The Path To Power
The Path To Power 19.06.2017

How one of our customers went from a stock 2015 S1000RR to a 232whp Brentuning Monster

When we first talked to Troy, it was on the S1000RR forum. He was searching for flash solution for his 2015 S1000RR that didn’t involve going into the engine. He would be the first person to tell you that he had his doubts regarding our flashes and how much power can be gained from them. He already had a Power Commander, full Arrow Exhaust and an air filter. His bike was independently tested at Cunningham Motorsports in Southern California and dyno’d 190whp with MR12. He needed more power. After a few phone calls and a lot of questions, Troy purchased our Stage 2 flash for his S1000RR. He was on his was to California’s “Shift-S3ctor” event (standing half mile) and wanted to ensure he left with a trophy.. he wasn’t disappointed. The dyno data from his original Stage 2 flash was corrupted so we are unable to show you power gains but the results are real. First place in trap speed against a variety of sport bikes, including multiple S1000RR’s.  His bike was going at 5mph faster than any other naturally aspirated bike on the grid. Keep in mind Troy’s bike is a stock wheelbase with only a Brock’s front strap.

Troy didn’t stop there. After seeing what Brentuning could do for his bike he asked for more and we delivered. He as one of the first people to get our “Alpha N” tune on his bike. Keep in mind his bike baselined 190whp. After the “Alpha N” flash he was making 216whp! Huge gain over stock. Not to mention he got better launch control and unlocking the ECU that opens up 25 additional (inaccessible) maps in the ECU (including transmission ECU logic).





Troy took this new power to the next Shift-S3ctor event in California and cleaned house. Every other S1000RR was trapping in the high 160’s to low 170’s while Troy managed to get 180mph. This was achieved in 4000DA. Pretty impressive.


Another first place win for Troy and his Brentuning S1000RR



Troy wasn’t done there. He wanted to beat 180mph. The next step was our Stage 2 Cam Package. These are our own cams that are exclusively made through us with our own grind specs. Stock idle and and big gains. Troy installed these cams and saw the biggest gain we’ve ever seen in our Stage 2 Cams, 16whp on his own dyno. Keep in mind this is the same dyno he had been using since his start with us in 2015. This is a mustang dyno just like ours and it’s nice to see independent testing that mirrored our same results.

232whp with our Alpha N Flash and our Stage 2 Cams, baseline of 190hwp



The dyno graph below shows the gains from the “Alpha N” to adding cams.  You can see how there is no loss in power and huge gains on the top end of the RPM range.  You can see where the stock cams start to lay over but our Stage 2 cams carry power all the way to the limiter with more to go. Cams add 16whp! (As tested independently by a third party dyno)



Troy went out to the next Shift-S3ctor event (February 2017) and got first place in trap speed again! This time he managed to reach 183mph. This bike is fast!

Congrats, Troy. To this victory and many more to come with us!

  • “ Bike is running awesome and no out of the ordinary popping under load during downshifts at high rpm. My hats off to your team for making me feel like I have a personal tuner at my disposal. Really appreciate the quick turnaround to get me straight. I can definitely feel the extra power! ”

  • “ This product is amazing.  I feel like I have a better version of my bike.  Like it should have come this way.  The throttle smoothness and even power band make it a joy to ride.  I no longer feel as if I'm riding a wild bronco lol. Thank you again, I didn't think that a L-twin could behave this well.  Also, your customer service is the best.  I could always reach you by email or phone.  I will tell everyone I know about this fantastic addition.  Keep up the great work, guys! ”

  • “ I have a 2015 S1000RR and was extremely skeptical when I heard about BrenTuning and the power they got out of an ECU flash.  After speaking with the team at BrenTuning, all my hesitations were put to rest and I haven't stop winning first place trophies since! BELIEVE THE HYPE! ”

  • “ Bren and his team did an awesome job on my bmw s1000rr. Went from 179rwhp an 83 rwtq to 206 rwhp and 93rwtq. Customer service was great and I highly recommend them for any of y'all that want to make that power!! ”

  • “ Purchased the tune for my 2015 BMW S1000RR. Was skeptical at first and initially had a bunch of questions. Chris was very patient with me and answered them all. Had some problems after receiving my ecu back and Chris was very helpful in getting all my issues worked out. Bike runs fantastic. Definitely worth it. Thank you again guys for dealing with my questions and taking care of everything before and after the purchase. Fantastic customer service. ”

  • “ After doing some research it was obvious that Brentuning was the best option for tuning of my S1000RR. I wont go into details but after multiple overnighting of parts to me at no additional charge, I'm really impressed and satisfied with the end result and I haven't even tried out my race fuel tune yet! To top if off I received a random care package of goodies from Chris today. The customer service at Brentuning is probably the best I've received from any business I've dealt with. Their email response times are unreal as well, lol. Literally sometimes instantly, kinda weird. lol. I would recommend any and everyone to Brentuning for your S1000RR tuning solution. If anyone has any questions or are hesitant before purchasing, feel free to shoot me a message and I'll help / assist / give you a more detailed opinion on my experience as well. ”

  • “ I have the Bren Tuning ECU flash on my 2015 BMW S1000RR and it is unbelievable how fast this bike is. This tune is the best thing I got for my bikes. I have also did the Bren Tune for my 2014 BMW S1000r for which it just made this bike really nice. Bren Tuning is the best. ”
