Hey guys, just curious what kind of maps you all are running? I have a 2002 and im running the map for my added two brothers highmount pipes. Was wondering if there were any maps out there that everyone seemed to really like. The guy at the Local shop wanted to make me a custom map but he also wanted $400 to do it lol. Any suggestions?

If you found a map specifically for your tb's high mounts then just run that.

And $400 for a custom tune is WAY to much by the way.

Where do you all 'over there' get your maps and Power Commanders from? What's the average price? I'm looking at $500 Aus' ($595 R.R.P.), plus a tune. Lucky for me, an ex-workmate is THE dyno tuning guru in town, so I can count on a good price for a top job.
My cousin eBayed an PC for his Gixxer, map installed, for a lot less than what I can get one from out of my old shop, so I'm considering going down that route.
I've just picked up some beautiful HRC Akrapovic hi rise slipons from one of THE most helpful guys I've ever dealt with(AND he's a member on here, no suprise!), so a PC is a must. I also scored some new K&N's for $20, so I guess they'll go in, too. Flapper mod' to be done as well; should come up a rather smooth, gorgeous sounding tune! I'm expecting a map to suit these mods will still have room to be tuned better by my mate, factoring in altitude etc where I'm at, so I'm looking forward to 'unleashing the beast'!

Well I got my maps right from the PC website. They have a large list of maps already there for you. All you have to do is down load them. Ive heard alot of good things about Akrapovic pipes. Are thye really worth the $$$. I like the sound my Twp Brothers give me but they can get a little annoyingly loud on long rides lol. When you get them installed should take a good video of them so I can hear what they sound like.

The one think I remember about Akra's is that they're a 'classier' note than a lot of other 'open' pipes. Some are just TOO loud, raspy and barky. The Akrapovics are a deeper, 'bassier' note, clearly louder than standard, but they're received well by almost all that hear them. The last bike I had some on didn't do the long distance 'drone' thing that some other brands seem to be known for. The full systems are a work of art; I think all Akrapovic stuff is worth the dollars!
I'll see what I can organise re: vid' of pipes w/sound. As my hot water service just blew up tonight ( -5 degrees in a typical Canberra winter's night), the money I was saving for the PCIII and tuning has been compromised somewhat!!

I was lucky to buy my Akrapovic full system last year during a year-end blowout sale and saved $400 bucks. Only cost me $1400 including free shipping.
The entire system including both carbon-fiber cans and springs is only 14 Lbs (6.2 Kg).
The welds are absolutely beautiful.

I would like to try their new trapezoid cans.
They have them for the Aprilias and sound fantastic.
Maybe I'll put them on the to-do list.
