    Research time guys all help appreciated.

    So I currently have a list of repairs that need to be completed, after which I have some cosmetic and performance upgrades in mind, I'm all sorted for the current repairs, I have my plan for cosmetic/comfort upgrades. And to an extent I have a plan for the performance stuff. I have my eye on a nice set of staintunes, a cat delete, swap the current tune boy pods to a ramair or k&n (you know, all the standard stuff) the issue I have is the tune. Following are my questions (some may seem silly, but I'll ask anyway)
    1. I assume by the tune boy pods I have a tune boy tune
    2. I have read a few times about a tune boy password (I definitely wasn't told it)
    3. I'm not confident in trying a self tune with only the information I have read, is someone local willing to walk me through it?
    4. What is the rough cost of a professional tune and is there anyone recommended in the area (southside, Ipswich)

    There is no such thing as 'Tune Boy Pods' that I am aware of. 'Tune Boy' is a proprietary tuning package and software system which is quite expensive and individually licensed and cannot be onsold easily. It now has largely been replaced by freeware from TuneECU and Dynotune Poeer Commander systems.

    The physical air filters are:

    • Stock panel insert with all the underseat plumbing
    • an aftermarket replacement filter for stock by K&N etc which does not achieve much at all
    Then you go to removing the under seat air intake plumbing and fit a variety of filter systems direct to the throttle bodies without the air intake plenum etc.

    These can be Triple POD filters like K&N, RamAir, UniFilter etc, These are generic 61/62mm neck pods

    And then there are the panel filter systems:

    RamAir make the specific version for the R3 throttle bodies with in built trumpets under the foam. This will support the production of up to about 220 rear wheel hp with other engine mods and a gooddyno tune.

    With more modification sealed plenum type panel systems can be modified to suit very high output modified engines. See @Claviger threads on the issue

    I have the stock intake removed and 3 bright orange foam Pod filters that are branded "tune boy" and was told the bike has been tune to those filters..... My assumption. Therefore is tune boy tune.

    As I said, I was unaware, maybe they supplied filters with the TuneBoy system?

    It was quite expensive and required the user to have a special code that only worked for the unit they purchase from what I have read. They are or were very good in their day and the only way to go at one time - you had best fird out what your tune is and if there is any other TuneBoy hardware / electronics fitted as well.

    I got similar sounding ones on my recent purchase of a 2nd 2010 Roadster not quite stock anymore;):D

    TuneBoy used to make pods a long time ago but lost a lot of popularity when a set of them caught fire and destroyed the bike. TuneBoy was, and probably still is, expensive software and I for one stopped using it after getting no customer service after many attempts. TuneECU will probably do all you need to do.

    If you want the bike to be very close to perfectly tuned with any combination of filters and exausts, then Power Commander V with AutoTune is a great option.

    Yep I have a set of the bright Orange filters on my 2011 R3R. With Staintune mufflers and crossover. Pity the ECU ins't the same.

    Okay, to clarify.
    I have tune boy pods, I assume I have tune boy software. I do not intend to keep either because a) I can not source new filters b) there is better available.
    I intend to change the filters at the same time as putting a new exhaust in. However I have been told (including once in this thread) that tuneboy is password protected. Do I need the password to remove it and go to tune ecu or only to modify it? I would much rather get away from tune boy but if I can not get away from it due to not having the password then I would be wasting my time buying the exhaust ..

    I just got a quote from Pro Cycle Dyno at Springwood he is in a side street off moss st, he quoted me $599 to tune mine I got 3 into 1 with ramair, I could leave it as it is running a tad rich but the popping on decel has become annoying, so saving up to get the Dyno done he is recomended by many around Southside of Brisbane
