Where to get DYno tuned in northern CA??

Im going to get my bike tuned, along with a friend of mine in a few weeks, and for the life of me I cannot find a shop in the Northern CA/sacramento area that will tune it!! its got a PC3, and the only place someone told me to go was to Rohm Performance and machine in Yuba City. The reviews on yelp were not stellar to say the least, but if hes the only one in the area ill have to go to him. Anyone have any reccomendations? Ill ride a few hours if i have to. Thanks guys!

I ran into this guy the last time I was at Honda. If you want to give him a try, let us know. He says he has several years experience, see what you think.

I'll call up Kyle racing and see what they can do. That's like a 3 hour ride one way for me so he may be a bit far. The guy at BHP charges 450 for a tune. Ouch haha. But he's closer lol

Make sure you get your pair/flapper rev limiter mods done first and if your even thinking about an airbox or different pipes same deal

Of course, Kyle was my first thought! But like Tay says, it's 3-4 hours of murderous traffic each way. Kyle would be my second choice if the BHP doesn't pan out.
I asked Mike about putting my bike on their dyno, and he wasn't interested at the time. Maybe he knew it would blow the crapdragons I had at that time right off my bike - I don't know.

Yeah, he's a shorty little runty dude but does know his way around the RC51. Probably all those years reading Rogue, not a bad site for sure. I hear the owner of Rogue is a real asshole, though.
