No, that is a strictly driving tune. So you have the regular street tune?

You can do like Will said and just watch your egts but If it were me, I would go back to stock. You still have to think about cylinder pressure and most of all your transmission. You would be kicking yourself if something went wrong and all you had to do is change tunes which takes 5 minutes.

Hmm, well I just pulled a 5x9 trailer with a motorcycle loaded from Ky to NC and it did fine? EGT's never got above 1000. At 70 they were around 800...

I might do what you said and just go to stock.

I know what you mean. I pull my 4 wheeler on a 4x8 all the time and it does fine but that camper is heavier and has a lot more drag/friction.
