And they never explained it properly to me and Im not ashamed to ask. How does one tune a rapid bike or tuneboy and get a map that they are happy with? How does one know what parameters they need? I am clueless to this. Just trying to be taught on this method. When I track any of my bikes that have fuel management systems , depending on the track or where I am some friends play around with my tunes but never explained it to me so that I understand.
Rapidbike is supposed to tune itself but I have no experience with it. You load Tuneboy yourself with a computer and a piece of hardware that comes with the Tuneboy software. You have to be comfortable with using a computer and flashing ECUs but it isn't hard. It comes with some standard tunes for different exhaust setups but to get the most out of it you should probably visit a dyno tuner.

Thanks for the feedback. Even though Im clueless how to tune the parameters on fuel management systems and make maps. Im comfortable loading a map into a power commander or any other unit if the map is made. And i am comfortable flashing an ecu if its as easy as you say with the instructions. After doing research on the tune boy , i didnt know whether to get the tune boy or rapid bike. However I settled on the rapid bike because i liked the way it was on my monster 1200s and thought the ecu had to be sent out for the tune boy. Now i know that i can reflash my ecu with the tuneboy. I looked up tuneboy but they dont make anything for bmws. So ill end up getting the rapid bike for my 2016 S1000RR and keep the power commander 5 with autotune on my 2015 S1000R. If i can sell the power commander ill get a rapid bike for the S1000R unless I can sell it along with its 39 mods (overkill i know). And pick up a aprilia tuono factory and then add a tune boy

We offer tuning for these bikes far superior to any piggyback module and much more in-depth and advanced than Tuneboys offering. Tuneboy is fine for most users but misses many of the most important tables on these bikes.

We offer full AlphaN fueling conversion which greatly improves power and ridability, especially in the part to low throttle range where these bikes need it most. We also improve throttle response, power (of course), quick shifter, timing etc.

Available via our easy to use handheld tuning device, you will just need to simply read/write the ECU which only requires access to a windows based computer. I have independently verified 199WHP (93 octane) 1299's via Ducati Detroit's dyno.

I Ride: Something Faster Than Me (1199R)
I have had both on my 2013 1199R. The tuneboy is much more hands-on when getting to know the system and using it. I struggled a lot and had a tuner help (@ additional cost) that used to support TB. I picked the TB solely for downshift blipping. He reluctantly did it and got it working on the dyno. I got it home and it did not work. I finally just left the module plugged in and rode the bike up the road. It worked. This is for a racebike so I am limited in on-road testing. Track only. Currently everything works but as a previous poster stated...the settings need work. I had such a hard time I am scared to touch a thing...lol. If the other tuners offered a blip function I would have surely went another route. The install on the rapidbike was a bit of a pain but not terrible. The support from RapidBike is outstanding! Zohsix and Yaman are as customer focused as I have seen. I ended up putting the rapidbike on my 675R and it is slowly learning and making corrections. Again, it is a racebike so I must ride it on track for the learning. Just adding info to the thread. I am sure there are quite a few people mulling this decision. I have found some great info on this forum.
