Power commander 2012 maps

Alright I need some help, I just bought a K&N air filter, a power commander V and a Toxic Big Rig exhaust for my 2012 Night Rod Special. The problem is that there is no map for this combination on the power commander that is available. Does anybody know if I could use the map for the 2011 night rod for this combination? Or does anyone have a map for a 2012? Other than that I have to take it to get dyno tuned. Is it ok to ride the bike after installing these parts and running the power commander mapped to a stock night rod? Too many variables, can anybody help?

The 2011 map should work just fine.

Did the 2011 map work for you? If it does, I wonder why they don't put it in the 2012 list? I asked the question 2 days ago on the website. Still waiting for a reply.

The bike is rideable, however there is a lot of snapping and popping on decel. It is getting too much fuel, I'm going to take it to get tuned this week.

Did you add fuel in the 0 throttle position?

Talk to el rod he will square you away, you have to add some fuel in the map in the 0 position and it should help with the popping.

Hi there, If you run the bike with the standard settings through the power commander, you may not notice any real gain in performance.
When i had my bike dyno tuned i was told that even the pre-mapped settings that do come standard for certain models may not always give the best results. To get the ultimate performance out of your combination, your best bet is to get the bike dyno tuned and have a custom map built to suit your bike. For a few extra hundered dollars you will the get the best results! hope this helps. Cheers

I appreciate the info, I got some bad information from a power commander tuning shop in woodbridge va. So this is really helpful, I'm going to see if there is a mobile tuning center at the rolling thunder ride in DC at the end of this month. Thanks

The Best Tuner to use is the Race Tuner from Harley, costs a little more but the performance so so much better since the tuner programs the computer unlike the Power Commander that trys to fool the computer installed in the bike. I have experienced both and the Race Tuner is the way to go
