Bill Westway brought his BMW K1200S in for a PC III fit and setup. Here are his initial thoughts… Dear Jill (if I’ve remembered correctly!) and Mark, I just thought I’d send you an email update on my black K1200S that you fitted a PC III to. Firstly thank you very much [...]
Tim Gilbert dropped us an email after his BMW S1000RR received some Dyno setup time… Hi Gill Thanks again I’m so pleased with the bike so much smoother lower down and mid range roll on has improved loads to. It feels so smooth everywhere not snatching like it did before, no pops or bangs (I’ll [...]
Bob Harris, a local customer, brought his GS in for a Power Commander. Now while we may remap an awful lot of KTM V-Twins, it’s good to get the odd Beemer to play with – they’re a great bike, and respond well to some Dyno time. Hi Mark, Many thanks for your work on my [...]
The customer who owns this Beemer reckons it’s a fairly economical bike to run because of its healthy power; the Power Commander fitted had definitely given him a bit more ‘go’ too, but he did feel that he’d lost some of the fuel economy. So we built him an economy map – all he has [...]
Fitted with the ‘cheat’ Power Commander PC 3 (no lambda sensor, it works a map for each cylinder individually) this BMW R1200S came in for a set-up on the Dyno. The owner is slowly turing it into an HP2 and, to be fair, when it left it was at HP2-spec on the horsepower front; 120bhp [...]
We saw this BMW S1000RR for an ECU remap when it was only 600 miles old. We explained to the owner that we would much rather map it when the engine was fully loosened up, as its fuelling needs would change. Anyway, he came back with 2,500 miles up and we had another look on [...]
The ABS model BMW S1000RR takes its speed reading from the ABS ring on the front wheel; this bike had been fitted with a Power Commander PC V and needed a speed sensor fitting to make it work properly with six individual fuelling maps, one for each gear. The PC V allows you to put [...]
A BMW S1000RR, fitted with a full Leo Vince exhaust system, bought in for an ECU remap by its owner for various reasons; apparently there are warranty issues with dealer downloads and the Power Commander route covers up some of the cracks without fully sorting all of the issues. With the full system onboard the [...]
This Café Race-style BMW R1100S is owned by one of our customers who over time is transforming it into something a bit different, which we applaud him for. He’d fitted himself a BMW-specific wide band Power Commander PC III with built-in Lambda, which constantly updates the fuelling as it goes. On the Dyno, early on [...]
A 2002 BMW R1150GS came through the workshop recently; the owner wanted to know about the full set of options available to him – which are a Power Commander PC III wide-band module, a 1200GS PC V system or the BBS chip, which ‘fools’ the ECU and richens everything up. He chose the Power Commander [...]
2010 Triumph Sprint ECU Reprogram
The issues with this bike mainly concern power and power delivery off the bottom especially two-up. It’s been back to the dealer and had the latest factory tune, but the owner wants a little more. First job? Isolate the Lambda sensor and cap off the emissions unit. The bike was then put on the Dyno and we reprogrammed the stock ECU; fuelling at the bottom end has been richened up, taking away the ‘hunting’ snatchiness. Fuelling all the way through the rev range has been optimized and the ignition curve trimmed.
2009 Yamaha R1 Road to Race
To upgrade to race spec we’ve fitted an Öhlins rear shock and MCT have modded the front forks. The engine’s been out and we’ve adjusted the cam timing, ported and skimmed the cylinder head and we’re fitting a set of BSD Performance adjustable bellmouths. It’s also having a YEC race loom and ECU, plus quickshifter.
