Default Best Tune for my setup

Hey Guys, new to the forum and about to buy my first bike. I'll be purchasing a 2014 Forty-Eight and I have a few parts I would like installed. I've decided to go with the Vance and Hines Big Radius 2 in 2 Exhaust, and Roland Sands design contrast clarity Air Cleaner. I was going to have the dealership install and tune/dyno the bike, but they are asking an un-Godly amount. Which after-market tuner should I go with? And should I still have a shop dyno the bike? I was considering the "Vance and Hines FuelPak"...Any idea? Thanks

NO to the fuel pak, I bought a used 2011 48 with 600 miles, V&H ShortShots and the SE aircleaner. Lots of surging at light throttle, V&H wont let you know what each cell does so you are at their mercy. I tried several changes from them with no luck. I ended up pulling the FuelPak and putting the stock exhaust back on then adding a set of X14IED's to richen it up a bit. Its better, but still surges.
I am waiting on a set of Radii SlipOns and will probably be adding a FuelMoto Micro for a tuner due to their customer service and reviews. Plus, I like the idea of their fine adjustment pots so you can make small adjustments without downloading a new map.
IMHO, you really need a tuner that you or your shop can adjust, not something that you are at the mercy of the manufacture for adjustments.

+1. You wont need a dyno ever and you'll end up with a better tune than you would get from the dealer.

Any EFI bike should always have a flash tuner purchased for it - thats the most important upgrade you'll ever buy.

I ended up going with my first choice of the Fuel Moto Micro. Its cost is in my range for right now. I might kick myself for not going with the Powervision right off the bat but I'm not planning on doing future mods and think all I need is to loose the O2 sensors and adjust fuel. Fingers Crossed. This surging around town is a pain and thats the most driving that I do.
