Power Commander

Hi,

I have the GSXS F version and recently got my bike installed with a Power Commander with a custom map. I have not replaced the standard exhaust as my aim was to smooth my ride out.

I must say the bike is now running really well and very smooth especially around the 30mph mark.

Only issue so far. My MPG went from 52mpg to around 42mpg. Which is a huge drop and I now have to fill up every day because of the milage a do every day apart from every second day.

smooth and thirst

would be interesting for you to load the stock dynojet map that comes pre-loaded in the unit and run it along side your custom map using a switch to swap between the two and see if you notice any difference in smoothness and mpg per tank. I'm running the stock map with no mods and there doesn't seem to be much difference in mpg but it definitely runs and pulls smoother.

We're here for a good time, not a long time. (woolich, PCv, K&N, T-Rex, HM plus SS)

Mileage isn't a huge concern for me but the the new tune is a tad underwhelming imo, you still have a dip in power right in the middle of the rev range, that is going to be my primary reason for a PC and tune. These bikes feel promising right when the throttle is cracked open only to be let down right in the mid range, then of course she runs like a banshee on top.

You mention a "custom map" in your post. Do you mean that your bike was put on a dyno and a map was created for your bike at your location? If so, are you willing to share the map? A thread was created recently to serve as a repository for PCV maps but none have been added the last time I checked the thread.

Interesting thread and good information by thread starter.
Was the "usual" procedure with use of an O2-"eliminator" followed when the PCV was installed?
If yes, I think this may explain the "bad" effect on milage.

For some this is a acceptable tradeoff for getting a more smooth ride/more power in the area where the stock ECU gives (very) good milage/"snatchy" throttle.

I'm glad I was patient enough not to get a Power Commander. I'm at 3,700 miles and my bike is one of the smoothest bikes I've owned, and that's with a full exhaust. It took time for the bike to break in and the computer to learn. Except for the Harley, of course. That was smoother because when I twist the throttle nothing happens. It was so slow the engine didn't have enough power to jerk the bike forward or back. I have to say that my 1990s 600 class bikes were the jerkiest. It was nearly impossible to ride in first gear.

This is only relevant for Norwegian members I guess

I see that this guy is one of the "oldtimers" in the tuning business.
Expert on V-Max, but he has obviously updated himself during the years.
Can absolutely recommend him.
He has been located at Skytta and Askim before and have a very good reputation AFAIK.

I heard about this Guy when he was in Askim. Couple of guys in the club got their bikes done with him and were very happy. Let me know how it goes as i might go pay him a visit later on this year.
