General Power Commander Stuff

So the rain has me soooo bored. I decided to download and read all the powercommander stuff for my bike. So I figured out the basics but there is all this advanced stuff you can do. My question is does anyone have any good advice, good links, or general info on the best ways to mess with this stuff is. Or is it simply better just to go with the download pre-made maps for your bike/exhaust system?

Thanks in advance

The best thing is to have it dyno tuned and mapped. If that isnt an option, use one of dynojets maps for your bike. They are pretty close. Dont try and make a map yourself if you dont have a wego or wideband, you will only make your bike run worse.

I was going to use one of the pre-defined map but I figured there is a way to tune it past that. There is no way I would create my own map from scratch. Just figured maybe someone does this alot and knows which things to step up a notch or two.

But that brings up a good point. How much does dyno-tuning cost? And who is the best at it?

Waylan at Bob Lunsfords has done a # of my bikes and is quite good at it. DO NOT try to develop your own map. It is a quick and easy way to ruin your bike.

Ahh... that makes me sad. I am a computer guy and they gave me this really neat interface to change things with. I'll take your advice but there has to be some way to learn this right?

You need a dyno.

andy @ metric cycles, freddy @ eastside honda, billy @ tejas motorsports all know their stuff. About $200. You can map yourself, its really not that hard, but will cost you more. Buy a wideband commander and record your a/f ratio at different rpms. Go into your pc and make changes needed to get the desired a/f ratio. Cost of wideband commander $500. hen you can tune your bike for different weather. Your choice

I backed up my old map and mapped it with the newest one for my bike and exhaust. There are so many buttons and options you can change though and all I got to do was push 3 buttons. Just seems there should be more I can do with the one I got I will see what I can find out about the wideband one, that seems like more fun. Thanks for the info.

With the software there is even more fine tuning that can be done.

Without anything to read the CO under load out of the pipe, you cannot accurately adjust the fuel in the bike.

That is what I thought! Which is why I said he would need a dyno.
