Power Commander - Auto Tune Testing
In this video I show you how to make sure your Auto Tune is working, and to
make sure that you've got your switch (if you have one) in the right
position. This was done on a 2009 CBR1000RR ABS, with a TaylorMade slip-on,
Bazzaz Z-Bomb, BMC Air Filter, and a full PC-V setup. Basically I bump the
air/fuel ratio to about 20 (lambda to about 1.4'ish) by removing 30% of the
fuel at idle. Don't do this for very long, as running this lean can destroy
your engine after extended periods. You'll see that my PC-V is only
removing 20%, and that's because the Auto Tune is currently configured to
only allow 20% in either direction. This is a safe-guard for the people who
don't install a switch. The bike wont leave them stranded if the O2 sensor
goes haywire, because it will still run close enough to 1.0 lambda that you
can at least get home.
DynoJet Research Power Commander PCIII Mapping Video DynoJet's Dan Berkes
walks www.CruiserCustomizing.com through the specifics and mapping of the
Power Commander PCIII.
This is the new improved version with a USB port instead of a serial port.
The PC is a fuel injection and ignition timing (on some models) adjustment
unit that plugs "inline" with the bikes' stock ECU. The PC uses original
equipment style connectors so that no splicing or cutting of the harness is
required. Most installations take less than 15 minutes, some as little as 5
minutes. Changes are made to the bikes fuel and ignition curves via the
PC's onboard microprocessor.
Using this technology we are able to offer a large area of adjustment
without making any permanent changes to the bikes' ECU (electronic control
unit). Removing the PC returns the bike to its previous stock condition.
The Power Commander can be ordered preprogrammed with your choice of
several settings, based on the modifications to your bike. The unit also
comes complete with software and cable link that allows you to change
between different maps or make adjustments to a map file.
