Power Commander

Victory Hammer S, fitted with induction tubes and Power Commander Dyno setup

0 Comments Posted December 15th, 2017 in Power Commander, Victory.

We’ve had a run on Victory motorcycles this year and we quite like ‘em – they’re not a Harley or Japanese, a but bit inbetween… And they make decent power, are well equipped with forks and brakes, and not stupidly heavy! But all that’s beside the point. As far as sorting the fuelling they need […]

Yamaha XJR1300 (in Sweden) with BSD-mapped Power Commander PC V – the owner emails his thoughts…

0 Comments Posted April 28th, 2017 in Power Commander, Yamaha.

Gill ordered Mattias (who lives in Sweden) a Power Commander PCV for his Yamaha XJR1300 – we dialled a sweet fuelling map into it, popped it in the post and left it to him! He’s been kind enough to drop us an email with his thoughts and a couple of pics of his tasty XJR… Cheers […]

BMW R nineT Power Commander PC V Dyno set up to sort disastrous fuelling courtesy of an over-eager Autotuner

2 Comments Posted February 15th, 2017 in BMW, Power Commander.

This was a customer request: he arrived with his saucy Beemer loaded up with bits and had been told that fitting a Power Commander plus Autotuner would equal a self-mapping setup. In other words he’d read what it says on the label and believed every word! Predictably, it didn’t do anything of the sort and […]

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 […]

2015 Triumph Daytona 675R Power Commander PC V fit and setup – a good bike made better!

0 Comments Posted September 28th, 2016 in Power Commander, Triumph.

This beauty is the latest model 675 which we can’t ECU remap: Triumph have deliberately made these – the last of this incarnation of the 675 engine in EURO 3 spec – tamper proof. A Power Commander is the only option to dial in the fuelling to suit an end-can, so we bolted one in […]

BMW S1000XR Power Commander PC5 fit and Dyno setup – whatever you do don’t bother with a full system…

0 Comments Posted September 21st, 2016 in BMW, Power Commander.

If you own one of these and are fitting anything other than an exhaust end-can you are completely wasting your money. Full systems may save a bit of weight, but they won’t do much else. You certainly won’t end up with any more power… And this is the trait of the EURO 4 spec motorcycle. […]

Yamaha XJR1300 – the customer sourced it, we fettled it then posted it to Dubai!

0 Comments Posted July 27th, 2016 in Power Commander, Yamaha.

We got an email – which we thought was a wind-up – asking if we could work on XJR1300 and then post it to Dubai… Gill emailed the chap back for a few more details and fair enough it was for real. He planned to source a secondhand bike in the UK (he didn’t want a new […]

BMW S1000XR – its second visit to get the Power Commander dialled in to the Arrow exhaust

1 Comment Posted July 15th, 2016 in BMW, Power Commander.

A story within a story here; most of these 2016 Euro-4 spec bikes like this BMW tend to carry a huge canister of an exhaust tucked underneath. This allows the manufacturer an awful lot of scope for siting catalytic converters, crucially though without a lot of restrictions. And here’s the point – we fitted a […]

2016 BMW S1000XR Power Commander fit and setup – a good engine made better!

Posted May 16th, 2016 in BMW, Power Commander.

Now this Beemer maybe (slightly) odd-looking but it’s great to ride. As with a lot of these things you take a big, powerful engine, adjust the cam timing to move the power down the range, dial in a little less compression and suddenly you have a lovely, flexible motor. Which is actually very useful on the […]

Honda VFR800 Power Commander PC III fit and setup – an owner emails his thoughts…

Posted February 17th, 2016 in Honda, Power Commander.

Andrew, the owner of this VFR800, phoned Gill looking for advice. He’d gone online and bought an ‘old’ Power Commander PC III serial port – we explained that the spacing on these was too great within the rpm sectors and to get a good result the later USB model was needed. He found a used […]
