PCIII?!?

hey everyone... i bought a pcIII about a week ago and wanted to know if anyone could help me put it on? i read the instructions and it doesnt seem to be too difficult, but i would rather have someone that knows how to install it give me a hand so that i can learn as well as help others in the future.... thanks

dave

I will be a little busy this month but if no one else comes forward we can arrange something.

What do you have done to the bike? Are you dynoing? or Mapping?

i have a akra hex exhaust, bmc race filter (power mods), and i have other exterior mods..... i got the pcIII from fuelmotousa and they dynoed a bike with the same setup so i had them put the map on my pcIII. i know that it isnt as good as a custom dyno, but it will suffice for now and i will eventually get a custom tune...... installing it doesnt seem to difficult, but i just would rather have someone that knows how to do it be there so if i am installing it incorrectly then they would be able to let me know... thanks caligonetx

Should be plug n play for you then.

Follow the directions and you should be fine.

Regarding mapping, chances are that (as you apparently know) the map won't be just right, but should at least be ball park. You can dl other maps from dynojet.com too to try for your bike if it's way off.

Best bet is to take the bike with the new PCIII to Andy at Metric Motorcycles www.metricmotorcycles.com, and let him install and dyno-tune it for you.

He just did my new map with a PCIII and I was very happy with the power gains and performance at the last track day Monday

It's a little money to spend on something that will benefit you for the rest of the time you own the bike. Not to mention, you're gonna be really pizzed if you install the PCIII with the map they gave you and it causes any issues.

Check the web site- but the way I get there is take 610 north from 59 (by the Galleria), exit Shepard/ Durham, go through both lights (Shepard and Durham) and make the next right. Take that street to 27th and turn right. Shop will be on the left.

its probably going to be alot of money...dyno testing is really pricey and you all ready have a tune on there that is probably close and good enough for your bike....i would install it yourself just to get to know ur bike...just take your time and follow the directions...i just intalled mine friday on my zx-14...took me 20 minutes ...good luck

well with the akra exhaust, pc3, and bmc race filter i dont expect a whole lot of top end, but a decent increase in midrange for better daily riding. With just the akra on i noticed a difference in the midrange.

I would think if you had a full system it would tend to open up the mid and top since it has better flow. The PCM will optimise all rpm/load variables.
