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 […]

Yamaha XT660X Power Commander fit and setup – an owner emails his thoughts…

Posted December 25th, 2015 in Power Commander, Yamaha.

There are a couple of Yamahas we can ECU remap – R1 model years 2007-2008 and 2012-2014, plus R6 2006-2011 – but not many. Hopefully, that will change with time. However, bikes like the single-cylinder XT660X (plus the other models that use the same basic platform) respond well to a good ol’ Power Commander, as stock they’re tuned for […]

Aprilia Tuono Power Commander fit and setup

Posted October 30th, 2015 in Aprilia, Power Commander.

Bit of a story with this Tuono. Normally, before you can do anything to it Power Commander-wise an Aprilia dealer hast to set the ECU to ‘Race Zone 2’. That switches off the lambda sensor so the PC can do its job. The owner had got a set of custom exhaust pipes and the bike […]

Honda XL1000 Varadero Power Commander setup, with Performance and Economy maps

Posted October 23rd, 2015 in Honda, Power Commander.

The owner of this Honda Varadero is a doctor from Norfolk. He bought his bike in for a fuelling setup via Power Commander (as we can’t ECU remap it at the moment) but didn’t realise we could give him to maps to use. He was happy at the news though so we gave him a ‘performance’ […]

2013 Yamaha XJR1300 fitted with modded BSD Power Commander – back in for a fuelling check now it’s loosened up!

Posted September 16th, 2015 in Power Commander, Yamaha.

Lovely bike this. This is one of the first XJR13s we gave our BSD modded Power Commander to – and it’s back because when we fitted it we told the owner that his bike was very new, and to return it back with a few miles under its wheels so we could check the map. Sure enough, […]

2013/2014 Yamaha XTZ1200s; both fitted with Power Commanders but one with a stock de-cat pipe, the other with an end-can and K&N filter

Posted September 11th, 2015 in Power Commander, Yamaha.

Interestingly both of these big Yamahas came in within a day or two of each other – and one owner went one way while the other took a different route. So one bike got a Power Commander mated to a standard – but de-catted – pipe, the other a PC matched to a free-flowing end-can. […]

2015 Yamaha XT660Z Tenere Power Commander and DNA air filter fit and setup prior to a trip to Morocco!

Posted September 4th, 2015 in Power Commander, Yamaha.

The owner of this Yamaha Tenere is slowly prepping his bike for a proper adventure ride to Morocco. He’s owned it from new and has been doing the sort of mods that make life a little easier when the going gets tough – things like a second bearing in the rear wheel hub. Our job […]

Yamaha XJR1300 modded Power Commander PC V – sent in the post and fitted by the owner… who’s sent us an email with his thoughts

Posted July 31st, 2015 in Power Commander, Yamaha.

If you own a Yamaha XJR1300 and fit an end can you’re a bit stuck when it comes to sorting the fuelling as Power Commander don’t make a PC V for these lovely bikes, and as yet we can’t remap the ECU. Over the last couple of years we’ve had enough people asking to try […]

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. […]
