Soo it's not an actual dyno jet product right, just a different mfg. all together.
First time I've heard of it. Gonna do a little research on it, then I'll come back. I'm assuming it runs off your MAP sensor to detect load and adjust fuel accoringly.

I haven't used one yet, I've been playing with another similar system though.

In theory it sounds good, however many bikes don't make their best power at a static preset A/F ratio.

There is no mythical optimum target A/F ratio.

Yes, there is a baseline to use as a reference point, but it's not always where the engine will make the most power / have the best driveability.

My 2 cents.

i dont know much about it.. just what the manufacture printed and you know they all lie.. was curious , might want to try it.. guaranteed or your money back.. not a bad deal. most electronic stuff is not returnable.. let me know what you find out...

i did read it... i'll wait for a few real life trials before i pass a judgement. i was thinking the same thing as Patirck though... it is all preset... not all busa's for example have the same set up. so many mods how can it be pre-installed with the right configuration.

It would appear to be 1/2 of a Power Commander. And very similar to the Two Bros Juice Box.

from their website:
Quote:
Why does PowerCard only add fuel?
It is true that PowerCard only adds fuel. We designed it that way to keep it simple and affordable. Our belief is that in almost every situation, addition of fuel is what modern fuel injected vehicles need. In order to meet stringent emission standards, fuel systems are mapped by the factory to be lean in cruise and everyday driving conditions. If you decide to modify your vehicle with intake, header, exhaust, cams, and so on, these upgrades often increase your engine's volumetric efficiency and lean out the fuel system even more. PowerCard gives you the ability to add fuel exactly where you need it.
Believe it or not there may be times when you do want less fuel than what the stock ECU requests.
