use the one the tuner likes,he is tuning it.
if someone wants to sell you a V&H tuner and tune it on the dyno? find someone else.

in no particular order,
tecno research (direct link)
power commmander vision
mastertune (tts)
screaming eagle (sepst)
any of these tuning devices in the right hands will give you the best results.

I think it comes down to the person doing the tune, not just the tuner being used. Some tuner's are better than others. I went with the TTS Mastertune in my 2012 SG. My other Harley's have carbs, so I'm new to the tuner thing. I went with what the dealer said would be best. Sometime's their idea's aren't the best. I was told that this tuner will work if I ever did a cam swap or head work. We'll find out this winter.

Listen to this guy. Best advice on the subject. The person doing the tuning is the most important factor. Find a good tuner (the person doing the tune) first. He will help you decide on the tuning device to use.

Any tuner that is worthy of that title should be able to do a very good tune using any of those interfaces that stroker listed. The direct link I never considered due to the lack of guys using that system in my area. It's is the tradesman's talent that determines how the job turns out.

+1 on which ever tuner your dyno guy likes... I went with the Powervision, myself. Having to do it over, I'd have maybe used the MoCo tuner. Reason being, I just used it to do some data logging trying to do my own tune before I could get my bike dyno'd. I THINK (and I might be wrong) the SEPST is a bit cheaper than the powervision. Now that my bike is tuned properly, I don't even have it hooked up anymore...
On the plus side, they all seem to work well! Good luck.

I'm using the power commander with auto tune, it's great and I dont have to pay someone else to tune it. I just type in the afr values and the auto tune makes the adjustments needed to meet those values, and whatever changes I make to the bike, the auto tune will adjust to them also.

Sure you can dial one in to run down the road decent without a dyno.
If you are building a performance motor, you still need to use a dyno to maximize your investment .
Example .... You could spend the money on building a stage 2 bike that dosent run as well as a stage 1 bike .
Or you spend the money to build a stage 4 motor, without a way to measure the gains from tuning the stage 4 , you end up with stage 4 that dosent have the performance of a stage 2.
Crazy how someone will spend good money on performance parts , and never see it's full potential .

Happened to me. Only thing is I knew it was happening even as it happened. I had a SERT at the time and the dealer who built the motor used the SERT to "tune" it....three separate times. I had a 103 with headwork, 10.5 CR, and 37 cams. After the last dealer "tune" my buddy on his 203 cammed 88" Road King could beat me handily.

The point of this is that, you need to find someone reputable to actually do the tune. Otherwise it doesn't matter which tuning device you use. Garbage in = garbage out + a prematurely shelled out engine.
