Yes the JD Tuner is definitely money well spent. You can find my settings in the link earlier in this thread - my bike has Power Up, Arrow pipes with the new ECU, and open Airbox with one of those EHS (I think) membranes covering the opening.

Most people do not have the new ECU which I understand makes also quite a big change, but you can try my settings and wee how it goes (the beauty of JD is that you can always reset it back where it was).

Give it a try and let us know how it goes.

That ECU only comes (came) with the Arrows as I understand.

Yes, unfortunately they never sold ECU separately. But maybe you can score on somewhere on eBay if you are patient.

Irridium plugs - not sure what exactly the problem is, but was told not to use them with leaded fuel. At the end of the day the bikes goes well, so I didn't investigate further.

I have heard some say that iridium and platinum plugs are just mostly hype - they all make a good spark just that the iridium is harder than copper alloy and will outlast the others. Also because they have a smaller harder electrode they are not normally manually gapped as it can be damaged but then generally also do not need regular gap setting as they do not erode like a normal copper electrode. The fact is that copper is a better conductor

Can you program it via a interface like a PC V ?

No need, it has buttons on the module where you can dial in any setting.

Mounted mine under the seat, using the velcro supplied, so it's very easy to remove when adjusting.
It also uses carburettor logic to program it.

At the moment I just left it on the settings the tuner came with, and it makes such a difference, it feels like a completely different bike!
Go round a tight bend in second, shift clutchlessly to 3rd as you get through the bend and open the throttle, and the back wheel spins up so ferociously the bike hits the rev limiter! This thing is just amazing. On tar where you can put the power down without spinning it feels very strong, I am not going to guess how much stronger, but it will leave a standard 610 in the dust big time. Best mod I made to my bike.
