Honda CB1000R Power Commander PC V fit and Dyno setup

Posted October 17th, 2013 in ECU Remap, Honda, Power Commander.

The owner of this CB1000R lives in London and brought his bike to us because he was struggling in heavy traffic with the on/off throttle behaviour – these can quite snatchy in their power delivery (not something you’d say often these days with a Honda) and this one was bad.

We can’t remap Honda ECUs just yet so we had no option but to fit a Power Commander PC V, but we also disconnected all the flaps and the secondary air system. After re-fuelling the bottom end a lot of the snatchiness was gone and it was much sweeter. To be fair a great deal of the interference is caused by the emissions equipment, so just getting rid of it all helped…

Turning off the emissions gubbins and dialling in a PC V has sorted this CB1000R's throttle response.
