K12S BrenTuning Handheld!!!

Worth every freaking penny!! No more stalling on a hot day when coming to a stop,No more stutters in low speed traffic,much more mid range torque and pulling power through out ALL the rpm range,smoother shifts and cruising at triple digits feels like I'm only doing 80mph...rode with some friends,zx-14r,a busa,a vfr 1200 and a k1300...all I can say is they was SHOCKED to see me pull away in front of the pack on a 10 mile straight road with nothing but cornfields!! Folks spend $700 for a helmet,$500 for some boots,1 piece leather suit $500-$700,GS-911 $400,Sargent seat $500 all with no added performance. To me and in my opinion it's like anything when it come to performance you gotta pay to play!! This unit put me in the winner circle while running with some bikes with more power! Some folks may not like the price but about time you buy a PC-V $400,GS-911 $400 and the labor to install the PC-V you would have spend less on the Bren Tune!! Hey for some of us our bikes are like our toys to tinker with and enhance to our liking. We all waste money sometimes on things that we want and not what we need sometimes but this was one of the best investments I've made on my K12 in a while and I don't regret it!! Thanks Bren Tune for restoring the confidence back into my K1200s!

Hey John (Jargon), have you used yours yet or is it still sitting in the drawer after three years?

Re: K12S BrenTuning Handheld!!!

Stalling at high temperatures? How how was that? Dang, that is hot.

I don't anywhere close to Bren tuning though i wish i could go there. Maryland is so far away(timw wise) to get to and have work done. I really would like to get this K12R in tip top shape. I see it as i saw it on Tourist Trophy for PS2 a decade ago. Stripped down and raced up. Glad to hear a K Bike ahead of sport bikes.

You can send the brain to Bren tuning for a flash. Lots of people have done it and are happy.
I used REXXER for the same result. Power Comander's are a pain to install and lots of extra wires. Bren and Rexxer don't show or add anything but great running. You will like it.
