    Your point is a good one, +1. In my case I didn't come out of my first tuning experience entirely unscathed either. I actually ran with a lean condition at cruise (bucking) long enough to damage my exhaust valves. Definitely slow & methodical changes, one at a time, and incrementally, backing them out if something seems off. I ignored it for too long.

    To add to that:

    I don't recommend anyone digital tune their ride without first installing a wide band AFR meter capable of data-logging. Add this as the first item to any list that involved the purchase of tuning equipment. It is arguably, the most important piece.

    I can email you a couple of tune files if you wanba poke around with them. You can do a compare files function that will list any parameters that were changed so you can learn a bit

    Which WB controller are you installing? My Zeitronix recommended by Lasota racing hasn't given me any issues for the past 10 years.

    I'm not aware that Autometer makes wide band kits. They make gauges.

    What specific wideband kit are you talking about? Post a link to it.
