Well at least you can bring your bike to ROSA's and have a 100 HP bike or close to it.. They're KNOWN for HERO numbers that can NOT be REPEATED...

I know at least 3 people who've taken their bike there, paid a fortune and they received HP/TQ numbers that are about 10-15 over what the bike SHOULD do.. (given the components)..

MikeLI_77 has had his bike dyno'd a half a dozen times afterwards and couldn't come to within 5hp, even with ADDING Go fast parts/etc..

Nothing worse than shops that give false dyno numbers. They are a cancer to the shops that are honest.

there is probabaly a good reason why they do not want you to watch especially if they seem to be inflating their numbers.

I went to powerhousemc.com last year, but I totally forgot what that cost me.
The guy specializes on jap bikes, however he was very accommodating w my sportster. He did the job for me in about 3 hours while I was waiting in the shop, but i had to schedule my appointment 4 weeks in advance. He normally prefers drop in service.
My results came out awful, obviously I don't blame him for this. A word of caution though, he won't do compression test, etc for you. So I would recommend to make sure your bike in sound mechanical condition before you go, otherwise it would waste of time/money.
He did let me in dyno room so I could calibrate shift light.

Rosa's is garbage. I paid $500. for my tune there and got nothing out of it but B.S numbers. They cater to rich people who want to see big numbers to inflate there heads when there bike is not even doing what they say it is doing. North shore cycles in NHP sucks also. there dyno isn't calibrated correctly and puts out extremely low numbers.

Click on my link below of my dyno which was done by speeds performance which is a guy who is from Sturgis who bought a big rig put a dyno in it and tours all of the major bike weeks dyno tuning bikes. He makes and sells his own line of performance products that you can find on his web site (http://www.speedsperformanceplus.com/) or from drag specialties. They spent about 4-5 hours tuning my bike to get it to the best they could and I believe there numbers because they worked there ass off to get them and I watched them the whole time adjusting this and that replacing the jets a few times, he even modified my exhaust baffle with a crowbar by mangling it a little bit to help with reversion i was getting.

Rosa's gave me something like a 89HP and 87TQ and North Shore Cycles in NHP gave me 78HP and 71TQ which was about the same numbers as when I had my bike dyno tuned before I installed all of my performance parts with my stock engine,V&H Straight Shots with quiet baffles and a K&N Air filter in my stock Ham Can on top of that they cannot even install a tire correctly, dropped off my rim and they put the tire on backwards. You can see my dyno sheet below in my signature as well as all the parts I added to my bike to compare to the numbers i have stated above and what my dyno link below states.
