Tuning Options

Looking at options regarding PCFC, Holeshot, Dobek, etc. Can these be used in conjunction with a tre? Which is better Ivan's TRE or Healtech, my head is starting to swell...

tuning box

Went to my local Suzi dealer regarding the ECM on my 2012 Dl1000. I have the "early" ECM. They said to bring the bike in.

I plan on using a PCFC or PC V, so my question is, is it even worth the hassle and the potential runaround from the dealer, if I am going to hook up one of these tuners anyway?

Thanks in advance tuning Gurus!

Your 2012 needs the ECM update. Should be a warranty, no-charge item. Get that done first. Then see how you like it and go from there.

I know it does, talked to a dealer and I have to bring the bike in, that will be my first step.

Building a derestrictor, still evaluating the secondary removal, will probably get either the holeshot or PCFC.

A most enjoyable work in progress.

Appreciate the response Hammerdown77!

give some thought to the PCFC. They work great if you need one. It only can help the low end running because there is plenty of fuel in the mixture above that.So try the new ECM and if it runs well, good enough!
The TRE is another matter. It only affects 5th and 6th gears. The ads are misleading, and if you don't read the fine print you will think your bike is restricted in the lower gears, which it is not. It's the top speed they are trying to control to keep us alive. OK, I use a TRE but not for top speed. Mostly passing acceleration and such. You can remove the secondaries or not. You will not likely feel the difference. I took mine out "just in case". Of what, I don't know (smile). Which TRE is not important. It need not be "smart". You can make one pretty easily. Have fun. Bob
PS: If you change to a performance pipe, you will need either a yosh treatment or PCFC.
