the motor.
When tuning your motorcycle, the first thing we do is a power run (actually we always do 2) to see what your bike’s power and torque curves look like, and more importantly, what the associated Air/Fuel ratios are like over the rev range. Admittedly this is only a brief look but it gives us a good idea of what your engine is doing and where to improve.
The next step is a dyno tune to modify the fuel mixture to achieve a better tune. This will improve the fuel economy, power and torque of your bike.
We have the latest Woolich Flash Tune and DynoJet software able to tune most makes and models.
In addition to performance and power gains, it will also make it much nicer to ride by smoothing out the torque and power curves.
