My name is Nick Marino and i live in St. Louis, Mo with my beautiful wife, son Bryson and shelter dog Yukon. I've owned a 2012 WGP R1 since 2013 and I had a 2004 Yamaha R6 before that. I am now a sponsored drag racer with Driven Performance and dyno tuner for Quicktime Motorsports.
I purchased the original flash-tune software when I bought my bike, because I had heard the 07-14 R1's were very restrictive. I spent hundreds of hours developing various maps for different performance modifications and datalogged them on the street with a wideband 02 setup. I then had a few of my friends let me flash their bikes and once they realized what I was capable of, they told me I should start a business. A few weeks later I started XPLANE R1 CUSTOM TUNING and started flashing peoples bikes and the rest is history. I now flash bikes all over the world including the US, UK, Canada, Italy, and Singapore.
