Hello,

I have a v-rod 2002, is there any gain at all to install a Power Commander on a stock bike?
I´m looking for a new exhaust system but meanwhile...
I have the PC III in a box ;)
But is it any idea to install the PC III before getting there??


Cheers

the pwr cmdr will not be a gain on a completely stock motorcycle...if you change the pipe or go with a low restriction air filter then you need a tuner to add fuel to maintain a proper a/f after the changes...

I thought so but since there is a zero map (M809-000.map)
and a stock bike map (M809-001.map) it makes me curious....
I can understand that the "zero" map does nothing.

But the 001 map must have something more or???
And the file size is a little bit bigger :)

I currently am running a PC3USB on my '08 with a K & N air filter. It is zeroed out and it runs great. I previously had a CFR muffler but when I went back to the stock muffler I kept the PC3 and and K & N. I was told that the bike runs lean from the factory and that it would be worth it to keep the PC3 rather than going back to the O2 sensors. Seems to work for me.

a zero map is not changing the the tune up..if it runs good with a zero map it will run the same with the pwr cmdr removed..and even though it is really rare hd tech has said that piggy back systems can cause the stock ecm to fail.. haven`t seen it happen but a piggy back does increase electrical loads on the ecm circuits..
