Who wants to see Nels down here?

Do you want Nels to tune your ride?

  1. I want Nels to rape my bike!

  2. It's too cold, it's too wet, bike is in storage.

    Talked with the guy a couple of weekends ago, and we need 10 or more people to get Nels down here. I haven't talked pricing yet, I wanted to feel out if I could get enough people for him to make a trip down. Once I have enough interest in this, I'll call Nels up, get pricing and set a date. Most likely it will be a Saturday, and probably at Hoodview Performance as has been done in the past. He can also do ECUnleashed, with no need for a PowerCommander. Reflashing your stock ECU is a possibility now!

    His usual rate is 175 for a custom tune, but he hinted that if we got enough people, he'd reduce that. So, who wants to get their bike tuned up before spring gets here?

  2. I'd be down for it

  3. i'm down! although it'd be a retune to work on the lower rpm ranges and see if we can figure out what the heck is going on with fueling at specific rpms while hot, not to mention the bastardly cold start issue. had to miss the last time he came down due to parent's 20 year anniversary.

    although if necessary i'd throw a bit more money in if that helped encouraged nels to come down.
  4. Just wanted to say Nels is the MAN. just had my 06 gsxr 600 tuned by him. He smoothed out my fuel quite a bit and gave me few more horsepower all the way thru. Its worth it to have him come down he knows his stuff. Has ECU unleashed now too. ( I won my tune in a contest so figured I owe him at least a few good referrals :mrgreen:

    So far I've got 5, just need another 5 more!
  6. I missed his last trip down thanks to the USPS missing their delivery date on a part :banghead: I'm in for the next time he is down!

    Ok, we're up to 8 now. Damn, this is going quick! I'll be in South Caroline Monday through Wednesday, but I can call Nels Thursday and get some pricing and availability.
  8. I wouldn't count me as one of the 10. I need him to remap my bike, as it's been mapped by him before.

    I'd shoot him some money though, though his deal was that anytime you change configs, he'd redo it.
  9. How much of a difference do you think it would make on my bike? I have a Two Brothers slip-on, but all stock otherwise with about 9000 miles on it.

    If it will make a noticable difference I would deffinately be interested especially if it is at Hoodview as I like Brian and his shop is only about a mile from my house.
  10. Nels is open for any of the next few weekend if you guys are truly interested. I just gave him a call and he said he can easily do a weekend day dyno if we can make it worth his while, which in my opinion would be keeping him busy for 8ish hours. I put him up at my place when he comes down and we can do it over at Hoodview Performance over on St.John's in Vancouver. I have enough stuff to keep him busy for an hour myself. But like I said we need to make sure there is enough real buisness to make it worth while.

    Also would need to set a date at some point. Feb 4th-5th or Feb11th-12th I will be out of town on the VBN beach trip the weekend of the Feb18th-19th so that weekend is out. Anyone else have an opinion? People need a couple weeks to be ready or is everyone ready now?
  11. I also need a remap on my bike, so I'm not sure how much he will charge but any weekend works for me.
  12. Nels:
    Always a good decision.
    Hell I wish he'd come down here and tune mine again!
    If anyone is on the fence, get off of it. This is much like buying a new bike for less than the cost of a set of tires.
  13. Just for clarification, I don't need my bike tuned, but he should still go down there.

    galenernest I bathe with candles, flowers, jazz music, and rub

    I'll need some work from Nels, but probably not until March or April.

    PCV is installed, pipes are installed, I have cash in hand. Dood needs to tune my bike!
  16. February 4-5th works better for me. I'm stuck at work all weekend, every other weekend. But if it has to be on the 11-12th I can talk a buddy into taking my bike down to Hoodview or where ever.
  17. I'm good to go now, and my only dates (in the near future) that WON"T work for me are 2/4 & 2/18
  18. DO IT, it is money well spent! depending on your bike he may be able to do an ecu unleashed reflash and you wont regret it.

    first weekend of feb works better for me as well.
