I understand your position. The GET is a superior solution in so far as its capabilities for creating customized maps that can be adjusted to a finer degree (at more than 3 RPM and throttle opening points). I also understand the claim that it can ultimately extract more power from the engine than the Power Tuner can, but at $700 USD for the basic unit, it's out of reach for a lot of people. Add the $300+ for the RF configuration tool and or the Power Assist firmware upgrades, and it's over $1K. Most racers can honestly accomplish 80% of what they can do with the GET by installing a decent slip-on to free up the top end power and trimming things to suit with the Power Tuner, all for less than half the price, if they shop smart. And the truth is that most would be better advised to spend money on suspension tuning anyway, as the engine is a fairly small part of what makes a winner in MX.
(My) bike is running ... with 65hp.
I apologize if you feel slighted by this, but I have to say that this is a very dubious claim, given the difficulty that top SM and flat track tuners have in building 450cc engines that produce more than 60 hp and the amount of work that goes into them.
the gytr tuner changes so less,it not worth the money.the character of the stock yz 450 can't be changed.
You feel that the GYT-R tuner doesn't do enough to suit you. That's your opinion, and that's fine. But the statement that you can't change the character of the stock engine with it is just not true. Look at the comments following the different mappings listed in the sticky by people who have used them. The tuner also offers the ability to remap the engine at the track, and can perform several basic diagnostic procedures. Pretty good deal for the price. The basic GET unit can only be reprogrammed while connected to a computer with Internet access.
Again, understand that I don't dispute the ultimate superiority of the GET setup. It's better in many ways, no doubt. My point is that the GYT-R Power Tuner offers enough capability to make it worth its price, and given what it can do and how much it costs, it would be a far better value to me personally than the GET is. That may not be true for everyone, but the Power Tuner is certainly a worthwhile tool, and definitely not a toy.
