PCIII USB map

I haven't yet found a map for my bike that matches my mods. I'm wondering if anyone out there has a good map (that doesn't get 17MPG) for the '06 1800 R/S/N with:
V&H Big Shots - normal baffle
Beans mod
Spyker mod
PAIR removal

I just switched to a map for V&H with Thunder air after I did the Spyker mod and it made me too lean. It's running well but if there is a more optimized map out there it would be great. I'm not looking for max power - I've got plenty, but more of a map that keeps a good A/F ratio so I'm not running too lean and get the best the MPG I can expect with my setup.

I probably should have just put some plexiglass behind my Spyker mod so the backlighting still worked and it was just cosmetic instead of functional.

I will. I talked to the Dyno shop here, he's done 96 VTX1800's. Nonetheless, he wants $300 flat fee to tune it on the machine, but swears it will be the best $300 I've spent on the bike. Yeah... I'd see about that.

I can't believe someone doesn't already have a map from a dyno shop for this bike. If I pay to get it done, I will be posting it up. In the meantime, I'll check the cafe and ask Stump.

If the guy at the dyno shop knows what he is doing it very well could be the best $300 you spent on the bike. I tried numerous maps (some that were exact for my mods) and my own tinkering to get my 2002 1800C to stop bucking (more of a random hiccup I guess) between about 43mph and 53mph. I have pretty much stock everything except for the desmog/pair removal and some V&H Bigshots that are uncorked. It was completely rideable, plugs read perfect, but it just wasn't right. Finally dropped the money on a dyno tune and holy cow what a difference! Minimal change in power, but rideability was 10 times better/smoother. I only spent $250, but it was one of my better cost to benefit ratio purchases IMO.

It's a 5.2 gallon tank. I could go 170 easy before
I got nervous. My horrible riding habits are a big part of my problem. Normal people see a stop light and a white line. I see a drag tree and burnout zone.

Dyno session this Saturday, 11:00.

Screw it, I might as well do the tuning right after I did everything else right.
