    I took my 2009 Deluxe in for the 1000 mile checkup and the dealer performed a machine Dyno tune on all 6 gears. My dealer put 61 miles on it and almost used a full tank of gas. When I questioned them, they told me this was due to the Dyno tune. Can anyone out there tell me if this is right/normal? 61 miles seems like a lot to me......Sure would appreciated your help. Thanks.

    About the same here, but my indy refilled the tank for me. He's a peach of a guy. Actually his wife does the dynos, she probably did it.

    The miles and gasoline used seems within the tolerable range to me.

    Hats off to those shops who refill the gas tanks after running dyno tests, dealers or indys.

    Sounds right to me. I tell the tuner don't worry about any super tune above 5000 rpms. I ride between 2000 and 4500 rpms. Dyno tunes are hard on the bike and engine, but it is what it is.

    I tuned my with a sweet three hour ride around the mountains and along a new found road that runs along the Delaware. Of course I use the Auto Tune and it is worth every penny it cost.
