2017 1000R flash / tune ?

I hello all , I'm about to hit 600 miles and going in for my first service now We all know this Bike is super restricted So I looked up the ecu reflash from Schnitz motorsports and from what it's says for 200 bucks it'll open it right up however the dealer is telling me I need a power comander , reflash and dyno which is going to costs around 1400 including my 600 mile service . So I'm unsure what I should do , do I really need what the dealer is selling ? Or will the schnitz refalsh serfice ?

most of the "reflash" services i have had to fix you dont need a PC and the PC will not derestrict it. it cant.
you will need it flashed. no mater what.
the differance is how good is the map they are putting in your box. if it isnt good you could get a PC and
get it tuned properly to repair their poor fuel tables.

i had a local customer send his ecu to a motor builder in the south (not KWS) and his bike was so rich it
made 8 hp less then a stock ecu and 14 hp less than a good tune in the ECU he said it felt great and smooth. problem was it was so smooth it was slow.
it cost him 250 for a "custom" flash that was a total loss of money.

I had Danos Performance flash my 07 750 ECU, it was so good that when I had my bike tuned through my bazzaz it made 1 more hp and ,Anthony at Bauce where I had it done, only had to smooth out a couple of spots.....Id hit Dano up and see if he can do it.
