Anybody's been working with both of these and can recommend one?
Twinmax
Carbtune

So far I've only been working with the round gauges and would love something more stable. Since I only own two cylinder bikes both would be fine.

Twin Max is a horrible thing. So horrible I gave mine away to someone so primitive he thinks carburettors are a nice thing! (Some people won't understand this.)

Carbtune is a fine tool.

Just an opinion, but one based on experience rather than hearsay.

I know lots of people think I'm an opinionated dolt but I find that on the internet especially it is best to state one's case clearly and concisely. Pussyfooting about and trying to be *Nice* about everything is rarely productive. I try hard not to be rude but some people have such a thin skin that if they aren't agreed with they feel slighted. It is never my intention but, if they feel that way? Sorry, not my problem! Believe me, if I think you are a 'Rhymes with Runt' I will tell you!

I think most people who have met me, (And a lot on this board have.) know that I'm neither a condescending and patronising prick or a bully. I'm just a comaratively harmless idiot who happens to be fairly knowledgeable about Moto Guzzis and midget porn.

I don't know from Twinmax, but I've been using the Morgan Carbtune for several years now and am very happy with the way it performs.

Best sort. Tiny files so they download really quickly and they're small enough to fit on the screen of your phone. What's not to like?

Didn't like the Twinmax bouncing needle; it never seemed to dial in enough. But if you like the digital route, this is what I use and it works great (I think anyway): https://tecmate.com/products/carbmate/

As far as midget porn, well ... Mr. Roper makes a compelling case  Wink

I explained that to a nerdy bloke in the pub a couple of years ago and his response was "It doesn't work like that.".

Seriously! I felt like calling an ambulance as the retard's sense of humour had obviously had a life threatening FAIL!

People, at least some people, must live in a horribly cold, dark, humourless world!

I like my carbtune. I've had it since my Suzuki days. That'd be the Cryptozoic era. It's never let me down.




cheers

Thanks to all. Seems to be a clear picture -apart from the midget porn.

@Pete: That wasn't criticism, just a thank you. There are dozens of threads on the net about these tools, telling you that "you can use both or even better a tube level" -that doesn't help. I kinda like clear answers. Even more than reproducing midgets.
