Honda XL1000 Varadero Power Commander setup, with Performance and Economy maps
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’ map, which ran a standard air/fuel ratio and an ‘economy’ map, with AFR of 13.6, to deliver better mpg when cruising.
These engines are quite juicy – remember the VTR1000, 80-90 miles and panic – and in truth you could run on the economy map most of the time. Still good to have options, and a switch to swap between ’em.
