Not sure if anyone will tune a street bike now, in light of new EPA regulations. Cycle Tune used to be the spot for that, but I think they have ceased in light of the fines.

You can still have your bike tuned at Cycle Tune. However, you have to trailer your bike there and from, removed the mirrors and license plate.

The reason you have to do this is that Cycle Tune will not assume the risk of tuning a street bike. They will, however, work on a track-only bike. You have to assume the risk of this and trailer it in and remove the mirrors as if it were a track-only vehicle.

I understand why they would have you do all that... but that's way too much of a pain in the rear. Hmmm.... I'm riding to Austin in October... may have to schedule a Dyno while I'm there. ;)

I had Cycletune do my Warrior about three years ago. Expensive but they did a great job. The bike was scary fast after all my engine mods and their tuning. Even they were surprised at performance numbers when they finished tuning my bike.

I also considered taking the bike up to the Bay Area to G-Force or Hare Racing. Both those places have a good rep and would have cost less money than Cycletune charged.

I'd probably go to Seaside and have it done by Dan Kyle. He's one of the best.

I'VE BEEN IN THE MOTORCYCLE INDUSTRY FOR THE LAST 13 YEARS, WHAT I HAVE NOTICE IS NOW THAT CALIFORNIA HAS CRACK DOWN ON REMOVEL OF EPA EQUIPMENT ( EXHAUST, CHARCOAL CANISTER, AIRBOXS, SENSORS, ETC ) $10,000 FINE TO DEALERS. THAT DEALERS ARE ONLY MODIFIED MOTORCYCLES THAT ARE SUPPOSED TO USED FOR RACING (CLOSED COURSE EVENTS). THE MOTORCYCLE SHOPS I'VE SEEN MODIFIED BIKES ALL REQUIRE REMOVAL OF LIC-PLATES, LIGHTS, & MIRRORS TO KEEP THEM FROM GETTING FINED.

SO THIERS A BIGGER PRICE TO MAKE NOISE AND HAVE MORE HORSEPOWER!!!:)

That's absolutely correct. Any such modifications done on bike is done strictly on off-highway applications. If the bike comes in on a truck/trailer, with no plates, then I will do the work on that particular race-only vehicle.

Just me, but some off-highway bikes I've owned in the past had headlights and mirrors, and I would NOT taking them off to 'prove' its a non-street bike.. If the bike has no license, its not a street bike...

I went around and around with this once in the early 90's regarding a 3/4 ton truck.. it was a '77.. the '77 from the factory did not have a cat (they started with the '78 on the 3/4 ton) and it ran on propane. I had one smog shop demand that I put a cat on it, and that I had to smog on gas since there was still an (empty) fuel tank under the bed. I took it to the smog referee and he passed it first time and assured me that, #1) it ONLY has to have FACTORY smog equipment for the vehicle (be it a truck/car/motorcycle/lawnmower), and #2) the shops were required to smog it on what it drove in on.. even if I could have thrown a switch and gone from propane to gas (it has a propane only carburation system on it, no gasoline bowls or feeds to the carb) they could not require a person to change fuels and test it on the fuel the shop 'thought' it wouldnt pass on...

I'm sure with the enviro-lobby so much in control, they have changed a lot, but that was back then..
Same with a motorcycle, if it has no street plates, it is assumed for the shops point of view that it is not a street vehicle, besides if they make you pull the mirrors, that means nothing from their point of view, you can just take it home and screw them back on...

Dont get me started on the smog garbage in this state :mad: I have dealt with it on many hot rods in the past. If they REALLY cared about 'cleaning up smog' they would do the tailpipe probe on emissions and NOT check every vacuum line to make sure the line is the right color..
I tried to put my '90 1-ton GMC on propane (one of their claimed 'clean air fuels') and was told it would not pass smog.. They did not have a 'carb deviance number' to allow the underhood inspection to pass with the propane system on the engine.. I asked the smog referee, "is it not a clean burn then on the 454?".. the response was "No, its a great clean burn, much cleaner than gas, all the smog readings would be lower than needed to pass, but VISUAL would fail"... To me, that PROVES its not about clean air, but about fees and control of what people can and cannot do... if it was about clean air they would have begged me to spend my money on a conversion that would lower all the emissions across the board..

I'll get off my soapbox now :o

Another example helping me realize how "conservative" Fresno is. :D

I highly recommend Mach 1 in Costa Mesa but that's just me...they're reputed to be the best in all of California. its probably the only shop that hasn't had 'trust' issues with bikers and the tuner there takes his time and does a good jbo.

You can bring me whatever bike you like.
The current law forbids me from modifying the bike in anyway that changes the EPA mandated emissions.
Take a look at the CARB approved PC3 and it becomes evident what settings you can adjust.
Being plug & play, it can be easily removed, if needed :ts0lr2:

I read somewhere that the EPA rules do not apply to track only vehicles...
Does that mean you can work on them?

EPA has no rules against modifying vehicles that are not registered for use on public highways........
So yes, I can work on any bike you bring me.

ill try to procrast. heheh im actually certifiend in dyno jet to run a dyno heheh bt wouldnt know where to start these days since its been awhile since MMI.. lol yeah have u heard anything on the 07 gixxer 600 i heard to custom map it rite u have to ground the power comander to the ground tps wire... any thoughts on this.

The only issue with the custom mapping is that the tps does not fluctuate on a steady state position. A faulty ground can be an issue, but as a general rule...no, as the ground from the battery is a system ground & should include all applications.

sounds good.... let me know when ur all better ill bring u some work.... im waiting on a few things anyways for one bike so i can be patient lol.. whats ur thoughts on re gearing before dyno tune or does it matter. the bike is going to be re geared but for tuning it shouldnt matter right only horsepower and torq readings it would affect or will it affect the tuning.

As the dyno reads rear wheel torque/hp, yes, gearing affects the readings. The tuning side (A/F ratio) will only be minimally affected by gearing changes. It is always my choice to do a before/after profile to ensure you're getting what you want or just (pardon the pun) spinning your wheels.

We were doing dyno tuning until carb knocked on the door. Got my name and address off DynoJets web site. Sent them packing. It is in a trailer with Washington lic. along with the truck. At the rate things are going, Im looking to move out of state. I retire Nov. 12th 2012.

Good luck to all with dyno's.
