Comparison Chart! How does BrenTuning stack up against the competition?

Since we get a lot of questions about what sets our BMW S1000RR flash apart from the competition, we made a comparison chart using the most popular tuning methods vs our flash.

As you can see, the chart is leaning towards a handheld for the 17-19. This isn't a mistake. More coming VERY soon on that.

Rapid bike definitely doesn’t need Dyno tuning especially with the wideband sensor installed.

Depends on the model you buy and piggyback auto tunes tend to get corrupted when an OEM QS is involved.

I’m specifically talking about the rapid bike and wideband sensor. Rapid bike supports multiple fuel maps. Should be titled Marketing sheet, not an accurate comparison chart

With map switch (available separately and tuning not included). Now you’re talking a price setup. So I guess you’re right, the sheet should be changed to signify a price for tuning with rapid for this specific setup.

Also the auto tune with a OEM QS is a mess, as I’m sure you know.

Wtf you on m8 the auto tune and oem qs works a treat... it has a different map for each gear... if you want to run race gas and pump or e85 then yeah get a switch... my point is that the Marketing sheet is not accurate

The issue with a piggyback and an auto tuner is simple. I know because I've ran into this issue myself. S1000RR's have spark cut. This temporary cut allows the bike to shift to the next gear extremely fast and if you have exhaust, cause a little flame to come out. The flame is due to the unburned fuel being ignited from the spark cut. The piggyback only sees that when you shift, a rich condition arises and it needs to correct it. After about a month of riding the correction starts to be severe and the bike will actually start to buck because it's so lean. The only way to fix it is to turn off the auto tuner on partial throttle shifting areas and WOT pulls. It won't correct then but it also won't tune so what's the point of a piggyback tuner? I saw no point in it at all. Unless you don't use the OEM QS, it's a useless tuning substitute for the S1000RR.

If you did put a dot on the multiple fuel maps on that chart, would that really mean it's better than the rest? It looks like it's tied for last place from what I see.
