Harley-Davidson XR1200 Power Commander setup to cure snatchy power delivery

0 Comments Posted November 2nd, 2016 in Harley Davidson, Power Commander.

Now we quite liked the look of this H-D XR1200 – very pretty. It was a later EURO 3 spec emissions model and had a rare old snatch in its power delivery, so our job was to map the Power Commander and dial it in on the Dyno. We remapped each cylinder for fuel individually, and […]

Harley-Davidson Softail carb setup after engine tune – and an extra 8bhp found…

Posted February 15th, 2016 in Carburettors, Harley Davidson.

The owner of this H-D Softail had running problems after some engine tuning – skimmed and ported heads, plus open pipes. And it wasn’t too difficult to find out why; it was using a big 190 main jet and was rich enough to effectively cancel out any gains from the headwork. The poor thing was drowning in […]

Harley-Davidson V-Rod Power Commander PC V setup – and it’s uncorked big style!

Posted July 15th, 2015 in Harley Davidson, Power Commander.

We don’t see many Hogs through the BSD doors but we do like ’em when they turn up. This V-Rod had the bigger capacity engine and was great to work on. Through the PC V we built a map for each cylinder individually and eliminated the 02 sensors – the perfect job to uncork the potential stored away. […]

2005 Harley-Davidson FXST1450 carb setup to match its Vance & Hines exhaust

Posted December 1st, 2014 in Carburettors, Harley Davidson.

This Harley had some V&H pipes onboard but we had feeling that at some point in its prior life it had had open pipes fitted, with carbs sorted to match, then put back on stock pipes when it was sold – with carb setup left as was. Its new owner took it back to where […]

Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide Sport Power Commander setup – 75bhp and a velvet carpet ride!

Posted September 26th, 2014 in Harley Davidson, Power Commander.

Now here’s a shocker… everybody thinks Harleys are 54bhp tractors, but not this one – 75bhp! It’s an early fuel injected model and we reckon they slipped it out the back door while nobody was watching. As far as getting the Power Commander spot on we did each cylinder individually; it didn’t have a lambda […]

Harley-Davidson Dyna Glide Screaming Eagle exhaust setup

Posted November 26th, 2012 in Harley Davidson, On the Dyno.

We’ve been getting a few Harley Davidsons rolling through the workshop recently, and it’s nice to occasionally work on something a little different. An older Hog fitted with a Mikuni carb, this Dyna Glide had been kitted with a Dynojet kit to match the Screaming Eagle exhausts. The owner had no real knowledge of its […]

Harley-Davidson Electra Glide Dynojet Power Vision setup

Posted November 5th, 2012 in ECU Remap, Harley Davidson.

This Harley-Davidson Electra Glide came to us for a Dynojet Power Vision setup (a Power Vision is a Harley-specific product, their version of H-D’s software to allow you to remap the ECU). Once we opened it up it was obvious the software was almost identical – so you make changes to the Power Vision then […]

Two owners email – H-D Night Rod Power Commander fit & Ducati 748 ECU remap

Posted October 8th, 2012 in Ducati, ECU Remap, Harley Davidson, Owner's Words, Power Commander.

A couple of owners emailed their thoughts after some Dyno time… (no pics because Gill was whitewashing the gravel). Hi, Just to let you know I have now tried out my H-D Night Rod since having the Power Commander and K&N filter and response now is really good and crisp. I am really pleased with the results, […]
